With good colour sense and imagination potted indoor plants could add marvel while decorating your interiors. Plants like anthurium , begonia and African violets are best suited for your rooms. Bonsai’s are also a good option.
But if you are a person, who doesn’t have time to water then its best to opt for plants like Christmas cactus or cast iron plant. You can add colour to your home by planting roses and tulips though it requires more effort. Experiment is the mantra for designing your interior green. Try growing all the plants of your choice and see what all succeeds.
People generally feel that keeping the indoor plants near a window where sunlight reaches maximum helps the plant to grow healthy. This isn’t true as the plant is prone to more light during the day and affected by chill at night.
Indoor plants are usually plants that thrive in shady climate, so place the pot at a place where it is subjected to only moderate sun and cold. Bulb lights could help in the plants growth during snowy days. Connect the source of light near the plants or the place where you have sawn the seeds.
Another important step in maintaining an indoor plant is watering. Plants need water for growth but only on a moderate level. The pot must contain proper filter to drain out excess water as excess water could decay the roots.
Never use polluted water for indoor gardening. It is always recommended to spray water on the base of plants rather than pumping forcefully. Agriculturists say no no to watering plants at night.
Since indoor plants have shunned growth, the nutritional requirements of these plants are low. Just like you change the water in an aquarium every day, change the soil of your potted plants once in a while and take care that you are shifting the plants from small pots to bigger ones as their growth progresses.
