People who live in houses, have more capabilities for gardening and lawns. Besides this, those people have more space so they can keep plants. If you live in a small apartment, you may think that there is no place for any kind of plants there! But there is! There are many plants which are small, and doesn’t require too much attention. The perfect solution for you!
There are many benefits of keeping the plants in your apartment. They will provide you a fresh air and they smell good, so you don’t need air fresheners. This is especially important if you are a smoker! Your apartment will stink and be filled with negative compounds from the cigarettes. If you don’t know, people who don’t smoke don’t like staying in rooms where smoking is allowed. The cigarette smoke is dangerous for them too! But, if you have several plants in your apartment, you will minimize this effect of cigarettes on your visitors.
The recommended plants for your apartment are: Asplenium nidus “Bird’s Nest Fern”, Chamaedorea elegans “Parlor Palm”, Pepperomia, Philodendron “Monstera” and Zamioculcas zamiifolia “ZZ or Eternity Plant”. Although they are different, and they come from different parts of the world, they have similar characteristics. Every plant from the mentioned list is slow-growing (this is important, because if you have fast-growing plants, you will have to pay more attention to them, and they require more space), it is non-toxic to the pets and doesn’t require too much water. I must remind you that use of chemical fertilizers is seriously forbidden! Having just one or two plants from the list, will make your apartment much better place for life!
