Choose plants according to your experience 

First of all, you should choose plants according to your experience. For instance, if you are a beginner you should choose plants that are suitable for beginners. Of course, you should order the seeds or shoots online. “Good houseplants for beginners are spider plants, golden pothos vine plants, aloe plants, snake plants and ZZ Plants,” Morganthaler says.

If you want plants that can provide you food you can opt for carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, radishes and tomatoes. Not only are they easy to grow, but you can eat them as well. You can take into consideration the soil type, sunlight and the regular temperatures in your area. 

But if you do not have a garden, you can opt for indoor plants. This activity will keep you occupied during the coronavirus quarantine. Yet, plants can beautify every space and room in your house. 

“Indoor plants are an easy way to add color, texture, and dimension to a space,” says Erin Marino, director of brand marketing at The Sill. “Checking in on my houseplants is my form of weekly meditation,” Marino says. “It feels great to disconnect from a screen, be it my computer, phone or TV — and reconnect with nature. Indoor plants are generally sized by the diameter of their nursery grow pot. A ‘4-inch snake plant’ isn’t a snake plant that’s 4 inches tall, but a snake plant that comes in a 4-inch-wide grow pot.”

And if you are looking for inspiration, here are some amazing plants that are perfect for your yard.
