Indoor Plants For Your Apartment This Fall

Indoor plants are a great way to spice up your space here at The Hat, but as we all know – sometimes plants can be tricky to take care of, especially as the days are getting shorter!

Luckily for you, we know of a few plants that will survive and thrive in your suite this fall – thanks to all the natural light you get from the windows and the ample space you have to put them.

Check out our list of these 4 indoor plants that you (probably) won’t kill!



This no-fuss tropical plant has thin, upright leaves with irregular banding that resembles the skin of a reptile. says Marino. Its adaptations for surviving drought make it a suitable succulent plant choice for anyone, anywhere. It prefers medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light.

You just need to water it about every three to four weeks, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. If it seems as though the plant is getting less light, you can increase the water frequency! 

A good tip to follow is to wait for your snake plant to wrinkle to know it’s thirsty and time to water.



The pothos is famously known as the “cubicle plant,” able to thrive in less-than-ideal indoor conditions. So if you’re looking for something to grace the desk in your musty little corner, Pothos is perfect for you. This easy-going plant is meant to spread out and be magnificent.

Its trailing vines can grow to over 10 feet long indoors, making any space look more lush. It thrives in medium light, can tolerate bright, indirect, and low light—but keep it out of harsh direct sun. 

Water it every one to two weeks, or when the soil dries out completely and remember to increase frequency if it is exposed to more light.



A ZZ plant is actually considered a succulent, which makes it low-light tolerant, drought tolerant, and low-maintenance in general.

Having evolved in dry conditions, these plants have developed rhizomes that store water to help them survive droughts in their natural environment. The ZZ plant thrives in medium-to-low indirect light, but it can tolerate bright indirect light. It is not suited for intense, direct sun.

ZZ only needs to be watered every three to four weeks – only increasing frequency with increased light.




With its heart-shaped green leaves, easygoing nature and quick-growing trailing vines, the philodendron is one of our favourite houseplants! 

Like the pothos, this plant’s trailing vines can grow over 10 feet long, making it the perfect plant for a high shelf or hanging planter.

It’s reputation for being among the easiest of houseplants to grow is not just for during the fall, but for any time of year thanks to the fact that it thrives in medium indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light. 

When to water a philodendron you may ask? Wilting vines, curling leaves, and dry potting mix are signs it may be thirsty.
