Having a garden in your property doesn’t only add beauty to the overall look of your house. It is also beneficial to you and your family’s health. Even First Lady Michelle Obama attests to this and even published her own book about gardening.

Assuming you’re a beginner who just realized a house’s need for a garden, you can choose from these 10 plants:

#1 - Santan

It's easy to find santan flowers in many houses in the country. These plants thrive in bright light, but you have to protect them from direct sunlight in the summer. Soil should always be moist.

#2 - Peanut Plant

We’re not talking about the edible peanut here, okay? This plant grows fast if you just place it in the sunlight. Do you think your garden looks sad? Peanut plants are good in making empty spaces look filled.

#3 - Rhapis

This plant is really low maintenance, you can grow it all year round. You may also put them in the areas not quite touched by direct sunlight. The area just has to be well-lit, while you also supply it with water moderately.

#4 - Ti Plant

Now let’s go to the Hawaiian tropical Ti Plant. You don’t need to water it too often. It even has to be left to dry in between watering. You’ll know when to shower it with some moisture love when the soil becomes dry.

#5 - Bird’s Nest Fern or Dapo

Got some shady areas that are evenly moist? Dapo is great for this type of environment. Just water the soil often and keep the area humid. Never let the Dapo’s soil get dry.

#6 - Bromeliad

You need a pot with a saucer of gravel for this. Partially fill it with water to increase humidity and maintain moisture. However, you shouldn’t let the roots be submerged in the water to avoid it from rotting.

#7 - Kalachuchi

Kalachuchi is considered to be among the most popular Adenium hybrids available in the market. This plant comes in a variety of different colors that are perfect if you want your house to look vibrant. You can choose to grow them indoor or outdoor.

#8 - San Francisco

What’s up with the name? This multicolored plant has been revealed to have the ability to kill a mosquito larva that carries Zika virus. You probably thought of your kids when you read that line.

#9 - Spanish Moss

Despite its name, Spanish Moss is actually a type of flowering plant, not an actual moss. They can grow successfully in a dry climate, providing you water it regularly so it stays moist.

#10 - Schefflera

Also known as Dwarf Umbrella Tree, Schefflera is a native plant in Taiwan. Caring for it is so easy and you may also include in your list of gift ideas to friends. Don’t put your dwarf umbrella tree in pots if you want it to bloom.
