Rental homes can also be decorated with such indoor plants as they can be easily shifted from one place to another because of their size and adaptability with other environments.

€ Place the plant in bright corners, and do not forget to keep them away from extreme heat during the summers.
€ Some plants grow better by location. The hollies, azaleas and ivy grow if they are located to the north. Instead, daisies, geraniums and dahlias grow beautifully when situated towards the south.
