Before you go out to buy indoor plants for your apartment, you have to check out where in your apartment can you put them. You might need to move a thing or two if you want to create space for your new indoor plants.

Try to create space where there is some sunlight. If you are unable to do that, get a houseplant that doesn’t require much sunlight. Also, you can put some of your plants on your terrace if you have one. You can even hang your plants over the balustrade of your terrace. You just have to get special flowerpots with hooks which makes your pots attachable to your balustrade. The trick is to find space when there seemingly is none.
