Whether you need plants that don't require much water or you need plants that thrive with little sun, we have ideas. You'll keep these alive -- we promise.


Bamboo stalks are the ultimate in easy-to-care-for houseplants. Keep their water container full and you'll almost always keep the bamboo alive! Bamboo has history, too. In the Far East, bamboo is a symbol of good fortune, and in India, bamboo is symbolic of long-lasting friendship.Philodendrum e this info from Lucky Bamboo Shop:

  • Three stalks: Happiness
  • Five stalks: Health

Spider plant


Philodendron are climbing plants that make excellent houseplants. They do best when with an indoor temperature between 60 and 72 degrees. If your home or the room you want to place the philodendron in doesn't receive much sunlight, that's OK --these houseplants do well in low light. Size varies between varieties, but almost all have pretty green leaves.

Spider plant

The spider plant is an extremely easy-to-grow trailing plant that makes the perfect houseplant. The good news for aspiring green thumbs who aren't quite there yet is that the spider plant is difficult to kill. The even better news is that with the right care, your spider plant will flourish. While the spider plant does best in direct sunlight, it will also grow in partial sunlight or even shade. The spider likes its water, so don't forget to give your spider plant a regular drink.

Not for you. The only one I see that is better for them is the sunlight and air, but since cats are domesticated to thrive in an indoor environment, they don't need direct sunlight to stay healthy. And the air inside your home is usually better than outside anyways.
I would agree with the plants part, except you ruined it by showing that you're mostly concerned about your houseplants. You can purchase plants for your cats and be sure that they aren't eating something bad for them outside.
