    Water-Indoor plants do not require too much water.But they need to be kept moist at all times.If the soil feels moist,do not water it.
    Substitute for sunlight-You can grow anything if there is enough artificial light .Make sure lighting is not dim.There are variety of lights like incandescent,fluorescent.
    Fertilisers-Organic manure should be given twice a year.
    Plant container-Clay containers allow roots to breathe heavy enough ,but they are fragile.Plastic is light weight but doesn't allow plants to breathe.Hence plants may get too wet.
    Combine light coloured plants with dark ones to create an effect.
    Keep ondoor plants in sun light once a week.
    Attractive plants are when grown on moss stick ,this helps plant to survive well indoors.
