After moving into your new home or apartment, the next step is to begin the decorating process. This can be stressful, but can also be incredibly fun as you are personalizing your living space to be exactly how you want it. One of the best decorative categories that can breathe some life into your home is plants, and our property management experts have put together a list of good houseplants for different living situations!

Low Involvement

These are plants that are great for people who don’t have the time to take care of a plant, but still really enjoy the looks of them. They require very little water, sunlight, and attention but look just as great! One of the most popular plants of this category is the Snake plant. This plant can go without water for quite some time, and two weeks without care won’t affect it. Another good option for those that don’t have the time to constantly maintain a plant is a cactus or an Aloe plant. They both are easy to take care of and don’t require much sun or water.

Low Light Plants

If you live in an area that doesn’t get much sunlight during the winter, you’re going to want to get a plant that can handle very little light. An awesome plant for this type of environment is an Ivy. This is a plant with vines that hang down, which creates a unique look in the room. If you’re looking for a plant that flowers and still doesn’t require much light, which is pretty rare, try using an Anthurium to add a splash of color or as a centerpiece!

Plants That Need a Lot of Sun

If you live in an environment that gets a lot more sunlight, you have the option to get a plant that requires a lot of sun! In this case, a great option is a Jade. It has waxy leaves, and looks great on a windowsill or outside on a patio. Even though they need consistent sunlight, Jade plants don’t require constant watering. If a Jade doesn’t match the look and feel you’re going for, some other plants that thrive in full sun are the African Milk Bush and the Papyrus plant.
