Houseplants come in many shapes and sizes, from the tiniest cacti to mammoth species that dominate their space. These large-leaved varieties, well placed, can make a fine addition to a living room, dining area or conservatory.
Many are native to tropical rainforests and therefore require similar conditions indoors i.e. plenty of light (but not direct sunlight) and high humidity. These conditions can easily be created in the bathroom or kitchen, but in other areas you may need to maintain humidity by misting the leaves or sitting the pot in a tray of moist pebbles.
