If you want to become a plant parent but you’re worried about the tiny space you have at home, you really have nothing to worry about. Because guess what, there are houseplants out there that are just perfect for tiny spaces just like yours!
You don’t have to give up your dreams of becoming a plant parent just because you don’t have space for a garden. And we know because we’ve tried nursing little plant babies before in a tiny apartment. It turns out, some indoor plants don’t care that much about the space at all!
Below are some of the little potted greens that you need to practice your green thumbs on:
- Yucca Cane Plants
If you’re looking for an indoor plant to freshen up your work desk, the Yucca Cane Plant will do just the right job. Its lush green leaves and a textured stem will certainly give a unique character to your work-from-home set-up.
It can thrive in low-light areas, so even if you like your house dimmer than usual, it’s not a problem for this plant. It doesn’t need that much water either. Just always check the soil for dryness. If it’s dry, then drizzle it with water.
- Snake Plants
Don’t worry, this will not attract snakes to your house. Its pointy green and yellow leaves are what makes it a great indoor plant because it can freshen up any space. Look into your fellow snake plant parent’s room and see how great of an accent this potted green is!
The best thing about it is that it only needs indirect sunlight and occasional watering.
Fill your room with some love by placing this heart-shaped flower anywhere in your room. Even in tiny corners, this plant will fit in because of its relatively small size.
It’s not low-maintenance but it’s not high maintenance either. Pamper them with water twice and with occasional fertilizers. Maintaining the glow of this heart-shaped flower can be a little bit of work, but it’s worth it!
The cute small size and rounded green leaves of the Pilea are to die for! It’s cuteness overload when you put this plant in visible areas of your room like your work desk. Don’t worry, it won’t get in the way that much. If you’re gunning for a minimalist theme, this plant will do the job.
Since it’s small, it also requires very minimal care. The best approach in taking care of this plant is to drench and dry technique. It means that you have to water them thoroughly first, then let the soil totally dry out before drenching them again with water.
To maintain the glow of its teeny tiny leaves, do some misting every now and then.
- Rubber Plants
The rubber plant is an easy choice for most plant parents. Not only does it beautify a space, but it can also clean the air in your room naturally. That’s fresh air and ambience for you!
The rubber plant only needs bright indirect sunlight and some water for it to live a long and happy life.
- ZZ Plant
If you’re a forgetful plant parent, here’s the answer to your forgetful habits. The ZZ plant thrives both in shady areas and spots with bright and indirect sunlight. It also doesn’t need that much water so even if you forget to drizzle it, its wand-like stems and shiny oval-shaped leaves will continue to grow and glow!
These are only some of the indoor plants that you can nurse if you’re a small-space gardener. They don’t take up that much space, but they certainly freshen up and liven up any room!
