House Plants
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Not everyone in the world lives in the country. In the city there are not a lot of places to grow plants or have a garden. If you are one of those people, there are other ways to grow things. One way is to grow flowers and plants in pots. This is sometimes called container gardening.
 
2     There are many good things about growing plants in smaller pots. The pots are easy to move around. When the plants have flowers, you can move them into an area where people can see them. If a plant doesn't look healthy, you can move it to another room until it starts to look better.
 
3     Growing plants in pots also brings out the artist in you. There are many different pots that you can buy. You can buy something that is bright and colorful. If you are growing a plain green plant, this can help draw attention to it.
 
4     Or if you are growing a large plant with bright flowers, you can buy a pot that matches the flowers. No matter what you do, the plant and its pot will be something that you made.
