Even before the pandemic kept us indoors, condo dwellers always kept a reminder of nature by their tables or windows. It’s a relaxing escape from the stresses of life, while it can also be an accompaniment when studying and working.
Are you thinking about getting your first plant for your unit? Let us guide you through a few choices and help you decide which indoor plants can kickstart your new gardening hobby!
The aloe vera plant’s benefits are varied enough that it is easily a favorite grab for those who want indoor plants. There’s a reason why aloe vera is used in many medicinal items and skincare beauty brands! Make sure to water it regularly while leaving enough drainage in its soil while exposing it to light sunlight in average temperatures - not too hot, and not too cold.
Rubber Tree Plant
The rubber tree plant is known for its darker-shaded and glossy leaves, adding a certain flavor to your unit’s workspace. It’s quite easy to take care of - all you need is to water it a couple of times a week, expose it to bright but indirect light, and give it space to grow. Who knows, it might grow from a tabletop plant to a 10 feet plant!
ZZ plants are a favorite among plant lovers, especially when you see tons of posts from plant collectors on Instagram and Pinterest. Its wide, attractive, dark leaves elicit a certain mood that relaxes the vibe around you, and it is said to symbolize friendship, making it a great gift to give to friends. It’s resistant to drought and thrives better in low light, hence its once-a-month watering makes it convenient for the busybody - as long as the soil isn’t too dry or too damp. Better yet, it is said to be an air purifier that removes harmful toxins in the air.
Just like its namesake, the spider plant’s slim but bright leaves stretch out into a beautiful shape that makes it a house plant staple. It’s an ideal plant for new green thumbs - all you need is sunlight, as long as it is not harsh, direct light. They usually prefer colder temperatures, as long as it is not too damp.
