Tough Plants

Houseplants can make any room feel alive, warm and inviting. They add color and form to a room and clean the air in any home. But it's disappointing when those healthy houseplants we bring home start to deteriorate and die. However, with the proper selection, anyone can have a thriving indoor garden. The key is to pick "tough" houseplants. The following list of plants thrive and even prefer some neglect, overwatering, underwatering, poor light conditions.... you name it, they'll survive it.
