Three Indoor Plants to Include in Your Condo

It is natural for every homeowner to want to be in control of how they design their home. But, having to deal with strata limitations in condos can be difficult for some owners. Fortunately, some of these limitations do encourage us to find new and innovative ways to make our condos more like a home.


If you’re the type of person who loves to have indoor plants in your home, here are three options that you can include. We wanted to present plants out of the ordinairy but that still help promote clean air inside your condo. We hope you find the suggestions unique and as interesting as we did.

3 Types of Indoor Plants for your Condo

Money Plant

Also called Devil’s Ivy or Golden Pothos, the Money plant is considered a vining plant. Because of this, the plant can quickly take over its environment. If you put this in your condo, you will need to prune it regularly. But, in turn, it will do its part in removing the toxins in the air.


Apart from being able to remove toxins in your condo, the money plant is considered to have good Feng Shui properties. Having this plant in your home can bring good luck and fortune. Take caution, however, as this plant is toxic.

Mother-in-Law’s Tongue

Unlike certain plants, the mother-in-law’s tongue plant best thrives when it is left alone. During the winter season, the plant only needs to be watered every couple of months. The plant is referred to as the bedroom plant as it is most active during the night. By having this plant in your condo, you can have a higher level of oxygen in the air. And for humans, this is often associated with better sleep. However, the plant is toxic to cats - sorry cat lovers!

Areca Palm

Finally, the Areca Palm is also a recommended indoor plant for your condo. If you would like to have clean air in your home, this is the best plant to include. The good thing about this plant is that it only grows up to four feet in height. Even with just having one plant in your home, you can already enjoy the purifying powers of the plant. Since it removes CO2 in the air, you’re left with oxygen; to help you breathe cleaner and more refreshing air.

Personalizing your new UBC home is one of the most exciting parts about settling into a new home. We hope that these plants help to make your home a more calm and relaxing environment. Call us today so we can help you find a condo that is fit for you.
