I have a brown thumb. What’s the easiest houseplant to grow, especially in low light? Gee, I’m really sorry about your thumb but trust me, there at least two houseplants that I can recommend that are about as easy to grow as fake plants.
The first is the Chinese evergreen. This beauty isn’t at least a bit fussy. It adapts well to the home environment and thrives in low light. All you really need to do to keep it healthy is to make sure the soil doesn’t dry out. The other is the ZZ plant, Zamioculcas zamiifolia. It has attractive fleshy leaves and can grow to three feet. It’s as full proof as houseplants get, no kidding. It actually thrives on neglect. In fact they can grow in a dark corner of the house and go for weeks without water.
