They may be called “houseplants,” but there are plants can thrive in an apartment also. Plants add excitement to your rooms, improve air quality, boost your disposition, and help you feel closer to nature when you can’t travel outside to experience your beautiful community. The most popular plants for apartments in Indianapolis don’t require a lot of care. If you need a few topiaries or succulents in your space, these no-fuss houseplants are a wonderful present for your apartment.

The Best Plants For Apartments In Indianapolis With Artificial Light

Your apartment floor plan was designed for human beings but notalways vegetation. If your room doesn’t give you lots of sun, you can still enjoy greenery that grow in low light conditions. Spider plants are nice, low-maintenance plants that don’t require a lot of sunlight. These plants have skinny flat leaves and reproduce by sending out “spiderettes,” or tiny replicants of themselves that trail from the host plant. They look great on top shelves that give the leaves room to hang down. Spider plants are pretty forgiving and only require care when the soil gets dry. They also like small pots, so you don’t have to re-pot them very often.

The peace lily is also one of the top plants for apartments in Indianapolis. These sweet plants have stylish dark green leaves and white flowers. They grow taller than they are wide and won’t need a lot of sunlight, so you can park one in any place that needs dressing up in your apartment. They also don’t need much water and will show you that it’s watering time when they lose leaves.

The Top Apartment Plants That Don’t Demand Constant Drinks Of Water

If you’re busy working, traveling, or experiencing your apartment community’s many amenities, you could overlook to take care of your houseplants. To avoid killing your houseplants, buy cacti and succulents. These desert plants only look for water once or twice a week in warmer months and less during winter. Put them in a desert potting mix and stick them in a sunlit area like a window sill.

Cacti and succulents are now trendy as decor accents. You can find them in numerous sizes, colors, and shapes. Place your cacti and succulents in colorful terracotta pots or floating terrariums, or combine several kinds in one large pot.

The Most Popular Plants For Purifying Your Inside Air

Invisible substances from outdoor pollution and household items can store up in the air in your home. You’ll feel better with living plants like pothos and snake plants. They absorb toxins from the air and give off cleaner oxygen back into your living space.

Pothos are plants with large leaves with long stems that like to creep over the corners of shelving or hanging pots. They thrive in any lighting with scheduled watering.

Snake plants have firm, pointed leaves that stand vertically. They differ with other plants if you are looking to cluster a few varieties together. Snake plants will withstand a bit of neglect and need little natural light or water, meaning that they are tough to hurt.
