Especially if you live in the city, you can quickly start to miss the beauty of the plants, flowers, and trees when you are living in an apartment. The bright side is that you can easily incorporate a few plants into your space. Whether you have a tiny or spacious apartment, there are plenty of ways to incorporate plants into your décor. Not only do plants an add extra touch to any room, but they also help to purify the air. The reality is that we spend a lot of time at home, and we are surrounded by so many chemicals from paint, furniture, building materials, and more.
To help you choose greenery that will thrive, here are a few of the best plant options for apartment living.
If you are limited on the amount of space you have to work with, succulents are the perfect choice for a small apartment. These little plants are fancy, beautiful, and flexible. In fact, they can live pretty much anywhere you want to put them. A succulent can be the perfect pop in your bathroom, on your kitchen counter, or on your living room coffee table. Plus, you can put them in nearly any type of container you could possibly think of – a decorative pot, glass terrarium, and wooden box are just a few options.
Aloe Vera Plants
The idea of having aloe vera plants in your apartment may seem a little intimidating and arbitrary at first, but this type of plant can really thrive in an apartment setting. If you have a sunny spot in your apartment, you can keep an aloe vera plant alive. Just be sure to put it in a pot that will enable it to drain sufficiently. Not only is this type of plant pretty to look at, but it can also be quite useful. You can use the aloe to treat burns or skin irritations at any time.
There is something so romantic about having English ivy in an apartment. You can let the vines simply drape off a shelf, or you can even train them to grow up a topiary for an even more decorative aesthetic. Plus, they are easy to care for, so you don’t have to put a lot of pressure on yourself to keep it alive.
