Asked by Joe Dirt

Besides a cactus and a gnome, I am looking for easy plants to add life to my home and also help with my indoor air quality.

Amazingly enough, I find orchids very easy to grow and very lovely. Place them near North light. Ficas and Elephant Ear are easy large plants. Jungle plants work well with some misting. If you have an outdoor area, try just rotating your outdoor plants through the house and back out again when they start looking sad.
