So I was recently asked, what the best window plant to have in a college dorm is. In all honesty, I think it has to be something pretty and low maintenance. For example, some good plants would be..
a cactus- It is possible to get a non prickly version. These don’t have to be watered often and love the sun, definitely a good plant for a college kid.
an orchid- Perfect for someone who likes flowers, they are low maintenance, need bright but indirect sunlight, and only need water every few days.
an aloe vera plant- Fun fact, the sap of the aloe vera plant is good for burns. So if you are just learning how to cook, this window plant might be a perfect choice for you. Care is similar to that of an orchid.
a bonsai tree- These are tiny little trees that need indirect sun light and a small amount of water every two or three days. They are easy to care for and really cute!
or a bamboo- Probably needs the most water out of all the plants listed above, it is best to keep the roots soaked at least 75% of the time. The one downside to bamboo is that it can get really really big!!
Hope that helps narrow down the decision!! Additionally, in the Embry Riddle Prescott dorms, plants are more than welcome 🙂
