Easy fast growers, low maintenance, bug-proof, table-size or floor, flowering?
Pothos is one I have I can't kill and can root new plants from.

I have a jade plant/rubber tree of some kind, and it's been wonderful. A little water, a little sunlight, and it will GROW LIKE CRAZY. I also like Spider plants -- beautiful flowers! And it's nigh on impossible to overwater them.

My former Jades always got bugs, plus I prefer bigger leaves.
How long does the spider flower- seasonally?

Maybe Christmas cactus? Or others in the euphorbia family. I have a "cowhorn" euphorbia (grandicornis) that is super low maintenance, grows from cuttings, but has giant thorns with tiny tiny flowers. There are tons of different euphorbias, though, some are leafy with flowers.

Monstera deliciosa are vigorous and easy, if you like a tropical look.

All the time during warmer, sunnier months. It's fairly constant. You can just cut the 'babies' off after the initial flowering.

I recently bought some succulents (not cacti). They have low light requirements and I only water once a week or so... they're growing like crazy! You can combine different types/sizes in one container if you want.

I love maidenhair ferns, but kill them within weeks. Any hints on keeping them alive?
