Springtime is just around the corner and most of us can’t wait to get out of hibernation mode and into the sunshine and the wild outdoors! If you’re a plant lover, there are so many ways to brighten up your apartment by bringing your garden indoors and decorating with plants! This does not mean getting an occasional flower bouquet for your kitchen table, keeping different kinds of live plants in your home can really help to circulate the air, freshen your space, and they also look great with most decor, adding a nature-filled vibe. Here are ten ways to decorate your apartment with plants!
1. Let Your Plants Grow Wild
The best feeling you get when gardening is seeing what you plant grow! Climbing figs and many ivy plants tend to grow long and fast and can look great when hung up properly indoors. Try placing the plant so that it wraps around your door frame for a jungle-like entrance!
2. Window Plants
For plants that need lots of sunlight, try adding extra shelves that hook directly onto the windows or find a small table to place your plants on. This is a good area to keep any herbs for cooking, aloe, and other small plants. Pick out bright-colored pots to really show off your green thumb!
3. Hanging Plants
These hanging macrame plant holders have made quite a sensation on the web and Instagram for obvious reasons!

They are like tiny aquarium tanks for small plants like cacti and succulents and are fairly easy to maintain if you tend to forget to water bigger plants.
6. Plants and Spring Decor
If you don’t want to fill your whole house with plants, even just a few pots here and there can really liven the room combined with plant paintings and other decors. Go for plants that help purify the air like spider plants and aloe vera so that it always feels like you’re walking through a meadow in your own apartment!
7. Repurpose Old Furniture For Your Plants
