Q.Apartment friendly, gnat-resistant plants
Thanks for this useful website! I’m a NYC apartment dweller and sadly all my plants (from ferns to peace lily) attract biting gnats. It’s bugging me (haha) to not enjoy any greenery at home! Any suggestions for pest-resistant and low-maintenance plants? Many thanks in advance!

As an apartment-dweller there's no reason you can't enjoy a wide variety of bug-free houseplants. The bugs take up residence in the soil, so the type of plant has little to no bearing on whether or not the bugs (gnats, for the most part) show up and in fact there really aren't any "pest-resistant" houseplants.
These articles may help you keep the bugs away and give you some ideas on low-maintenance yet beautiful plants for your apartment:
