“I want to incorporate some greenery into my place, but I am SO busy! I travel a lot for work, so low maintenance is key. What fits my lifestyle?” —Kara, LA

Hey, Kara! We totally feel your pain when it comes to those busy schedules. Despite what you may think, there are some great low maintenance options for you.

Plants that allow you to still be a jetsetter, but not have to worry about coming home to sad leaves? They exist, and we’re here to guide you.

Since the Snake Plant Laurentii only needs to be watered about once every two weeks — and can tolerate essentially any light thrown their way (including low light!) — this plant has become a favorite amongst those who can’t commit too much time to being a plant parent.

With their vertical growth, this succulent is an ideal choice to introduce into your setup in the most understated of ways. Those sleek green leaves outlined in a bright yellow hue creates a contrast that will give your indoor jungle an ideal boost in plant-friendly vibes.
