A busy housewife often dreams of growing a garden of indoor plants in her apartment - this is not only beautiful, but also useful, because plants play a cosmic role in the conditions of the planet, releasing oxygen and absorbing carbon dioxide. But how to do this if you have to stay outside the apartment all day?
To do this, you can grow unpretentious and shade-loving plants on the window sills - they do not have to create special conditions, and during the day to transfer from the window sill and back to protect from harmful direct UV light. The following is a list of the most simple in the cultivation of domestic flowers, which differ among themselves in properties, characteristics in cultivation, as well as in appearance.
The most unpretentious indoor plants with a photo and name
To begin with, you should list the most unpretentious indoor flowers - this will help in the choice of both busy housewives and novice gardeners who refuse to grow themselves, believing that they lack knowledge.
1. Dracaena. These unpretentious in the care of flowers in pots can be found in every office and even medical institutions. Such dragonflies enjoy such popularity due to their exotic look and at the same time unpretentiousness in dwelling and care.
Preference should be given only to two varieties - Edged and Dracoce Draco. They can be kept in shaded places, for example, on shelves or in the room. Watering will have no more than once a week, spray even less. Additional actions in the care do not require - transplantation is carried out as they grow, but not more than once a year.
2. Sansevieria. This plant is “training” when it intends to grow an orange tree or an orchid at home. Sansevieria can withstand any weather - sun and shade, dryness and humidity, heat and cold, however, you will have to be careful with the cold (marks below 0 it will not stand). This flower is not prone to flowering, but you can see an armful of flowers, if you keep the plant pot on the south side.
Caring for sansevieriya minimal - watering once a week, you can do without spraying (at best, provide once a week in hot weather), fertilizing no more than once every six months, repot only as the roots grow.
3. Abutilon. Experienced growers advise beginners to grow abutilon at home, a plant that has attractive flower buds of various light and dark colors.
Externally, the flowers are similar to the shape of a bell. Despite the attractive appearance, care does not require abutilon - it can be grown both on the windowsill and beside it. The flower quietly transfers the sun's rays, dryness in the air, can go without water for a week.
The only feature, and perhaps complexity, for lazy beginner gardeners is the need for frequent feeding - once a month. You will also have to monitor the condition of the soil, but it is already easier - in the presence of abundant moisture in the ground, the flower simply does not bloom, but it will not die.
Abutilon has not only an attractive appearance, but also properties useful for tenants of an apartment. The leaves of the plant perfectly moisturize the air - experienced growers say that two pots with adult flowers can replace a humidifier.
4. Hibiscus. The same Chinese rose that attracts beginners to plant plants with its large flowers in the shape of cups on the background of a small miniature bush. Of the features of care, only mandatory maintenance on the windowsill, as well as regular watering (once in 5-7 days) and feeding, depending on the grade at least 1 time in 2-3 weeks.
5. Fatsia Japanese. When the apartment has more dark sides, you can land a Japanese fatsia on the windowsill. This plant is more familiar to look, because it has leaves of the form of eminent maple. In the care of the plant unpretentious - it can be placed near the heating devices.
In this case, the fatsia will not be nothing, it will even continue to humidify the air. Convenience in the cultivation of Japanese fatsia is also the absence of a high probability of infection of any diseases, the flower is almost not affected by pests. Florists talk about the beneficial effects of plants on human sleep, so it put in the bedroom.
6. Geranium - a flowering plant that identifies a flower, bringing comfort, warmth and happiness to a home. Those who do not want to spend much time caring for the plants, but prefer to have them in the house, it is enough to buy geranium, put it on the window sill (preferably east or west) and water the soil once a week.
You can resort to more complex care - to feed not more than 1 time in 2-3 months. In the absence of more complete care, geranium still blooms, though not so plentifully.
Unpretentious indoor flowers blooming all year round
If we consider beautiful unpretentious indoor flowers, they can be counted from a few dozen, the most simple ones in independent cultivation have already been discussed above (hibiscus, geranium and abutilon).
