The addition of house plants around your home will enhance it visually and serve a practical purpose depending on exactly where they are situated. The onus is on you, though, to look after your house plants so that they continue to flourish, as failing to take care of them will see them fall away to nothingness.

This info-graphic from EZ Living Interiors features some of the most ideal house plants for individual rooms throughout your home and gives some great pointers on how to look after them so that they will not die. The appearance of a plant is just one of the factors to consider when making your purchase. The type of plant you choose can also be influenced by its air filtering qualities and emission of oxygen, for instance.

When it comes to caring for your house plants, there is no ‘one-fits-all’ solution. The provision of light and water will depend on the characteristics of the plant, while it’s important not to go overboard on the light exposure or water content. Direct exposure to sunlight can harm many plant types, but some degree of light is usually essential. Likewise, it’s vital to keep plants watered but be careful not to overdo it as this could end up damaging the plant permanently.
