Living in a white apartment means that green, living plants are necessary for adding color to a bland space. I saw a picture of a succulent plant a few weeks ago & fell in love with its look. I purchased this one from Home Depot shortly after that.
They take minimal water and are somewhat like a cactus. This means - it's difficult to kill; which is important for people, like me, who lack a green thumb. Check out this link (here) for the story of my relationship with plants.
Here are some more images to prove how lovely these quirky plants are. Enjoy!
