Really, I share a strange relationship with...umm...my Indoor Plants. Let me say it is stressful at times, but thriving at times. I wouldn't say I like too much of it, nor too little. Not to mention, if we maintain balance, keep going on water and sunshine, they and I will be evergreen. Ha! The point being, houseplants don't need to be sparse and tiny, but in a small apartment, they might want to be.
