The winter garden originates from the cold countries where people wanted to have the green indoors even in the middle of snow. As most plants do not survive in low temperatures, the solution was to create an environment attached to the house, which could be a closed balcony, or an integrated space in a home environment.
Even without snow here in Brazil, low temperatures can cause some plants to suffer. So, see tips on how to decorate or create your own space to keep green close to you at any time of the year.
Choose the best plants
The choice needs to be for the species that best adapt to indoor environments, such as Aloe vera, Areca palm, Lilies of peace, Pau d’Água, Chamaedórea palm, Singonio, Boa, Philo in cascade, Begonia, Zamioculca, Pleomele, Mini Cacti, Succulents, Fern, Sword of Saint George, Maranta, Anthurium, Peace lily, Begonia, Orchid, Fan palm, Dracena, Violets, Bromeliad, Boa constrictor, Pacová, Elephant’s foot, Croton, Peperomia, Rib of Adam, among others species.
And it must be remembered that for each type of plant, different maintenance is necessary, such as paying attention to the amount of water when watering, fertilizing according to the needs of each plant, removing dead leaves and applying fungicides regularly.
Glass doors and partitions
If you are going to separate the winter garden from the rest of the room, use glass doors and partitions. That way your room will be brighter and will make your gardens even more beautiful and highlighted in the environment.
