Indoor plants should be an essential component of every interior design. Greenery brightens up indoor spaces and are known to have mood-boosting qualities. Growing indoor plants is an excellent way to beautify your house. Indoor plants don’t only look good in your house but they also help to purify the air.

Common indoor plants are usually tropical or semi-tropical epiphytes, succulents or cacti. Indoor plants need the correct moisture, light levels, soil mixture, temperature, and humidity. Indoor plants also need the proper fertilizer and correct-sized pots.
