Plants help turn any living space into a real home. They look nice in pretty much any room of the house. Plus, indoor plants can help purify the air in your house, create oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide.
But some gamers, like us, struggle with keeping indoor plants alive. Are you an infamous plant killer, in dire need of easy tips and tricks to keep your green housemates alive? Then you are in luck! We have done all the research. So sit back and take a look at all the ‘Gamer Friendly House Plants’ we found.
Low effort plants for the win
You could turn any gaming room or gamer pad into a pleasent homey enviroment. The question is: What are you willing to do for it? I, myself, absolutely suck at creating new routines. And watering a plant is the absolute last thing on my mind after a long day of whatever the heck I was doing that day. But that shouldn’t be a reason to not have any plants at all. Some plants are more ‘low effort’ than others. So for our lovely, but somewhat busy gamers out there: here are a few plants that require zero to almost no care to survive. The Chinese Evergreen, the ZZ plant or the Hoya plant. These plants are very resilient plants that do not need constant care and light. Needless to say, perfect for beginners!
Light is not always essential
Let us ask you this: Do you watch a lot of movies? And play a lot of games? Do you need your curtains drawn at all times? Or do you just simply not have a lot of windows near Houston in your house? You might be interested to know that not all plants require a lot of day light. I’ll say it louder for the people in the back: Light is not always essential, making these plants the most gamer friendly house plants that ever planted on this semi green earth! These plants can thrive in a dark gaming room: Lucky Bamboo plant, Spider plant, Snake plant. These plants do not need much lights, open curtains and large windows. In the wild, they can thrive even in shade.
As dry as your sense of humor
It’s good to keep in mind that gaming rooms tend to be very dry. The monitors can get really warm and the fan needs to keep fanning to keep your appliances at optimal performance. This could mean that you have to water your plants more, because the moisture evaporates faster. And doing more of something is simply something I cannot get involved in. So for my fellow lazy pandas: These are plants that do not depend on much water. Yes, you heard it right. Some plants actually prefer dry air and almost no water. Succulents, air plants and Ponytail palm do not need water because they filter it out of the air or store it in their leaves. This makes it hard to kill them.
