Tips for using ornamental plants at home
Ornamental plants, as the name suggests, are used to decorate the house, that is, to decorate. They have shapes, colors and a distinctive type of flower that work very well for this purpose. But to be always beautiful, you need some basic care, see:
Choose the most appropriate species
First select the most suitable species for the environment to be decorated. Some plant species fit well in other hotter locations in more humid areas. It is therefore important to distinguish, for example, whether the plant will be in a room that receives a lot of light or in a bathroom where moisture is more common.
Indoor and outdoor areas are also very different. The internal environment is usually more stable and outside of the house the plant can suffer from wind, frost, intense sun and even pollution.
Beware of poisonous plants
Some species, like the traditional Nobody Can, are poisonous. So if you have children or pets at home, you shouldn’t choose poisonous or poisonous plants.
Shadows, penumbra or direct light
Light is the energy source of the plant. No light, no photosynthesis, no plant. All plants need light to grow and keep the beauty of their leaves.
However, some species require at least six hours of direct sunlight every day. While others live very well in the shade or penumbra (which is not dark).
Find out your plant’s preference and place it where it works best. Flowering plants usually need more sun than foliage. Observe and test the locations where the plant fits best.
Every living being needs water apart from light. So don’t forget to water your little plants. Of course, some require more frequent watering, while others, such as succulents and cacti, resist longer periods of scarcity.
Another important care: water the plants. Discover the most suitable fertilizer for the species you are growing and make the fertilization process regular. Pruning is also very important for the plant. Do not cut the leaves when you need them, this guarantees the plant strength and vitality. Some species have the right time of year to prune. Check this too.
Besides, it is only to enjoy the beauty of these beautiful beings.
