Guide to Indoor Plants – Enjoy the Beauty of Nature in Your Home

I am a gardener by nature.  As far back as I can remember, I’ve loved to dig in the dirt and tend to plants.  Now that I live in North Carolina, much of my gardening is done outdoors. But since I was born in Maine (and gardening outdoors there has a limited season,) I started with indoor plants. And each winter, even here in the Southern part of the U.S. many of my plants come indoors to be cared for during the winter months in warmer conditions.

This guide to indoor plants will help you choose the type of plants that will do well indoors, and will give you tips on growing and caring for plants indoors.  There are also lots of articles about plant propagation (ie. getting plants for FREE!) and ideas for containers for indoor plants. The guide grows month by month here on my blog, so be sure to check back in a few months to see more articles about growing plants indoors.This Indoor Plant Guide gives you tons of information for choosing, growing, propagating and displaying your indoor plants.

Indoor plants bring a sense of the outside and can really change the look of a room. The plants don’t just look lovely in a room, they actually relieve stress, and some can even remove pollutants from a room.  

Growing plants indoors is not a relatively new trend.  They have been grown in homes from Victorian times when Aspidistra plants were so commonly seen, because they required so little care.

Choosing the right plant is only the first step towards caring for your indoor plants. Once you have decided on WHAT you want to grow indoors, you will need to know how to care for it. Gardening is a hobby that grows over time.  You will progress from mundane tasks like pruning, watering, and fertilizing plants to many other topics.  In time, you will want to know how to start plants from seed, how to take cuttings and other propagating tips.
