Ten keys for plants to become the queens of your home

1.- Irrigation management

Water is one of the most basic needs of plants so it is very important to know the irrigation needs of each plant. You should assume that with the arrival of heat, they will need more water. In case you are going away for a few days, it would be very practical to use irrigation gel to ensure plants receive hydration.

2.- Placing plants in high light areas

Light is another indispensable requirement for the survival of plants thanks to its process of photosynthesis. It is very important to know the type of irradiation that each variety requires in order to place them in a suitable place.

3.- Use guides to monitor their growth

In the case of some species, such as climbing plants, it is advisable to foresee their future growth and to direct their expansion in favour of the aesthetic effect that they are intended to create.

4.- Selection of pots 

Choosing a suitable container (size, shape, colour, design ... etc.) for each plant enhances its beauty in the decoration so we must resort to good taste and a decorative approach.

5.- Protection of furniture and wooden elements 

Plants need moisture for their livelihood and wood is a very sensitive material to water. If plants are placed on this type of material, it should be protected.

6.- Placing plants on the terrace

The terrace is the most appropriate place in the house to have plants, however, they can lose their appeal and even grow too tall. The fewer plants you place in your terrace the more attractive it will look. 

7.- Place the plants in safe areas

It is not a good idea to place plants near heating devices or in areas where there is strong draught. Plants are also susceptible to damage by pets and small children.

8.- Take advantage of shelves

Shelves are ideal for placing pots on them. They can be combined with books and other ornaments as well as plants. In this way they gain prominence and achieve an attractive decorative effect.

9.- Arrangement of plants at different heights

Placing the plants at different heights and in a dispersed way in the rooms allows them to be integrated into the decoration and creates a very pleasant and colourful atmosphere.

10.- Explore the wild beauty of plants

The elegance, beauty and uniqueness of most plants tend to reside in their own nature. It is, therefore, not a good idea to change their environment or setting.
