Perfect Plants for Dorm Rooms & Beginner Green Thumbs

The Daily Green

Plants are well known for their de-stressing and air-purifiing abilities — both pretty nice pluses when it comes to dorm living. Plus, they just look nice. If you'd like to have a plant or two, but aren't sure what can survive in a cramped space with one window, check out this list from the Daily Green.

The list includes common standbys like cactus, as well as more exotic choices, like Dwarf Lemon Trees and African Violets. And almost every plant on the list has a use beyond beauty, from culinary to medicinal. While the list is aimed at dorm living, it's also great for beginning gardeners, especially those who live in tiny spaces.

See the full list and explanations on what makes each plant a good choice at The Daily Green.
