The Golden Pothos loves bright, indirect light but is famous for being able to thrive even in low light settings.
Pothos need to dry out in between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot which will quickly kill your planty friend. Grab a moisture meter to help you learn when to water each of your houseplants.
If this is going to be your first houseplant we recommend starting with the Golden Pothos. As long as you don’t overwater it’s pretty much impossible to kill!

Grows well in low light to bright, indirect light. Increase the light to see bigger leaves with more fenestrations.
Water a Monstera Deliciosa plant when the top two inches of the soil feels dry.
This plant is a natural climber so once it starts to get big add a moss pole to give it some support.

Fiddle Leaf Fig
Lots of bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight will quickly scorch its leaves.
Water when the top 1-2 inches of the soil feels dry. Fiddle Leaf Figs love consistency. Once you figure out how many days your plant likes to go between watering stick to that schedule rigorously and you’ll see how happy your fiddle can be!
While the Fiddle Leaf Fig has a reputation for being a diva at times after a little learning curve it can be easy to have a thriving fiddle. Grab yourself a humidifier to keep this planty looking nice and lush and soon you’ll be posting Pinterest-worthy pictures of the iconic Fiddle Leaf Fig.

Bright, indirect light.
Pilea Peperomiodies like to dry out just slightly before being watered again. If the top inch or two of the soil feels dry it’s time for a drink.
