Aloe vera is a useful plant to have in the house for its anti-inflammatory healing properties that alleviate burns and wounds on the skin. This succulent is also easy to take care of. Water every two to four weeks and keep it in either direct or indirect light.
This versatile vine plant (perfect as a hanging plant, too), known for its heart-shaped leaf, can do well in either bright, indirect light or low light. It can even tolerate fluorescent lighting. Use a pot with holes so the potting soil is completely drained and dry between waterings.
This green and yellow plant, also called the sansevieria trifasciata, is another crowdpleaser -- it looks chic and helps reduce allergens. Place the snake plant in indirect sunlight. Watering should happen when soil is dry.
