One of the most common houseplants to have is a succulent. These desert plants are incredibly easy to care for.

In North Dakota, keeping plants alive in the freezing cold can become quite a challenge for gardeners in the area. There comes the task of making sure the plants receive plenty of sunshine despite the piles of snow and equally keep enough warmth. However, despite this, there are many different plants that still thrive in North Dakota even with the rough terrain. 


Aloe is by far one of the easiest plants to keep alive in North Dakota. These spiky plants don’t require much despite a normal room temperature, lots of sunshine, and they don’t need to be watered often due to their desert nature. Overall it is a simple plant that does not require a lot of attention.



An Anthurium plant is typically incredibly vibrant in color, ranging from pink to white and adds the right amount of color into any room. Similar to Aloe, these plants do not require much attention, despite that their soil does need to be moist. However, unlike it’s spiky friend, an Anthurium does not need constant sunshine, rather just bright lighting.


Snake Plant:


Snake Plants range between all shapes and sizes. Some can be as little as six inches while others can range to 48 inches. These plants resemble the same color tones as a snake and are very easy going due to the fact that they do not need to be watered constantly and lighting is not the biggest issue for them.


Christmas Cactus:

A Christmas Cactus is by far one of the most beautiful house plants that can be kept, with their charming red flowers. While these plants do require a warmer room temperature ranging from 70 to 80 degrees, they are the easiest cactuses to take care of. They do not need to be watered frequently and require bright lighting. 


Arrowhead Vine 

An Arrowhead Vine is definitely one of the more relaxed types of plants that can be kept in the house. Their dark green leaves shape perfectly like an arrowhead, which is precisely how they got their name. The lighting for these plants does not matter due to the fact that it can range from low to bright, however their soil does need to be wet.
