They also are accustomed to a crowded pot, so you won’t have to prune them on a day-to-day basis.

Unseen toxins from outside pollution and household things can store up in the environment in your apartment. You’ll breathe easier with live plants like snake plants and pathos. They absorb contaminants from the environment and give off clean oxygen back into your rooms.

Pothos are plants with large leaves with lengthy stems that tend to creep over the edges of shelves or hanging pots. They thrive in most lighting with a daily watering.

Snake plants have stiff, pointed leaves that stand up and down. They diverge with some other popular plants if you plan to cluster a few varieties together. Snake plants can withstand some abandonment and need relatively little natural light or water, making them difficult to kill.