Now it is necessary to list the same easy-to-care flowers, which give flowering throughout the year, to one degree or another. It should be noted that carrying out plant nutrition gives a better and more numerous blooms.
1. Anthurium. Anthurium flower has a second name - male happiness, which is due to believe to improve male power. Despite skepticism, in many apartments you can find the represented plant, it's all about the simplicity of care. It will be enough for Anthurium if it is placed in the place where there will be diffused light - direct sunlight can burn its leaves.
The rest of the anthurium does not have to follow - it is important only to water it and check the moisture of the soil, which should not be completely drained. In the absence of regular feeding 1 flower will always please the eye. As soon as it fades away, a new one will grow in its place.
2. Pelargonium - another plant that occupies a leading position in the list of unpretentious flowering houseplants. The popularity of the flower lies in its uninterrupted flowering - it does not matter here which side of the apartment will be the pot. Florists point out only the fact that sunlight can affect the height of pelargonium itself.
And surprisingly, if the flower is put in the shade, the plant will stretch in length, if the light, you get a small and neat shrub. Pelargonium is watered every few days - it is necessary to ensure constant soil moisture. For the rest, it may be necessary to trim a flower to grow a neater shrub.
3. Royal Begonia. There are about a hundred types of begonias, but for the start of floriculture it is recommended to choose the royal begonia. This flower is unpretentious and when sunlight hits the room it will illuminate the room with attractive flowers.
It is recommended to put a pot with begonia on the east or west side so that the sun rays fall on a bush for several hours. Water it should be plentiful, but not to retain moisture in the soil.
4. Spathiphyllum. Callas lovers can rejoice, because now there is an excellent and unpretentious alternative - spathiphyllum. This plant pleases white large flowers, which consist of one large petal.
It is better to keep the pot in a weak shade, because from prolonged exposure to ultraviolet leaves start to turn a little yellow at the edges than they give the flower an inappropriate appearance.
5. Kalanchoe. Those housewives who love flowering plants, but constantly forget to water them, may prefer Kalanchoe. This flower can stand for a whole month without water, although this may still affect flowering.
Kalanchoe prefers warm summer days, so you can grow it on the southern window, but first it is better to slightly shade the flower.
Shade-loving indoor plants
Often, modern apartment buildings are built in such a way that only the shadow side is present in the apartment. In this case, the hostess prefer to do without houseplants in principle. And in vain, because there are unpretentious shade-loving indoor plants, which can additionally please the residents with flowering.
Unpretentious indoor palms
Most florists know that it is difficult to grow a palm tree at home - it takes time to care and constantly monitor the state. But there are the following unpretentious varieties:
- Hamedorea - does not require compliance with temperature, light and other factors, since it can grow in the proposed conditions. The advantage is the need to transplant no more than once in 1-1.5 years. The disadvantage is that you have to keep the soil constantly wet in the period of active growth.
- Howey Forster - similar to hamedorea, but has larger leaves and stems. It grows quickly, if you constantly moisturize and fertilize the soil, but can withstand a brief drought.
- Rapis is high - it grows well in a lightened place, in the shade you will have to wait for growth for a long time. The rest of the care is unpretentious - it is enough to water as the soil dries out and feed every month.
- Palm Liviston - one of the most popular among growers, although it requires a lot of attention. Of the features of care - suitable and specially designed soil, watering and feeding.
To grow palm trees faster, they are usually planted in one pot in the amount of 5-7 pieces. When transferring to a new place of residence, you should also send all copies together.
Flower growers, even experienced ones, are afraid of orchids, since their cultivation requires a lot of attention - as the owners say, they will have to inspect the condition of the flower every day in order to fix problems in time. However, upon careful consideration of the features of care, the following simple rules are distinguished:
At this care for the plant ends. In order not to aggravate the situation, it is recommended to use for planting the most unpretentious varieties of orchids - Oncidium, Dendrobium, Wanda, Cattleya.
Types of flowers blooming all year round
Each housewife wants the plants do not require complex care, and at the same time as much as possible please the eye with its flowering. There are quite a few. Here are the most interesting ones:
- Geranium (Pelargonium).
