Spider plants are notorious for all the right reasons – they're adaptable, easy to grow and totally un-fussy. If gardening isn't usually your thing, you'd have to try very hard to mess this one up, as spider plants are incredibly tolerant. They enjoy cooler temperatures and a medium amount of watering, without letting the soil get soggy.

Being native to Australia's east coast, this nest-shaped fern loves moisture. Water deeply once or twice a week depending on the weather. You can also propagate your fern by cutting through the centre of the crown with a saw, this is best done in autumn.

You're probably familiar with this fleshy, plump evergreen succulent. Like all succulent varieties, the echeveria enjoys full sunlight. In terms of watering, it's best to let its soil completely dry before completely wetting it thoroughly. Make sure it has really good drainage!
