Growing plants indoors is a bit like raising pet fish. While a collection of exotic tropical specimens can be a real challenge to care for, almost anyone can keep a bowl of goldfish alive indefinitely. Here, then, are the goldfish of the indoor plant world ― 10 house plants that Sunset's garden staff, professional growers, and interior plantscapers have found to be easy to grow and forgiving, should you miss a watering. Of course, the more attentive you are to their basic needs, the more rewarding they'll be to have around.

The plants we list should be given a generous container filled with a rich, all-purpose potting soil that provides good drainage. Water often enough to keep the soil evenly moist. Feed monthly with a complete houseplant fertilizer, following label instructions. Clip off dead foliage. Every couple of months, set the plant in the shower and spray the foliage with tepid water to wash off dust. Repot plants with fresh soil every two or three years, unless noted.

Like any other creature, squirrel populations rise and fall in response to conditions. Water, territory, habitat and disease are just a few factors. Most of these are out of the control of the individual gardener. We often like the same foods, and our territories overlap, so this is where the friction is felt.
Luring squirrels out of our areas is problematic for two reasons: the first is that they are often impacted for territory by the time we notice their damage, so the likelihood that no neighboring squirrels move in is small. The original tenant will probably return because it won't find vacancies nearby
