Windowsill to the north
If the window of the room faces north, then sunlight rarely enters the room. Not only does lack of sunshine adversely affect the microclimate and mood, but there are also problems with landscaping. Not all plants will be able to grow with such a small amount of sunlight, which happens in rooms on the north side. And some plants, even if they take root, acquire an unattractive appearance, begin to stretch to the light, violating the natural proportions of their shape. A frequent problem is the pale color of the leaves, the lack of flowering. But I really want the mini-garden to turn green and bloom on the windowsill!
This problem can be solved by choosing the right plants for landscaping the northern windowsill. In fact, there are many plants that do not like a lot of sunlight and would prefer the north side to any other. In addition, these plants are the owners of bright and plentiful greens, flowers of bright colors, which are always pleasing to the eye.
So, what indoor plants should you choose? The most common and unpretentious among them are fern, spathiphyllum, clivia, peperomia, violet, "money tree". These plants are not only very beautiful, but also have other advantages. For example, fern is an excellent natural humidifier, which is very important during the heating season. 90% of the moisture used for irrigation, the fern gives into the air of the room from the surface of its many thin leaves, so you need to water it more often than other colors.
“Money tree”, besides the fact that according to Feng Shui attracts wealth, pleases the eye with fleshy round leaves, and if this plant is large and grows in a medium-sized pot, it becomes like a real tree and resembles a fashionable bonsai.
Spathiphyllum, clivia and violet bloom beautifully on the northern windowsill. Violet is a mountain flower, it is used to the absence of light, but it itself can bestow the charm of long flowering and bring bright colors into the room. Blooming clivia is always an event, because a large bright orange inflorescence is admired. And the white flowers of spathiphyllum persist for a very long time, and at the same time do not fade, but gradually turn green to the color of the leaves.
Peperomia has dark green glossy leaves and releases bactericidal substances into the air, which is especially useful for children. Having planted all these plants on the northern windowsill, you can completely forget that it is still the north, and not a lush tropical paradise.
