Plants have so many benefits.
Being around nature is said to be great for our well-being as humans, and seeing green vegetation stimulates our brains in unique ways. Plants purify the air, and bring life and vibrancy to an apartment home. However, it can be very hard for some of us to keep these plants alive, so we wanted to share some that should be (fairly) easy to take care of. In fact, these 7 plants should be some of the easiest!
Pothos – Epipremnum Aureum
This leafy plant can add gorgeous accents to bookshelves, or any elevated place in your apartment. They will climb, or do well hanging in a basket. They also help strip toxins from the air such as those from cleaners. More light is better, but they should be able to survive in almost any indirect light.
Snake Plant – Sansevieria Trifasciata
These snake-like leaves should be able to tolerate almost anything compared to other plants. Weeks without water shouldn’t harm them much and are an easy starter plant for those who have never owned one before. Low light and water are okay, but try not to abuse them too much! They purify the air, as well.
ZZ Plant – Zamioculcas Zamiifolia
These fun, little tree-like plants are from Zanzibar, and some call them the houseplant of the future. This plant can take the lowest amount of light of any on our list, and only has to be watered several times a month.
Cacti – Cactaceae
There are so many varieties of cacti that it can be hard to choose, but this makes for an awesome little desert garden inside your home. Their wild and crazy shapes can add a ton of character to any apartment home. Try them in windows, as cacti are used to getting desert light.
Suckies! These cute little plants have blown up in the plant world, and come in all shapes of pots and min gardens. They are extremely hard to kill, and should be able to thrive in any sort of apartment home. A little bit of water each month and minimal light should keep these plants strong.
Spider Plant – Chlorophytum Comosum
Low light and indirect light are perfect for these spindly plants. They send out their own shoots, so you could have an abundance of these coming off of one plant. They like crowded roots, so keep them packed tight in a bundle or alone.
Peace Lily – Spathiphyllum Wallisii
Bring some peace to your apartment home with this dark-leaf flowering plant. It is great for small spaces and requires very little sun. Their nickname is the closet plant if that tells you anything. It’s easy to tell when it needs water, as the leaves begin to drop.
