Your garden or office could probably use some more green, and we're not talking about eco-friendly printer paper. If you're not quite the gardening type, Apartment Therapy has a round-up of 15 planting projects that require very little afterthought.
Some of these projects, like the lightbulb terrarium, have seen individual attention on Lifehacker before, but they're all worth a peek. Culled from the space-savvy, home-improving Apartment Therapy blog, the projects don't require constant maintenance, landscaping weekends to make room, or monitoring of soil consistency and all that jazz. Most don't even require access to ground-level dirt — the shoe pocket garden, for instance, makes clever use of the classic vertical footwear organizer.
Looking to improve your indoor space with more traditional planting? Check out our own roundup of five hard-to-kill houseplants, and a previous post pointing to three plants that give you better indoor air.
