Indoor Gardening - How to step up Beautiful Garden inside your Home

Updated on March 11, 2017

Indoor house plants

It is not so simple to make a garden in these days where people live in flats and multi story apartments. But if you have interest in anything and have a strong will to do what you like, it is possible to use our terrace or sit out to make a garden. These gardens can not only make our home beautiful but they can also play a vital role in purifying the air inside our home. It will be much better for our health and our mind if we could use homemade vegetables.

It is our choice to take the decision whether we are going to make a vegetables or flowers in our garden. The number of plants can be decided according to the total area of the place that we decide to use for our garden. It will be not good if we place lot of pots in a small sit out. In this case we can hang four or five pots from our roof, and this will also add beauty to our sit out.

How to grow indoor plants

We can use any kind of containers for growing plants. Using dumped plastic and ceramic containers can cut the cost a lot. We just have to put some holes on the bottom so that excess water can flow out through them.

The next step is to get good fertile soil. Here we will have to get help from our friends or relatives who have land. It is very important to get fertile and good soil for planting our garden.

We can start the arrangements by mixing sand soil and compost in an equal ratio. After that we have to fill the container with this. We have to fill the container a little loose (Do not press or fill tight).

We have to be careful when we fill the sand in the containers. Remember that air circulation and dampness is very essential for the healthy growth of roots. Germination of seeds is the next step. We can use a single container to germinate all the plants and seeds and then transplant it to different pots or containers. We can grow potato, chilly or ladies finger on our terrace through this method. If we are up to flower gardening, we can grow bougainvillea, rose or Lillie like this. But it will be good if we have a much larger terrace for them.

If we are planning a garden inside our home , then decorator leaf plants will be fine. We can grow palms like Areca or Caryota if we have a place with a little sunlight. Put them in the outdoors for a week in a gap of two or three weeks and they will be fine. We can also have begonia, cordiline, ferns, fichus etc inside our home .

It is now very often that people who have big outdoor gardens even decorate there indoors with pretty plants. We can arrange the pots and plants according to the size of our rooms in our flats. Do not worry about your front yard; it is now possible to get the beauty of a garden inside you home.

Bonsais in your indoors.

The tree dwarfs in flower pots are taking their places in our houses. When dwarf human beings make us feel sad and disturbed, these tree dwarfs make us happy with their presence. But bringing up a bonsai is not that much easy. Patience and years of care are the only way to succeed in this. But these days it is also possible to buy bonsais from a shop. Even if the cost is a little bit high, people are ready to bring the greenery and freshness of bonsais inside their homes.

When the huge concrete architecture beauties around us gets a little boring, and when it had become not so easy to get a little bit greenery for your eyes, the new generation is finding a way out from this by growing the nature inside their bed rooms and living rooms. The old generation is blaming the new generation for bringing the greenery of nature inside their home like they did for celebrations and flowers. Let’s hope that till the naturalists’ starts protesting against the bonsai culture, we could have mangoes, oranges and lime inside our home
