No expert on house plants, but I have enjoyed growing many varieties over the years. I have a few faves I talk about, plus a few stories to share.
Some plants I never thought I would like until I tried them in my own home. Now I can't do without them!
I don't talk to my plants (maybe I should), but I do care about them enough to give them enough light and water to be happy. I also have sense enough to NOT buy the plants that are just not going to work for me. That's a form of kindness, too, IMO :)
If you don't have house plants now, I am hoping my encouragement will help you give them a try. They are worth it!
