6 Houseplants That Are Low-Maintenance And Easy To Care For (PHOTOS)

There's now officially no excuse for black-thumb gardeners.

We have to admit, like many people we have a love/hate relationship with plants. They're great to have at home for a burst of color and life, but at the end of the day, having time to care for your greens isn't always feasible. And that's why they usually end up, well, dying. But you can totally avoid that guilty feeling when you have to toss them in the trash by choosing houseplants that are low-maintenance and easy to take care of. (Yes, they exist.)

Don't believe us? Just click through our slideshow to see six options that you can totally keep alive. And be sure to speak to your local plant store owner to make sure you have the right home settings for these.
