Gardening 101: How To Choose an Indoor Plant

Just because you live in apartment, doesn’t mean you cannot adorn you living space with plants. Greenery can thrive indoors and help spice up your décor. So even if you do not have a “Green Thumb” here are three tips for choosing the perfect indoor plant.

Subtropical: the best indoor plants are the ones which come from subtropical climates. Any plant that is used to heat and harsh climate will thrive in an apartment setting.

Air purifiers: studies have shown that indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air. So if you are going to own a plant, get one that has air purifying qualities like the pothos plant.

No water: if you are a busy professional or just always out of the house, grab a plant that can survive on little water, just in case you forget to water it for a few days.
