Many decide that there are no such non-plants in nature, but it is not. There are many large and small, shadowish and light and vigilant, tree and curly plants that resist the uncomfortable conditions of urban apartments and modern offices with working computer equipment and numerous staff.


The category of unpretentious domestic flowers includes decorative-deciduous, and beautiful plants, among which there is always a choice for a variety of tastes and preferences.

Decorative deciduous

These are perennial indoor plants in which the decorative decoration element is Crohon from beautiful leaves, having a variety of shape and original color. Usually they do not bloom at all or their flowers are small, unbroken, not having decorative value. On some types of flowers and remove at all, the energy of the plant is not consumed for useless flowering.

Palm trees and large species

Home palm trees in the apartment are associated with the moments of summer holidays on the sea shore under the lightweight breeze and a quiet whisper waves. In spacious premises, the exotic type of these luxurious gigids fit easily into any interior.

Characteristic feature of all types of palm trees – the only point of growth on the top of the plant. To care are undemanding, but do not like drafts and cold air flows when the room is ventilated in winter. Buy palm to in spring or summer so that it is better adapted in the new house.

Besides palm, to room large rooms include tall types of drazes, monster, ficus of Benjamin, Futnsedera, some species of fern and others. Mandatory condition for large ceiling – spacious premises with high ceiling, otherwise the crown will be deformed.

Curly shadowish

Indoor curling liaans can be placed the walls, hide an unsuccessful element of the interior, arrange an empty angle, decorate a high stand. Decorative lianas easily adapt to the microclimate of urban apartments.

Translated from German Ampel – hanging a vase for flowers, hence the name. Indoor plants of this species are grown in suspended container. It can be a cachep, pots, vases that hang high above the floor.

Shoots of ampel plants fall down, steel horizontally along the wall or climb up, if the space is allowed. Ampel plants decorated door and window loans, arches, arbors, verandas, balconies, loggia.

Telebobile species

From a variety of brass-indoor plants, stylish compositions are compiled, capable of reviving and decorate any room. Plants of this group are always enjoyable in flowerflowers, because In conditions of closed space, even on light window sills of the southern windows, the intensity of the light flux is at times lower than in the open sky, and already at a distance of one meter from the window illumination even less.

But there are varieties growing without the sun, for which there is enough scattered light.

They are able to grow well away from the windows, in the shade and can decorate even the dark hallway. Among them, there are both decorative and deciduous and flowering indoor plants.

Flowering round year

Teothelubilee plants with beautiful full blooming are significantly less than decorative deciduous. To flower formed buds and bloomed, he will need much more resources than to form a green crown without flowering.

We must remember that Each blooming plant needs a recovery period and cannot always bloom continuously. But from several species you can make a spectacular set that will bloom on the windowsill all year round. To do this, it is necessary to choose plants in which the periods of rest do not coincide in time.

Growing in onest

The concepts of “shadow” and “halftown” for plants are very relative. If you move away from the window to a distance of 1 meter and continue to depart into the dregs of the room, then at a distance of 3 meters, the human eye does not feel a significant difference in illumination. But for plants it will be a weighty difference.

Knowing flower uses a simple proven way: If the newspaper text (with good vision) is easily read at some position in the room at noon, then at this place you can safely place pots with shadowish flowers; If the text is read with difficulty, this place is not suitable even for persistent plant species.

Those room flowers, which in natural conditions lived in places where the sun’s rays are rarely made, and there is a constant half. Breeders successfully used this feature.

In the breeding work, they strongly developed the ability of new varieties and hybrids to feel good and look good with a lack of light.

  • where it is planned to place a pot or vase – on the windowsill, on the floor, on the shelf, on the wall;
