Your apartment flow was designed for human inhabitants but notnecessarily plants. If your apartment doesn’t bring in an abundance natural light, you can find greenery that grow in artificial light. Spider plants are popular, easy plants that won’t need a lot of sun. These plants feature slender spiky leaves that grow by sending out “spiderettes,” or tiny versions of themselves that dangle down the main plant. They are great on high shelves that allow the leaves a place to dangle. Spider plants are awfully hardy and only require water when the leaves dry out. They also are accustomed to a little crowding, so you shouldn’t have to replant them on a day-to-day basis.

The peace lily is also one of the most popular plants for apartments in Bloomington. These pretty plants have stylish forest green leaves and white flowers. They are tall rather than wide and shouldn’t need a lot of sunlight, so you can park one in any corner in your smaller apartment. They also don’t require much watering and will let you know that they’re thirsty by dropping leaves.

If you’re working, studying, or loving your community’s many amenities, you might forget to take care of your houseplants. To avoid killing your vegetation, buy succulents and cacti. These desert plants only look for water once a week in summer weather and less during winter. Place them in a cactus and succulent soil and rock mix and put them in a bright area like a bedroom window sill.

Succulents and cacti are now trendy as room accents. You can order them in many difference colors, shapes, and sizes. Show off your cacti and succulents in colorful flower pots or hanging terrariums, or put in several kinds in one big pot.

Invisible toxins from general dust and household items can live in the environment in your home. You’ll breathe easier with living plants like snake plants and pathos. They absorb odors from the air and release clean oxygen back into your apartment.

Pothos are leafy with longer stems that tend to spill over the ledges of shelving or hanging pots. They excel in any lighting with a daily watering.

Snake plants have firm, pointed leaves that grow up and down. They diverge with some other houseplants if you are looking to display a few varieties together. Snake plants should resist a bit of abandonment and need little lighting or water, so they’re tough to hurt.
