How to create an indoor garden and which plants are suitable for it?
An indoor garden is a special place for relax and retreat. It can be arranged even in the smallest apartment and you will enjoy the freshness of Nature at home. For a small indoor garden, low plants which grow slowly are really suitable as they do not require a lot of space. Larger plants must be replanted and will require more space for a healthy growth. When choosing the plants for your indoor garden, you need to make sure that they need the same environment and conditions in terms of water, light and temperature.

What you need to know when planning an indoor garden
The first thing you need to consider when planning an indoor garden is the space. Whether a big or a small garden, the size of the space will define the types of plants for your garden. Light is another important factor for indoor gardens. You need to make sure that the plants get sufficient light otherwise they will not be able to grow as you expect them. The light source should be near the plants but without burning their leaves. Temperature and humidity are also to be considered and require a special attention if you want a healthy garden indoors. If the temperature is too high there is a big chance that the plants would be growing weak. Too cold environment might cause yellowish leaves, which fall off.
Indoor garden – a piece of nature at your home
The design of an indoor garden may be a challenge when it comes to choosing the right plants. You need to make sure that you have suitable planters and pots for your plants. If you wanted a more dynamic composition, try to choose plants that differ in size, appearance and leaf shape. Avoid plants that grow too much as you may be experiencing space problems. In most compositions, the central plants create the overall impression. If you want to use any colorful flowers to make a few color pops they will be a good accent to the green base.
