Soil with good light is one of the important factors for successful indoor plantings. You should also consider placing your new plantings where the sunlight can hit it directly. It is very important that when you are planting inside the house, you should choose a location that gets direct sunlight or at least 8 hours every day. Some plants need a little sun and others require partial shade or a partially shaded area.
For example, ficus is an excellent houseplant if you place it in a sunny window sill but you have to remember that it does not do well in direct sunlight as it will slowly die. It is best planted in a partially shaded spot that gets around 8 hours of sunlight. Other popular houseplants include clematis, gladioli, Japanese spurge, hostas, salvia and zinnias. Clematis will grow quite large and mature in around ten years. Gladioli and Japanese spurge both need a lot of sunlight.
The other consideration when planting inside the home is to consider what time of year is best to get a flowering plant such as ficus. If you have a window facing south, be sure to place your flowering houseplant in that spot during the strongest sunshine during this time of year. Ficus will usually bloom during the fall season and may have leaves on the ground by the first week of March.
An air purifying plant such as the lilac flower bulb is also highly recommended as another way to ensure you are getting a high quality indoor plant to grow indoors. An air purifying plant like this will help regulate the amount of oxygen and moisture that is in your house. Your indoor plants will not take up too much space inside the home and you will have fewer insects in the home because of this. It will also make your house smell nicer and be more inviting to visitors. Many people add indoor plants to their decor to improve the indoor air quality. A water garden or small fountain may work great as another way to improve the indoor air quality.
Another consideration is to use a non-toxic indoor air cleaner that will remove any existing air quality problems such as mold or odors. You can purchase an air cleaner at most home improvement stores for under $100. These products typically take up very little space and do a great job of removing any existing indoor air quality problems. Make sure to check and see if the air cleaner you are considering buying is certified to kill dust mites and odors.
Planting inside home has its advantages and it can save you a lot of money over time. Just be aware of the type of conditions your houseplant needs to survive. Remember to provide a good amount of sunlight and water and your houseplant will be healthy for years to come.
