If you would like to add the warmth and decorative quality of indoor plants to your home, but are too busy or don't have the information needed to take care of them, this presentation is for you. We will discuss the importance of choosing adaptable houseplants and those that tolerate neglect. Plants that will forgive inconsistent watering and lack of proper lighting, yet reward you with continued growth. The presentation includes suggestions for using plants in small spaces, in low-light areas, and how to group plants to encourage growth and create attractive focal areas in a room.
