Hints And Tips For Interior Plantscaping

Adding live plants to the interior of a home or office adds a touch of color and an element of life to any design. If you want your plants to remain healthy, you should follow some basic guidelines for interior plantscaping. Although some plants thrive in dry, hot climates, most plants prefer humid environments with a consistent temperature ranging between 60 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, which means they are comfortable in most home and office climates. Some plants require direct sunlight, and their leaves will turn yellow and die if they do not get several hours of sunlight per day; however, many common houseplants grow well with artificial light. Just make sure you monitor your plants leaves to assure they are getting enough light.

Plants need proper soil preparation as part of regular interior plantscaping as well. A good blend of soil mixed with other less dense materials, such as peat moss, will allow for drainage in the soil and improve root growth. Fertilizers should be added to the soil as well to provide nutrients for the plants. The nutrients are released a small amount at a time with each watering, so more fertilizer will need to be added about once a month during the plant’s growing season.
