In recent years, indoor plants have made a roaring return to fashion – and it’s a trend that doesn’t appear to be going away any time soon! With many different species requiring only a small amount of attention to grow and thrive, indoor plants make an excellent addition to your apartment and can really help you make the most of a smaller space.
We’ve put together a list of our favourite apartment-friendly plants that we’re sure you’ll love just as much as we do.
If you’ve never owned an indoor plant before, a peace lily would be an excellent place to start. With lush green leaves and fragrant white flowers, the peace lily is known best for its air-purifying properties but is also one of the easiest indoor plants to care for. Preferring to be kept out of direct sunlight and in a more shaded spot, peace lilies are a great option for those with little natural light looking to add some greenery to their living space.
For those concerned about indoor plants taking up too much floor space, a hanging variety like devil’s ivy might be just the thing. Featuring a beautiful display of cascading green leaves, devil’s ivy can be hung in different corners of your apartment and really make for a delightful feature. Highly tolerant to drought, the devil’s ivy plant can also thrive for weeks without water, making it a great choice for the more forgetful gardeners among us.
Affectionately known as the Swiss cheese plant, monstera deliciosa is recognised for its heart-shaped leaves that eventually form holes that resemble Swiss cheese. Originating from the tropical jungles of South America, monstera plants prefer a warmer environment but are accustomed to seeing little sunlight. Control the size your monstera plant grows to by choosing larger or smaller pots, but be warned – this one can double in size within a year!
While the fiddle leaf fig may have had its moment in the sun, it is now the weeping fig’s time to shine. A stylish addition to any home, the weeping fig is a true feature plant and can grow to the size of a full tree. If you’re planning to purchase a mature plant, look for one with a braided trunk for something truly special.
