    My botanical knowledge is like that of a 5 year-old, so go easy on me.

    I want to grace our home with live potted plants for the following purposes:
    1. Aesthetics
    2. To improve indoor air quality

    My personal requirements:
    1. Low maintenance - It should live with just artificial indoor ambient lighting (LEDs) 95% of the time, with maybe very little indirect sunlight during the morning
    2. It shouldn't grow too big - 3-4 feet tall maximum for the living room, a foot or two for the toilet, and maybe 2-3 feet for the bedroom. (Not particularly sure on these figures so I'm open to suggestions)
    3. Can coexist with pets - We have a pet dog loose in the house and I definitely don't want a plant that's in any way toxic to canines. On the other end of the spectrum, I also don't want a plant that's known to be edible to canines (if there's such a thing exists), for obvious reasons

    Where is the go-to place for buying indoor plants?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Check your local gardener. They may have a few good suggestions.

    Chlorophytum comosum = Spider plant
    Chamaedorea = bamboo palm(not kawayan)

    We used to have palmera plants in our living room. It doesn't grow too tall, maybe 4 feet.

    bamboo. the small variety. low maintenance ang bamboo.
    but be ready to sun them outside on a regular basis. all plants need sunlight.

    Pinakamadali alagaan aloe vera. Water or better use yung spray water (gingamit sa parlor) pag tuyo na at konting konti tubig lang. Paarawan mo pero partial shade para hind manilaw yung leaves.

    Pero important yung lupa +compost. Ratio advantage dapat sa compost 3:1 or 2:1. Wag gagamit ng pure lupa kasi putik kakalabasan. Hind rin pwede pure compost dahil hindi kakapit ugat.

    Basta wag mo maoverwater ang indoor plants. Jan namamatay yan sa sobrang tubig. Better to deadma (once a week or once in two weeks depends sa init or lamig ng panahon. Touch mo soil kung dapat tubigan)

    Maganda sa aloe vera eh nakakalinis na ng hangin at pwede mo pa magamit pampakinis ng mukha. Never use synthetic fertilizer. The best fertilizer taeh ng bulate. (vermicompost)

    I like how the money tree (Pachira Aquatica) looks. Not sure where to get them though.