These tenants, blooming all year round, can be bought at any store. They will “forgive” their master any errors, but still there are subtleties in the care of each of them. The beauty and duration of flowering depends on them.
It is necessary to pay attention to such moments:
- how much light-loving, thermophilic and moisture-loving a plant,
- Is there a difference in the care of the flower in winter and summer,
- how to transplant apartment dweller,
- in what soil the flower will feel best.
In fact, the correct name of geranium is pelargonium. A true geranium is a gardener, not a householder. The confusion in the names occurred so long ago that no one remembers this. And all because Pelargonium could be found literally in every home.
It has a strong smellwhich repels insects and cleans the air from bacteria. If you are near a blooming geranium for a long time, your head may be sick.
- A feature of this plant is the love of sunlight. Often it is impossible to water pelargonium - its roots can rot. At the same time, watering in summer should be abundant, but infrequent, and in the winter dry content is necessary.
- If in the room where there is pelargonium, the normal room temperature, then it will delight with flowering all year round, except for December-January.
- Over time, pelargonium can grow strongly. In this case, as well as for the formation of a beautiful crown, it is necessary to trim or nip. You should know that pelargonium does not like too frequent pruning.
- Pelargonium can multiply by seed, but at home it is propagated by cuttings. To do this, cut off the apical shoot and root it. Young Pelargonium is transplanted and transshipped every year in spring, before the start of intensive growth.
- The best soil for pelargonium is a mixture of turf, humus, leaf soil and sand. The pot should not be very large, otherwise shoots with leaves will strongly develop, and there will be no flowering.
Flower growers brought out many varieties of pelargonium, different color and different smell. You can always choose a variety that fits perfectly with the interior.
Begonia - extremely unpretentious plant. It blooms so abundantly that it is reflected in the Latin name for begonias - begonia semperflorens. It translates as "begonia always flowering". With a caring attitude begonia will bloom all year round without interruption.
Begonia light-requiring, soil-tolerant and temperature conditions. In the summer it can be taken out on the balcony and left there without fear.
Begonia seated is also very simple: cut the stalk and put it in the water. Within a few days, the cutting will take root, after which it can be planted in a pot. To begonia was more bushy, it can be cut.
Balsam in popular speech is called "light". Its single, large flowers have long curved "spurs". During the flowering period there are almost no leaves behind the flowers, it seems from afar that the pot is not a plant, but small bright light. A balsam blooms very long - from June to October.
Balsam light-requiring, but does not tolerate bright sunlight. You can not put it where the sun shines directly. He is moisture-loving, on hot days you need him spray with water. He likes and warm, but not heat (from +15 to +25 degrees).
According to the conditions of detention, it is ideal for city apartments, in which, as a rule, there are no extreme weather conditions. is he feels great with artificial lighting.
You should only make sure that they do not stand too close to each other. In this case, they can lose the leaves. Leaves can also fall from the cold and lack of light.
Propagate balsam better cuttings removed from the top (about 3 cm long). Cuttings give roots in any solution or substrate. The best soil for a balsam is a mixture of humus and leafy earth with the addition of a small amount of sand.
When the balsam is 3–4 years old, it is better to transplant it, because young plants bloom more abundantly than old ones.
In rooms with artificial light fuchsia feels great. It blooms richly from early spring to late autumn. At this time, fuchsia can be kept on the balcony or in the garden.
To bloom longer, after the fall of the first flowers should trim them and feed. In winter, fuchsia should be watered rarely, and in summer, often and abundantly.
When the fuchsia winters, it sheds the leaves, and by spring it is covered with them again. Fuchsia necessarily need a rest, otherwise in season it will bloom badly.
In the flowering period do not move pots, move them from place to place. The plant can fold buds.
The easiest way to propagate fuchsia is with large, mature leaves with strong petioles. Flick the leaf off the stem with a sharp, sharp movement. From the bottom of the stem, a bud will sprout, which will develop into an adult plant.
Fuchsia is unpretentious to the soil, but it feels best in a mixture of leafy earth, chernozem, peat and sand (sand is two times less than the other components).
