Indoor plants


It is truly extraordinary to see how a little green is able to illuminate and transform an apartment. The plants also have the ability to purify the air and make the home healthier and at the same time more welcoming and lively. Therefore, there are many reasons for incorporating indoor plants into your home. Growing houseplants can be a real challenge for many, especially if you don't have in-depth knowledge of gardening or an innate green thumb. To make plant growth easier, here is a list of the most suitable species to grow at home!

Cactus



If they can survive in the desert, they will surely grow even in your apartment! Cacti are the best species to cultivate at home as they have very little need to be watered when the soil is particularly dry. They can also be left alone for days and you will not have to give up the weekend away to take care of them. It will be enough to choose the most suitable position for their growth, usually in front of a window to ensure our plants receive the sunlight they need.

Ficus



Among the most loved and cultivated plants at home, we undoubtedly find ficus. It is a species that can best adapt to the internal climatic conditions of the apartment and is able to make the house more cheerful and welcoming thanks to the touch of green that the ficus offers to the house. These are plants that prefer indirect sunlight; for this reason it will be necessary to place our ficus in the corners of our rooms in such a way that the sun's rays entering through the window do not directly hit the leaves. Water the plants every two or three days and give them fertilizer every year. There are numerous varieties of ficus present on the market, it will suffice to opt for the one most suited to you and able to attract your attention!

Generalities indoor plants: Dry flowers



The life of the flowers can be, so to speak, "lengthened", thanks to the use of drying techniques, which allow the conservation of plants and flowers for a long period of time. The beauty of fresh flowers is undoubtedly indisputable. However, even dried flowers lend themselves well as elements of decoration and decor of the environments in which we live, especially if placed in graceful compositions. Because the flowers and, in general, the vegetables, even once dried, maintain their characteristics as much as possible (color, fragrance, ...) and are preserved for a long time, it is necessary to adopt a series of measures. First of all, it is good to remember that only some types of plants lend themselves to drying; among these we find the rose, the laurel, the mimosa, the ivy, the lavender, the daisy, the heather, the acanthus; the flowers, leaves and plants that are to be dried must be collected at a time of year (summer or autumn) and rather dry; water and humidity, in fact, besides making the flower more fragile, compromise its drying; the compositions must be various: the plants used must have a similar consistency between them, but it is necessary to use all the parts of the plant (not only the flowers). It is equally important to create a certain balance between the different components, so that the composition is harmonious as a whole
