    Shade-loving indoor plants

    Often, modern apartment buildings are built in such a way that only the shadow side is present in the apartment. In this case, housewives prefer to do without houseplants in principle. And in vain, because there are unpretentious shade-loving indoor plants that can additionally please residents with flowering.

    Chlorophytum. Topping the list of unpretentious shade-loving indoor flowers is chlorophytum - an attractive plant with hanging daughter layers. He calmly tolerates any home conditions that are provided to him. It should also be noted that chlorophytum is preferable to grow for those who are forced to constantly go on business trips - the plant can be watered abundantly before leaving and not worry about it for 2 weeks. The flower collects water into the root system and feels great.

    Alocasia in the shade can grow up to 2 meters in height. The ability to grow successfully in the shade is compensated by laborious care, although there are simple solutions to issues here. To begin with, you should plant the plant in a substrate that is similar in composition to the soil intended for the growth of orchids. Next, you will have to work out an irrigation schedule - the soil should always be of a certain moisture content. Once a month, you will have to carry out top dressing - universal mineral fertilizers are used.

    Epipremnum. Epipremnum varieties are curly, excellent living in the shade and reaching lengths of up to 3 meters. This flower is often used to decorate an apartment, since it can withstand completely different conditions for germination. The only drawback is that some varieties in the shade can lose mottling on the leaves, but this will not lose its beauty.

    Soleirolia. By the type of saltérolium, it is a small decorative rug, which can usually be seen in ornamental gardens. Curly structure and small rounded leaves during growth in the shade are formed in the correct "cap-shaped" forms. The advantage of saltium is the ability to withstand temperature surges - with a window that suddenly opens in winter, the flower will withstand even negative temperature readings.

    Tips for growing Potentilla in the garden

    Cinquefoil cannot be called a finicky plant, except that the white cinquefoil loves shady places, the shiny cinquefoil takes root well on the sand, and the Arctic cinquefoil feels great in acidic soil. All other plants of this type need well-lit areas and slightly acidic soil.

    In the spring, as soon as the soil thaws, the plants can be planted in the ground. Planting sites are prepared at the rate of two sizes of space for one earthen plant coma. The hole is filled with humus, sand and earth in approximately equal proportions and mixed with the required amount of mineral fertilizers. When planting, the root collar of the seedling should be about 2-3 centimeters above ground level. After planting, the soil is rammed and watered.

    To retain moisture, the soil around the bush is mulched with tree bark or straw.

    The herbaceous cinquefoil is often grown by the seed method, sowing open ground with seeds in the fall. In the spring they germinate, and all that remains is to plant them.

    Also, seeds can be planted in spring by sowing fertile soil and covering it with polyethylene so that the soil temperature is at least 15 ºC.

    As soon as the first three leaves appear, the seedlings are seated in separate pots, and by the end of summer they are moved into open ground. The plant begins to bloom the next year after planting.

    Cinquefoil is widely used as a decoration for landscape design. The plant does not require constant care, so it does not need cultivated soil, top dressing and systematic watering. It is advisable to fertilize the bushes with mineral fertilizers only in the spring. If the weather is dry, it is advisable to give the plant watering so that it does not dry out from the heat.

    Usually Potentilla is not susceptible to diseases and pests. There are rare cases when powdery mildew or rust appears on it.

    For the winter, the plant does not need to be insulated. It tolerates cold well.

    There is one constant responsibility when leaving: the timely pruning of the bushes. So that the bush does not look sloppy and does not grow, Potentilla is cut twice a season: in spring and autumn. In the spring, the bush is formed in such a way that it stays in the shape that was given to it all summer. Also, in the spring, all adherent branches of the last year are shortened, when the plant will bloom by another third, and in the fall those branches that are longer than others are completely cut out. Every five years, the bushes are cut completely, as they say, "under the stump."

    The plant can be propagated in several ways.

    Cuttings are harvested in the summer from the most developed stems. This is usually done before flowering begins. If this is nevertheless done after the plant blooms, then all flowers must be removed from the future cutting. The length of the cuttings ranges from 8 to 14 centimeters. They are rooted in specially prepared soil or in the open field, periodically watered. They are insulated for the winter so that the cuttings do not die.

    Reproduction by dividing the bush

    This method is used either in spring or early autumn. A shrub suitable for planting is divided into three to four parts with two or three buds in each. The roots are fed with stimulants and planted in the ground at a distance of 30-40 centimeters from each other.

