The scientific benefits of surrounding yourself with greenery are many; plants calm us down, help air quality, and may even boost life expectancy. If you live in a tiny city apartment or a cheap basement while you're grinding and hustling, though, it can feel tricky to get your dose of greenery time. Who has space for huge house plants when you can barely fit in a TV, a bed, AND somewhere for your clothes? Fear not; there are a lot of space-maximizing techniques for introducing plant life into tiny living areas.
You can, of course, get fake plants, which introduce the look of greenery without the need to take care of them. For some of us, that's the best option; long hours or a decidedly not-green thumb can mean that zero-maintenance plants are the only way forward. However, very low-care plants like succulents are popular right now for a reason; they look adorable and require minimal attention from busy millennials who are likely working two jobs and a side hustle. Want to inject some greenery into your living space with a minimum of fuss, expense or space expenditure? These green hacks will help make your living spaces a natural oasis.
