    1) I must like it
    2) must do well in warm environments
    3) must have space for it.
    4) nothing expensive until I prove myself at this hobby
    5) fragrance must not make me sneeze. They generally don't but have smelled a couple that I'm apparently allergic to.

    If it is a plant I like, for whatever reason, criteria for me to make a purchase are:

    1. Can I meet its cultural requirements?
    2. Do I have room for it?
