There is however a group of very tough plants, that manage to survive is spite of the dreadful care they are given. Different plants have different growing requirements for optimal growth and health, but many can do quite well with less than ideal growing conditions. These are the plants you can forget to water, leave in poor soil and starve them of light. They somehow mange to hang in there and bounce back once you come to your senses and show them a little TLC.

The following plants are in this group and are therefore great specimens for beginners, busy busy people, commercial settings and or lazy or forgetful gardeners.
