There are many benefits derived from growing plants inside your home or office. The most significant benefit comes from the fact that houseplants increase the oxygen content of the air we breathe while indoors. Plants breathe in the carbon dioxide we humans exhale, and then exhale the oxygen we then breathe in.

Whether you are just getting into growing houseplants, or you're one who hasn't had much past success growing houseplants, here's a short list of the Top 10 easiest-to-grow houseplants that can get you started and/or increase your sucess!
