Plants can sprinkle in excitement to your apartment decor, enhance air quality, change your feelings, and make you feel closer to nature when you can’t get outdoors to enjoy your scenic community.

If you want some living greenery around your living spaces, these low-maintenance plants are the perfect addition for your apartment.

The Top Plants For Apartments In Carmel With Low Light

Your apartment flow was designed for human inhabitants but notalways plants. If your room doesn’t have lots of sun, you can bring in things that flourish in dimly lit rooms. Spider plants are fun, hardy plants that don’t need a lot of sunlight. These plants have skinny spiky leaves and grow by spintering out “spiderettes,” or tiny versions of themselves that dangle down the primary plant. They look perfect on higher shelves that give them room to grow. Spider plants are very hardy and only require water when they are dry. They also like a crowded pot, so you shouldn’t have to re-pot them very often.

Don’t forget about the peace lily as a perfect plant for Carmel apartments. These lovely plants have fashionable forest green leaves and classic white flowers. They rise more in height than width and won’t need a lot of light, so you can park one in any corner in your small apartment. They also won’t need much watering and will tell forgetful caretakers that they need water by dropping leaves.

The Most Popular Apartment Plants That Won’t Require A Lot Of Water

If you’re busy working, studying, or experiencing your apartment community’s excellent amenities, it’s easy to overlook to water your houseplants. To avoid killing your vegetation, buy succulents and cacti. These desert-native plants only need to be watered once a week in warm seasons and less during the cold. Put them in a succulent and cactus soil mix and stick them in a sunny space like a kitchen window.

Cacti and succulents are now fashionable as decor accents. You can order them in numerous shapes, sizes, and colors. Show off your succulents and cacti in fun flower pots or hanging terrariums, or mix and match different kinds in a large pot.

Unseen substances from general dust and household items can accumulate in the air in your home. You’ll feel better with purifying plants like snake plants and pathos. They suck up contaminants from the air and give off clean oxygen back into your rooms.

Pothos are leafy plants with long stems that want to come over the edges of shelving or baskets. They thrive in most lighting with scheduled watering.

Snake plants have rigid, pointed leaves that stand vertically. They contrast with some other houseplants if you want to display a few types together. Snake plants should withstand a bit of neglect and require little light or water, making them tough to kill.
