eisnerl,

Welcome to All Things Plants!

What kind of information are you looking for regarding indoor plants? We have a forum for houseplants/indoor plants where members post information about the plants they grow indoors. http://garden.org/forums/view/...

If you can be more specific about what information you are looking for I know someone will be able to offer advice.

Welcome, eisnerl!

A picture of a sick plant seems to get the most vigorous replies, as if people want to rush to help that poor plant get better. Also the name or type of plant is likely to draw out a crowd of people who love those kinds of plants.

Welcome! eisnerl

Your question could cover thousands of plants, so you'll have to help us out here. Pictures of plants/problems would certainly be helpful as well as specific plants. Your growing conditions are a must if you want advice on growing houseplants. Did you know that most people don't think they can grow tropical plants, yet 90% of houseplants are tropical plants? For some reason, the very words "tropical plant" makes many people think there is something really special when growing them.

Hi & welcome!

You can search the database here for plants designated as "houseplants." They are known to be able to do well in most indoor environments, in a pot.

To search specific attributes, click on plant database, search by all characteristics, about halfway down the page is a section called "suitable locations." "Houseplant" is one of those. Then click the search button at the bottom of the page. The database is constantly being edited, added-to, but a search just now yielded 316 results.

Also location is important as what is a houseplant for you in Pennsy may well grow out of doors for those in the south and southwest.
