Choosing an Indoor Houseplant

When you are choosing a house plant you need to go beyond the appearance of the plant
although that is a good place to start. If there is a certain kind of plant that you want to
have look into the care instructions first. Some plants need more care and others are best
left to an expert gardener as opposed to a novice one. If you fall into the latter category
of gardeners you will want plants that are easy to care for, are hardy, and have a low
maintenance schedule.

Ferns are a popular choice for indoor gardens as they are easy to care for, do not require
to be repotted very often and are attractive. There is a wide range of fern varieties
available and each one has a unique look. Some of the different ferns great for
houseplants are:

* Maidenhair Ferns
* Davallias
* Fishbone Ferns
* Cretan Brake Ferns

Begonias are a great choice for the indoors too especially if you do not have a great light
source. This plant can survive on very little light each day. Some will flower indoors but
the leaves are beautiful on their own too. They also donít mind cooler temperatures
either, but it should not get colder than 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius). A few
the begonia varieties available:

* Rex Begonias
* Iron Cross Begonias
* Begonia Masoniana

The fern and begonia arenít the only breeds of houseplant that will survive even the
newest of green thumbs. Here is list of different kinds of plants you can try too:

* Spider Plants
* Devilís Ivy
* Cast Iron Plants
* Chinese Evergreen

Once you have a few plants in your indoor garden and are comfortable with the care
required, you will have the skill and confidence needed to take care of a higher-needs
variety.
