Here is a list of plants that are perfect for those just starting out their indoor plant collection. These require little to no sunlight and won't die if you forget to water them a few times or the wrong way (looking at you, moth orchids, which are kept alive by giving them ice cubes).
Aloe Vera (Aloe vera)
This plant has incredible health benefits and is easy to care for.
Dumb Cane (Dieffenbachia sp.)
The name refers to the toxic sap produced.
Dragon Tree (Dracaena draco)

Remember, you can never have too many plants!
