Best Indoor Plants To Add A Touch Of Nature To Your Apartment

0 Comment

 

Because so many people live in small apartments, growing a vegetable garden, investing in landscaping and solar garden lights, or creating any sort of natural garden retreat is not really a plausible option. Fortunately, you can still bring nature in and add a touch of natural vibrance to your living space with various plants that thrive indoors. 

 

Just as some plants need full sunlight and heat to survive and grow, others thrive best indoors as they prefer low light conditions. 

 

And there are also tons of undeniable reasons to start adding nature to your home, from the convenience of having a useful herb garden with all your favored herb options to the general mood uplifting capabilities that nature holds. So, if you’re wondering which plants are best for indoor conditions, we’ve listed some of the easier-to-grow options.

 

Hoya Krimson Queen

The Hoya Krimson queen is a leafy green plant that is a joy to grow and perfect for indoor conditions. These plants can also grow to quite an impressive size of about 12 inches over time, so they make ideal attention grabbers for various areas of a home. 

 

For this plant to thrive, it should be watered up to three times a week, although you must allow the soil to dry completely between watering, as the plant is somewhat drought tolerant, and you won’t want to cause root rot. 

 

Snake Plants

Snake plants, also known as mother-in-law’s-tongue, are among the hardiest indoor plants out there; they’re not at all easy to kill. These indoor plants are perfectly effortless to keep around, as they don’t need all that much from you. Snake plants can grow pretty tall as well.

 

You’ll only need to water a snake plant once a month on average, and even less during winter months. They prefer low light conditions, so you should place them away from direct sunlight. And if you want to grow more snake plants, you can do so easily simply by trimming a leaf, creating a few cuttings, and then potting them in damp soil. Propagating snake plants is pretty straightforward, and there are also other methods to consider. 

 

Aloe Vera

Aloe is yet another plant that can be grown quickly from the cuttings of a mature plant. And this indoor plant isn’t just easy to keep thriving, as it’s also a pretty versatile plant to have; it offers various skin health benefits.

 

As a succulent, aloe prefers dry conditions and should be planted in a cactus potting soil mix. Alternatively, you can also grow aloe in regular potting soil with added nutrients. 

 

It’s best to water aloe plants once every two to three weeks. You must also ensure your aloe plants have proper drainage, as most succulent plants are otherwise prone to root rot, which is one of the few ways to kill succulents. 

 

There are also several other low-maintenance indoor plants that you can consider when you start bringing nature in. And once you have been keeping a few leafy green plants thriving for some time, you can then move on to start growing plants that require more love and care to grow.
