This is the only plant I've been able to keep alive in my apartment. I'm not home much, but I would really like to see a bit more greenery when I do come home. Any suggestions for low maintenance plants?

Hi Jeremy, don't feel too bad! There are many other busy professionals who are in the same boat as you. It is for this reason, that we have a selection of ideabooks on this topic. In our experience, the best plants which stay green, yet require little maintenance are hardy desert plants or succulents. Their shelf life is enormous; you will truly find yourself wondering how they are still alive after so much time has elapsed! We understand that in an ideal world, people love to have herbs or other more functional plants in their kitchens or living areas, but these do require upkeep. Unless you have the time and patience to figure out the right spot for sunlight, and can keep track of how often it has been watered, we would advise against it. Nonetheless, please take a look at the following ideabooks from our homify experts on adding greenery to your internal spaces: https://www.homify.co.uk/ideabooks/3359/greenery-for-inside OR https://www.homify.co.uk/ideabooks/2646/house-plants
