Indoor Plants That Don't Need Drainage
Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
Spider plants are one of the best examples of a plant that doesn’t need drainage, as they easily adapt to growing in water. Also, because they originate from tropical areas of Africa where they were exposed to large amounts of water and indirect sunlight, potted spider plants can easily recover from water damage.
Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides)
Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema spp.)
Native to Asia, this hardy perennial tropical plant thrives in both water and wet soil, so it can grow in pots without drainage holes. It is recommended to change the water about every 3 days if growing it in water only, and if growing in soil to water once a week or when the soil becomes dry.
Lemon Button Fern (Nephrolepis cordifolia ‘Duffii’)
This plant likes humid areas, so they make perfect additions to terrariums for display and even reptile tanks where they offer live decor for your scaly friend. Do include rocks or pebbles at the bottom of the pot to keep the plant’s roots from standing in water and avoid overwatering.
