Today, January 10th, is Houseplant Appreciation Day. It’s the perfect day to add some greenery to your space and bring home a new houseplant. If you need more persuading, there are countless benefits to having houseplants. They absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, improving air quality and regulating humidity levels. They also make your home look nice, which can lead to better productivity and more overall happiness.

Now, we know what you might be thinking: You’ve tried to keep plants before, but you always accidentally kill them. Well, today is the perfect day to try again. The houseplants on this list are low-maintenance and great for beginners. With a little bit of research, once you know how much light and water your houseplants need, you’ll be a proud plant mom in no time.

Exercise your green thumb and bring home these adorable plants on Houseplant Appreciation Day.
