Plants are the perfect way to liven up your apartment and add greenery to your space! If you’re looking for plants that are easy to maintain in your apartment, and can survive the cold winter months, look no further! Our team has compiled our favorite picks for indoor winter plants below.


Aloe Plant

An Aloe Vera Plant is perfect for those looking for cactus-like low maintenance greenery! The aloe plant holds water similar to a cactus, and can go quite a while without being watered. This type of plant loves the sun, so a spot near a window is ideal! Not to mention, this plant has healing benefits! Aloe is a very soothing substance, and if ever in need, you can simply snip off a small piece of your plant and open it up to reveal its calming properties.



Succulents are an ideal plant to have for an all-season weather area like the Capital Region! Succulents are incredibly unique, and come in all shapes, sizes, and even colors! During the cold winter months, succulents require little water and need a check in about once a month. During the winter months and as the weather warms, they will require more frequent waterings. Similar to Aloe Plants, Succulents deserve a spot in the sunshine!


Christmas Cactus

A Christmas Cactus is a great idea for those who want to see a a pop of red, as these special plants grow gorgeous red flowers. As they are a cactus, they are able to survive with minimal water, and in fact are extremely susceptible to overwatering. If you are hoping to see some flowers, keep this plant in the sunlight! If you’re happy to just have a healthy green cactus this one can survive in full shade. The Christmas Cactus, per its name, is often given as a holiday gift!


Parlor Palm

Want to add a tropical vibe to your apartment? Try out the Parlor Palm plant! With a palm tree and beachy vibe, this plant is a great way to introduce greenery into your space. It is also known for its ability to purify the air in your space! A very low maintenance choice, the Parlor Palm thrives in minimal sunlight, and likes to be watered every one to two weeks.


Live Ivy Plant

If you’re looking for something to add some wow factor to your space, try out the fast-growing Live Ivy Plant! We love this plant for its voluminous nature and its high reaching tendrils. If you’re hoping to build a wall of green, this plant will climb walls if they are near. The Live Ivy likes to stay moisturized and out of the sun! We recommend keeping a spray bottle near and giving a spritz quite often.
