If you’re just *not* someone with a green thumb, we just found your new go-to plant (though don’t worry, cacti, we’re still so into you!) and it’s actually super beautiful. Pothos plants just hopped on our radar, and according to Apartment Therapy, they’re so ridiculously easy to care for we shouldn’t even have to give you instructions! But, don’t worry. We’re not gonna leave you hanging.

So WTF is a pothos plant?

Pothos plants are pretty simple, vining houseplants that require minimal care. They’re super gorgeous, way easy to care for, and they help freshen up your air, because that’s the major bonus of hanging out with plants. One thing to be aware of is that they are poisonous, so don’t eat ’em! Or let your furry friends eat them either, as it can cause a rash or vomiting. Meow. But other than that, they’re perfect basically!

While not over-watering our plants is so hard (we need so much water, how do they survive with so little?!), your plant is not a human, and is actually happier when you only water it when its soil is dry. So don’t freak out if it’s not drinking six cups a day! It’ll be okay, we promise. Unless you drown it, and it’ll probably be a little sad.

While the lack of windows in your apartment may totally torture your sun-loving soul, your pothos plants actually don’t require direct sunlight. As a result, they’ll be happy in a variety of spaces, so feel free to experiment, or also just load up on these little guys. What’s cuter than an apartment totally loaded with plants?!

Yeah, as if this plant could get ANY easier to take care of, you don’t even have to run outside (or hit up the store) for potting soil. This means they can grow in super cool containers, so play around! You can just put it in a container of water, and just like that, you’re a proud plant parent.
