Welcome back, UGA students! The Fall semester is upon us, and it’s time to settle back into your dorms, apartments, and houses. You’ve probably heard of the benefits of keeping plants inside, both for the air you breathe and your state of mind—and with exams and homework and extracurricular activities rearing to pile up, having a plant in your house might just be the de-stressor you need!
We know not all of you have the luxury of a backyard where you can keep a garden to plant some of the flowers or herbs we’ve listed in other articles (like which plants to grow to attract pollinators, or keep pests away, or plants you can start late in the fall). But just because you can’t plant things outside in the ground doesn’t mean you can’t plant things inside, in a pot! We’ve compiled a list of plants that will thrive in pots indoors to help make your house a home.
And before you worry—every plant on this list is low-maintenance and easy to care for, so you can keep your focus on getting to class, doing your homework, and spending time with your friends. There were dozens to choose from, so we picked our favorite 10; follow the links at the end of the article to read about more species perfect for apartment living!
