Are you considering listing your home as "For Sale By Owner?" While this may be the right move for some homeowners, it's certainly not the best decision for everyone.

Indoor plants are a great way to add balance and style to your home decor. While they’re especially trendy in home decor at the moment, indoor plants really never go out of style. They’re also relatively inexpensive. Plus, they can last all year long unlike your outdoor plants. So if your green thumb is aching for spring this winter, try your hand at some indoor gardening.
Choose a Low Maintenance Plant
If you’re new to taking care of an indoor plant, you want to choose one that isn’t too difficult to care for. The good news is that there are a lot of beautiful indoor plants that don’t require a lot of work. According to HGTV and Lauren Conrad, some good options for beginners are Aloe, Ivy, Snake Plants, Jade, Rubber Plants, Fiddle Leaf trees and Dieffenbachia.
Find the Perfect Spot
Indoor plants need direct or indirect sunlight. According to Lauren Conrad, that means indoor plants should be placed by a window that lets in a lot of natural light. South-facing windows are actually ideal because they let in the most light throughout the day. North-facing windows let in the least light, while East and West-facing windows aren’t the best either because they don’t get as much continuous light.
Give it Some TLC
Once you’ve chosen your plant and found the perfect spot, the real trick is keeping it alive. Knowing how much water to give your indoor plant can be tough. While it might seem like you can’t give your plant too much water, it’s actually a very common cause of indoor plant loss. How do you know if your plant needs water? Stick your finger about an inch or two into the soil. If it’s dry, it needs water. Most plants need water about every three to four days. What about fertilizer? Indoor plants don’t need it.