    This method is used in early summer. The lowest shoots are bent to the ground and fastened with hairpins. The lower part of the cut is sometimes trimmed. Over the summer, the cutter has its own root system. In autumn, such a shoot can already be separated from the mother plant and planted for independent growth.

    In the spring, as soon as the soil thaws, the plants can be planted in the ground. Planting sites are prepared at the rate of two sizes of space for one earthen plant coma. The hole is filled with humus, sand and earth in approximately equal proportions and mixed with the required amount of mineral fertilizers. When planting, the root collar of the seedling should be about 2-3 centimeters above ground level. After planting, the soil is rammed and watered.

    To retain moisture, the soil around the bush is mulched with tree bark or straw.

    BENEFITS FROM A CLEANER IN THE COTTAGE AREA

    Some gardeners complain that their garden plot is simply occupied by celandine and it is very difficult to fight it. Do not rush to radically get rid of celandine, just limit its habitat. Young seedlings die easily if you just cut the rosettes.
    Show in full.

    In general, celandine was not the gardener's enemy, but his friend and assistant. In addition to the healing properties familiar from childhood for the removal of warts, it also helps cultivated plants to cope with diseases and enemies. For example, if your soil is contaminated, then before planting valuable bulbous crops, it is better to sow celandine, and at the end of August it is embedded in the soil. In the fight against pests of flowers, fresh infusion of celandine helps well.

    Dig up four plants with roots, grind and pour 10 liters of water. After 15 minutes, the water turns brown, and you can water the plants with it. Please note that even a single watering has a noticeable effect on the appearance of your oppressed green pets. Aphids not only crumble from plants, but their new colonies do not appear on treated flower beds for a long time.

    Celandine is harvested in May-June, when the plants begin to bloom, dried in the shade. The dried grass is stored in paper bags, and is used to disinfect the soil before planting bulbs and after harvesting them.

    First, the bulbs of tulips, gladioli and other bulbous flowers are kept for 2 hours in a warm infusion of celandine (300 g of dry grass per 10 liters of water, insisted for 2 days). Then the bulbs are dried and planted in the ground. After harvesting, the planting material can be well washed and soaked for 30 minutes in an infusion of dry grass (150 g per 10 liters of water, insisted for 2 days).

    Gladioli will hurt less and be damaged by pests if the bulbs are not only disinfected in an infusion of celandine before planting, but also regularly spray the plants with infusion (500 g of dry grass per 10 liters of water). You need to do this 4 times: when the 2-3rd leaf, 5-6th leaf appears, before flowering and after the growing season. In addition, it is useful to mulch the soil under the gladioli with chopped herbs of celandine. Celandine is also used in the same way when growing tulips, only spraying is carried out three times.

    This plant is also effective in the fight against rodents, if you scatter dried celandine between plantings of carnations, bulbous, in young trees.

    So don't just fight celandine in the garden, but use it for the benefit of your plants. Just remember that this is a poisonous plant, so all work must be carried out with gloves, and when spraying, wear a mask.

    The relationship between man and the plant world is rooted in deep antiquity. In those days, when a person was defenseless in the face of an omnipotent nature, he endowed the world around him with good and evil properties. Plants, among which people lived, were no exception. He protected some, revered them as sacred, and feared others. Some plant species were associated with historical and fictional events, so myths and legends were born that have survived to this day.
    Flowers in the East played an especially important role. The Hindus brought bright and fragrant flowers to the gods. Basil, which has white fragrant flowers, was dedicated to Krishna and Vishnu. According to legend, Krishna frolicked under the kadamba tree, therefore the globular flowers of this tree are mainly dedicated to him. They are considered the most sacred flowers in India. Shiva is dedicated to azoka with huge tassels of red-orange flowers, as well as yellow chrysanthemum, kadamba, ixora bandguk, jasmine sambac, gardenia, oleander.
    Among the ancient Egyptians, the lotus was considered a sacred flower, it was woven into wreaths and headbands, depicted in sculptural ornaments.
    The cypress, from which idols were carved, was considered sacred because its leaf is preserved in winter. This tree was especially respected in Persia, and among the American Indians it was considered sacred and hung with sacrifices. In recent decades, due to the increasing environmental pollution by industrial wastes, harmful to human health - gases, heavy metals and others, there has been an increase in interest in plants as absorbers of these pollutants and as environmental health enhancers. Conducted research gave little comforting information. Plants can absorb some of the harmful substances and gases, some of the substances settle on the leaves or get into the leaf tissue, but the plants, as a rule, get sick and need to be replaced with fresh ones. Plants have been studied very little as air purifiers.
