Brings Life and Interest to Room with Low Light Houseplants

Brings Life and Interest to Room with Low Light Houseplants

We often have plenty of space in our homes for plants, but oftentimes those spaces are away from windows in a low light situation. And we often search for plants that will fit into that location in our home. A few of the plants that you can use in a low light situation are a Chinese coffee plant, or a Chinese evergreen; a green pothos; or a peace lily. And all of these plants come from an understory where there would be larger plants growing up over them. And since most of these plants are the tropical rainforest or swampy area plants, they like to be a little bit on the moist side.

Most of them would be better off if the soil were more like a wrung-out sponge, rather than allowing them to dry out like we do in our lawns or turf. So, if you keep them on the moist side and away from forced air as well as bright sunlight, you should have fewer brown spots on the leaves and be able to enjoy those plants in your home for much longer.

Because these are from a swampy area you want to have a growing medium that is high in peat moss so it will help to hold moisture in it. And as that organic matter begins to break down it will release nutrients to the plants to take up. Once a lot of that organic material is used up in the soil, you may want to supplement with fertilizers. If you’re looking for other options for low light plants, you can check with your local Extension office or local florist.

 

There are a wide range of houseplants available in shops or can be grown in your own gardens

Houseplants are one of the quickest and least expensive ways of brings life and interest to a room. A splash of green instantly revives a rather tired scheme, and flowering plants provide a lively range of colors. There are few design rules about where to put plants and flowers look good almost anywhere, as long as they are not in the way of everyday activities. You should treat large floor-level plants as focal points, making full use of your lighting to show them off to best effect.

Some houseplants need less light than others, but normal artificial lighting is no substitute for the natural daylight that all plants need. Medium-sized plants can be placed on furniture, but there are alternatives, hanging baskets, wall-hung planters, stands or window shelves. Small plants, such as African violets need placing with care. They usually look and grow best grouped in a box or on a stand. Make sure you match a plant to its growing conditions.

Houseplants and flower help bring the garden indoors and add a human touch to your decorative scheme. The delicate structure of leaves and flowers also helps to soften hard outlines of modern furniture. With care and frequent deadheading, they will last a lot longer than cut flowers, as long as they get sufficient sunlight at some time during the day. Choose plants with a variety of shapes and colors and try to include some trailing plants to break up horizontal lines.

Houseplants bring a fresh, lively look to a bathroom and ferns, ivies, bromeliads, and epiphytes thrive in low light levels. Maidenhair ferns are delicate and are unsuitable for draughty windows. You can also buy plastic hanging baskets with drip trays attached. Cacti and succulents need plenty of direct sunlight; ferns and palms survive in the shade. To avoid drips, stand plants in saucers or on shallow, gravet-filled plastic trays and keep permanently moist.
