Make sure your indoor plants get enough light. Most folks overestimate the available light in their homes. Even low light plants need to be within 6 to 8 feet of a sunny, uncovered window. Most other indoor plants must be within a couple of feet of a sunny window. The window must be uncovered throughout the daylight hours. Before you purchase a plant, evaluate the available light and select a plant based on that. If you have only low light, then you are limited to low light plant species (see Indoor Plant Bulletin No. 9 for a list of low light plants). If you have better light, then your plant options expand. Order a free copy of my Indoor Plant Bulletin No. 3 to help you assess light so you can make better plant choices.
