Indoor Plants for Families

You can never be surrounded by too much nature, so why not bring some green into your home with a few indoor plants? Plants don’t need to be high maintenance and the kids will have a great time choosing, then potting them up. Watering and caring for plants can also be a satisfying chore to give the kids as they can really see the results of their efforts.

Top 10 Low-Maintenance Indoor Plants

Even families without green thumbs will have no trouble keeping these plants thriving indoors. An added benefit is that indoor plants can filter the air and some even produce oxygen 24 hours a day, which can aid better sleep at night! 

! NOTE: Where mentioned, some of these plants may be toxic if ingested. Care should be taken if these plants are kept in reach of small children or pets who might try to have a taste.