Because of the characteristic shape of the leaves, it is called indoor maple. This is an amazingly unpretentious home resident, requiring only regular, but moderate watering and constant lighting.
To bloom was more resistant and long, abutilon can feed potassium nitrate and superphosphate. Spring to him Strong pruning needed - one third or even half of all shoots.
Abutilon is propagated by cuttings in spring or summer, and the best soil for it is turf, humus, and leafy ground with a little added sand.
Spathiphyllum floriferous, or flagolist, appreciate not only for ease of care, but also for unusual white flowers with a delicate aroma. They are even grown on the cut (they can stand for a long time in the water).
Spathiphyllum is thermophilic (optimum temperature is 25–27 degrees), otherwise it is usual to care for it. It is almost impossible to dry, as it is to pour. Spathiphyllum likes moist air (85−90%) and the absence of direct sunlight.
If the conditions for him are not entirely suitable, he will not die, but it will just be worse to bloom. Spathiphyllum is propagated by dividing the bush into 2−3 parts. Each of the divided parts must have roots.
It is better to plant a young plant in small pots filled with a mixture of peat, humus, leaf ground and sand (in equal parts) and add to the soil a little charcoal, bark and crushed bricks.
Hibiscus or chinese rose
Hibiscus - undemanding evergreen shrub, which in indoor conditions can grow from one to two meters in height. From early spring to late autumn it is showered with large, fiery-red, white or pink flowers.
Hibiscus is required to put in a sunny place. In the summer it requires abundant watering and feeding. Зимой содержать гибискус лучше при температуре 16−17 градусов.
Размножается гибискус черенками. В воде или песке они моментально дают корни. Лучше всего роза чувствует себя в почве из дёрна, перегноя и торфа, with the addition of a small amount of sand.
Young plants are transplanted every spring, and adults - in a few years (depending on the capacity of the pot and the nutritional value of the soil). In the spring, hibiscus can be pruned to form a shrub and form young shoots on which flowers grow.
There are many varieties of anthurium. They are divided into two groups: flowering and decorative leafy. When buying is worth paying attention to it.
The beauty of anthuriums lies in the veil that surrounds their center. It is curved and leathery, bright red, pink, scarlet and less often white.
Anthurium photophilous, comfortable temperature for him - not less than +18 degrees. When watering, overwetting should be avoided. Anthuriums love spraying.
Anthuriums are planted by cuttings or branch of lateral shoots with roots (this is the easiest way). The soil should be well drained. It is best to mix sheet, peat, coniferous land in equal shares, and add a little sand and charcoal.
Clivia - flower with dark green elongated leaves. During flowering a long arrow with large yellow orange buds, similar to the bells, the number of which can reach up to 30 pieces.
Clivia shade-tolerant. If you feed her a little with mineral fertilizers, then even in the darkest room she will bloom profusely at the end of winter, in spring, and then, after a short break, and in summer.
Root sprouts always appear near the adult plant, with which they are propagated. They are carefully separated from the parent and planted into the soil from a mixture of turf, sand and leaf earth.
Plants for lazy
Beautiful, well-groomed green plants decorate the house, saturate the air with phytoncides, absorb harmful substances and create an atmosphere of comfort. But for the potted flowers bought in the store to grow safely and develop in your apartment, you need to look after them.
Some moody green creatures need to be sprayed with mist 3-4 times a day, others need shading from the bright sun at noon and lighting in the evening. Working outside the home, often leaving on vacation or on business trips, people cannot provide such plants with normal care.
So, completely without the greens do? No, you just need to choose the most unpretentious indoor plants for landscaping your home. Those that can withstand 1-2 weeks without watering, grow well in the dry air of a heated apartment, feel well in the heat and in the cold draft, do not require frequent dressings and transplants.
1. It is probably difficult to find a more unpretentious indoor plant than Sansevieria (Teschin tongue, piketail). It grows well on the south window and in a dark corner, but on the sunny window the leaves will be brighter.
