Why it's cool: The Hoya plant comes in a variety of attractive shapes and sizes and is exceptionally low-maintenance. Best of all, it produces clusters of gorgeous, delicate, waxy pink flowers.
How to care for it: Hoya plants like bright light, but not direct sun. Let the soil dry between waterings, and don't be afraid to prune, as hoyas grow fast and will wrap themselves around nearby objects unless controlled. Buy It Now
Why it's cool: The Venus flytrap is not only awesome-looking, it's also a star of stage and screen! Immortalized in the Little Shop of Horrors, this carnivorous plant eats bugs and spiders. Yummy, huh?
How to care for it: This plant is not for the faint of heart. Basically, feed it insects that it will find in the wild. Feel free to squash the bugs before putting them in the traps so they don't get away. Don't feed them any processed meat, or anything that wouldn't normally fall into the trap in the wild. Buy It Now
