It can be slightly daunting when choosing a houseplant, questions you're bound to ask are: "where can I put it?", "is it easy to look after?" or "which room can I put it in?" ... amongst others.
Looking after a houseplant is surprisingly easy, just like any other plant; they need light, water and feed. Indirect sunlight is usually best so a sunny windowsill may not be the best place for them as they might get scorched, however, why not brighten up another part of the room where there's still plenty of light and your plant will thrive! Each plant will come with its own care instructions so you'll soon find the best place to grow yours.
Many plants in the home have the added benefit of actually purifying the air around you. Some chemicals and pollutants that are found in the air can prevent you from relaxing or sleeping and are also harmful to you in the long term. So bringing lots of plants in that will filter these harmful elements whilst at the same time enriching the air with oxygen will actually improve your well being!