You can repot it every few years, when the pot does not fit. Feed is not necessary.
Sansevieria does not suffer from the dry air of the apartment in the winter, it is not necessary to spray it. Watering is rarely necessary - moisture reserves are retained in dense leathery leaves, in winter it can not be watered at all - growth will stop, until the spring comes, it will rest.
Cold drafts of sansevieria are not terrible, it often decorates cold foyers and lounges.
2. Another exceptionally persistent ampelnoy plant - hoya carnose or "wax ivy". On the south window, it grows perfectly, in the north room, too, will not disappear. Moisture builds up in its thick wax leaves; it can easily survive several months without watering.
If you managed to completely dry the hoy and she lost all the leaves and roots, cut the stalk from the stem and place it in the water - in a couple of weeks the plant will give the roots again.
Wax ivy is transplanted very rarely, when there is absolutely no place in the pot. You can also do without dressings. And under good conditions of maintenance unpretentious hoya will appreciate the abundant and lush flowering.
3. Houseplant is very popular crassula ovalbetter known as bolster or money tree. It should be watered rarely - fleshy leaves retain a lot of moisture. The dry air of the apartment does not harm the sweeper. She practically does not need top dressing and transplantation.
The money tree can grow on the south window and on the north one. May be kept in a cool room in winter at a temperature of up to 10 degrees.
It is only necessary to follow two simple rules for the care of the money tree: the pot is small so that the soil has time to dry out between the irrigations, and add more sand, perlite or vermiculite to the land mix.
It breeds easily - just stick a leaf in the ground or in the water.
4. Graceful green or white and green narrow leaves chlorophytum seem tender and brittle. But this plant is one of the most undemanding and easy to care for. Its underground part has thickenings that accumulate water and nutrients.
Chlorophytum is not terrible drought and excess moisture, heat and cold drafts, it can grow in the sun and in the shade. It can live in the same pot for many years (of course, it is better to replant it on time, but it will not be lost without a transplant and additional feeding).
Chlorophytum is considered one of the best absorbers of harmful substances from the air. Perhaps because the plant is able to survive without proper care, that is able to receive and process the necessary substances from the air.
5. Aspidistra also does not require special care. This plant in England is called the "cast-iron plant" for its ability to withstand heat and cold, lack of light and moisture. Another name for it is “friendly family” because of the large number of leaves on long petioles growing from a small pot.
This plant is perfect:
- for northern rooms,
- for decorating rooms with a lack of daylight,
- for landscaping offices with artificial lighting.
Aspidistra grows normally in dry and humid air, is not afraid of any drafts or heat, does not suffer from excess moisture or its lack. It is rarely necessary to replant it, when the rhizome begins to occupy almost the entire pot.
6. Exotic does not need special care. Zamiokulkas. It tolerates poor lighting and breaks in watering the soil. Zamiakulkas does not suffer from the bright sun, does not require frequent transplants and dressings, it grows well in a small pot.
If you do not water for a long time, it will drop all leaf blades, will lose its decorative effect, but from the tuber (thickened stem under the soil surface) after watering new complex leaves will quickly grow.
Only requirement - The soil should not be too nutritious and dense. It is better to mix ready-made soil for violets or cacti with sand.
7. The ideal plant for people who often leave their home for 1-2 weeks - nolina (bokarneya). This desert dweller with a bottle-shaped trunk looks original in any interior, requires very little care and attention. And for the formation of caudex (thickening on the trunk) it needs to be watered rarely, but plentifully, so that it is saturated with water during the “drought” period.
Only requirement - to plant the bokarney correctly: the soil should be loose, poorly nourished, the pot should be small. After a good watering all the excess moisture should flow out of the pot. In the wet ground, this plant will rot.
8. Gold bank - unpretentious ampelnoe plant with heart-shaped or rounded leaves of bright green color with yellowish-white spots. The plant can reach one and a half meters in length, it is used for vertical gardening.
Money plant is quite shade tolerant, can grow in the depths of the room, where only occasionally the sun falls, or even completely do only artificial lighting. True, the leaves in the shade lose their light spots, become completely green.
