If you are interested in purchasing indoor plants while in Lawrence, GA assisted living communities, here are five low-maintenance plants you should get!
A Chrismas cactus, also known as a Schulmergera, is a tiny cacti genus located in the coastal mountains of south-eastern Brazil, having six to nine species. A stem cutting can be used to propagate the plant. Every year for a few months, it produces gorgeous blossoms. They enjoy being under bright, indirect sunlight.
If you love the color purple, this plant in the shade of violet is perfect for you. Formally known as Saintpaulia, it has a reputation for being fickle as it is not easy to get it to bloom, but it has luxuriant leaves all year. Direct sunlight can damage the leaves of African violets, thus they need indirect light. For the best results, choose a window that faces north or east. Plants should be kept away from cold glass and the pot should be rotated once a week to ensure that all leaves receive light.
Also known as Tradescantia, this plant requires little maintenance but if left untrimmed, it will grow profusely and uncontrollably. Trimmings should be discarded because it is an invasive plant. This is a great plant for hanging pots. The appropriate amount of light is extremely important to wandering Jews. They require a lot of light to stay brilliant, but direct sunlight will burn their leaves.
This plant likes to be in the sun in the morning and the shade in the afternoon. The majority of begonias thrive in part shade, with 4 to 6 hours in direct morning sun every day, or filtered sunlight through trees. Most will grow in full shade, meaning no filtered or direct sunlight but they will be less dense and produce fewer flowers. Only water when the soil appears to be dry. Use peat moss and potting soil.
Spider plants are considered one of the most popular house plants due to their ease of maintenance. It could also be used as a hanging plant. It functions as a cleanser of the air. Spider plants prefer a consistent amount of moisture as they do not enjoy being too dry or too wet. Plants should be kept in bright to mild indirect sunlight.
