Every plant has its preferences as to light, humidity, soil, etc. These are the first factors to take into consideration before you decide what plants or seeds to buy.
Analyze the space you plan to utilize. Is it a north window? Do you want a spot of green on the mantelpiece? On an occasional table? In the kitchen?
The home you give your plants determines to a great extent which of the many varieties you can use. Some plants need a good deal of direct sunlight, while others will grow and sometimes prosper for years in a spot that is never exposed to direct rays.
The next most important angle for you to evaluate is climate. Is your home generally humid? Dry? Do you live in a warm moist area, or is the air in your house cool and dry?’
Never fear, wherever you are and whatever the conditions, there are plants which, given the proper care, will prosper under your green thumb.
