8 Houseplants That Can Spruce Up Your Apartment This Season

Whether you know you have a green thumb or you’re hoping that this – your fourth cactus – is going to be the one to outlive them all, purchasing plants to add warmth and character into your studio apartments in Kansas City is something you should consider. 

Many studio apartments, in Kansas City or otherwise, tend to be a bit drab and monochromatic, which isn’t what you want when springtime comes around. Springtime is when everything around is starting to bloom, when the grass starts to become greener and the leaves on the trees start to return. Adding a little of that outside flair into your apartment can only help shoo away the wintertime blues. 

If you’re looking for the perfect plant to add into one of the many studio apartments in Kansas City, here are a couple that you might want to consider:


1. Citrus Trees

Citrus trees make for amazing additions to your apartment to help brighten it up after the cold winter months. Citrus trees are one of the trendiest plants to have in your home this season, and while they do require a little extra TLC, the benefits from having one of these trees in your home more than makes up for it. 

If you add a citrus tree into your home, you need to ensure that your tree is getting the proper sunlight, watering, and drainage. It’s a bit of a struggle trying to find the sweet spot between all of these factors, but once you’re able to do so, you’ll have fresh citrus like lemons or limes in your home all year long – not just in the spring. 


2. Monstera

Monstera plants are widely popular house plants, and for good reason. Not only are they beautiful to look at and add amazing character to your home, but they’re also extremely low maintenance and easy to care for if you find that you don’t quite have as much of a green thumb as you were hoping you’d have. 

Don’t worry if you don’t have a bright and sunny spot in your apartment, as monstera plants grow just as well in lower light – though a more sunny spot will make them grow bigger and faster. As long as you observe the proper care of this plant, it will make for an amazing addition to your apartment this spring!


3. Asparagus Ferns

An asparagus fern is a hearty plant that can take much of the abuse that you throw at it. While it’s called a fern, it isn’t one really – having some of the looks of a fern but without all of the pointed care that ferns need. You can place this plant in front of a bright and sunny window or in a corner out of the way and still have a beautifully green plant that brightens up your room, making this great for small apartments. However, be sure to keep this plant’s soil moist at all times, or it’ll die quickly. 

It is important to note that asparagus ferns, while beautiful, are very toxic to both dogs and cats. If you have an indoor pet, then the asparagus fern is not for you. 


4. Money Tree

Money doesn’t grow on trees – unless you’re talking about the money tree plant. Often seen as a symbol for wealth and prosperity, the money tree plant makes for an amazing addition to your home or to your office. This plant can grow up to eight feet tall indoors, and the braided trunk adds an interesting character that not many other trees can boast. 


5. Spider Plant

Spider plants are amazing for purifying the air in your home, and having multiple of them ensures that your home’s air stays fresh and clean smelling. This low-maintenance plant only needs watering once a week and bright, indirect sunlight to stay happy and healthy. The best part? It’s extremely easy to propagate spider plants, meaning that once you have one spider plant, it’s easy to have multiple more!

6. String of Pearls

While not a very large plant, the string of pearls plant is definitely a showstopper. Looking exactly what it sounds like, this plant thrives in bright, indirect sunlight for a few hours a day, but it only needs to be watered every two to three weeks. As far as plants go, this is a unique, eye-catching plant that’s low maintenance, and adds great color to your apartment!


7. Orchid

If you’re a fan of flowering plants, then it doesn’t get much easier than with orchids. Orchids make for a great houseplant because they’re extremely easy to care for and very forgiving. Your orchid will only need to be watered about once a week – be careful not to overwater your plant! – and needs bright, indirect light. Doing so ensures that you’ll have a beautiful, flowering plant in your home or in your office space. 


8. Air Plants

Did you know that you can actually grow plants in your apartment without the need for any soil? Tillandsia, also known as air plants, can grow without the need for any kind of potting soil. All you need to do is dunk them into water every ten days or so to promote their continued growth. It really doesn’t get much easier than that!
