Succulents of all kinds can endure for a long time without water.
- Ingenious houseplants that thrive with little water – succulents
Succulents are currently trendy indoor plants, because they are on the one hand absolutely easy to care, on the other hand, they score with their natural appearance. They show interesting shapes and shades ranging from mint green to grass green to deep violet.
Their thick leaves store water, so they usually only need to be watered once a week. Our advice is to wait until the potting soil is dry before pouring water again. Succulents come in many different varieties, one more beautiful than the other, such as slender cactus, prickly Sedum species, plain-leaved Echeverie, or beautifully flowering Kalanchoe. As a rule, they are great eye-catchers in any environment and enjoy plenty of sunlight and dry air.
If you want to have a real eye-catcher at home, you can even make a terrarium with drought-resistant houseplants.
The attached video shows how the succulent terrarium is done in a few easy steps:
Zamioculcas – a perennial houseplant with shiny green leaves
- Real beauty among the easy-care indoor plants – Zamioculcas
This beauty cuts a good figure anywhere and in any environment. The Zamioculcas has long elegant stems from which grow deep green, rubbery leaves. The plant actually likes to be left alone. Although these indoor plants prefer temperate sunlight, but can get along well with low light, they are often the first choice for offices. They even make florists wonder, because the plants prefer to stay on the dry and shady side and seem to profit from carelessness. In other words, the Zamioculcas are never angry with you, when you often forget to water or neglect the plant altogether.
The green leaves of the Zamioculcas shine easily in the sunshine.
Zamioculcas needs little care, but is a real decoration in the room.
- Bring a green note into your room with impressive indoor plants such as the ivy turkey, ponytail palm, bow hemp and aerial plants
The ivy turkey is a rather robust, but very pretty houseplant, so they often choose people. It adorns every ambience with its magnificent green leaves and brings a natural freshness. The ivy can thrive well in low light and will not be disturbed if you let the soil dry out.
The efeutute is particularly popular as an ornamental plant for offices
Ponytail palm or on well German ponytail palm decorates the interior.
The unique ponytail palm, still called ponytail palm, originally comes from Mexico and surprises us with its impressive shape. Thin leaves sprout from a thick stalk where the plant stores water and is therefore very resistant to drought.
The bow hemp has a very attractive look.
Sansevieria or in the German-speaking world still called Bogenhanf, butcher plant or mother-in-law tongue is a robust, easy-care plant that brings an exotic touch in your home. Many homeowners choose this survivalist, because she can endure for a long time without water. This loves the loneliness and quickly turns into a real eye-catcher, whether it is in the interior or outside in the garden or on the terrace. The Sansevieria is not fit, it has a classic exotic look and will certainly remain for many years in our offices and private homes. Even interesting new varieties with silver stripes are grown on the long green leaves.
The Sansevieria also cuts a fine figure in the bedroom.
Just as exotic as the bow hemp are the aerial plants. They provide a visual change in every room where they are hung. As their name suggests, these eye-catching houseplants do not even need earth to thrive; You can literally hang them in the air, put them in a decorative vase or place them on a shelf. And if you forget to water these exotics, that’s not so bad. They do not need soil to thrive, as the aerial plants absorb water and nutrients directly from the air through their leaves. However, it is good if you immerse them once every two to three days in water for about two to three hours. That’s all!
