Creating Indoor Gardens
Posted March 11, 2011on:
Growing an indoor garden is very beneficial as it plays an important role in reducing air pollution in your house and consequently it will also prove healthy for you. Many people want to create indoor gardens but don’t know the exact way of making it possible. It is quite easy to create indoor garden if some useful tips and instructions are followed. Such instructions are given below:
Firstly you will have to purchase plants that can grow and flourish indoors. These plants may include some varieties of ivy and tropical plants.
Selection of Containers
You will have to select containers of good quality. Plastic containers should never be used as they can not support a growing plant due to their light weight. Remember that the containers are not only necessary for the proper growth of plants but also they affect the decoration of your house. Bad quality containers can spoil the outlook and décor of your house.
Choice of Soil
Potting soil should be used to grow the plants indoors. Some people make a mistake by using the topsoil from their yard. It can be bad for the healthy growth of plants because topsoil doesn’t contain the nutrients essential for plants.
Selection of Location
The best area for growing the plants indoors is that which receives a lot of sunlight during the day time. An eastern-facing window would be the perfect location as it receives a large amount of sunlight in the afternoon.
Keeping the Plants Mist
Indoor plants need to be misted frequently. In big and modern homes, there are air conditioners which give a pleasant feeling to human as they deplete the indoor moisture. But this is not good for indoor plants. Therefore it is necessary to provide moisture to the plants daily with a spray bottle. Remember to fill the spraying bottle with filtered water.
Arrangement of Plants
The plants should be arranged in an attractive way to appeal the guests that visit your house. You may hang some plants from the ceiling. Spider plants and ivies are best for this purpose as they grow downwards. While making plants grouping, place taller plants in the back of short plants so that short plants become visible.
These were some simple instruction to create indoor gardens. Hopefully it will help you a lot.
