Any of the “Angel” plants you can get at Lowes are very hearty and virtually unkillable.


Just double check that their safe for your pets if you have any.

@Rouquine: Dieffenbachia.  it is LITERALLY impossible to kill this plant.  My dad has had this plant since 1969, and he continually makes cuttings off it to give to people, including me.  I have one in my office and 1 at my house:

They can get MUCH bigger than this pic, but they are really nice!  Good luck!

I have a ficus tree I’ve had since I was a sophmore in college (35 now) and a philodendron.  Both do great indoors

A couple years ago my husband bought me a rubber plant. I still haven’t and literally cannot kill it. Its survived all of our hectic moves and has been horribly neglected from time to time, like goes weeks between waterings. That and I’ve been meaning to repot it since the day I got it.

I have a cactus and violet plants (I think that’s what they are called). I usually kill my plants but I can manage to keep these ones alive hehe

I also have a rubber tree plant and a palm tree(that was from my grandfathers funeral over 10 yrs ago)  I used to have spider plants but hate them now with a passion.

As someone who only has a green thumb for my outdoor plants, and whose cats manage to destroy almost every other plant,  I second the bamboo. We also have a wadnering jew. This thing can’t be killed. 3 summers in a row birds (mourning doves and robins) have made nests in this plant when I hang it outside for the summmer. Its under our covered porch so it gets no water…unless you count liquid bird poop. Once the last of the babies fly away the plant looks dead. Seriously dead. Covered in poo, and weeds (from the seeds in the poop) start to grow in it. I cut it back, bring it in the house, constantly forget to water it and don’t provide it with enough light. And yet it grows. Here is a pic with some babies Smile
