Feel like something is missing in your apartment? Try bringing some of the outdoors inside with a houseplant. By adding a bit of life and a little green to your apartment, you’ll start to notice a big difference in a small place.

Here are a few houseplants for beginners, that require low maintenance and limited light.

1. Snake Plant (Sansevieria Trifasciata)

Adding a sculpture like affect with its long leaves is sure to bring a unique touch of green to any room. The Snake Plant is a great plant for those lacking a green thumb, as it can withstand virtually any living conditions. The only way to kill it would be to over water it or not water it at all.

2. Spider Plant (Chlorophytum Comosum)

This popular houseplant is known to grow long hanging leaves with green and white stripes. The spider plant can easily survive in less then perfect conditions, but thrives in the right conditions. It also helps with improving the air quality in your home.

3. Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena Sanderiana)

The Lucky bamboo plant is becoming very popular and is easy to find. It is said that the lucky bamboo plants bring good luck and fortune, especially if the plants were given as gifts. It is also known as being indestructible that can survive in a wide variety of conditions. However their leaves can be mildly toxic so they should be kept out of the reach of children or pets.

4. Peace Lilly (Spathiphyllum Wallisii)

The Peace Lilly is known for being a great houseplant to improve your indoor air quality, while also only requiring a limited light source. While being easy to care for it also is one of the few low-light friendly plants that produce flowers.
