The living room is often the center of the home, where people gather to relax and socialize. It's a great space to showcase your personal style, and it should be comfortable and inviting. If you're looking for low-maintenance plants to add to your living room, consider some of these options:
The ZZ plant stems grow in an elegant, wand-like shape that starts thick and bulbous at the base and then tapers to a point. Along the stem are plump, oval-shaped leaves. The whole plant has a glossy, waxy coating that makes it look artificial from a distance. ZZ plants are easy to grow and make excellent houseplants for beginners. They're known for being tough and drought-tolerant, and they can tolerate a wide range of growing conditions.
Known for the visual impact it gives to any indoor space, the Ficus Lyrata, also known as Fiddle-leaf Fig is undoubtedly a stunner and a top choice for anyone looking for a focal point at home or in the office. Its broad and iconic, violin-shaped leaves and striking veins earned this plant its name.
This plant is not just a pretty face, it's also one of the most popular houseplants because it doesn't require too much maintenance. It can be placed in any room and will do well in either low or bright light. The Ficus Lyrata is also known to be tolerant of drafts, making it a perfect plant for homes with less than ideal conditions.

The Philodendron Brasil is a trailing plant that is perfect for anyone looking for something to add some color and life to their space. It's easy to care for and can tolerate both high and low light conditions. Maintain the glossy leaves of a Philodendron Brasil by using a clean cloth to wipe off the top and reveal a healthy shine. This will also help the plant absorb more light and continue its variegation. If you want more information about this plant before you buy, check out the Philodendron section of our Plant Glossary.
Pothos is a classic houseplant that is perfect for anyone looking for an easy-to-care-for plant. It thrives in both high and low light conditions and is known for being very tolerant of neglect. Its attractive leaves have splotches of greens and creams, a beautiful contrast to make any space look livelier. The Pothos NJoy foliage has an impressive vining habit and will naturally crawl up a wall, a stick or elegantly tumble down from its pot as it grows.
