Do you want low-maintenance apartment plants? Try the snake plants or devil’s ivy seen here.

Adding beautiful plants to your apartment home can create a calm, welcoming space. Plus, keeping indoor plants can help purify the air and boost your mood. If you want to add some plant life or your apartment but don’t consider yourself much of a gardener, you still have options. The following four apartment plants are low-maintenance enough for anyone to add to their home design. These plants can brighten up your Beechtree Apartments home and may even inspire you to branch out and add other houseplants to your interior design. 

Bamboo Plants

Bamboo is an excellent low-maintenance plant for beginners. There are several varieties, all of which make for great apartment plants. They don’t need soil to thrive, just plenty of water. They can live off of indirect sunlight and need just about two to three inches of water covering their roots at all times. Typically, you only need to water these plants once or twice weekly. You can find different sizes of bamboo for your home, including larger plants that can add a bold appearance to that neglected corner of your apartment. 

Apartment Cacti 

If you want an apartment plan you will never worry about, try a cactus! These desert plants love direct sunlight but don’t require much water. They should get about four hours of sun per day but only need to be watered when their soil is completely dry. You can use soil intended for succulents or cacti, as it dries faster than typical potting soil and prevents root rot. You can find potted cacti plants of various sizes to suit how much counter space you have available throughout your apartment. 

Pothos Plants 

This low-maintenance indoor plant is ideal for a novice who wants to add an easy plant to their apartment home. These plants are also often called “devil’s ivy,” even though it is not ivy. It gained this nickname because it is almost impossible to kill and can stay green even when kept in the dark. The heart-shaped leaves are bright green with variegated white, yellow, or light green streaks. 

The leaves grow out over the pots to create a cascading appearance that makes these plants look great when placed on bookshelves or window ledges. Pothos plants (Epipremnum aureum) prefer low-light areas and require little daily care. You can place them in regular soil, but you must be careful not to overwater them. The soil should be completely dry before you water again. Also, note that this plant is toxic to cats, so it may not be suitable for your apartment if you have a feline companion.

Snake Plants

The Snake Plant (Sansevieria) is one of the easiest apartment plants to care for, making it an ideal low-maintenance option for someone without much time to tend to plants. You can recognize this plant by its stiff, sword-like leaves ranging from six inches to several feet high. They vary in color but are generally green-banded or striped with a yellow or cream border. This plant can go weeks between waterings without losing its vitality. Like the other low-maintenance plants, let the soil dry before watering, and keep your plant in direct sunlight. However, these plants can be toxic to cats and dogs, so be careful if you have curious pets.
