How to keep Plants and Indoor Water Features Healthy and Beautiful

Indoor landscaping can be an excellent way to keep your interior design looking fresh and clean. Whether it’s a charming miniature water fountain flowing in your living room or an herb garden blooming in your laundry room window, taking bits of gardening concepts typically seen outdoors and bringing them into your home can definitely change the entire feeling of your décor. However, since plants were designed to thrive best outdoors, it is important to follow a few steps to keep your indoor flora looking fine.

Monitor Incoming Sunlight

Unlike outdoor plants, which often receive sunlight regardless of where they’re planted, indoor plants can only receive natural sunlight if they’re placed in a window; for plants which thrive best in full sunlight, a window that receives sunlight during the majority of the day (and not just during the evening sunset) is optimal. On the hand other, some herbs and certain species of creeping and low-light house plants will react negatively if placed in direct sunlight. These plants will do best when potted in dim places with only occasional sunlight—the ideal places for these are hallways, desks, and in semi-dark rooms.

Check Soil Dampness

Indoor plants are typically grown in pots. As such, the amount of soil surrounding their roots is extremely limited when compared to the soil around plants that are grown outdoors. While some plants enjoy a very moist soil-water content ratio, many plants can succumb to root rot if their roots are constantly subject to very moist conditions. Or course, overly dry dirt can also kill a plant, so be sure to research every indoor plant you have to see what conditions are ideal for each. Keep the soil dampness of your potted plants optimal by regularly checking it—any overly damp plants should either be watered less or placed into pots with adequate drainage.

Regulate Indoor Temperatures

Indoor plants, like all other plants, grow best at certain temperatures. Fortunately, it’s a lot easier to regulate the surrounding temperature of your indoor garden than it is for an outdoor one. Again, not all plants grow best at the same temperatures, so be sure to research your specific varieties and set your heater or air conditioner controls accordingly.

Overall, even though keeping plants within your home certainly requires a good bit of work on your part, it’s still a decorating choice that you’ll probably be grateful you employed in the end. Additionally, unlike with outdoor gardening, indoor gardening shouldn’t be faced with the same struggle against small animals and other pests, perhaps making indoor gardening even easier than outdoor plant growing in some respects.
