Interior plants provide numerous benefits while living in your residence. From purifying air to creating a warm and inviting setting, houseplants can really take your interior space to the next level. We understand that many struggle to obtain that “green thumb” with regards to maintenance and upkeep, so we created a short list of sturdy plants which are easy to care for making them perfect for apartment dwellers.
Swiss Cheese Plant – Monstera Deliciosa
Boasting iconic split leaves, this popular houseplant is easy to grow and can get very large and live for many years, while looking great the entire time. Minimum maintenance such as misting and cleaning of leaves will make your plant healthy and vibrant. Note: This plant is toxic for cats and dogs. Care Guidelines.
Pothos – Epipremnum Aureum
These leafy green plants are perfect for hanging baskets or as a climbing plant. A great plant for beginners as it is fairly simple to grow and will thrive in a range of conditions. It is also a hardy plant that can handle a bit of neglect. You can plant this plant in soil (traditional method), but it will thrive simply in a vase full of water. Care Guidelines.
Snake Plant – Sansevieria Trifasciata
Snake plants are a great apartment plant, that withstand weeks of neglect without losing their shape and fresh look and can thrive in environments with very low light and water. They also help purify the air by removing toxins. Care guidelines.
Spider Plant – Chlorophytum Comosum
Spider plants are easy to grow and fairly straightforward to maintain, making them an apartment dwelling favorite. A rapid grower and propagator, the spider plant is a wonderful addition to any residence. Care Guidelines.
Cacti – Cactaceae
Variety is the spice of life and cacti don’t disappoint as they are available in amazing colors and wonderful shapes and sizes. These plants can survive in the desert, so plant your cacti near a window and watch it thrive. Care Guidelines.
