9 Houseplants That Can Survive With Just A Little Bit Of Water

Perhaps the plants we keep at home are not as sensitive as our pets, but they also need attention and care. We must admit that despite the minimum requirements, we sometimes forget that we need pour some water, so they often wither and die.

There are plants that you can keep at home and are slightly more resistant to your forgetfulness for watering. However, keep in mind that although these plants are “more tolerant” to your forgetfulness, it does not mean that they can survive without water.

1. Aloe

This plant should be irrigated moderately and very carefully, in the summer months once a week, and through winter only once a month.

2. Zamioculcas

Another plant that needs watering only once a week, because too much water will cause withering of leaves and rotting of the roots. So if you notice that the soil is moist and a week has passed by, wait a day or two and then add water. In fall and winter water it 1-2 times a month.

3. Spurge

In the spring and summer, water when you notice that the soil is almost dry, and when it cools down, reduce the time between watering, that is, put water only when you notice that the soil has completely dried.

4. Epipremnum

During the spring and summer water it every 4-5 days with water at room temperature, while in the winter reduce the frequency to once a week.

5. Beaucarnea recurvata

This is one of the plants that really will not criticize the forgetfulness. You should water it every 20-30 days because excess water can lead to rotting of the plant.

6. Kalanchoe

This flower accumulates moisture in the leaves, which gives it more durability. Water it every 5-6 days, but if you notice that the soil is still moist wait another 1-2 days.

7. Podocarpus

This evergreen plant is one of those few in need of water. In the summer there is a need for moderate watering every 5 days, and in  the winter it should be reduced even more.

8. Sansevieria trifasciata

This little plant also accumulates and stores water in the leaves, so be careful not to overdo it with the watering. When you notice that the soil is completely dry, it is a sign that it needs water.

9. Crassula

If summer temperatures are very high, water it twice a week, otherwise it is enough only once a week. What you need to look out for is that the soil is neither very moist or very dry. In the winter, watering should be reduced to once every 2 weeks.
