Have you always wanted plants, but had bad luck in the past, or are intimidated by the thought of keeping a plant alive in an apartment? Never fear! There are lots of low-maintenance plants that can thrive in our luxury apartments in Tulsa! The plants on our list below require minimal light, watering, space, or all of the above, so they can add a natural touch to just about any apartment.
Know a friend or neighbor in our community of apartments for rent in Tulsa who would like to get some plants but doesn’t know where to start? Be sure to share this post with them once you’re done reading! Now let’s get to our list of easy apartment plants, shall we?
A snake plant sprouts several stiff, ribbon-like leaves that grow upward with a variegated pattern akin to reptilian scales, which is how the plant gets its name. This hardy indoor plant can survive in any light, including low light, and does not need frequent watering, nor does it require pruning. Bear in mind that very low light conditions may reduce the colorful variegation on its leaves; nevertheless, this plant provides a vibrant addition to any room.
If you’d prefer a fern-like plant, the ZZ plant is a perfect choice. Yielding waxy green leaves across a number of stalks, the ZZ plant also tolerates low light and infrequent watering. It’s a resilient little plant that can spring back to life even after some neglect. Don’t worry if it drops some leaves while you’ve been a less-than-perfect gardener. Just water it as normal and it should be revitalized before too long.
A small cactus is an obvious choice for folks who can’t remember to water plants. Many indoor cacti need only partial sunlight, so as long as you place them by a window that gets some natural light, you can typically expect them to stay healthy without much effort on your part. Just make sure these spiny plants are out of reach of any pets or small children who may accidentally prick themselves!
Spider plants bear lots of skinny, ribbon-like leaves that will make your apartment feel like a place of abundance, even when these plants aren’t getting a lot of light. Its arcing green leaves look great in a hanging planter or on the tabletop, and its roots can handle being a little crowded, so you don’t need a huge pot to accommodate them. Spider plants do need to be watered a little more often than some other plants on this list, though—around once a week for best results. It’s not the end of the world if you’re a little late with a watering, though; this plant will tolerate a belated watering every so often.
Finally, the obvious choice: succulents. Succulents have become very popular lately due to their need for infrequent watering and ability to thrive in minimal space. They come in a variety of colors and shapes, but all of them do best in partial to bright light (typically, the more light, the better), so make sure they’ve got a spot by the window, or can spend most of the day under bright artificial light if natural light is unavailable.
