The tip? Fill your tiny apartment with houseplants. Mostly small ones.
My very first apartment tip was to use tiny pots. I still hold to this mostly, but I think it's worth saying that tiny pots are hard to sustain. Plants, like humans, eventually need a little leg room and they're not likely to last very long in very tiny pots, adorable though they are. So I make a compromise and choose small over tiny.
For me the trick is to stash green things in places where they're not in the way but where they can still work hard. A bathroom shelf, a windowsill, suspended from the shower rod...
Lately, I've been drawn to plants that come in soft hues potted up in white pots. Too many colors in a small space and I begin to feel claustrophobic. Instead, I prefer to let the plants themselves shine and to choose a neutral pot to ensure that happens. My latest love? The hardy blue fern.
