Having plants in your apartment is a good way to add instant greenery along with a nice natural sentiment. Living in a small apartment can be difficult at times, especially when you want to increase your space with little effort. Storing some of your excess items at MobiStorage Perth will help make space for some indoor plants. Most apartments have enough light for plants, but just make sure to keep them out of direct sunlight so they don’t wilt away. This article will provide a guide on which plants we recommend you should consider adding to your apartment along with how to position them.

Hang your plants

Hanging plants are a good way to add instant greenery to your small apartment. Just be sure that you have enough light sources and keep these plants out of direct sunlight, otherwise they will just wilt away. If hanging plants aren’t for you, then try buying a potted plant that can fit on a windowsill or even in your bathtub. If you don’t have enough room in your apartment to place pots and plants, consider putting some unused furniture and appliances in Storage Perth.

Indoor Hanging Plant

Artificial Plant

Of course, a very popular choice is to get an artificial plant; just to make sure you get one that looks real! The reason why they are so popular is that they are easier to maintain then a normal plant and they do not require sun or consistent watering. They also, like a real plant, they provide a lot of greenery and color and can help make your small apartment feel less cramped.

Snake Plant

Another plant that would be great for a small space is the Snake Plant, also known as Mother-in-Law’s Tongue or Sansevieria. Its dark green leaves look great as floor plants and their height makes them perfect for hanging pots. They’re also resistant to dusty conditions, pet dander, and other pollutants, making them a good option if you have allergies.


Another great plant that is easy to maintain and won’t wilt under low light conditions is succulents. They also come in a variety of shapes, colours, and sizes. Some succulents make great apartment plants because they don’t need too much water and they’re very easy to look after.

Spider Plant

Last but not least is the Spider Plant. These plants are easy to grow and propagate; all you need to do is place three of four cuttings in water, wait for them to form roots, then plant them in soil. They’re also great for purifying the air indoors and help to remove toxins such as carbon monoxide and formaldehyde.
