When we fall in love with a plant and take it home, we may don’t realize that’s not the condition the plant wants. And you may think there are dozens of succulents you can thrive on your bacony. Try to work out the species of plants you can thrive in your house. Most experts point out species like aglaonema, dracaena, ferns, philodendrons are easy to adapt and care for as indoor plants. Additionally, it is better to focus on shade-loving and shade-tolerant plants since your indoor garden has a lower temperature and less sun exposure.
Find the Right Light
The winter is the shorter days of the year with fewer numbers of hours of daylight, while the light levels near your window drop up to 50%. When creating an indoor garden in your house, find what spot in your home works photosynthesis best. Light is the No.1 element for plants. Try to move plants closer to windows, balcony, roof if possible. Different species come from different area require different lighting conditions and angles of sun exposure. Place light-loving species such as succulents, cacti or begonias in the sunniest spot, and keep plants that are from more shaded regions to supplement light levels. Houseplants like Areca palm, peace lily, philodendron are all good selections to put into your indoor garden.
Take Care of Your Plants
In winter, most houseplants prefer 40%-50% humidity but homes offer that of 5%-10%. And almost 95% of houseplants suffer from overwatering, while the freezing and drying earth affect the plants. When you look after your plants, it is important to provide enough care to them by watering your plants in a sensible amount, and increasing the ambient humidity around your plants. You can arrange your plants in groups, spritz your plants daily, or if, place a humidity tray underneath your houseplants to increase the relative humidity. When you do water, avoid watering too much at once and never sit your plant overnight in a water-logged container or pot.
Take care of your indoor garden like a little girl. Just like a human being, a plant would grow up better in a more comfortable environment with nice sun, enough water, healthy food, and relative temperature. These are other elements your plants need to thrive. Avoid placing plants near cold drafts and keep away from exterior windows. Shift plants to the appropriate locations near brighter windows, at the same time, make them get natural, indirect light throughout the day. The secret to taking care of your indoor garden is adjusting care routines to suit winter living conditions.
Style Your Indoor Garden
Once your plants have grown you can group and arrange them to create a cohesive indoor garden. Cluster together species on shelves with different widths and heights, trim dead leaves off branches, this makes it looks more uniform than that of a whole lot of messes. Next, move on to playing off the colors, arrange large plants in colorful containers to add interest and character in any room. Also, remember to place sun-loving plants and shade-loving plants in the different area or height, use a ladder plant stand in the middle for sun-loving plants, and 2 tower shelves on each side. Style succulents on wooden racks with similar finishes and shapes to make these green displays like a set. Place a vine plant that grows upwardly, a variegated string of leaves, and a tall plant with billowing branches for appeal and texture with a touch of chic.
