Moss and Green Landscape Garden Design and Maintenance
Plants are just as popular as furniture when one is deciding on decor and soft furnishings.
Aside from the intrinsic beauty plants provide your home with, there are also health benefits - research tells us that plants cleanse the air through utilizing the carbon dioxide and producing more oxygen. Here are some tips on how to care for your indoor plants to gain the optimum health and aesthetic benefits.
Most indoor plants need great lighting. You can provide this through daylight in the room of your choice or your other option is electric lighting. Darker leaved plants usually don't need as much light as other varieties. Here's my selection of plants (usually those that only require medium to low light) that are known to be suitable for indoor gardening:
b. Boston ferns
c. African violets
e. Creeping Fig
A common mistake most people make in indoor gardening is they tend to over-water the plants, which may lead to rotting roots. Make sure to research the type of plant you have, because each kind of plant varies on their watering needs.
Choose robust and attractive container for your indoor plants. Make sure that the pot is washed before placing your new plant into it to prevent infection and to encourage vigorous growth.
In indoor gardening, humidity is an important factor. The amount of moisture in the air has an effect on the health of the plants. Once a day, you could spray the plants with water for their much-needed moisture. Make sure the leaves don't get covered in dust.
It's important to remember, fertilizing depends on the type of plant. If you have managed to provide your indoor garden with the right amount of light, water and humidity, fertilization may not need much attention. A good indoor fertilizer can be bought from most many gardening stores such as Woodies DIY . Delicate orchids need a specialist fertilizer.
