Large Indoor Plants

When looking for finishing touches for a room or an office a large plant with plenty of height can add a distinctive look that softens an area and adds something tangible for people to appreciate. Tall plants sit nicely in a corner or even next to items of furniture where they do not impact on floor space too much.

When you buy large plants they are normally supplied in 10-14 inch pots which can then be placed in larger planters or decorative containers to fit in with the style and decor of a room or office. You must however remember to add a drip tray to allow for drainage, though you must be able to get to the drip tray easily to allow for maintenance and removal of excess water.

Buying A House Plants Tips

Indoor plants are raised in glasshouses in which the air is warm and humid. The world outside is far less accommodating, so always buy from a reputable supplier who will have made sure that the plants have been properly hardened off. In this way the shock of moving into a new home will be reduced to a minimum.

House plants can, of course, be bought at any time of the year, but it is preferable to purchase delicate varieties between late spring and mid fall.
