Hardy indoor plants – Sansevieria

Among the resistant houseplants there is the Sansevieria, which is often found in apartments and terraces as an ornamental plant. Sansevieria is a genus of the Agavaceae family, native to the Indies and tropical Africa, which includes about 50 species. It is an evergreen plant with long, narrow fleshy leaves, dark green in color and with white streaks. This plant needs diffused lighting and a warm and constant temperature, typical of apartments. It produces small flowers which, however, bloom very rarely in the apartment. Sansevieria is a very slow growing plant and, if properly cared for, lasts many years: it does not need frequent watering and it is important to avoid excess water that could cause stagnation.

Beaucarnea recurvata

Beaucarnea recurvata (called smoke-eating plant) is a decorative caudiciform plant of Mexican origin. Its nickname is due to the statement that this plant absorbs harmful gases, making the air healthier. Being a succulent plant or, as they often say, a succulent plant, it can endure water shortages for long periods. It is suitable for both exteriors and interiors of an apartment, placing it in an illuminated environment, but not directly in the sunlight. It is characterized by a globular stem in the lower part, dominated at the top by a thick tuft of thin leaves: it thus assumes a bottle shape, rounded at the base and narrower at the top. In nature it can reach 10 meters in height, in the apartment it can go up to 2 meters.

Aloe vera

The species of the genus Aloe are perhaps the most famous succulent plants of southern Africa. There are over 550 species. In particular, the Aloe vera plant can be easily looked after in one’s own apartment and must be protected from frost and cold currents. It is a hardy plant, which loves bright and dry places: direct sunlight benefits its prosperity. It can reach a height of one meter, has no stem and has simple leaves, with small teeth on the sides, arranged in a tuft. In addition to its ornamental value, aloe vera is also exploited by the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries for its beneficial properties. The Aloe plant does not require pruning and must be watered in moderation, therefore it has a limited need in terms of irrigation.


Dieffenbachia are a genus with about 30 species of evergreen perennial herbaceous plants. It is native to the tropical countries of Asia and Central America. This plant has a short sturdy stem and very large, oblong variegated leaves spotted in white, ivory or light green. It is among the most common indoor plants, as well as for its particular beauty, for its resistance and ease of care. Dieffenbachia needs a constant temperature and watering must be rare but abundant. This plant loves bright light, but not direct exposure to the sun’s rays and, if cared for properly, grows vigorous (up to one meter in height) and survives for many years. Its vast and bright foliage contributes to the decorative value of the plant, which adapts to any type of apartment.
