Alright folks, I'm about to move into a new place in the city, and I'm giddy with decorating power. I'm debating between two flats at the moment, but both are 1 bedrooms with a nice amount of space, top floor, corner units. One faces SE and will get pretty hot and warm in the summer, but gets sun all day long. The other faces SW and sees a nice, moderate amount of sun throughout the day, especially in the morning. What I am looking for is a myriad of suggestions for various house plants, small indoor trees, flowering plants, etc... what do you have in your place? Why do you like it? If I've never owned plants before, how likely is it that I'll be convicted of horticide?
I'd like a nice variety, and green throughout my place. If you had infinite money (hah!) and expansive sunny rooms, what would your (indoor, potted) garden grow?
