Are you one of those people who just can't keep a plant alive, no matter how hard you try? Despite your less-than-green thumb, you can still turn your home into a veritable garden. These five botanical beauties require no water at all. Literally.
1. Snake Plant
This popular evergreen houseplant thrives in low light and irregular watering. In fact, the only way you could possibly kill it is by over-watering it, so plan to only reach for that sprinkler once a month.
2. ZZ Plants
The lowest of low-maintenance plants, this herbaceous perennial can be left in a dark closet for months without touching it and the leaves would still look fresh and glossy. Since it doesn't require much sunlight, the virtually indestructible houseplant is ideal for sprucing up a dreary office desk or windowless bathroom.
Like a cross between a dandelion and a rock, this velvety ball of algae is bizarre-looking, yet strangely adorable. They also adapt to cool, low-light environments, so keep them out of direct sunlight. Just remember to freshen up their aquarium with clean water every two weeks.
A surefire way to kill these hardy succulents? Not giving them enough sunlight, although direct sunlight is not recommended. On the whole, this plant is drought-resistant, but we recommend adding some H2O at least once a month.
5. Preserved Hanging Amaranthus
Draped across a bookshelf or fashioned into a decorative centerpiece, the cascading tendrils on this plant add ethereal, woodland forest vibes to any space. While the individual strands are rather delicate, this plant is not technically alive, so it doesn't need to be cared for.
