Home plants that can survive even in the darkest corner

Растения для темного угла

Since residential or public premises are characterized by conditions more unfavorable for plants than when growing them in greenhouses ( for example, the lateral direction of light, its small amount, dry air, abundance of dust, drafts, uneven temperature ) to achieve a healthy state and proper development plants are used special techniques. Conditions in public and office buildings are usually even less favorable than in residential areas, so the most unpretentious indoor plants are grown here.
