5 Indoor Plants That Decorate and Purify Your Apartment

August 2, 2019


There are a number of reasons to green up your apartment. With the limitations placed on changing paint and finishes in apartments, as well as the many benefits that popular houseplants provide, consider adding some natural greenery into your apartment today.

Plants look lovely and are an easy way to add visual interest to an apartment. Below are a few of the best indoor plants based on the benefits they provide and how easily they thrive indoors. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can manage to care for the following throughout the year.

Aloe Plant 

One of the easiest plants to have inside is an aloe plant. This plant doesn’t require a great deal of tending to, but thrives best in a place where it receives plenty of sunlight. Not only does an aloe plant’s gel have healing properties for cuts and burns, but the plant also purifies the air. You’ll see brown spots on the plant if there are excess pollutants in the air, most of them coming from commonly used cleaning products.

Rubber Tree

Rubber Tree plants are great for the air and require very little maintenance. They are great for those who may feel less than confident when it comes to their plant tending abilities. Rubber trees thrive in low light and cooler temperatures, making them great for many places around an apartment. 

Snake Plant 

Snake plants are another great option for your indoor plant needs. This plant variety can be ignored for multiple weeks at a time and still look as vibrant as the day you got it. This makes spider plants a great option if you travel a lot and won’t be around to water it regularly. 

Spider Plant 

Spider plants are known as one of the most adaptable indoor plants. As long as your spider plant is in a pot with adequate drainage, it should fare well in your apartment while improving the quality of the air you breathe.  

English Ivy 

English Ivy has been said to be one of the best indoor plants for air purification. In addition to this, it looks lovely and can be grown as a hanging or floor plant, allowing for a creative use of space. Combine a hanging plant with potted plants on the ground for a fun and diverse green space in your apartment.