Plant care is minimal. The crib effectively cleans the air of harmful substances. Feels very good in the kitchen, where constant changes in temperature and humidity. Its dense leaves and stems retain moisture well. It grows quickly, so it is advisable to periodically fertilize.
9. Some species Kalanchoe have long been known as a medicinal houseplant that does not require any care. Recently, many beautifully flowering Kalanchoe hybrids have appeared.
You can rarely water the plant, its dense, succulent leaves and stems contain a lot of moisture. It grows well on windows of any orientation.
Kalanchoe is a shade-tolerant flower, no problem tolerates sudden changes in temperature, blooms for a long time. It grows rather slowly, does not need frequent transplants.
10. Spathiphyllum - unpretentious, flowering throughout the year plant. In summer it grows well on the western, eastern and northern windows, in winter it is better to rearrange it to the south.
Lack of moisture tolerates well. With a strong desiccation, the leaves wilt, but after watering come to life again. Frequent transplants are not required. Fertilizers are useful, but without them will not disappear.
For spathiphyllum it is important to choose the right place - he does not like the cold. Put it away from drafts and windows opening in the winter for airing, and there will be no problems with the plant.
Such unpretentious in the care of indoor plants quite a lot, it is easy to choose ampelnoe or beautifully flowering, large or miniature. Minimal care does not mean that the flower can be left in the corner for half a year without watering. Each houseplant requires attention, responds to care with new shoots, the appearance of buds.
Indoor flowering plants: practical benefits
Unpretentious indoor flowersblooming every year at home, bring great benefits. These flowers are ideal for interior decoration:
- In a private house or city apartment,
- In the country, where the owners are periodic "arrivals",
- In kindergarten or at school,
- In a hospital or clinic,
- In the office.
They bring great benefits. They saturate the air in the room with oxygen, absorbing carbon dioxide. The flowers that appear on them, create a cozy atmosphere and have to communicate in a relaxed atmosphere. Plants that bloom all year round - ideal for a "rest room" at the factory, office or train station. They are frequent "guests" in greenhouses and winter gardens. In addition, some of the indoor plants that bloom all year round, have healing properties. Some of them can be eaten.
For example, fragrant tea can be made from jasmine leaves, and gourmets can make jam from rose petals. However, before conducting medical or culinary experiments with indoor plants, you need to carefully examine it for damage by pests or parasites. If as a result of the inspection traces of vital activity of harmful insects are found, it is not recommended to eat leaves (stalks) or use leaves (stalks) for medicinal purposes.
Most often, lovers of indoor flowers grow fuchsia, indoor jasmine, indoor rose, and zygocactus, or Decembrist.. Despite its name, it blooms not only in December. With proper care, zigocactus can bloom all year round. He just does not like the heat and blooms more actively when the temperature in the room is not the highest.
Also, many flower growers who do not like to pay much attention to their plants readily grow succulents at home, for example, cacti and agave. The only disadvantage of such flowers is that you can wait for flowers every few years. However, they look original and without flowers, so they are very popular when interior design of non-residential premises.
Indoor flowering plants all year round: proper care at home
Unpretentious indoor flowers, blooming every year at home, require proper care. The fact that they are called unpretentious, does not mean that they do not need care. Care is needed, however, it takes quite a bit of time. This is their main plus. Indoor plants that bloom all year long and undemanding to care, quickly adapt to any climatic conditions and temperature changes.
If an amateur florist is forced to leave home for a few days, they will quietly live out these few days without watering or with an automatic watering system. They also do not require frequent feeding, because they are undemanding on the chemical composition and the level of soil acidity. List of activities for the care of indoor plants, blooming all year round, includes the following activities:
- Soil loosening
- Pest and parasite control,
- Ensuring the proper functioning of the drainage system,
- Transplant, as they grow, into larger pots.
