They may be named “houseplants,” but indoor vegetation can thrive in apartments too. Plants add excitement to your apartment decor, enhance air quality, change your mood, and make you feel near to the world if you can’t travel outdoors to have fun in your wonderful community. The top plants for apartments in Indianapolis don’t need a lot of pampering. If you want topiaries or succulents in your space, these low-maintenance plants are a great present for your apartment.

The Best Plants For Apartments In Indianapolis With Artificial Light

Your apartment flow was created for human inhabitants but notalways plants. If your apartment doesn’t have a lot of sun, you can find greenery that flourish in artificial light. Spider plants are nice, hardy plants that don’t require a lot of sun. These plants have skinny flat leaves that reproduce by sending out “spiderettes,” or smaller replicants of themselves that dangle from the primary plant. They are perfect on higher shelves that allow them a place to grow. Spider plants are pretty forgiving and only require watering when the leaves dry out. They also are accustomed to a crowded pot, so you don’t have to replant them almost ever.

One of the most popular plants for apartments in Indianapolis is the peace lily. These sweet flowers have elegant dark green leaves and white flowers. They are more in height than width and shouldn’t require much natural light, so you can fit one in any nook of your small apartment. They also don’t demand much watering and will show you that they’re thirsty when they lose leaves.

The Best Apartment Plants That Shouldn’t Require Constant Drinks Of Water

If you’re a work-a-holic, studying, or enjoying your apartment community’s outdoor amenities, you might forget to water your houseplants. To stop killing your plants, go with cacti and succulents. These desert-native plants only need to be watered once or twice a week in summer seasons and less during winter. Place them in a desert potting mix and stick them in a sunny area like a kitchen window.

Cacti and succulents arenow fashionable as decor accents. You can get them in various sizes, colors, and shapes. Show off your cacti and succulents in fun flower pots or hanging terrariums, or mix and match some unique kinds in a big pot.

The Best Plants For Cleaning Your Inside Air

Microscopic substances from outdoor air and inside things can live in the environment in your home. You’ll breathe easier with purifying plants like snake plants and pathos. They eat up odors from the air and give off pure air back into your living space.

Pothos are plants with large leaves with longer stems that want to come over the corners of shelves or hanging pots. They work in most lighting with a daily watering.

Snake plants have firm, pointed leaves that grow vertically. They differ with other plants if you plan to group a few types together. Snake plants will withstand a little abandonment and need relatively little light or water, so they’re hard to kill.
