11 Indoor Gardening Tips
Make your home more enjoyable with a few plants with bright colors and create the indoor garden of your dreams.
In winter, if you look around, the landscape could not be colder. The trees still don't have leaves, shades of green are void on the ground and your house probably has less life than the Sahara.
Here are some tips to bring more life to your home with the help of some flowers and plants.
1 - Always choose plants that can survive a harsh winter
There aren't many plants that can survive with low light and air. Still, here are some plants that can thrive even under the harshest conditions: peace lily, dracaena, philodendro, photos and cast iron plant.
2 - Force the flowers to bloom before spring
Cut some branches of trees such as cherry about a month before the time of her bloom and bring the branches to your home. With the temperature difference, the blossoms will bloom earlier. Keep the branches in water and fertilizer for plants.
3 - Choose plants with dual function
A pleasant and attractive plant, full of flowers can also be used to purify the air in your home. Studies conducted by NASA found that indoor plants can remove many chemical pollutants from the air. Plants such as palms and red bamboo are very good to make the air in your home cleaner and pure.
4 - Enjoy your garden for herbs and spices
Choose a ledge of a window to pick up more than 6 hours of sun a day and plant some of your favorite herbs. Parsley, coriander, oregano, basil, etc... Apart from making your home more green, you will be able to use these plants in your favorite dishes.
5 - Cultivate a garden covered with glass
Enhance your home with a terrarium. Any box with glass lid serves to start. Create a layer of drainage from coal and suitable land, add a layer of gravel and cultivate slow-growing plants that like warm, moist conditions. Try your luck with dwarf ferns. Finalize your mini-garden with a few decorative rocks, close the lid and go.
6 - Create optical illusions
Use your skills as a florist to create an arrangement of silk flowers. We are not speaking of artificial plants that were worn in years 80 and 90. Nowadays the selection of artificial plants is very good and very real. If you place your arrangements in strategic locations with difficult access, nobody will be able to touch them and see the difference.
7 - Plant a tree

The cheerful atmosphere of a room in your house with flowers that retain their color after drought. If you've never dried flowers, go to your local florist and ask for directions.

Then just fill the empty spaces with flowers and smaller plants.
