“I do NOT have a green thumb and am scared of killing plants. What do you think would be the easiest option for a beginner?” - Lauren, Portland

Hey Lauren! We totally hear you. It’s natural to feel a bit hesitant when it comes to plants, but we’re 100% certain that you’ve got this under control.

While we know you’ll be a great plant parent, we do have a suggestion if you’re looking for something a bit easier to tend to. Pothos are an ideal indoor choice for beginners and those seeking a low maintenance plant in their lives.

A traditional Pothos Jade will add the perfect pop of green to your environment and won’t require all too much attention in order for it to thrive. With its trailing vines, this will grow downward and spruce up any surface it’s placed on.

Whether you decide to set this up on a bookshelf or have it situated in a hanging basket, we’re positive you’ll be able to keep this plant looking happy for many years to come!
