10 kinds of plants suitable for family planting

Green plants have always been a very important element in home life. The use of green plants can create a warm and comfortable home atmosphere. However, due to the lack of indoor air circulation, high temperature, insufficient illumination and other factors, not all plants are suitable for indoor planting. Today, let's talk about 10 kinds of green plants and planting precautions that are most suitable for indoor planting!


  1. Money tree

The leaves of the money tree are thick, dark green and oily green on the surface. Although it is a species from Africa, it also has strong adaptability in the shade. Therefore, when cultivated at home, insufficient illumination will only slow down its growth rate and will not affect the full color of its leaves.


Planting precautions: money tree is a very good plant to take care of. It is naturally dry and only needs to be watered once or twice a week. If the leaves on the top fall off, it is a warning that the mud is too dry. However, do not accumulate water in the basin, which may lead to the decay and necrosis of the whole tree from the root.

Tiger tail orchid is also known as "mother-in-law's words" in Europe, implying that its slender leaves are like mother-in-law's endless instructions. Tiger tailed orchid is native to Africa and the Middle East. It has very low requirements for illumination and humidity, so it is suitable for any type of people. Planting precautions: the tail orchid only needs to be watered every two to three weeks. If the soil in the 1 gallon pot is still wet, it can be watered later.

Indian banyan likes shade by nature and needs to avoid direct sunlight. If you want to make the corridor more green, Indian banyan is definitely the best choice, because it doesn't like light or heat.

After the soil in the basin is completely dry, it can be watered.


  1. Fleshy

Corsica Mint is also called angel tears. It can be used for greening in all areas of the home, both on the shady side and on the sunny side. Just pay attention to avoid direct sunlight for a long time. Corsica Mint is native to Sardinia in southern Italy and belongs to vanilla family.


Precautions for planting: Corsica Mint belongs to the vanilla family, and its stems and leaves are relatively thin. Therefore, in terms of daily care, it is necessary to maintain the temperature and humidity of the soil and avoid being too dry or wet for a long time. Therefore, the most ideal irrigation method is to add water directly in the bottom basin to let the water naturally penetrate into the soil.


  1. Xiao Zhuyu

Xiao zhutaro is produced in tropical rain forest. It is naturally fond of light, but it can also accept areas with low illumination. Planting precautions: compared with other plants, the daily care of Xiao zhutaro is more complex. Watering too much is easy to cause rhizome rot, and watering too little will lead to withered and yellow leaves.


  1. Turtle backed bamboo

When listing indoor landscape plants, of course, you can't forget turtle backed bamboo, a tropical plant from South America, because its unique shape of leaves has always been loved by everyone. The more sufficient the illumination, the faster it grows. Planting precautions: the daily care of turtle backed bamboo is somewhat similar to that of Xiao zhutaro. Watering once a week or two can regularly clean the dirt on the leaf surface.


  1. White crane taro

If there is a flower that can bloom in the dark, it - must be white crane taro. Its leaf veins are slender, and its petals are pure white. It has a strong contrast with the dark green leaves, and its nature likes Yin. Planting precautions: Although white crane taro likes shade, its requirements for the environment are actually very high, especially the humidity of the surrounding environment. Too dry space will turn the whole plant yellow.


Plants are required to be conducive to water and fertilizer conservation, good drainage and good permeability of soil, and according to different types, they are required to have a certain pH. Most plants like slightly acidic or neutral, so they often use different soil, which are mixed and prepared after sterilization, such as sandy soil, soil, biogas mud, humus soil, peat soil, vermiculite, perlite, etc.


Plants should be watered frequently during the growth period and high temperature season, but too much water should also be avoided, which will stop the growth of roots due to hypoxia and even wither. All plants should periodically use a large amount of water to filter out the saline and alkaline components of fertilizer, and select well drained plastic plant pots.


Flower fertilizer is mainly nitrogen (the extract of soybean cake and rapeseed cake), which can promote the prosperity of branches and leaves; Phosphorus (fish scales, fish intestines, meat bones and other animal debris are fermented into black juice by adding water), which can promote bright flowers and plump fruits; Potassium (plant ash) can promote strong roots and strong stems. Apply more fertilizer in spring and summer, less in autumn and stop in winter.
