How to choose the best indoor plants to decorate your house?
Before buying any plant, you need to be very well informed about its needs and analyse whether you can cover them with the possibilities you have at home.
One of the most important factors to take into account is light, as it is essential for plants. Knowing whether they need a lot of light or not is a determining factor when it comes to finding a place for them at home.
The other factor is the humidity and temperature of each room, as this will help you determine the frequency of watering.
5 plants to have indoors
If you are a #plantkiller and the plants you have around the house always die, perhaps it is because you have not chosen the right one according to the above-mentioned characteristics.
Here are 5 indoor plants that will survive if they do.
> Kentia. They need medium to bright light and weekly water. They need space because they can grow up to 3 metres.
> Castiron plant. Ideal for those who easily forget to water their plants, it only needs water every ten days. It is a plant with dark green leaves and exuberant strength.
> Sansevieria or snake plant. It is a plant that everyone tends to like, has sharp leaves and can survive extreme conditions, therefore it requires little water and light.
> Cactis. The immortals par excellence, these types of plants are used to withstand desert conditions, so the only thing they need is to be located in areas with plenty of light.
> Monstera. The most fashionable plant is also easy to care for! It has beautiful leaves and is easy to repot. It doesn’t require a lot of light, but it does like humidity.
Did you know that there are double benefits of decorating with indoor plants?
Medicinal plants, aromatic plants and citrus fruits are plants that bring us double benefits, since we can also consume them.
Having aromatic plants in the kitchen allows you to spice up your dishes with your own plants. In the case of citrus fruits, you can buy the “dwarf” variety, which can live perfectly well in a pot and bear fruit.
If you don’t have any plants at home yet, now is a good time to start. Find the plant that best suits the characteristics of your home and venture to take care of it, you will see that it is addictive!
