The Ultimate Guide to Indoor Plants
People grow plants indoor when they have no more room left outside, or they perhaps can’t get enough of those lush and gorgeous green leaves. It is also a great option to prevent plants from getting damaged. Indoor gardening requires less work, alleviate stress, and improve one’s focus and productivity, which makes them perfect for not only your house but also your workplace.
If you are interested in growing houseplants and feel a little lost on how to start, here is a practical and useful guide to plants and how to treat them.
Plants require adequate light for photosynthesis to produce fruits and flowers. Since you have plants inside the house, they cannot get direct sunlight from the sun. Nevertheless, you may use Grow Lights to give your plants ample of light they require.
For herbs and plants that require a tremendous amount of light, use fluorescent lights since they are bright enough for houseplants.
Another essential component for the survival of indoor plants is water. There are no plants that do not require water, even desert plants like succulents and cactus. While they need a lot of moisture, remember, overwatering can kill your plants – the excess of anything is harmful. A lot of water can make the soil soggy, preventing the oxygen from reaching the roots. Many plants require dry soil for many weeks, and some need water regularly.
Indoor plants do not ask for too much space in your house; you may have them placed in your rooms, kitchen, on the counter table. If you plan on growing multiple houseplants, you may have to set up a table or bench for your plants. Set a trap under the table or bench to catch water drops from the plants. If you want, you may use an empty shelve but ensure each plant absorbs enough light.
It may seem like there is a lot of work, which is true, but it is not impossible. Stick to the basics, and you will never lose track! Happy green days!
