Indoor Plants FAQ
What Are Indoor Plants?
Common house plants, such as ferns, orchids, and snake plants are indoor house plants. Any plant that can thrive indoors can actually be classified as an indoor plant. They don’t always need bright, direct sunlight to grow.
Speaking of growth, pot plants also don’t tend to overgrow their spaces. They won’t necessarily turn out to be huge potted plants if you don’t want to. That’s why they do need trimming and pruning - take note that applies to some more than others.
If you don’t like high-maintenance plants, there are tons out there! Some are pretty chill and just need weekly checks to make sure they’re still thriving. If you like a challenge, then there’s more out there for you if you choose to seek them.
One thing to note about inward plants is that some of them may be harmful to kids and even pets. The great thing about shopping at Bloombox Club is that we’ve taken the liberty of indicating any potential toxicity level on the product pages!
How To Grow Plants Inside a Room?
To simplify plant care, all you need to do is water plants as needed, groom your green friends, and give them as much light as needed.
Placing all your similar pot plants in one area could be ideal. If you know that all your bedroom plants only need watering once a week, then you can save time! Areas with convenient access to water, like the kitchen, can be an area for plants that need frequent watering!
Grooming your plants just means going in and snipping off dead or burnt leaves. It also means clearing the topsoil from any dead bugs or fallen leaves, if any. Some plants require more grooming than others so do consider that before getting an indoor house plant! If you do happen to notice your plant outgrowing its home - i.e. its pot, you may need to repot your indoor plant to a bigger space.
A lot of indoor house plants online require indirect sunlight. Usually, they don’t need to be kept outdoors on the patio just to get the light they need. But not all indoor house plants have the same needs so it’s always best to do a little research on your own when you get one.
What Are The Most Popular Plants for Your Room?
Chinese Money Plant
This pet-friendly plant is given its name because of its coin-shaped leaves. It’s quite popular because it is beautiful to look at, but easy to care for - even for budding plant parents!
If you’re looking to buy plants for your room or house such as this one, you do need a bit of luck. This indoor plant is somewhat rare. So, if you happen across one, do consider getting it!
The Aloe vera is a neat little common house plant that’s easy to care for. It’s very recognizable and a perfect example of a decorative plant. It does need some direct sunlight per day, so consider placing it by a window and let it soak up that sun for a few hours.
Take advantage of the many kinds of Aloe vera options to choose from. A lot of stores carry this plant, so you have time to choose one that speaks to you the most.
Snake Plant Laurentii
When you ask veteran houseplant owners for a beginner plant, they’d most likely point out the snake plant. It’s actually not just a big, green, leafy plant that looks great. It’s actually loved for its air-purifying capabilities as well.
Buying pot plants like snake plants should be simple and straightforward. But what you should be looking for is a snake plant that has lush, green leaves. If you notice the leaves to be pale, maybe don’t get that particular one because it may be a sign that the plant isn’t flourishing.
Which Indoor Plant Lives The Longest?
You’ll see succulents popping up every now and then here at Bloombox, and that’s because they tick a lot of boxes - and one of those boxes is that they live long lives (some were recorded to live for a hundred years)! Plus, they’re easy to care for.
Some swear by the soak and dry method when caring for succulents. That’s when you soak the soil with water and only water when the soil dries. Also, it’s quite easy to tell if your succulents need water. Their leaves shrivel up when they’re thirsty!
Which Are The Most Low Maintenance Indoor House Plants?
High up on the list of low-maintenance plants are snake plants, cactus, and aloe - two of which are succulents. Like we said earlier, succulents just tick a lot of boxes! When you buy indoor plants like succulents, you can also consider their size.
There are tons of succulents that you can get for your home. Most likely, you’ll come across small ones that can sit by your windowsill or on your table. But, you can also get bigger ones. There’s no shortage of options when getting his indoor plant.
Which Fertiliser Is Best For Indoor Plants?
Well, organic fertiliser is best! Yes, you can find synthetic fertiliser for inward plants and those aren’t ideal especially when you’ve got pets and children that could potentially paw at your plants.
The best fertiliser also depends on the plants you keep. For now, there are three kinds you can get and they are liquid fertilisers, slow-release fertilisers, and granular fertilisers. Small, potted plants benefit best from slow-release fertilisers. Granular fertilisers are better for repotting or propagating. The slow-release fertilisers are best for more seasoned plant parents as you have to be mindful of when to fertilise your plants.
