Dorm Room Approved Plants

Blaire Benson

We all know someone with a loved one headed to college this time of year. Living in a dorm room is one of the most exciting parts of the college experience for most students. We, of course, think one of the best ways to make any dorm room feel a little more like home is to add plants! Here are a few that are sure to be great for small spaces and busy students alike.

1.     Money Tree (Pachira aquatic)

Money trees grow best in medium to bright indoor light and moist soil. While they don’t grow money (every college student’s dream), they are sure to add an air of sophistication and life to any space.

2.     Bamboo Plant (Lucky Bamboo – Dracaena braunii)

Bamboo prefers light to medium light and no direct sunlight. Water every few days or grow it in a water-filled pot/vase and then sit back and enjoy the energy and beauty it provides.

3.     Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum)

Peace lilies love light—the more the better, just no direct sun. Keep the soil moist. The Peace Lily will not only provide a fresh aesthetic, but will also work hard to purify your air.
