As spring approaches and spring cleaning begins, bringing a bit of the sunshine into your home is a must. Perfect for apartments, in size, maintenance, and appearance, these trendy indoor plants are sure to brighten up your 30 Dalton home!
Are you looking to spruce up your apartment with a low-maintenance indoor plant? Air plants are perfect for anyone with a busy schedule and perhaps a not-so-green thumb, as they require very little care. A soak in room temperature water for 10 to 20 minutes every one to two weeks and some indirect sunlight will keep these joyful little plants alive, happy, and bright!
For those looking for a larger and bolder statement plant to brighten up their apartment, the Monstera Deliciosa, aptly nicknamed the “Swiss cheese plant” is a must-have. The large, rich green leaves which develop holes resembling those in Swiss cheese add a pop of color to any living space. Care for the Monstera Deliciosa requires bright, indirect sunlight and a watering every one to two weeks.
The Spider Plant, an indoor staple, is one of the most popular and conditionally adaptable plants. Not only do the plant’s quirky spider-like offshoots make a bold statement in any indoor space, they can also produce small white flowers depending on the environment. Spider plants are known for their ability to survive through care routines that aren’t exactly ideal. With some bright, indirect sunlight, and a few waterings a week, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings will keep your Spider Plant surviving and thriving!
If you’re interested in incorporating indoor plants into your apartment decoration and you’re all about self-care, Lavender would be an excellent addition to your living space. Lavender is a smaller, delicate, plant, making it perfect for brightening up a counter space or home office. This plant has a calming scent and the soft purple color is perfect for a pop of pastel. Regular care for Lavender requires as much direct sunlight as possible, watering thoroughly a few times a week with enough time for soil to dry in between waterings, and appropriate pruning.
For those looking for a little more bold color when incorporating indoor plants into your apartment decoration, the Lipstick Plant is sure to please. This plant produces red flowers which appear extra bright against the deep, waxy, green leaves. It has vine-like tendencies, and is a bit larger than some of the other recommended indoor plants. Bright, indirect sunlight, moderate watering with appropriate drainage, and a decent sized pot will keep any Lipstick Plant blooming and happy!
