      Indoor plant shopping tips
    • Before you make any purchases, visit your closest Stodels and have a look at indoor plant displays. Keep layout and available choice in mind when planning your indoor plant selection. You should find a host of cheerful palms, orchids, cyclamens, anthuriums, monsteras, African violets and more.
    • Choose the correct plants for the light conditions in your home.
    • Don’t be scared to mix an array of forms, colours and textures – group together in the garden centre to judge whether they look good together.
