There are endless advantages to having plants indoors. But, if you can’t keep plants in all year, many plants can transition from the indoors to the outdoors and back. The biggest problem will be deciding on which plant or plants to get.

Picking Your Plants

You want to choose a plant that looks nice and adds to the beauty of your home or office. You still need to be careful and think about a few things before you choose any plants.

  • Find plants that appeal to you. Pick something that smells good to you or looks nice or blooms in your favorite color. If you choose something that doesn’t appeal to you, that plant will likely not last long.
  • Check the Area- If you are looking for a plant that can transition well from outdoors to indoors, be sure to know your area. What works in one region of the U.S. won’t always work in the next.
  • Choose plants you can easily maintain. Most people aren’t likely to stick with a plant that needs a lot of care. Find something that needs a minimum of care.
  • Know the plant you choose. Be sure you know what your plant needs. Don’t place plants that need shade in direct sunlight. Don’t place plants that need a little cold next to a heater.

Above all, you want your plant to last. You want it to continue to bring beauty and health to your home or office. Be careful, choose wisely and take care of it. It’s simple when you choose wisely.


Here are a few examples for indoor potted plants:

  • Atyhyrums – Beautiful colorful plants like Lady in Red add some color and bring some extra air to any ho-hum office.
  • Lavender- Lavender varieties not only add color but some relaxing fragrance too.
  • Sedum – Sedum plants have hardy leaves with delightful colors that are easy to care for and beautiful to look at.
