Houseplants That Can Lighten Your Apartment and Your Mood!

There's nothing like a little greenery to brighten up your home. Whether you're looking for something to go on your desk at home or in the living room, these houseplants are perfect for apartment living! Learn how you can use plants to improve your mood and home to help make your apartment much more pleasant with the help of plants. 


Pothos is a tropical plant that's easy to care for, which makes it ideal for beginners. It can grow in lower lights and will thrive if you have a sunny window or artificial light. You can grow it in a pot or hanging basket, but it's best if you don't overwater it; water less frequently than you think you should and let the soil dry out between watering sessions. Pothos will tolerate a variety of soils as long as there aren't any toxic ones present (no fertilizer needed!), but these plants are especially fond of acidic soil with lots of peat moss added to retain moisture and make sure they're getting enough nutrients from their environment. 

Snake Plant 

The snake plant, also known as mother-in-law's tongue, is a beautiful and versatile houseplant that can add a dash of greenery to any room. These plants are often displayed in offices and homes because they're so easy to care for—they can survive in low light, low humidity and dry air. The snake plant is even able to withstand temperatures below freezing! 

Aloe Vera 

If you're looking for a houseplant that's easy to care for, consider Aloe vera. It's a succulent that can withstand neglect and even a lack of sunlight, making it ideal for people who live in apartments without access to lots of natural light. Because they're so forgiving and low-maintenance, succulents are great starter plants for apartment dwellers with little green thumb experience—or those who need something easy to take care of while they're out of town or busy at work all week. 

Spider Plant 

Spider plants are easy to care for and can grow up to 3 feet tall. They like high light, but will also tolerate low light, so if you don't have a bright window in your home, this is one of the houseplants that will be happy with what you've got. It's very hardy and drought tolerant, which means it will survive even when neglected! Spider plants can be grown in large containers or hanging baskets as well as on their own roots. 


If you're looking for a plant that's a little more unusual than the standard potted ferns and orchids, basil is your best bet. It's easy to grow indoors and can be used in everything from sauces to smoothies. It also provides great entertainment value: basil plants are fun to watch when they start growing new leaves! 

Bamboo Palm 

Bamboo palm, a popular indoor plant, is a good choice for people who don't have a lot of time to care for a plant. The bamboo palm is easy to maintain and can be left alone for long periods of

time without needing much attention. The bamboo palm is also good for those who have pets or children because it's fairly durable and won't need to be moved around as often as other plants might require. 

English Ivy 

If you've been looking for a houseplant that's easy to care for and beautiful, consider English ivy. This plant is a creeping vine with leaves that will grow up to 10 feet long. It can be trained to grow in a hanging basket so it can hang down or climb up your walls, depending on which direction you want it to grow in. You'll need large containers if you plan on keeping the plant indoors all year long—it grows very quickly in the summer months! 

These are just a few of the plants that will add a little green to your apartment. All of them have similar characteristics, so you can choose whichever you like best!
