Choosing A Common House Plant
Most people choose a commonly known house plant because they are sold in many stores and easy to obtain. Many of them are also easy to maintain, with minimal amount of caring to be done.
Some of the above do need more care and attention than others - so I would advise anyone to find out if a plant is suitable for the home first, and ask themselves if they have the time and conditions to look after it.
For the beginner it's wise to buy something that is easy to care for and survives any type of neglect.
They will soon know if they enjoy growing plants in the home and can move on to other types.
