The choice of indoor plants: flowers, filters, flowers, enemies and a little mysticism
Home greenhouse is a great idea. It revives the interior, adds to it an elegant decoration, and besides, oxygenates the air in your apartment. True, to form this blooming paradise and grow it is not so easy. This can be called a true art. We will talk about unusual colors and how not to get lost in a large selection of indoor plants.
Large selection of indoor plants: spontaneous shopping - no?
No matter how much we strive for the beautiful, the hands often do not reach for the selection of a home collection of plants. Sometimes it will give a nice flowerpot or spontaneously buy a flower sunk into the soul. And then how to be? So do not follow! The appearance in the house of these living creatures must be treated responsibly.
For example, refined gardenias or orchids require a special place and watering regime: simple rules will not work here - water when the soil becomes dry.But all kinds of climbing plants can live in almost any conditions.
It is better to buy houseplants deliberately. After all, oddly enough, this is also a responsibility and not every flower will take root. And the death of a living plant is a depressing sight ... So, how to choose indoor plants so that they "live with you happily”?
Have to fulfill the whims?
It seems to plant a flower - it is not a dog to start, well, what kind of trouble can there be? And here and there, each plant species needs special living conditions, which may not be in our compact city apartments. For each type of color, a special degree of illumination, humidity and air temperature in the apartment is needed.
From capricious to pretty
I want to see the light!

Flowers are different, even dangerous
Also, be sure to take into account the presence of children and pets in the house. The fact is that there are poisonous indoor plants. These are, say, azalea, croton, clivia, oleander and many others. Of course, they will not poison the air, but if you taste them, the consequences can be sad.
And it is not only about ordinary allergies - even paralysis and death are possible, for example. Therefore, if you have small children or nimble pets, such flowers you absolutely can not keep in the house.
Now the practical point: filtering flowers
Flowers, in addition to aesthetics, can also bring benefits. If you have recently been repaired or there is a plant nearby, then purchase first of all flowers, which intensively purify the air of all these chemical substances.
Here, chlorophytum is a wonderful flower: it decorates the interior, it goes without water for a long time, not to mention other special conditions, and it also functions as an air filter - cleans it even from bacteria! The strongest filter colors also include:
- Shefflera for smokers - neutralizes tobacco smoke,
- Gold balance,
- Hamedorea is elegant,
- ficus benjamina,
- Sansevieria three-lane,
And a bit of mysticism ...
Flowers should be chosen for your character. Many lazy people say that they can only care for a cactus, because it is the only flower that does not wither from scant care. And in this joke, as in any other, there is a fair amount of truth. Therefore, choosing a flower, also correlate your character with the nature of caring for the vending plant.
Believe me, there are “independent” flowers that will survive perfectly and with irresponsible care. For example, sansevieriya (popularly called teschin tongue or pike tail) can do without watering for a week!
And some avid flower growers believe that not only animals, but also plants have their own mental soul, so love is also needed in all senses for their prosperity. Many people even talk with their flowers ...

It’s not for nothing that exciting erotic scenes have arisen about a beautiful gardener, in whose hands roses of rare breeds come to life ... In short, men, think about taking up a new atypical hobby! Girls will love it.
