The Houseplant That You Don’t Have to Water Often

From flawlessly introducing a trendy plant to tackling windowless room woes, our plant specialist Chrissy will set you up with the perfect plant pick.

“I often forget to water my plants — whoops! What’s a good option for me that can handle staying a bit dry?” - Heather, Forest Hills

We’ve all been there - busy at work, heading out for a long weekend getaway - and that’s when it all of a sudden hits. You have plants that you’ve totally forgotten about...

Self-labeled “plant killer”? Succulents are a must for you. Even if the watering can tends to slip your mind from time to time, these bright-light loving cuties will be just fine staying dry for a bit.

One of the most tolerant of options is the spiky standout, the Haworthia Zebra. Whether it’s set on your sunny desk at work or situated on a sill at home, this petite (but showy) desert-dweller can handle an at-home drought like a champ.

With only the need for a drink about once every two to three weeks - when the soil is totally dry - these are a great option for even the most forgetful of plant owners.
