2. Rubber Plant
If you’re currently living in the city, here’s some bad news: even the air inside your apartment is likely polluted.
The good news is, there are little-known ways to combat air pollution in your crib. And that’s growing indoor plants, especially the ones that have purifying abilities.
That’s why we highly recommend that you try growing a rubber plant. It’s one of those species that will not only beautify your crib but will also help purify the air in your apartment naturally.
What’s even better news is that rubber plants don’t need that much attention. It only requires basic needs like indirect sunlight and some water occasionally.

Snake plants are one of the most common options for beginners in apartment gardening. They instantly provide a sense of warmth to any space thanks to their bright yellow and green leaves.
When it comes to maintenance, it’s easier to take care of rubber plants than most common indoor plants. Just put it somewhere where there’s indirect sunlight and water it occasionally.
If you’re wondering how the snake plant got its name, it’s because of the patterns on its leaves that resemble the snake’s skin. And no, it doesn’t attract snakes.
