Pothos are one of the easiest houseplants to own, making them fantastic additions to your home. It’ll forgive you if you forget to water it regularly, can tolerate various light conditions, and is almost impossible to kill.

Prayer plants add instant decor to a window sill, shelf, or nightstand — their gorgeous leaves have colorful patterns and they’re slow-growing plants so you don’t have to worry about them overgrowing their space anytime soon. They’re fairly easy-going when it comes to water (keep the soil moist) and light (indirect sunlight). At night, the leaves fold up like praying hands (thus the name), a great reminder for you to start winding down as well.
