1. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera doesn?t like when it?s cold and frozen outside, so
it?s best to keep it inside during winter. It needs good potting
soil and a pot that allows drainage, because otherwise the
roots might rot if being exposed to water for longer period of
time. This plant doesn?t need to be fertilized and its
leaves grow upward from the base. Aloe is not only popular
houseplant choice because of its look, but because of the
health properties it has as well.
2. English Ivy
The English Ivy is a climber that doesn?t require too much
work around it. Make sure to water the plant and keep the soil
moist until it is established and it grows, after that it doesn?t
need watering that much. The plant doesn?t need fertilizer
most of the time as well and when grown indoors, it?s
important to plant the English Ivy in pots with stakes that
allow it to vertically climb, or in basket where it can tumble
over the edges.
