It prefers bright light but not direct sunlight. Spider mites can become an issue with the plant so inspect them often.
The Ficus plant is a favourite among indoor gardeners. A healthy plant has deep green coloured leaves and the stem will develop a braid form. What this means is four or more stems become intertwined and grow in a braided fashion. It is a fascinating and unique look. Regular watering will keep the leaves from drooping and falling off. The Ficus tree can be from 2 to 4 feet in height. The Ficus will do its best under indirect light.
If you lack experience growing houseplants the Chinese evergreen is a plant you may want to try first. It is easy to grow and resistant to many diseases. The plant can be successfully grown in temperatures above 45 degrees. The potting soil should be mildly dry before watering. Not a big plant, it will grow from 18 inches to 3 feet. Great plant for young children to grow and learn from.
This is a unique looking houseplant that makes a great addition to your home decor. The trunk can be described as swollen. The plant leaves can reach a length of 6 feet and look as if they have whipped out of the plant. Like a camel – the plant can store water in its trunk for a few months up to a year. The Pony Tail Palm will do fine with light watering.
The moth orchid is a beautiful plant to keep in your home. Not only that it is one of the best at purifying the air. The petals are white with small stripes of fuchsia. The plant prefers indirect sunlight. The buds of the moth orchid bloom from spring to fall, and they are known to stay in bloom up to 3 months at a time

It has thick canes topped with broad green foliage with yellow stripes in the centre of the leaves. They come in heights ranging from 3′ to 10′. The Mass Cane is consistently a favourite with customers as well as with their care givers.
Also known as a ZZ plant, is a rich glossy green leaved plant that can thrive in very low light conditions. The ZZ has a bushy low growth habit and puts off leaf spikes. Like a succulent this plant makes a great focal piece for conversation and requires very little water.
Known by some as Devil’s Ivy or Pothos, this plant is commonly confused with a philodendron. Like the philodendron, Pothos come in many different left colours, sizes and thicknesses. Unlike philodendrons, Pothos leaves are always heart-shaped. The foliage colour ranges from silver to solid green to green with white or golden specs. This is the plant that you will invariably see rooting in water on desks possibly even in your own office.
Dracaena deremensis ‘Janet Craig’ – The JC, like the Mass Cane, is in the Dracaena family. This plant comes in several shapes and sizes from a desk top size to a 3′ bush to a cane form that grows to about 6′. The JC has the same leave shape as the mass cane but has solid green broad leaves. This is a great choice for low to medium light conditions.
The Rhapis Palm is also known as the Broadleaf Lady Palm. It is one of the few palms that will tolerate lower light conditions. It is a very elegant palm that is slow growing and is cultivated largely in Hawaii. They are bushy with palmate dark green leaves that resemble a human palm and fingers. These range in size from 3′ to more than 10′ in height.
