A houseplant is any kind of decorative plant. People grow them indoors, usually in a house, where these plants gets their name.[1]

Since residential or public premises are characterized by conditions not as favorable for plants as when growing them in greenhouses (for example, the lateral direction of light, its small amount, dry air, abundance of dust, drafts, uneven temperature), special techniques are used to achieve a healthy state and proper development of plants. Conditions in public and office premises are usually even less favorable than in residential ones, so the most unpretentious indoor plants are grown here.
