Houseplants: Their Selection, Care and Impact on Our Lives
 
Houseplants: Their Selection, Care and Impact on Our Lives
Houseplants have been a documented part of human existence since the days of the Egyptian Pharaohs. Nature did not create houseplants; humanity did. We have taken plants that were thriving in nature and brought them indoors to be a part of our lives, with widely varying degrees of success. The main challenges of growing plants indoors were low humidity, drafty construction, poor or no centralized heating, and poor light conditions.
