Are you looking for ways to spruce up your apartment this year? Adding new decor, switching out some furniture or re-doing your apartment’s layout might get pricey or overwhelming. An easy way to revamp your modern apartment in downtown Sacramento is by adding some of the best apartment-friendly plants.

There are a number of plants that are perfect additions to your apartment at The Strand. The plants listed below are almost guaranteed to survive in your home, green thumb or not! Check them out below.


Pothos plants are the perfect touch of greenery to add to your ceiling or high shelving units. This leafy green plant loves to hang over the side of its pot or climb up the side of a lattice. It comes in many different colors and variations that will surely complement your space.

This plant also purifies your air, an added plus to having this plant in your home. Don’t worry about this plant dying on you, as it’s pretty low maintenance and doesn’t require specific lighting or amount of water. Just keep an eye on the leaves for any signs of damage!

Snake Plants

If you don’t have a green thumb, snake plants are the perfect plant for you to add greenery to your space. They can easily withstand neglect if you get busy or forget to water this plant.

These potted plants come in many shapes and sizes. They are also purifiers just like the pothos plant. This is a great plant to add to your spacious luxury bathroom on the countertop or on your shelving.


Cacti plants are some of the most resilient plants, making them one of the best apartment-friendly plants. They come in all different shapes, sizes, and even colors! Picking out a few cacti plants for your windowsill is the perfect way to add a bit of color or plant life to your one-bedroom apartment for rent in Sacramento, Ca. Cacti need very little water and care – just make sure they get plenty of sunlight from your large windows. Start your very own collection soon. Just be careful with their needles as they tend to be sharp!


Just like cacti, succulents come in a wide array of sizes, shapes, and colors. These beautiful plants also make a great addition to your cacti, as they need little care and water. A fun way to add these to your apartment would be mixing a few of your favorite cacti with your favorite succulents and adding them to a windowsill pot. What a great housewarming gift for yourself!


Next on our list of the best apartment-friendly plants is bamboo. This plant is by far the most unique plant on the list, as it can create a positive living environment. Bamboo needs lots of shade and water to survive, so it will be easy to keep this uplifting plant alive. This plant is considered to be the living embodiment of feng shui, which we could all use a little bit of in our apartments near Sacramento! Add a bamboo plant on your bathroom countertop or in the corner of your bedroom and watch it thrive.

ZZ Plant

The ZZ plant is home to Zanzibar and is easily one of the lowest maintenance plants out there. This plant has strong bright green leaves that only need to be watered around twice a month. It requires almost no light, so feel free to keep this plant in a corner that doesn’t get much light away from your windows at The Strand.

Iron Plant

Just like the ZZ plant that thrives in a darker corner of your apartment, the iron plant is a perfect addition to your modern apartment in downtown Sacramento. This plant has dark green leaves that will revitalize any space you place them in.

This plant can survive pretty much anything, from poor soil to little water or sunlight. Don’t stress about leaving this plant be as you go about your life.
