Many houseplants are chosen for their preference of shade, but if you have an indoor suntrap, it's well worth picking some choice plants that will enjoy basking in the rays.
Be mindful that, while the plants we've picked enjoy sun, they may need some regular watering in summer. As a rule of thumb, let the pot dry out between watering, and never let plants stand in water, as this can lead to root rot.
When choosing pots and containers, go for terracotta, cement or clay. These porous materials will help ensure the compost doesn't remain moist for too long. Make sure the pot has drainage holes, too.
If you're seeking unusual cacti and succulent hybrids, seek out plant fairs or specialist nurseries that sell hybrids online.
