The winter months can be a dreary time outdoors, but that doesn’t have to be the case inside your home.

Adding a few houseplants to your home can enhance your decor and provide a host of benefits to your family.

Growing plants inside your home can improve the indoor air quality and increase the humidity during the dry winter months. And you don’t have to have a green thumb to have beautiful houseplants.

These six low-maintenance houseplants are the perfect way to brighten your home this winter.

Pothos

This leafy green houseplant is great for air purification because it helps strip toxins from materials inside your home. And it’s easy to care for, too! Just trim back the Pothos’ stems when they start getting too long, make sure it gets adequate sunlight, and allow the plant’s soil to dry between watering.

I have 4 of these plants! I just got myself a Marble Queen pothos recently – it’s only a little baby right now but I can’t wait until spring when it starts putting out lots of growth (hopefully).

I love houseplants, they certainly do make a house a home. Although most of mine don't last too long. Black thumbs. But I'm sure you have much more luck the I. Spring will come soon enough and your baby Marble Queen Pothos will grow! Great choice!
