    How do you look after your houseplants?

    Choosing a houseplant requires a delicate assessment of your space and a sensitivity to plant aesthetics. What you need to find is the symbiosis between the plant and its environment. To achieve this, consider the ambient light, the interior architecture and the desired ornamental role. Those new to indoor gardening will opt for hardy, tolerant varieties such as Sansevieria or Ficus, whose beauty lies in their simplicity. Connoisseurs, on the other hand, can lose themselves in the delights of the exotic, with Aglaonema or Cycas, while being aware of the care these choices imply.

    Maintaining your houseplants means keeping a direct and intimate link with nature. Maintaining your indoor green plants means knowing how to manage watering, light and humidity, according to the specific requirements of each specimen. Too much water, for example, risks drowning the roots. Not enough will dry them out.

    Periodic pruning of your green plant will promote its growth and vigor. You should also respect the rhythm of the seasons, as plants are obviously very sensitive to them. Pay close attention to signs of distress and react promptly.

    Houseplants are more than just decoration: they add silent life to your home. They purify the air, removing invisible impurities, and increase humidity, creating a healthier environment.

    Their presence helps create a serene atmosphere, conducive to concentration. When chosen with taste, placed with care and properly maintained, these plants can really bring a breath of nature to your home.

    Is your space limited? Choose compact plants that are proud of their small size, such as Crassulas Ovata, Haworthias Fasciata or Tradescantias Spathacea. Create verdant tableaux in sparsely-decorated spaces, transforming every nook and cranny into an oasis of life.

    Light is the lifeblood of houseplants. It is therefore an essential element in their choice of location. Exposing them for too long to direct sunlight can burn their delicate leaves. Conversely, plunging them too long into darkness will quickly cause them to wither. So it's important to understand the specific needs of each plant, and to create the right light balance for it to flourish.