Plants that are undemanding to care and bloom all year round, require regular watering because they spend a lot of energy on year-round flowering. It should not be allowed to stagnate the liquid in the pot, so the soil must be regularly loosened. Loosening is a kind of airing that allows the soil to "breathe." If we neglect loosening and contain flowers in pots that are not equipped with drainage holes, the liquid will stagnate, and this will eventually lead to serious fungal diseases and gradual rotting of the root system.
Unpretentious plants that bloom all year periodically need feeding, but with top dressing it is better not to overdo it. These flowers adapt well to any soil composition. In the summer, they feel good on the balcony, on the terrace or on the veranda of the summer cottage. However, you should not keep them in the fresh air until the frost, because it is still indoor plants, accustomed to certain climatic conditions. To accustom them to fresh air should be gradually, starting with a few minutes. If you take out a plant that is unaccustomed to fresh air on the balcony for the whole day, it will not have time to adapt to new conditions. In the fall and winter, sissies are better not to "walk."
Indoor flowering plants all year round: pest and parasite control
Unpretentious indoor flowers, blooming every year at home, will look beautiful only if the flowering plants are not affected by pests and parasites.
It is much easier to prevent the invasion of parasites and pests, than, having missed time, then heal a diseased flower. Need to regularly inspect the flower The following signs indicate the presence of pests and parasites:
- Suddenly and quickly yellowed leaves,
- The leaves, which are themselves curled into a tube,
- Deformed flowers of irregular shape, fast drying,
- A large number of dried and unblown buds,
- Sticky or wet marks on the leaves and stem. Most likely, the leaves and the stem have become sticky from the mucus secreted by the pests.
To make the pests disappear, it is necessary to regularly spray the plants from the sprayremoving dust and dirt from leaves. For the destruction of pests need to spray the flower with insecticide solutions. Leaves, stems and flowers affected by parasites, need time to cut and burn. Plants most severely affected by dangerous pests are transplanted into another pot and isolated from the “neighbors” until the complete disappearance of harmful insects. Plants that bloom all year round - "tidbit" for spider mites. The spider mite loves dust very much; therefore, in no case should dust be allowed to appear on the leaves.
Indoor Flowering Plants: Precautions
It must be borne in mind that many indoor flowers, favorite flower growers for undemanding care, can provoke allergic reactions in children and adults suffering from asthma and prone to allergies. Also among the undemanding indoor plants a lot of poisonous. A typical example of such a flower is room ivy, which has flowers with an unpleasant smell and deadly poisonous berries.
Before you bring home a new houseplant, an amateur grower must read the detailed information about the new flower in the Floriculture Handbook. Not recommended to keep at homewhere there are children and pets, indoor plants, which:
- Are strong allergens
- Have a sharp or unpleasant smell
- Distinguish caustic juice
- They have poisonous fruits.
It is best to keep such plants in non-residential premises, with the exception of children's institutions. Plants with a strong or repulsive odor are best kept in spacious and well-ventilated rooms, such as meeting rooms or conference rooms, because the strong smell is not so strongly felt in a large room.
Indoor flowering plants all year round: practical recommendations
Those who want to grow indoor plants that bloom all year round should bear in mind that such flowers need a lot of energy for year-round flowering. If you neglect the watering and other activities for the care, the flower will not live long. However, with proper care, on the contrary, it will actively grow, develop and please the eye.
Before choosing a year-round flowering houseplant for an apartment or a private house, you need to weigh the pros and cons, and also to learn the most detailed information about this plant. The main thing is that it is not poisonous and does not cause allergies. Приобретать комнатные растения, цветущие круглый год, лучше всего в специализированных магазинах.
Не рекомендуется покупать комнатные «растения» на рынках, потому что они могут быть поражены вредителями или паразитами или же заражены грибковыми инфекциями. You need to choose plants that look healthy, have no visible defects and damage. Young plants take root best at home. The younger the indoor flower, the faster it adapts to the new environment. If an amateur gardener often leaves the house for several days, an automatic irrigation system based on capillary mats can be purchased along with the plants.
Houseplants, which year-round delight with their flowers - a great opportunity to decorate the interior of a residential or non-residential premises. The main thing is that they approach the interior and do not bring harm to those who live in the room.
