Best Plants To Grow In Apartments & Small Spaces
Today we are BACK at you with another post and we are going to be going over the best plants you should be growing in your apartment!
We’ve all been there, right?
Some of us are still there, and that’s okay. That’s why we’re here, to help.
We want to discuss with you our favorite plants to grow in apartments and smaller living spaces that will absolutely thrive in your home.
We curated this list specifically for growing plants under this condition:
- Having little to no direct sunlight in your home.
- Not having a yard to create an outdoor garden.
- Not living in a humid environment.
- And just generally not having enough space.
But why should we let that stop us? Because it definitely shouldn’t.
So wait no more, let’s get right into it.
You might be surprised when I tell you that Avocado plants are extremely easy to grow, even in an apartment!
What do you need to start growing? Simply another avocado!
It’s nothing new to the process of how you do it of course, but if you don’t know already:
- Stick 4 toothpicks into an avocado pit.
- Place on top of a glass of water so the toothpicks hold the pit.
- Fill the glass with wate so the bottom half of the avocado is submerged.
- Wait 2-6 weeks for it to sprout and you can plant it!
#2: Chinese Evergreen
These plants are extremely popular for growing indoors because of how easy they are to take care for and manage.
Chinese Evergreens prefer low lit areas as well as warmer temps so keep that in mind when finding a place for your plant!
They are also part of our top 10 favorite plants to grow indoors anywhere!
Yes really, tomatoes. They are actually extremely easy to grow indoors and are very tolerant
If you would also like to try your hand at starting them from seeds, they are an extremely good plant for beginners to grow!
On average it can take about 6-8 weeks to produce fruit from starting from a seed, but they sprout very quickly (within 1-2 weeks)! It’s extremely gratifying to me watching them grow up and it’s definitely a proud moment when they produce their first yield!
#4: Aloe Vera
I love growing Aloe for so many reasons! First and foremost, the medicinal properties! This is almost always my go to for fixing up scrapes and cuts and works amazingly!
Aloe Vera is also a very easy plant to grow. They really only need to be watered once every three weeks and
Herbs! These are honestly our favorite household plants that we have growing. They require a little more care than most plants on this list here, but don’t let that put you off to starting your own indoor herb garden!
You can buy your own already grown herb of your choice, but we of course always recommend growing from seeds!
We’ve also already curated a post to growing & caring for your own indoor herb plants!
#6: Snake Plants
Snake plants are honestly just too cool to not grow in your apartment. They are stunning plants and a great conversation starter!
And more so, everybody will be impressed you grew your own rather than those nasty plastic ones!
They are tolerant to many indoor settings and great for beginners!
We love some unique succulents! You would be surprised by how many varieties of them are out there!
They are very small cacti that you can put nearly anywhere! We love ours as a middle-piece in our dining room table, coffee table, and on our desks as decor pieces! The possibilities are endless!
Here’s an entire article about all of the types of Succulents you can start growing!
#9: Ficus Bonsai Tree
If you are looking to get into Bonsai growing, these trees are probably the best for beginners to start off with!
They are also fairly easy to grow! They require humid environments so it would be best to have a glass tank over them that you can artificially create! Nearly full sunlight is required as well, so if you have any windows in your apartment that get more light than the rest, then that would be the place for them.
#10: African Violets
In full transparency we have yet to grow African Violets yet, we aren’t actually super huge to growing flowers, but these are the one exception for us that we look forward to starting one day!
They are absolutely gorgeous and unique and would make a great centerpiece! Definitely give growing this a try and come back to let us know how it’s doing!
