Ferm Living Plant Box Collection: A Plant Guide
Ferm Living Plant Box In A Hallway With Indirect Sunlight: Cacti
If you have indirect sunlight in your hallway from adjoining rooms, a cactus will do just fine in a Plant Box or Round Plant Box. How much light your cactus requires depends on the species so make sure to look into that before choosing your new prickly friend.
Cacti grow during summer, and you typically need to water them once a week. In the winter, you can reduce watering as it's their natural rest period.
Ferm Living Plant Box In A Sunny Living Room: A Fiddle Leaf Fig
The Fiddle Leaf Fig has become quite the classic of houseplants in recent years. And we understand why. Although it will take up a lot of space if you let it, it will pay you back with its large lush leaves and an almost jungle-like vibe.
This one loves sunlight, but if you have a corner of your living room that looks a little dull, you can place it there too if you make sure there is indirect sunlight. If you put the fig in a full-sun location, make sure to moisten and dust off the leaves regularly. That will make the plant look its best. Turn the plant frequently to make it grow evenly, as the leaves will always reach for the light.
Succulents also work great in a sunny living room corner!
Ferm Living Plant Box In The Kitchen: Spider Plant
If the herbs you need for cooking isn't enough for you, why not add a little something extra. The Spider plant is very adaptable and will thrive in both sun and low-light conditions. It is a favorite to many as it's very easy and because it gets funny little offsprings, resembling a spider hanging from its web, hence the name. The Spider Plants are believed to purify the air which is a great benefit in your kitchen. Make sure you don't let too many of the babies stay on, as it will drain the mother plant for energy. Just cut them off and re-plant them, and soon you will have an entire little family of Spiders.
Ferm Living Plant Box In The Dining Room: Calathea
Okay, Calatheas are not the easiest plants out there, but with their unique leaves and patterns, they are definitely worth the challenge. They don't like too much sun so make sure not to place them in a window - they will love a corner of your dining room. The tricky part of this plant is that they depend on moisture, which means frequent watering and misting. Misting helps keep the leaves free from dust.
Ferm Living Plant Box In The Bathroom: Fittonia
The trick to matching plants with a specific room in your home is getting to know the plants and their natural habitat. Fittonia grows in South America in tropical forests and is used to less light and high humidity. That is why it will thrive in your bathroom, even if you don't have a large window. You can also put it in a terrarium which is the household equivalent to the jungle, Fittonia is used to. The Fittonia is also known as Mosaic Plant due to the marvelous texture of the leaves which can be found in several different colors. The plant is a creeper, so you might want to put it in a hanging pot - that way you'll also save some room.
Ferm Living Plant Box In The Bedroom: Asparagus Fern
The Asparagus Fern is about as easy as a plant gets. It only requires to be watered now and then, and although it likes its sunlight, it won't be too bothered if you place it somewhere darker. It's virtually indestructible, so whatever you do, you probably can't kill it. It likes to be watered but if you happen to forget it, don't worry. It won't really mind. But be aware: Although it looks all nice and sweet, it has little thorns so handle it with care if you need to move it. And also, despite its appetizing name, the plant is, in fact, very toxic to dogs and cats. That’s why the natural elevation of the Plant Box is great for anyone with a love for both pets and plants.
