You’ve accidentally annihilated yet another houseplant. Welcome to the club! We meet on Tuesdays. Real talk, though: If you’re having trouble keeping your drama queen monstera or persnickety banana plant alive, don’t let it get you down.

We’ve compiled a list of nearly indestructible house plants that are ideal for folks whose green thumbs never fully bloomed, plus a few tips and tricks to help your plant babies thrive.
