  1. By mentioning how to care for these plants, you are helping many people. Great work. Indoor plants are very good for room, office and best option to gift.

  2. I love Spider plants, they are the only indoor one that I can seem to grow, maybe its because it doesn’t need alot of looking after, I forget to water them ????
