Did you know that having house plants has been proven to:

  1. improve someone's mood
  2. lower stress/anxiety
  3. improving office performance and focus
  4. improving the overall air quality of a space

Plus, they are such a beautiful addition to a space. Plants breathe life into any room, adding that pop of green we've all been needing. Houseplants are guaranteed to fill up your home with a little more love.

However, some of us still struggle with keeping a single succulent alive. With all the benefits that come with becoming a plant parent, it's a great personal goal to work towards in 2022. Thankfully, there are some plants that have a "beginner" care level, and here's some of our favorite house plants that aren't super high maintenance:
