• General on growing different cultures in the house

    Is it possible to create a garden and a vegetable garden in an apartment or on a balcony, veranda, in a room conservatory, in a conservatory or in a window greenhouse? It turns out that it is possible, if appropriate regimes of light, heat and moisture are created for plants, to correctly choose cultures and varieties, methods and methods of their cultivation. Many types of indoor plants were born and formed in the tropical and subtropical regions of the globe. Therefore, all of them are characterized by high temperatures in the growing season and relatively low winter hardiness.

    There are a number of regions of the globe with a dry climate( deserts, steppes).The climate of these latitudes refers to the transition zones, all the periods of the year are clearly marked here.

    Finally, there are plants coming from the middle zone, where the climate is characterized by a short summer and a long winter. These differences cover the vast territories of Russia, North America, and Eurasia. The rhythm of plant life here is quite different and unlike other climatic zones of the globe.

    Therefore, considering all the diversity of ecological and climatic conditions of the globe, it should be noted that plants for many millennia, adapting to them, developed the appropriate protective properties( winter peace, suspension of growth in hot weather, dropping of leaves in the dry period), allowing them freelylive and reproduce.

    Plants of these regions, falling into conditions unusual for them, apartments, verandas, balconies, loggias, greenhouses, in their majority become unattractive, sick and dying. Therefore, in order that they normally live in the premises, develop and even blossom and bear fruit, they need to create the appropriate regimes to which they are accustomed at home( light, heat, different length of the day, the corresponding substrates, soil and air humidity and.).Thanks to the development of scientific and technological progress, a person has learned for his pets - indoor plants - to arrange conditions close to those in their home countries. In many houses, cottages, cottages, special greenhouses for winter gardens are being built, and for rooms and balconies, humidifiers, artificial lighting lamps, insulated window sills, tropical shop windows, and greenhouses are sold, where it is possible to grow and multiply the most thermophilic plants without much difficulty.

    In addition, scientists from Russia and many other countries have introduced new varieties and hybrids of indoor plants, more stable and unpretentious to the conditions of the premises.
