Houseplant Homebody

Welcome all plant lovers, plant experts, plant enthusiasts and beginners! I am your host, Holly, the creator of Houseplant Homebody! I am so pumped to share my adventures with all things plants! I am not an expert by any means but join me in my ongoing journey of slowly becoming an expert! I have been passionate about all things plants for YEARS. With everything that I have explored on social media or plant websites I realized there seems to be ONE THING MISSING… a US Midwestern perspective in the amazing world of social media outlets, podcasts and blogs. I am a proud Wisconsinite and we have a different and somewhat complicated environment for growing houseplants & plants! BUT just because we have a different environment doesn’t mean we can’t learn from the experts on the East and West coasts! Want to join my adventure? Subscribe to this podcast, follow @houseplanthomebodyllc Houseplant Homebody on Instagram and Facebook and go follow my personal plant inspirations on Pinterest! And DON’T FORGET to get involved! Comment on posts or pictures, ask me questions, provide your best plant advice or tag @houseplanthomebodyllc in your posts or comments. There is so much to learn in the plant world and I want to encourage everyone to soak it up! Houseplant Homebody is the best community for ALL THINGS PLANTS.

I was so happy to do a podcast about these low maintenance plants with my twin sister, Lindsay! She was the perfect person to do it with because she doesn't have a lot of experience with houseplants, giving podcast a couple different perspectives! The subject of low maintenance houseplants has always been a hot topic of conversation between beginners and expert houseplant lovers alike! There are definitely more than 10 houseplants that are fairly easy and many sources say different things (none of them are wrong!). In this podcast, I have given you a look into my top 10 low maintenance houseplants based on my experiences with each of them and a different perspective from a beginner, my twin sister, Lindsay's experiences. My top 10 low maintenance houseplants are Snake Plant, ZZ Plant, Philodendron, Agave, Hoya, Pothos, Peperomia, Dieffenbachia, Syngonium and Monstera.

Peperomia has many varieties all with different textures, colors, shapes and sizes. This happens to be a great starter plant and a great plant for any experienced houseplant lover!
