House Plants

House plants make our homes feel healthy and alive. Keeping house plants indoors provides us with oxygen, cleaner air and peaceful quite company. While we enjoy their presence, it is also our responsibility to ensure that our homes provide the right kind of habitat to the house plants, especially tropical house plants. Tropical house plants are often native to places where growing conditions are very different than the conditions inside a house. Therefore, it is important to research what the individual needs of the house plants are.
