The most important thing to remember when you want to begin an indoor garden is that you purchase the right kind of plant and / or plants. This article will introduce you to several kinds of plants for indoor gardens, making your garden easier to maintain, and definitely more beautiful to observe.
There are many great ideas for indoor plants – you just have to know what you are looking for. I will help you out.
Sometimes you do not have outdoor space for a garden but desperately want one nonetheless. Or, perhaps you already have a beautiful outdoor garden and because you enjoy the ambiance so much you want to be able to enjoy it all year-round.
In addition, you can impress your friends and family members and any other guests with the distinct and decorative look of an indoor garden in your home.
Whether you want to transform the overall look of your home, whether you simply have no space outdoors, or whether you just want to enjoy the ambiance of garden foliage all year round, you need to find the very best plants. If you want a low maintenance plant and /or plants, here are some great ideas:
The Bromeliad is a beautiful plant with a bright, fragrant bloom that lasts longer than the blossoming period of a typical plant, whether the plant is indoors or whether it Is outdoors.
It will easily enhance the overall décor and ambiance of your home – you will immediately be able to see the difference an indoor garden can make.
The Pothos is a very popular indoor garden plant. It is also referred to as Epiremnum aureum, Phothos aureus, Raphidorphora aureum, or Scindaspus aureus. The name of this plant changes all the time – even among the scientific community. Nonetheless, all terms refer to the same, lovely, indoor home plant.
They are very interesting plants, featuring golden yellow to white shades. They are heart-shaped vine (ivy-like) leaves that flourish beautifully and require very little maintenance.
Another great example of a low maintenance indoor plant is the spider plant. A friend of mine has one of these (who, I must mention, has a real knack for killing plants) and I can testify that they are very difficult to kill.
A spider plant makes great house-warming gift for a friend or family member. The spider plant likes to have medium sunlight – which is simple to achieve – even when there is very little direct sunlight that comes through your windows.
The snake plant is another great example of easy maintenance indoor gardening plant. The only real problem that most people with snake plants face is death by over watering. That makes it nice. You don’t have to remember to water as often as you would with other kinds of plants.
The snake plant has very low light requirements than many other plants indoors and outdoors – therefore, it is suitable for virtually any indoor environment.
Of course, there are other indoor plants that require just a bit more care than those I mentioned above. These are for people who want to improve their indoor gardens and are willing to push just a little more effort.
These are plants such as the Sword Fern, the Dragon Tree, or the Jade plant. It all depends on the plants that best suit your personal taste.
