12 Indoor Plants for the Small Space & How to Care for Them
If your home wasn't blessed with tons of square footage, that doesn't mean you can't flex your green thumb. All of these indoor plants take up minimal space (but don't worry, there are some trees if you have just a bit more room to work with), and many even require less sun, which is must when you only have a few windows to work with. And if you don't have much of a green thumb—hey, you'll get there!—most of these plants are fairly easy to keep alive. No matter your skill level, your taste, or how much space you have to spare, there's a houseplant for you here. Your indoor garden paradise dreams are about to become a reality.
- Aloe Plant
Aloe loves the sun and only requires water once a week, allowing the soil to dry completely in between. Put your plant in a tall pot that keeps the leaves off the table. If you 're feeling extra creative, paint a rounded pot like a pineapple before adding the aloe.
- Money Plant
Care for the pothos with bright, indirect light and moderate waterings (never allowing the soil to become water-logged). Standard terra cotta pot into a charming sculpture, which brings more impact to the leafy plant.
- Spider Plants
Bright, indirect light and occasional waterings make the spider plant one of the easiest to care for. Show off the curved leaves with a hanging planter for even more drama.
- Red Aglaonema
Not only does this plant feature pretty, bright pink stems and leaves, but it's also super easy to care for. It'll grow in low, moderate, and bright light, but you'll likely notice more color when it's grown in medium light. It's a forgiving plant, so if you forget to water it once in a while, it'll be just fine.
- ZZ Plant
ZZ plants require less water than a lot of plants, so if you tend to neglect yours (rather than overwatering them) you'll do well with this one. It'll thrive in bright, indirect light, but it can also tolerate low light if you have a less-than-sunny spot you want to keep it in.
- Rubber Plants
Like most of the other plants on this list, the rubber plant requires bright, indirect light. You should only water it when the soil is dry. Rubber plants have the added benefit of being one of the best natural air-cleaners out there. Place them near your favorite seating area to enjoy fresh air.
- String of Pearls
You'll quickly have lengthy strands of pearls by leaving this plant in bright, indirect light with enough water to keep the soil steadily moist. Put yours in a hanging pot that allows the plant to cascade over the sides.
- Sweetheart Plant
This adorable little heart-shaped plant, also known as Hoya kerrii, can be sold as either a single leaf-cutting or a whole trailing plant. In any case, it's easy to care for. It's a succulent that needs very little water (Every 3 to 4 weeks is ideal), and it does best in bright, direct light—consider it a perfect little addition to your window sill.
Known for its waxy, heart-shaped flowers with a prominent stamen in the center, this plant needs to be watered every one to two with occasional fertilizing, so they're not low maintenance, but not high maintenance, either.
- Snake Plants
Indirect light is ideal for these plants, along with light waterings that take place only after the soil has fully dried. Place it in an elevated planter to add interest to an empty corner in your hall.
Go with indirect sunlight (too direct and the leaf color will fade) and evenly moist soil that's not wet or dry. To show off the colorful leaves, choose a white pot for this plant.
- Weeping Fig
Bright but indirect light is best for this plant, which people often put in common spaces of their homes, like the living room. Water it every few days to keep the soil moist at all times. Since this plant is full and features many leaves, opt for a simple, white pot.
