Placing of plants
Mar 16, 2018
You can practically grow many famous vegetables in a room, but you should follow the following rules: place vegetable and fruit plants in accordance with their biological requirements for environmental factors.
Each plant has its own requirements. For example, the best for plants should be considered those rooms that face south, east and west. On the southern, sunny windows, which the sun illuminates almost all day, tomatoes, cucumbers, aubergines, peppers, parsley, dill will perfectly grow, and all citrus fruits, pomegranates, figs, coffee, feijoa and others will grow from perennial fruit plants.
The windows facing the west, illuminated by the sun in the afternoon, are suitable for cultivating citrus, pomegranate, fig, feijoa, and their vegetable crops - cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet peppers, eggplant, fizalis, salads.
On oriental oriental windows in a season when the sun does not yet heat much, it is possible to grow spicy green cultures, all types of onion and leafy vegetable plants. If there is a shadow in your rooms that grows near the house of trees or tall houses, then the most suitable plants for these rooms will be laurel laurel, laurel cherry, tea, medlar of Japan, and from vegetable-spicy - taste plants, leafy mustard, all salads, parsley anddill.
A very difficult time for indoor plants occurs in the winter. Near the heaters, the temperature is excessively high, and the humidity of the air is very low. Plants can hardly tolerate such a regime, they often temporarily wither, and sometimes they also discard leaves.
To increase the humidity, we recommend spraying plants with warm water several times a day. If the buds begin to dry out on the plant, the flowers and the ends of the leaves are wrinkled, it means that the moistening did not help, and the plant should be placed in more favorable conditions.
In winter, artificial lighting is recommended for vegetable crops. For lighting, it is best to use fluorescent lamps. At the same time, the optimal output is 400 watts per square meter. Incandescent lamps with a power of 100 - 200 W can be used for forcing parsley, celery, watercress, dill, green onions and other vegetable plants that are not required for light. Lamps suspended above plants at a height of 50-60 cm.
Electro-lighting of vegetable plants accelerates their maturation and increases their yield by 20-25%.
In summer, we recommend taking out many plants on outdoor terraces, verandas, balconies or in the garden. Here we must remember that not all of them tolerate rain, fog. Therefore, with abundant rain, they must be covered with something.
It should be remembered that during frosts, plants standing on the windowsills can freeze when opening the windows. Therefore, when airing an apartment, they should either be rearranged, or at this time covered with paper or 2-layer gauze.
Arrangement in an apartment of fruit, vegetable and flower crops is a matter of taste for every person and every family. They should harmonize not only with each other, but with the surrounding environment in the room - furniture, wallpaper and paintings.
Beautifully grouped in rooms, plants can create bright and unexpected effects. For this, lemons, oranges, kinkans, laurel cherries, and tea are most suitable. A perfect addition to these plants is creeping or dipping ivy, Tradescantia, clematis and others.
We advise you, when composing these or other compositions, to group plants by their color, size, size. In this case, you should specifically select plants for large and small rooms. Large plants mostly suppress the space of small rooms, and they seem even smaller. For small rooms are good standard compositions, consisting of small plants that are in a vertical position on the corner stand. It is best to have three or four plants on it.
In large rooms or offices, large, solitary plants such as lemons, figs, laurel noble, orange, mandarin, tea, and others look good. In such rooms, the type of composition is interesting, where in the background there are large plants: pomegranates, palms, citrus, and ahead on the catwalks, in flowerpots - flower or garden crops, such as green, tomatoes, nasturtium.
In flower compositions of considerable interest are ampel plants, they decorate windows and walls, balconies and verandas with their greenery and flowers, fill an empty vertical space. They learned how to place them in a variety of ways - in hanging baskets, pots, special vases.
So, there are many opportunities for maintaining the normal vegetation of plants in your apartments. This is the establishment of additional lighting in the rooms, increasing air humidity, installing pots on the windowsills on special wooden or polystyrene stands, creating a shadow in the summer or protecting from cold air in the winter.
