Gardening Indoors

By: Gardener's Supply Company
Multi-level plant stands are perfect for showcasing a collection of houseplants.

Understanding indoor plants
Most avid gardeners don't check their love of plants at the front door. We keep ferns in the bathroom, begonias in the study, a dwarf citrus in the bedroom, pots of rosemary in the kitchen, and seedlings in the basement. Today there are so many interesting plants that can be grown indoors that there's simply no reason for a gardener not to be surrounded by plants all year-round.

Indoor gardening had its first heyday during Victorian times. As plants such as abutilons, palms, and hibiscus were discovered by botanists in remote parts of the world, those who could afford to do so, filled their parlors and conservatories with these exotic beauties.

There was another indoor plant revival during the 1970s, though it was largely confined to foliage plants such as spider plants, Swedish ivy, and ferns. Today, commercial greenhouses offer an eye-popping selection of houseplants to choose from, including orchids, bougainvillea, scented geraniums, exotic begonias, pentas, and gardenias. These tropical beauties will bring both color and fragrance to your home. The trick is learning how to keep them happy indoors.

The more you know about your indoor plants and where they come from, the better you will be able to please them. Understanding a plant's native habitat can help you decide which potting soil to use, how often to water, what window the plant should be in, and whether or not it needs extra humidity. But even if you don't have specific cultural information about each and every one of your houseplants, you can feel your way to success with some general guidelines.

A Few Words of Comfort
Plants have a lifespan, just as people do. If you have a struggling houseplant that has been around for a few years, it may simply be tired, and all the TLC in the world may not be able to revive it. Consider starting over with a new plant. Remember that unhealthy plants attract insects like a magnet, and when the infestation spreads to your other plants, you may regret your earlier large-heartedness.

Gift plants, such as cinerarias, poinsettias, chrysanthemums, azaleas and cyclamen, make wonderful indoor decorations, but in most cases they should be discarded after they have finished flowering. Some of these plants can be nursed along to flower again, but it is usually difficult to provide the growing conditions they need for another lush display of blooms.

The right soil
If possible, your potting soil should be tailored to the particular type of plant you are growing. Cactus, succulents and rosemary, for example, prefer a coarse, well-drained soil that is about one-third sand. Seedlings should be grown in a light, moisture-retentive, soilless mix. African violets and ferns prefer soil with a high humus content, which can be achieved by adding leaf mold or shredded bark...
