It is difficult to orient the beginner flower garden in the art of floristics and comprehend all the wisdom of such an exciting affair as floriculture. But in this article you will find information on the purchase of flowers and their placement in the house, about the rules of care, transplantation, irrigation and feeding, and other things necessary flower garden.
Where to start the plant selection for the home
Let's take as a gift that you do not have flowers and you are going to buy them. But what are the reasons for choosing flowers?
First, you will appreciate the availability of free time that you can spend on plant care. After all, care for it is not limited to abundant watering, the plant needs and much more. Including just a good attitude. And do not be surprised - the flower is alive, so it's possible to talk with him that most florists do. You also do not interfere, because the flower from a good attitude and tender appetite is better growing and blossoming.
Among the plants, there is also a division into "caste" - aristocrats and commoners, capricious and stoics. The aristocrats require a lot more attention, because they are very capricious, as they are.
So if you are a beginner florist, do not start your "activity" with azalea, orchid, gardenia or streptocarpus. Will come more unpretentious tradeskancy, begonias, gezmaniya or chlorophythum. Moreover, chlorofitum performs not only the role of ornaments, but also as a filter of harmful substances and can clean the air from bacteria. In addition, he does not treat succulents - plants that hold moisture in their stems and leaves, that is, cactus, fowl, epiphillum, nose, also in some way a camel plant.
Chlorophythum - indoor fern - so unpretentious, that can withstand drought, and in general, extreme "flower" conditions. So its unpretentious and beneficial properties make this plant a desirable "resident" in every home. And for a beginner Florist, chlorophythum is a great choice.
What needs lighting
Many early flower growers believe that all plants like the sun and it can not harm them. Maybe even burns. Our indoor plants often came to us "from behind the sea", where they grew up in the jungle. What is the sun? Solid shadowSo most of them grew in thick shadows.
Potted plants are conventionally divided into three groups:
- light-loving plants
- pseudobulb plants
- shade-tolerant plants
This distribution is to a certain extent conditional, and the same plant requires different amounts of lighting, depending on what period of growth it is. But even a conditional separation will help determine which plant is suitable for your home.
Group One - light-loving plants:
- family bromelevыh
- family of succulents - aloe, euphorbia, agave, Haworthia, gasteria, stocks
- herbaceous plants flowering plants
Remember! Love for the light does not involve direct sunlight. They can plant not only burn, but also destroy it.
The second group - pseudosuppressive plants:
- coniferous plants
It should be remembered that pseudo-loving plants still prefer shade, not shade.
Third group - shade-tolerant plants:
- amaranth family
Of course, this list of plants is not exhausted. And remember that division into groups is only conditional. So when choosing a place for plants you should stop at windows that are located east or west as a universal option. When you appreciate your time and accommodation opportunities, go to the store. And choose your flowers based on their preferences and the call of the soul.
