Houseplants are amazing. They can add color, life and fresh air to any room of your home. Put the wrong plant in the wrong place, though, and you could soon find it dying. How are you supposed to know what houseplants will thrive in what rooms?

These little potted plants are meant to be easy to care for. Once you get some experience, though, you’ll find they all have different needs and it can be difficult to pick the right one.

For example, how can you keep a “weeping fig” (Ficus benjamina) happy? Well, it likes to bask in direct sunlight and to drink lots of water. Keep it in a sunny spot in your bedroom, and you will remember to water it in the morning and last thing at night. It will repay you by removing toxins from the air and helping you to a good night’s sleep.

Your hallway might often get forgotten. It’s a good idea to put an easy-to-care-for plant there that will survive all that coming and going. For example, a jade plant (Crassula ovate) needs very little care and will be a sturdy companion over the years, and a symbol of good luck to all who enter.

Our new infographic has nine great suggestions as to which houseplants will work well in each room of your home.

Add a touch of life with a houseplant, and you’ll find your home will become a more peaceful, inspiring place to be.
