5. Pick a Plant
For low-maintenance plants that don’t need much attention, choose an air plant. Also known as tillandsia, these get their nutrients from the air and don’t require soil to grow. Watering is easy. Experts recommend soaking your plant in room temperature water every 10 to 14 days, gently shaking off the excess water, and leaving it to air dry. You can also shop for cactus and succulents, or accessories to care for your air plants.
