Flowers can add coziness and liven up any room. But some owners refuse greenery in the apartment, as they believe that there is a lot of fuss with them – in time for fields, replant, pick up the soil. However, not all flowers require a lot of your attention.
Following is the selection of 8 natural plants that do not need to be repotted often.
The first place on the list is occupied by echeveria or “stone rose.” In America, it is presented in green, lilac, and reddish colors in its historical homeland. This is an ornamental plant with fleshy leaves that resemble a natural rose in shape. Echeveria is entirely unpretentious. It is enough to water it once a week in hot summer and winter and autumn – once a month. While the plant is young, it will need to be transplanted once a year; after a few years, the pot will need to be changed every three to four years.
Hoya carnosa, or its better-known name “wax ivy,” requires a transplant only if there is no room left in the pot. This usually happens every five years. The ample flower is distinguished by thick leaves that can accumulate moisture. And therefore, it can easily endure several months without watering.
Chlorophytum can quickly become the most exciting element in the interior. And at the same time, it does not require maintenance and frequent transplantation at all. A young plant needs to change the pot no more than once every three years. But adult chlorophytes do not require transplantation at all. To grow and delight you with their beautiful appearance, you need to change the old top layer to a new one periodically. This is necessary for the plant to absorb minerals and nutrients from fresh soil.
This flower is a little more demanding than its predecessors. For the balsam to please bud, you need to take care of light free space and not forget about regular watering. And he will also not refuse periodic spraying, especially on hot summer days.
5. Aloe vera
Aloe vera is perfect for creating a “green first aid kit” on the window. Its leaves help to cope with sunburn and also promote early wound healing. This plant came to us from Africa, and therefore it can be safely left on the windowsill even on hot summer days. It transfers dry air without any problems. Transplant aloe vera only when necessary. Do not disturb the plant in vain. Change his pot no more than once every four years.
If you love calla lilies, but you cannot grow them because of the capriciousness of these flowers, then buy yourself a spathiphyllum. Its flowers are very similar to calla lilies, but in terms of care, it is less whimsical. It needs to be watered abundantly in spring and summer, but watering is enough for it once every two weeks in the cold season. You need to transplant the plant into a larger pot each time so that the overgrown roots feel comfortable. But this should be done no more often than once every three years.
Bromeliad requires special lighting, scattered rays from a lamp are ideal for it, but it should be protected from straight lines, as they can “burn” it. This relative of pineapple needs daily watering in spring and summer, but the best recommendation is to reduce it to once a week in winter and autumn. If we talk about a transplant, you need to do it once every two to three years, not more often. And don’t forget to take a bigger pot every time. Bromeliad will thank you with a long, rich red or bright yellow flowering.
This bizarre flower is popularly called – “elephant’s leg” or “horse’s tail.” The name comes from its gushing top. Nolina’s unpretentiousness allows you to use it to decorate not only at home but also in offices. After all, she loves drought, and therefore it is necessary to water no more than once every two weeks.
You often don’t have to do a transplant; Nolina loves to live in one pot for a long time. Purchase a larger container and relocate the plant if the roots become thoroughly entwined with it. However, doing so more than once every four years is not suggested. To plant greenery in your apartment, it is not at all necessary to replant flowers often. Just grab a few of the plants on my list and enjoy the beauty of your green space.
