How to Grow Houseplants - Indoor Plant Care

Houseplants brighten up your home or office. Caring for indoor plants, makes for a great hobby during long, inclement winter month, and even throughout the year. Growing houseplants is rather easy. Many gardeners refuse to twiddle their green thumbs, for months on end, as winter keeps them indoors. Rather, we actively extend our gardening pleasure through the winter months, tending to a wide array of indoor plants.

The benefits of indoor gardening are numerous. My son reminds me of the clean air provided by indoor plants that take in carbon dioxide (which you exhale) and in turn release oxygen for you. Indoor plants also brighten the room, providing a cheerful sight for those grey and often dreary winter days.

Indoor plants are an important part of decor in homes, offices and other buildings. I am sure you will agree, that plastic indoor plants and shrubbery, are no substitute for the real thing. Another big benefit of indoor gardening, is there is nothing more relaxing than gardening.

People grow all sorts of plants indoors. There's common houseplants and tropical houseplants. Many plants in your outdoor garden, make for good indoor houseplants, too. Start planning early, to identify what plants you want to bring indoors when fall arrives. When in doubt, we urge you to experiment and see if you can grow a particular plant indoors. The challenge is half the fun of gardening.

If frost is expected any time soon in your area, get moving and start planning your indoor garden today!
