Houseplants are a timeless and versatile addition to any living space, big or small. They brighten up rooms effortlessly and create a sense of comfort as you care for them. If you’re a plant beginner, or if you just don’t want to spend too much time caring for plants, Marquette Management has rounded up some independent beauties that will thrive in any home. Here are five low-maintenance plants to liven up your apartment.

Pothos Plant

This cascading plant is perhaps the easiest houseplant to take care of if you are too busy or forgetful of watering and fertilizing. Although not too picky, they do enjoy bright, indirect sunlight. Perch on top of a bookshelf or hang from a woven planter and let their beautiful vines stream down. These also do well straight from the plant shop in their plastic pot equipped with drainage holes.

Dracaena Marginata

TheseĀ low-maintenance, indoor plants resemble mini palm trees and are perfect for bringing some height to unused wall space. As the narrow and braided stem grows, the old leaves will drop and green ones decorated with a red outline will form. It’s not too picky on sunlight but moderate light and regular watering will give it brighter leaves.

Snake Plant

Sit two of these sturdy snake plants on each side of your console table or near the entrance of your home for a balanced and modern look. Let the soil dry out completely before you water as they only need a little drink about once every two weeks. Most species can tolerate any amount of light which makes them the perfect plant to use for decorating any room.

Christmas Cacti

This unique cactus has vibrantly pink flowers that blossom during cooler weather. Unlike other succulents, these require a bit more watering and prefer bright, indirect sunlight. They make great housewarming gifts as they are small and fun to watch bloom.

Split Leaf Plant

Another tropical plant that offers a more exotic look to your living space is the split leaf plant, or Swiss cheese plant. These plants will be happy in indirect light and watering is only required when the soil is dry to the touch. A helpful tip is to stick your finger in an inch or two to see if it is damp.

Indoor plants are proven to purify air, remove carbon monoxide, and act as natural humidifiers. These low-maintenance plants are just another way to make the best of your spaceContact us today to learn more about our apartments for rent where you can make a home that’s uniquely yours.
