The Indoor Garden Design Idea arose due to the lack of greenery in urban areas. Many new building developments pose new problems in terms of greening. To overcome this, the designers have come up with Indoor Gardening. Maybe you are among those who want to make your house greener and healthier. Besides its beauty, plants can improve indoor air quality or you can even grow some vegetables and herbs.
In this TED talk, Kamal Meattle explains how an arrangement of three common houseplants, used in specific spots in a home or office building, can result in measurably cleaner indoor air.
Indoor gardens can be created in whatever space you have available. From windowsills or tables; shelves also provide ample room for plants while taking up little space. Or perhaps you have an entire room to devote to your new garden.
When selecting the perfect growing spot, make sure that adequate light reaches every plant. If using artificial light, HID (high intensity discharge) lights, which hang down from the ceiling and convert electricity into usable energy for plants, are highly recommended. Areas with tile or linoleum floors are best, or you’ll want to use tarps to protect wood floors or carpet from unavoidable drops of water.
A good planting medium is essential when setting up an indoor garden. Soil found outdoors is generally too heavy and dense for use in containers. Instead, shop for a mix that is specific to indoor plants – one that will hold moisture and nutrients, and drain well.
Gardens are seen today as part of the sustainable architecture and provide not only fresh air to building but also fresh modern looks.
