You don’t have to free a whole room for indoor gardening. No worries, if you haven’t found any place inside the room. There are many plants that can stand and grow through the wall. Actually, they require a wall for their support. You can put these near your dining table, and even near a bathtub. But make sure the area you choose is shady. An expert of gardening and outdoor design at the Cityline TV show, Carson Arthur says, “Plants with large leaves can turn minimal light into more energy.” Notice that the upper soil dries out quicker than the lower soil while watering the plant. Clematis can be placed inside the house but make sure you water it perfectly and keep it in the area where the plant gets sunlight at least for 6 hours daily.
Carson Arthur pleasantly says, “A windowsill planter is like a living salad bowl.” Plants like lettuce and leafy vegetable grow in the potting soil. While herbs require sandy soil for their perfect growth. You can place these plants near the window edge, an eastern and southern, both types of sunlight are preferable in winter of these plants. Wouldn’t it be good to have vegetables set in your home? So that you won’t need to leave the house in this chilling weather to buy them.
Won’t it look a little unique and exclusive to put plants on the tabletop apart from the regular jug, glass, and plate? The plants you are going to put on the table are those that come under the category of succulent plants. They can be vessel potted and flowering too. According to the words implied by Carson Arthur, it is ensured that these plants can survive on a longer duration of time and you don’t have to put a lot of efforts on them as they require very little maintenance. Make sure you don’t put a big-big pot on the table because it looks far than unique.
Kokedama was initiated by Japanese people. This technique withdraws the pot from the plants. First, you have to take off all the dirt from the roots of plants which have comparatively smaller root bases than others as for example ferns and ivy. After that, wrap the plants around the peat moss and bonsai soil so that it resembles a ball. Make sure that peat moss and bonsai soil contain enough moisture. At last, envelop the whole ball into a sheet moss often available as preserved moss. When the weight seems lower than before, moist it with water. You can also hang it down the ceiling with the help of cord or thread. It looks very lovely while hanging and adds beauty to your home. Doesn’t it seem like a plus-point?
Tillandsia comes under the category of air plants. They need well and good sunlight as well as air apart from other things. The unique feature of air plants is that they can grow without soil. The things they require most for their good growth are regular steam and a 15 minutes water bath weekly. Make sure the water is well soaked in the plants and before hanging or placing it in the glass container, let it dry completely. Can’t it be used as a show-piece too?
