This purple beauty, sometimes referred to as “Purple Shamrock” or “False Shamrock”, is native to Brazil rather than Ireland and are equally appealing as an outdoor plant or a houseplant.
I’ve compiled a list of five plants that are *actually* the most undemanding houseplants. I would even go so far as to say you could stick these in a room and turn off the light for a couple of weeks and although it would be mad at you and develop some trust issues but it wouldn’t be dead.
“Water your plants once a week” is common advice that suggests that you need to stick to a regular schedule. But it doesn’t work like that. Why?
Limited well-lit space for my plants is an issue in my urban apartment, so when I transplanted the spiderettes that were rapidly outgrowing their small pots, I combined them into one container as one plant to save on valuable sill space. You can do this with many different plants, not just spider plants!
