It can be anything: and a shelf on the wall and shelf, hanging near the window-type swing. It should be borne in mind that the higher the plant will be put, the longer they have to be hanging whip, otherwise flowers just will not be seen.

Preparing for the interchange of plants
If you decide to spend at his house a large-scale resettlement of flowers to new places, decide first what conditions - temperature, light, humidity - is, in the corner of the apartment where you are going to expand its activities, and what are their possible adjustment.

Everyone knows that the best place for flowers - at the window about a well-lit by the sun or a fluorescent lamp wall. Natural lighting at the top of the room is always worse than the outside of the window. So here it is necessary to place the least light-loving plants. Care should be taken to extremes of temperature and air flow arising during ventilation or air conditioning is turned on. Plants do not like extreme conditions.
Adjusts to lighting
We have said that at the top of a better place hanging plants. To this we must add, that if you put the plant up, the pots should ensure maximum stability. This can be done by weighting vases counterweights. First of all, the measure refers to a rather weighty Araceae, which, incidentally, are great room conditions.

For the most popular varieties of asparagus and asparagus bristly gustotsvetkovy species Meier and Sprenger. They are undemanding in care and very beautiful, however, require a well-lit room. In winter, the plant should be rearranged in a cool place with a temperature of 10-16 ° C +, and if the temperature is higher, then cover it further.
Hoya and tseropegii interior
The name "waxy ivy", under which this plant was known to the people, now almost not mentioned. Indeed, many cultivars have very different leaves and flowers, among which are slightly velvety and strongly pubescent, shiny and pretty and thin. They are nothing like Hoya fleshy, with its "wax" leaves.

The length of the shoots in different species varies greatly, sometimes reaching one and a half meters.
Ferns in the interior
Luxury branched ferns with carved, delicate leaves are very popular as a houseplant. The most common ferns - all species of Nephrolepis. Among them are small, within half a meter, and large, and not very capricious.

Exotic ferns platycerium first grown on loose substrates in pots and then transplanted into blocks of branches or driftwood, enclosing under roots or peat moss. Plants are attached to the unit mesh or scaffold. Watering is carried out by immersing the plant in a container of water. You can "bathe" in his bath by pouring him a few liters of water. After such a bath it is necessary to leave the plant in the bathroom to glass excess water and then ferns return to his seat. These epiphytic ferns as davallia, ligodium and polipodium, also good as ample plants in the interior. Especially beautiful it looks in the basket. They are not capricious, but good care feel much better. Do not forget that the epiphytic baskets substrate dries quickly, so you need to monitor its humidity. The desired humidity is provided by spraying.
For collectors as interesting
On the shelves at the top can grow some species of the family Gesneriaceae. The most popular of them - Saintpaulia. But for the top growing suitable than the usual standard outlet with a short stem, and those that hang from the pot a quarter of a meter or more. If we talk about the flowering basket plant, the episcia - the most elegant of them. These indoor plants in the interior of the apartment looked great. Beautifully painted, sometimes with a folded surface, velvety leaves shine brightly in the sun or shimmer and twinkle in diffused light. Gorgeous and alsobiya gvozdikotsvetnaya. Small dark-green rosette of small velvety leaves and large white flowers tubular shape with fringe on the petals immediately attract attention.
Even some representatives of this kind - and Columna aeschynanthus. But it is heavy and large plants, requiring properly secured. They are light-requiring.

Ginury very fond of light and easy to carry, even in direct sunlight, provided good ventilation. Therefore, with the onset of summer and until the autumn, they can decorate the balcony of the composition. But on the south windowsill summer it is too hot - do not keep them at this time right next to the glass. Pot with a plant can be put on an overhead shelf, hanging from the ceiling near the window.

In the winter, many potted plants are moved from the balcony on the window sills, but there they often sorely lacking space. Instead put them close to each other, place the houseplants on beautiful shelves and stand or simply hang on the wall. On the windowsill, located above the radiator, from which rises a stream of dry hot air, feel uncomfortable plants such as kolumneya, Hoya and tsissus. From dry air turn brown edges and tips of the leaves. These plants are better placed next to a window, for example, columnar flower boxes on a shelf or in a ring-holder is attached to the wall.

It is possible to place a composition of dried flowers. In order not to dirty the walls, put in the basket liner made of waterproof material or place it directly in the plant pots.
Wooden shelves with beautiful carvings - a great option for accommodation in the house of ample plants that do not require bright light, such as ivy. A stationary metal construction shelter several plants in small pots. Beautiful forged shelves can be mounted not only on a wall but also on the window or on the ceiling.
