10 Awesome Houseplants That Can Survive With Little Or No Water

Too busy or just too forgetful to water your plants everyday? Here are 10 recommendations for you!

I guess everyone would agree with me when I say plants add beauty to our surroundings. There’s something about them that relaxes the eyes and mind whenever we see them. So yes, plants are highly recommended for all of us who just wants to feel a little closer to nature.

It is, however, a fact that most plants require some level of work to maintain. Now this is where things can get a little difficult, especially for busy individuals who may, at times, fail to water their plants everyday which may eventually lead to wilting.

Well fortunately, there are many domestic plants out there that can survive with little or no water at all.

If you are the forgetful type, you might want to get one or several of these plants instead:
