Plants for each room
Indoor gardening - growing plants in residential or public areas. Plants that are able to successfully survive and grow in such premises are called indoor plants. Indoor gardening is especially common in countries with long harsh winters. Most indoor plants come from the tropics and subtropics.
Since residential or public premises are characterized by conditions more unfavorable to 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.
Back in the 80s, the NSSA found that some indoor plants can filter the air and in rooms with such plants the air is much cleaner than in others. In the editorial office of Shram.kiev.ua, we propose to create our own air cleaning station from useful indoor plants at home and choose the right plants for each of the rooms in the apartment.
