Take a quick look around your apartment right now. Looking at it now, how does it make you feel? Do you feel free and light when you look around the space you occupy? Or do you feel a little caged in? Sometimes, no matter how big the room can be, it can still be stifling. One of the challenges about any space, apartment or otherwise, is making it feel comfortable and alive.

While you can do plenty of things to decorate your apartment, arrange and rearrange it to look a certain way, the one foolproof way to brighten it up is through plants. It can be green and lush or colorful and bright. Now, before the prospect of plant care makes you run away, you should know that plants can be perfect for any atmosphere as well as your mental health.

Whatever your reasons for buying indoor plants for your apartment, you first need to confirm whether or not they can survive in an apartment. Of course, most plants will thrive outdoors, but nothing will grow and survive inside an apartment.

Today’s let’s take a look at five plants that are perfect for apartment living!

Green is not everyone’s color. While most plant lovers with experience can appreciate just about any plant, beginners are a different story. Suppose you want something bright and colorful; Rex Begonias are nothing like the typical green plants that you see. This plant can boast unique patterns that weave together the colors pink, purple, and smoky green. It truly is a sight to behold. 

If you’ve ever been to old churches, the plant might remind you of the way stained glass looks. The shape of the leaves is nothing to scoff at, either. It showcases beautiful puckered, hairy, and lobed leaves. Maintenance for this funky little thing is relatively easy as well. You just need to give it moderate light, water, and fertilizer.

Moth Orchid

Now, if you want a few more options for color, consider the Moth Orchid. It comes in several colors like vibrant red, salmon-orange, pink, purple, frosty white, and even an elegant and enchanting black. They’re called Moth Orchids because when you look at a cluster of them, it looks similar to the wings of a moth. 

Orchids might not seem like a suitable indoor plant, but what makes them ideal for apartment living is that it doesn’t require soil. Instead, it uses a special orchid mix to help the roots get air. These plants prefer similar temperatures to humans. They’re easy to grow and are simply breathtaking to look at.

Fiddle Leaf Fig

As an apartment owner, your instinct is probably to go for the smallest and most low-maintenance plants. Of course, it’s an understandable way of thinking. However, no matter how “low maintenance” it might be, dozens of tiny indoor plants are more challenging to care for than a big, beautiful indoor plant. 

The Fiddle Fig Leaf is one of those plants that make any room so much more refreshing to look at. While the leaves are just your standard green, the big beautiful leaves on them make it so calming. This plant is bigger than your average indoor plant, but it can still thrive in an apartment. Think of them as living sculptures in your home.

Summary

Apartments can feel empty and lacking sometimes. One of the best things you can do to make it better is to get indoor plants that can thrive in an apartment. It can be good for your mental health, and it makes your home so much brighter. There are plenty of other plants you can bring into your apartment.
