Even if you do not have a lot of room, you can create a beautiful garden in your home. Here are a few tips and tricks to get your indoor garden started.
If you have been looking for a way to brighten up the inside of your home with unique colors and different textures, then creating an indoor garden may be just what you are looking for. Plants and flowers can add a relaxing and even homey feel to any space that you choose. They can also help to naturally cleanse and purify your air and home. Any plants you pick will be based on your own tastes and ideas of what you want your space to look and feel like. You can choose any plants you like, it all really depends on how much space you have to work with and what you are looking for.
There are few things to keep in mind and take care of when you are creating an indoor garden. Below are a few tips to help you long with the creation of your new space.
Light is very important to any plant you choose, you probably already knew that. However, they also need shade too. Making sure that your plants are receiving enough of both is very important. Picking plants that will do well in the environment you have them will work best. Reading the tags that come on the plant closely so you know what their sun and shade needs are will ensure that your plants thrive and do well in your home.
Also, do not over or under water your plants. Again reading the tag that comes on the plant closely and following the instructions will tell you exactly what you need to know about your plant and their needs. Over watering can create bugs and disease with your plant, also there is root rot from too much water and the plant not being able to use all of it and drain all of it out.
When you first get the plant home, it will look good for awhile and then the leaves may brown and fall off. Many times the nurseries fertilize them to make them grow quickly, so if you would like them to keep growing that way, then you will need to fertilize them also. Choosing a fertilizer will depend on the plant and again reading the tag on the plant will make this decision easier.
Picking containers that will go well with your already established decor and that will fit the plants you have chosen. There are so many different containers available to purchase or you can even use containers from around your home. As long as there are adequate holes in the bottom for water drainage, any container large enough for your plant will work. This is the fun part of indoor container gardening, you have so many choices and ways to create your garden.
Container gardening is also a little easier than creating a full blown outdoor garden. You can start small until you get the hang of it and then add more as time goes on. Or you can just keep your garden small and easy to manage. You do have a lot of options with container gardening.
However, you decide to create your garden, you have many options and choices to choose from. There are so many ways to reuse household items and make an interesting and unique garden for your home.
