Norfolk Island pine does well when it is provided with enough light and humidity. In the absence of these two conditions, the plant can be attacked by spider mites. Apart from its decorative purpose all year round, this plant can also be used as a Christmas tree during the holiday seasons. It hardly ever grows to more than 10 feet tall and 5 feet wide. This plant is ideal for a room that needs an imposing plant.

Red-edge peperomia is a low-maintenance plant that does not need to be watered frequently. It is wise to let the water on the plant soil's surface dry before more water is added. This plant has a red edge surrounding waxy and colorful foliage. The plant is ideal for a small room that needs a pop of color because it has brilliant colors and requires little space.
