The video listed suitable plants for compact rooms
one Aloe pleasant
Aloe pleasant is also called Aloe Jucunda. This is a miniature, but very beautiful variety with pointed leaves, which reaches no more than 10-15 cm in diameter. Since this type of aloe grows very slowly, it is enough to transplant it every 3-4 years — into the same pot or a slightly larger one, mainly to renew the soil. Water the aloe once every 1-2 weeks in the summer and every 3-4 weeks in the winter, and keep it out of direct sunlight to prevent the leaves from turning brown.
2 Fat woman oval
The fat woman oval or money tree is an interesting plant whose growth can be controlled. In nature, in open ground, the fat woman grows to almost two meters in height. But if you plant a small sprout in a compact pot, it will not actively grow until you change the container. Water the plant as needed, focusing on the condition of the leaves. Be careful not to over-moisten the soil of the fat woman, otherwise its roots will quickly rot. Also avoid spraying with water — this may cause the leaves to fall off.
For those who want to have a flowering plant at home, but cannot arrange large pots around the apartment, violets are suitable. Choose miniature varieties — their diameter will be from 6 to 15 cm. At the same time, they are completely covered with flowers that do not fall off for a long time. Do not forget that violet is a moisture-loving plant, and in a small pot the soil dries out very quickly, so it will have to be watered often. In the hottest weeks of summer — every couple of days. In winter and autumn less often, about once every 4-5 days.
Sulcorebutia is a distant relative of cacti that looks like a dark green or purple textured stone. This is an unpretentious plant that will not noticeably increase in size over the years, but sometimes it can please with large bright flowers. They are planted one at a time in miniature pots or 3-4 things at once in a larger pot. Sulcorebutia needs sandy soil and good drainage, and for beauty, the soil on top can be sprinkled with larger pebbles.
Gibbeum is a miniature succulent with a very short root system. All water is stored in voluminous leaves of an unusual shape, so the plant can be safely planted in the smallest pot 5-7 cm deep. From such succulents, you can collect interesting compositions in a glass aquarium or simply put several compact planters next to each other: for example, on a desk or an open shelf rack. Remember that succulents need to be watered very rarely — only when the leaves begin to wrinkle a little from moisture loss.
Tillandsia is an unusual tiny plant that does not need to be planted in the ground. In nature, it lives directly on the branches of trees or shrubs and receives water from the air. Therefore, it can be placed in a beautiful ceramic stand, placed in a glass terrarium and even tied to a wooden board. To keep your tillandsia comfortable, spray it regularly with a spray bottle.
