Decorating with plants has been a trend for the last couple of years, and the popularity of Monstera a Sansevieria is overwhelming. But now we're not talking about a little corner in your room. We want to bring the jungle of your home space. So it's time for banana plants, rubber trees, big ficus trees, bamboo, and elephant ear.
Instead of using the plants as a decoration, try to make walls and space dividers with plants and use them as a part of the furniture. One huge plant can change a living room completely. Decorating with natural colours and materials from nature is seen everywhere. But you can use bright and strong colours as a background for plants or do it the other way around - use plants as a backdrop for colourful objects.
The benefits of having plants around you include increased humidity and purified air.
an indoor banana plant needs rich, humus-like and well-draining soil as well as plenty of sunlight. In fact, indoor banana trees require bright light for about 12 hours or so for most varieties. However, you need to protect the banana plant from getting too hot to prevent scorching. Banana plants also do best in soils with pH levels between 5.5 and 7.0. Plant the banana rhizome upright and be sure the roots are well covered with soil.
It can be hard to grow big tropical plants indoors. Often they need special soil and lots of sunlight. Follow this link to get more knowhow.
