House Plants

With so much variety of house plants on offer, the ones you choose can depend on a host of factors. Some of the criteria should be: the environment you intend to keep them in, access to natural lighting and other ornaments or furniture which may be around them, available space, and the time you have to look after and care for them. Your personal preference also plays a large part in your choice, however if you’re buying your first house plant then it may be a good idea to chose one which is easier to look after. Orchids for example, are pretty much troubles free and practically look after themselves. Although they may look somewhat fragile, they have flowers which last for months and remains colourful and exotic looking.

Bathroom Plants

Bathrooms are often the best rooms for growing indoor plants because of the warm, humid conditions. Bathrooms are also often well lit, which provides the ideal environment for growth. If the bathroom is poorly lit, then light must then be provided artificially using bulbs which promote plant growth.  

Kitchen Plants

Depending on how often you cook, and the time of day, the temperature and humidity of the kitchen is likely to be more variable. Often, the best place to grow plants is in hanging baskets or on shelves above the kitchen surfaces. Choose plants which aren’t likely to topple easily and avoid putting them in places where they’re likely to get in the way. 

Hallway Plants

Hallways are usually airy and prone to quite a bit of draught. This as well as the fact that temperatures can fluctuate rapidly, really dictate what you can grow in your hallway. Tough plants which can deal with the changing temperatures and are quite sturdy are the best choices. 

Bedroom Plants

As most bedrooms offer a cooler growing environment, they are ideal for most winter-flowering house plants. You could try azalea, cyclamen or even jasmine. When it comes to bedrooms, the notion of less being more applies simply because it’s more difficult to relax in a cluttered room. Perhaps sticking to smaller plants which can be placed on a window sill or in the corner of the room is a better choice. 

Living Room Plants

The living room is often the first place people think of decorating and populating with beautiful ornaments and plants. It’s the room you spend most of the time relaxing or entertaining guests and often, the first room you see when you enter a house.  Unfortunately, the warm and dry atmosphere of the living room isn’t the best place for plants to grow. The key to success is to maintain humidity around the leaves and to avoid a dry atmosphere. Moisten the foliage regularly by spraying water on them. Avoid placing plants near radiators or the television. You may even want to group plants together so they can create their own micro-climate.
