Your apartment floor plan was created for people but notalways house plants. If your apartment doesn’t bring in lots of direct sunlight, you can bring in greenery that grow in dimly lit rooms. Spider plants are nice, hardy plants that don’t demand a lot of sunlight. These plants feature long spiky leaves that propagate by spintering out “spiderettes,” or tiny versions of themselves that dangle off of the host plant. They look perfect on higher shelving that allow the tendrils room to hang down. Spider plants are awfully hardy and only require watering when the leaves dry out. They also like a little crowding, so you won’t have to prune them almost ever.

One of the best plants for apartments in Bloomington is the peace lily. These sweet flowers have elegant dark green leaves and classic white flowers. They are tall rather than wide and don’t require an abundance of light, so you can fit one in any corner of your small apartment. They also don’t need much watering and will tell forgetful caretakers that they’re thirsty when they lose leaves.

If you’re busy working, studying, or experiencing your apartment’s excellent amenities, it’s easy to forget to water your houseplants. To avoid killing your houseplants, get succulents and cacti. These arid plants only want water once a week in summer seasons and less frequently during colder months. Place them in a cactus and succulent potting mix and stick them in a bright space like a kitchen window.

Cacti and succulents are very trendy as room knick knacks. You can order them in many difference sizes, colors, and shapes. Display your cacti and succulents in decorative pots or floating terrariums, or mix and match several kinds in a large pot.

Microscopic toxins from general air and inside sprays can live in the environment in your home. You’ll feel better with living plants like pothos and snake plants. They absorb toxins from the air and give off pure air back into your living space.

Pothos are leafy with long stalks that want to creep over the corners of shelving or baskets. They excel in almost all lighting with a daily watering.

Snake plants have firm, pointed leaves that grow vertically. They contrast with some other popular vegetation if you plan to cluster a few varieties together. Snake plants should resist a bit of abandonment and demands little light or water, making them difficult to kill.
