Catching up for a kitchen interior, you can not get around your attention such an important detail as kitchen plants. Even one green bush can revive the space and give it a new mood.
The comfort in the house is impossible without the presence of domestic flowers, including in the kitchen. Choosing plants for this room, it will be possible not only to transform it visually, but also significantly improve the habitat. As you know, many Flora experts are able to change the quality of air for the better, cleaning it from hazardous substances and absorbing the smells of cooking. Thinking out the habitat of green “pets”, it should be borne in mind that no plant is in the state of survive numerous splashes of water with soap foam or heat from the stove. This suggests that you should not have flowers near the sink, as well as above the stove, in the locker or on the exhaust.
If the kitchen is poorly illuminated or its windows come to the north, preference is recommended to be given to those plants that love or at least endure the shadow.
The list of kitchen plants is impossible without chlorophytum, which is often referred to as the “Nepusny Fata” or “Green Lily”. You can identify it by the presence of long thin sheets painted in green or white-green shades, as well as aspiring down the mustache. It is at the ends of the latter and formed kids. Chlorophytum looks very beautiful and, in addition, it is capable of developing even in the most difficult conditions. For example, it is recommended that it is recommended to acquire for dark kitchens or those looking to the north.
Culture creates quite quickly and does not require much care. In fact, it is capable of ensuring proper care even a novice flower-like amateur. If the owners have to go on vacation, then they don’t even worry about watering – without liquid, chlorophytum is able to live for a whole month. The only change that happens to it is drying the leaves, which, in principle, is rapidly eliminated when restoring the irrigation regime. This plant will not die, even pour it with water – they will simply start growing roots.
Chlorophyteum in the kitchen will clean the air from many harmful substances, for example, carbon monoxide, and saturate with oxygen.
Surprisingly, the higher the concentration of dirt in oxygen, the more active the culture is growing and the better he feels. In addition, it is believed that the green “pet” neutralizes harmful radiation, coming from some types of equipment, such as a microwave oven. To the kitchen room, with an area of approximately 20 square meters, it is recommended to set up about four plants, and one pot will be enough for five-meter. Chlorophytum put on any horizontal surfaces or fix on the wall or window using special suspended structures and cadpo.
Epipremnum was previously known called SCindaptus. Like chlorophytum, it perfectly filters air from excess carbon dioxide, which is a by-product of using gas burners. Epipremnum is easy to determine by the presence of fleshy leaves of a saturated green color, located at the ends of long lian. This culture is evergreen and thermal-loving. The plant is not able to develop with a lack of sunlight either in cold and dryness, therefore it is the kitchen that becomes the best residence for him. It is important to mention that in the dark northern premises it will not be able to grow.
Since the development of epipremnum is actively forming, lianas are actively forming, it is necessary to select a place for it, taking into account this feature. Ideally, long processes are located along the wall or go along the upper shelves. In addition to standard care, the plant requires periodic erasing of dust from leaves and their spraying.
Cisus is known to most flower water as indoor grapes. He received its popularity thanks to undemanding in accommodation and care, as well as the emergence of beautiful weaves in development. Only putting a cisus in the kitchen, it is better to bind a liana to special supports so that they are accustomed to keeping. After some time, the need to completely disappear. The best plant feels at temperatures from 10 to 18 degrees of heat, depending on the season. The room in which it grows is important to air, but not allow drafts or exposure to direct sunlight. Ideally, the place must be either shady, or with scattered light.
Cisus should not be placed next to batteries – dry air will go to harm.
In the northern cuisine, the Sansivieria, famous for the people like “Teschin Langa”. It is not afraid of shady spaces, however, like a bright sun. The plant is distinguished by high resistance, it feels good at any humidity, loves heat, but does not suffer from drafts. In addition, Sansivieria is very loyal to breaks in irrigation. In the kitchen, this culture actively absorbs unpleasant odors, up to formaldehyde, and also cleans air from excess carbon dioxide.
Choosing a begonia to design a kitchen, you should give preference to a special room of its varieties, blooming and summer, and in winter. The plant does not like shadows, so it is worth adding it only in the kitchens, looking at the windows to the West, South or East. Optimal light for begonias – bright and scattered. Despite the fact that the plant feels well with high humidity, additionally, it is not worth spraying, as it threatens the occurrence of dark ugly spots.
Begonia, like the other above plants, is involved in air filtration due to the release of phytoncides.
Recommendations for choosing
The choice of living plants should initially be determined depending on the arising microclimate of the room. Since temperature changes, and dry hot air, and high humidity, and dry hot air, and high humidity are possible at different moments, and high humidity, preference should be given to unpretentious cultures that grow well in such conditions. If such plants seem too boring, it is worth considering the possibility of acquiring artificial flowers, for example, compositions of scarlet wounds, garden roses and peonies.
Important climatic conditions include the amount and direction of sunlight, which, if necessary, is adjusted by applying curtains or phytolamps.
Then the minimum indoor temperature is taken into account, the presence of drafts, the complexity of the care and features of the flower cycle. For some people, Feng Shui is important: whether plants attract wealth, love and other things necessary things, and in the case of a positive response, in what places they are best placed. Of course, for those people who choose kitchen plants not only from an aesthetic point of view, but also a “wellness”, it is important to purchase a flower, actively absorbing smells and cleaning air from harmful elements.
Tips for care
Experts believe that the plant in a pot or vase should not often move from place to place, as it is not characteristic of their nature. However, if the flower becomes bad reason, and the change of irrigation mode does not help, the change “place of residence” may be decisive. Those cultures that love light must be placed closer to the window, at least no further pair of meters. For the rest of the plants, this requirement is not decisive.
Nevertheless, all the colors are both light and speakers, it is important to place as far as possible from washing and a cooking surface.
The most common places for kitchen plants are the windowsill and floor. Hot surfaces, such as battery, of course, are not considered. In addition, the pots are placed on the shelves of cabinets, on the walls, eaves, and even the refrigerator, for which strong vibrations are not typical. When checking testing plants, it is recommended to provide them with additional drainage of pebbles for greater stability.
Irrigation of kitchen “inhabitants” is carried out in the real liquid, which has already changed the cold temperature on the room.
In order not to spoil the cabinets and other surfaces, pots and vases should be additionally equipped with pallet. The need for watering is determined by the state of the soil – if the upper layer brightened and sucked deep into up to 3 centimeters, it was time to pour bushes.
A good solution is considered to add to the soil of minerals that are batteries of liquid and capable of transmitting it to plants if necessary. After the purchase, the plant is not allowed to immediately transplanted into a new porridge – at first he needs at least a week to get used to new habitat conditions. When the procedure still takes place, it is necessary to do it carefully, without cleaning the roots from the earthen comkers, and moving them together with them.
As a drainage for kitchen plants, either clamzite is applied, or a broken egg shell. Best pots are samples made of clay, providing the necessary air penetration. In addition to irrigation, kitchen plants also need regular cutting of dried leaflets, stalks and flowers.
Examples in the interior
Original caspo design allows you to place kitchen plants in an unusual place. For example, if you put decorative bushes in metal buckets, the latter will succeed to attach to special hooks that are fastened to the bottom of the metal shelf. A very organic neighbor for them will be a set of beautiful mugs. It is worth mentioning that in such containers is often located home garden – as an option, mint and basil grown there.
Decorate any kitchen, if you put plants in the original pot and porridge. For example, it can be a figurine of men with “live” green hair, large-sized colorful mugs with saucers or stylish wooden boxes.
The classic design is considered to have a pair of pots on window sills, mounted porridge at the window and beautiful bouquet in the center of the table.
