Houseplants That Love Neglect

Do you forget to water your houseplants?   These beauties are just for you.  

1.  Succulents come in many shapes and colors They have thick leaves which store water and they need watering only once a week.  Wait until the soil is dry before watering.  They do light plenty of dry air and sunlight.

3. Pothos  This plant thrives on low maintenance.  It tolerates low light conditions and requires little watering.
