Can’t keep a plant alive to save your life? Trust us, you aren’t alone! Sometimes it feels like no matter what steps you take or how much you water a plant, it just won’t stay alive. Ugh! So, we went on a mission to get our answers and discover which plants are right for us “beginners.” We went way back to The LA Girl’s Previous Editor-in-Chief, Gwen Lane, to get all of our plant questions answered. Remember her?! A one-time LA Girl blogger, now helping creators monetize and last but not least, a total plant Connoisseur. She’s a gal who can truly do it all, and thus why we trust her to help us keep our plants alive. Follow along to discover which house plants you can keep alive even if you don’t have a green thumb. (But first, maybe go buy some cute pots and growing essentials!)
