Plants are a beautiful addition to a home or apartment because they bring the outside indoors. For those who are able to keep them alive for significant lengths of time, they are almost like part of the family. What might not come as a surprise to most plant-lovers is the differing climates plants need to survive. No plants are created equal and each one requires different temperature, attention, and amounts of water to truly live.

Books hold a wealth of knowledge and entertainment for those who are willing to read them, but all of that enjoyment can get heavy when it is time to move.
