Regret living in a flat and not being able to dedicate yourself to your dream garden which you have mentally designed in every detail? We have enclosed in the following lines some of the many apartment garden ideas that can help you create the much dreamt garden and some examples of apartment plants that make you feel like you are in the middle of nature and that do not require excessive attention.
You need to choose the right flowers for indoor gardening; this means plants that can grow well in different locations. Some of the plants that should be in your list of apartment garden ideas are: peace lily, croton, polka dot plant, cast iron plant, bonsai tree, pepperomia, neon pothos, snake plant, money tree, etc. You can keep an ivy plant on the balcony and you can direct its growth using threads. When you begin to notice that it extends more than it should, you can remove some of its shoots.
Ficus Benjamina is easily recognized due to its leaves edged with white. You can transform it into a miniature tree cutting its canopy in a round shape. When it has the necessary conditions, it grows pretty fast, so you have to move it into a bigger and bigger container.
Another of the apartment garden ideas that will help you grow your own vegetable garden or just a flower garden (or any type of garden you want) is using the right containers. Using the right containers can help you save time and you do not have to make a watering schedule and arrange your life according to this watering schedule. Apartment residents should opt for a self-watering container with a reservoir that holds an adequate quantity of water so that the soil has enough moisture without being constantly watered.
Balconies and patios are perfect places for grow plants. However, one of the best apartment garden ideas before buying any plant is to determine how much sun the plants in your space will get. Home decorating magazines can also provide you with aesthetic and practical inspiration for creating your apartment garden; there are many styles and themes you can adopt, but it’s important to choose a homogenous style for a small space, otherwise it can look to disorganized, or occupy more space than necessary. Determine the amount of light in spring or summer when the surrounding trees and other plants are full of leaves for an accurate evaluation. Full sun is considered 8 hours of direct sunlight per day, partial shade if there are 4-6 hours of sunlight per day and shade if there are less than 4 hours of sunlight. Depending on the sunlight that your space receives, opt for the right plants. Save some bright windowsills for flowers that need a lot of sun. Some plants that have multicolored or bright foliage (for example croton or polka dot plant) that develop the best color when they are placed near a bright window, without being kept in direct sunlight.
