Plants for each room
Indoor gardening is the cultivation of plants in residential or public premises. Plants that are able to successfully survive and develop in such premises are called indoor plants. Indoor gardening is especially common in countries with a long harsh winter. Most houseplants come from the tropics and subtropics.
Since residential or public premises are characterized by conditions that are more unfavorable for plants than when grown in greenhouses (for example, the lateral direction of light, its small amount, dry air, an abundance of dust, drafts, uneven temperature), to achieve a healthy state and proper development plants used special techniques. Conditions in public and official premises are usually even less favorable than in residential areas, so the most unpretentious houseplants are grown here.
Back in the 80s, the NSSA discovered that some indoor plants know how to filter air and in rooms with such plants the air is much cleaner than in others. We in the editorial office of Shram.kiev.ua suggest creating your air-purifying station from useful indoor plants at home and choosing the right plants for each of the rooms in the apartment.
