If you are looking for a few living greenery in your living spaces, these no-fuss houseplants are a wonderful gift for your apartment.

The Top Plants For Apartments In Indianapolis With Artificial Light

Your apartment layout was designed for people but notalways plants. If your apartment doesn’t bring in a lot of natural light, you can still enjoy plants that flourish in artificial light. Spider plants are popular, low-maintenance plants that won’t demand much sun. These plants feature slender spiky leaves that reproduce by spintering out “spiderettes,” or mini doppelgangers of themselves that dangle off of the host plant. They look perfect on high shelving that give the tendrils room to grow. Spider plants are pretty adaptable and only require care when the leaves are dry. They also don’t mind a crowded pot, so you don’t have to replant them almost ever.

Don’t forget about the peace lily as a perfect plant for Indianapolis apartments. These pretty flowers have stylish forest green leaves and ivory flowers. They rise taller than they are wide and shouldn’t demand much light, so you can park one in any nook of your small apartment. They also don’t demand much upkeep and will tell forgetful caretakers that it’s watering time when the drop leaves.

The Best Apartment Plants That Won’t Require Tons Of Water

If you’re a work-a-holic, traveling, or experiencing your community’s outdoor amenities, you could overlook to water your leafy friends. To side step killing your vegetation, go with cacti and succulents. These desert plants only need to be watered once a week in warmer months and even less during the cold. Plant them in a desert soil mix and place them in a sunny area like a bedroom window sill.

Cacti and succulents are very fashionable as room accents. You can order them in various sizes, colors, and shapes. Place your succulents and cacti in decorative flower pots or hanging terrariums, or put in different species in a spacious pot.

The Best Plants For Cleaning Your Apartment Air

Unseen toxins from outside pollution and household things can accumulate in the environment in your apartment. You’ll live better with live plants like pothos and snake plants. They eat up toxins from the environment and give off pure air back into your apartment.

Pothos are leafy plants with longer stems that like to creep over the corners of shelves or hanging pots. They excel in most lighting with a daily watering.

Snake plants have firm, pointed leaves that grow upright. They differ with some other popular plants if you want to cluster a few types together. Snake plants should withstand some forgetfulness and require not much natural light or water, meaning that they are difficult to hurt.
