Succulents are natural water retainers and they need watering as little as once a month. Commonly used varieties like the zebra-striped Haworthia can grow in a range of light conditions and almost requires no watering. However, succulents grow naturally in harsh light and temperature so it is best not to expect a longer life while placing it indoors.
Ficus is a lovely indoor house plant that is considerably less fussy than the other varieties. This plant has dense, silver leaves that often grows in a single-stemmed trunk with big bushy leaves resembling a lollipop. This indoor plant is classic on its own due to its pruned look, which goes well with traditional decors and spaces.
