How do we choose plants for our living room?



Hello, recently I shifted to a new house and purchased a few indoor plants like areca palm, zz plant, and ficus plant. I am trying to figure out where to keep them. I read indoor plants need humidity and low light. So, I kept them in a corner of my room where filtered lights fall and I water them every alternate day.

Different plants need different conditions, they don't all want low light, and lots can grow in the humidity of ordinary living rooms/kitchens/bathrooms.
I agree with Seaburngirl, look each one up on the computer or in a book. I prefer books myself.

I wouldn't water them every alternate day. They only need water when they need it, not every other day whether they need it or not.
