Black thumb remedies: Hard to kill houseplants and pretty pots to put them in | home sweet home lifestyle galleries feature  pictures

My housemate had quite the large collection of indoor plants creating a nice little jungle in our back room, but unfortunately when he went away I was forced to take care of them, and let's just say I did a less than stellar job. My black thumb seems to strike at the mere mention of me looking after a plant — it's like they droop on the spot! To make it up to him I've been hunting for some hard to kill houseplants that even a novice like me could look after.

Whether you're forgetful when it comes to watering them (that's my main problem!) or just have a terrible track record when it comes to green scenery, then you'll be wanting to find sturdy houseplants that are hard to kill. Just make sure you pick the right plant for your light conditions and you're pretty much good to go.

Gorgeous pots to put them in aren't a necessity. Wait, actually yes they are. Pretty things are always necessary.
