4 Houseplants I’ve Managed To Keep Alive

It’s taken me years of dead plants to find the ones I’ve been able to keep alive. Sometimes it’s just that – trial and error. I’m one of those plant moms that do best with low maintenance plants, both in light and water requirements. Here are four I’ve managed to keep alive for at least a year, some even longer.

Rubber Plant

This is a plant that does great with bright light and morning sun. Both of my rubber plants are sitting at the window that gets plenty of sunlight. This plant tends to dry out quickly so appreciates regular watering.

Snake Plant

The snake plant is probably the easiest plant I’ve ever had. It can stand quite a bit of neglect and doesn’t require tons of sunlight. It’s also drought resistant which is great for forgetful plant owners!


Jade plants are pretty low maintenance and prefer indirect sunlight. Allow the soil to dry out in between waterings – about every 10 days or so.


There are several different kinds of philodendrons, and so far I’ve managed to keep them all alive! They’re also pretty resilient plants who prefer bright light, but indirect. So a spot near a window without sun rays directly on them will be perfect.




  • These two bring me so much joy. I was thinking about how much Molly would have loved this hike. Miss my old girl.
  • “True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.

True belonging is the spiritual practice of believing in and belonging to yourself so deeply that you can share your most authentic self with the world and find sacredness in both being a part of something and standing alone in the wilderness.” @brenebrown

  • This year I signed on as a marketing columnist for my local newspaper The Mountain Ear!

My first column came out last week and talks about the beginning steps toward setting up a social media marketing plan for your small business. As a digital-driven millennial, it's fun to see my words in print. 😊
  • Decisions are not isolated events. They point us in the direction we're headed. While I feel like I've made a lot of progress this past year, there are things in my past that are holding me up. I'm making a commitment to let go of that hurt instead of trying to make it better. Saying goodbye was always the right decision. I just wish I'd realized that sooner.
