Choose Your Indoor Plants

There are a wide range of options when you pick up the plants for your indoor garden.

You can choose among a huge variety that best suits your interest and hence it is apt to say that there is absolutely no scarcity or lack of options while choosing the plants for your garden.

Here we give you some examples of what kind of greenery you can choose to spice up and decorate your interiors.

Always remember that all plants grows well only if they receive sufficient amount energy from the sun. If the plants are not kept in sunlight, then after a few days, during its growth process, it will eventually tend to turn and aim towards the sun which results in an inclined or irregular position of growth. In such a case, you will have to spin the direction of the plant so that it will continue to grow upright.

A few examples of the well-known plants that are grown indoors are as follows:

African Violets: These plants are simple and small in appearance and can be easily grown in small pots as they very well conform to the conditions of an indoor garden.  They bloom well for around 3 weeks but only if they receive a lot of sunlight. Hence it is required to keep them in a location with plenty of sunshine, suitably on a windowsill.

Having said that, it doesn’t mean that they should always be kept in the scorching sun because they will dry and wither away due to its heat. Also these plants require a special manure or fertilizer  which you can get it from any garden or green house outlets.

Begonias: There are actually three types of this flowering plant such as Tuberous, Semperflorens and Perennial.  Semperflorens  are the most prevalent and wide spread variety among the Begonias and are available in ever blossoming and lustrous wax polish coatings.

The Begonias have a very captivating and wonderful yellow core and comes in various colors like red, pink, yellow and white.

Ivy: This plant is an enticing and good-looking climber which is suitable for indoor gardens. They can grow well even in a shadowy location for quite a long time but eventually tend to want energy from the sunlight.

So if you consider having this plant in among your indoor garden plants, then it is mandatory to keep it in a place that receives sunshine. And also its important to water it regularly because inadequate supply of water stunts or stops the growth of the plant. It is also equally important to ensure the outflow of excessive water from the base of the pot.

Cactus, Coleus, Amaryllis, Geraniums, Paper Whites, Poinsettia and a variety of rubber plants are the other much-preferred varieties of plants that are best suited to be grown as indoor plants.
