Plants That Are Perfect for Apartment Living


If you're looking to spruce up your apartment or rental space, plants are a great way to add color and life to any room. However, if you don't have much of a green thumb (or even if you do!), it can be difficult to find plants that are low maintenance enough for busy apartment living. Never fear! We've compiled a list of houseplants that are almost impossible to kill, no matter how hard you try.

Snake Plant (Sansevieria)

The Snake Plant is an especially attractive option because its unique patterned leaves make it look as though it's been carefully manicured, when in reality all it needs is the occasional watering (about once every three weeks). The snake plant also helps improve air quality; NASA found this particular species of plant to be particularly effective at filtering out toxins like formaldehyde and benzene from the air.

Spider Plant (Chlorophytum comosum)

Another easy-to-care-for plant is the spider plant. This one will thrive in a wide variety of conditions, from shady spots to bright indirect sunlight, so no matter where you put it in your apartment, chances are it will still thrive. In terms of watering requirements, this one only needs about an inch per week and will let you know when it needs more by drooping its leaves slightly—so all you have to do is give it a little extra love whenever needed.

Aloe Vera (Aloe barbadensis)

This one might just be the easiest plant on the list—it requires almost no attention at all! Aloe vera requires very little water and does best with direct sunlight; other than that, just leave it alone and watch it flourish with minimal effort on your part. Bonus points for being able to use aloe vera for medicinal purposes as well!



No matter what type of plants appeal to your sense of style or how much time you feel like dedicating towards taking care of them, there's definitely some type of houseplant out there that's perfect for your apartment living situation. With these three plants alone, we've given you plenty of options that require very little maintenance but still look stylish enough to add life and color into any space without requiring too much effort on your part! So take some time today and explore which one works best for your lifestyle--you'll be glad you did!    Are you looking for apartments for rent in Wilmington, NC?
