Perfect for Small Spaces

In this category, size matters! These pint-sized plants will beautify any cramped or dim apartment.

A popular and truly easy-care plant is the Cascading Pothos. Pothos plants have smooth, heart-shaped leaves and they adapt easily to all environments. Looking for a plant option that will grow quickly with minimal care? This is your guy! Pothos are also terrific air purifiers.

Another perfect fit for this category is the Peace Lily. It's a popular choice for indoor plants because of its white, flower-like features and its ease of care. Peace Lilies have elegant, deep green leaves which are terrific at purifying air of undesired toxins. They enjoy low to medium light, and express a need for water by sagging their leaves.

These extremely manageable plants make a great gift for any friend or family member that may not believe their living space is a suitable plant environment. Let’s prove them wrong!
