When you think of an easy plant that does not need water, you quickly think of a cactus. The cactus is perhaps the easiest plant there is. He is not fussy about little or hardly any sunlight, and is not a thirsty drinker. A cactus can even cope with dried out soil. Watering only once a month is therefore fine for most cacti. Even if you forget it for a month, this is not a problem in most cases. As long as you don't drown a cactus in water, it's not the hardest!
Another easy green friend: the Aloe Vera. This plant collects water in its leaves. This allows the Aloe Vera to go without water for a long time. Once a month is therefore sufficient! Put him down in a sunny spot and he won't complain about anything. In addition, the Aloe Vera can enjoy a summer trip to the terrace. A real bon vivant!
Another easygoing guest, the Dragon's Blood Tree. Although his official name is difficult to pronounce, he is not the most difficult. The Dracaena is a popular and easy to maintain houseplant. It likes a light spot, but also tolerates shade well. It is also undemanding when it comes to water. In the winter he needs some water once every 3 to 4 weeks, and in the summer between 1 to 2 weeks. The amount depends on the temperature in the room, size and the amount of light it gets. In any case, never give the Dracaena too much water! Too much water will rot the roots.
And what about the pancake plant? This popular houseplant is also easy to care for. In addition, the Pilea even has a light air-purifying effect. If you prevent his soil from drying out, he may even have white flowers in the summer! It prefers continuously moist soil and a sunny place. Give him a small amount of water once a week, and he'll be happy!
