Indoor plants

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.

Peace Lily
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.

Devil’s Ivy
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.

Monstera Deliciosa
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!

Weeping Fig
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.
