since then, began to import unaccustomed to cold climate plants in different countries of the world and grow them in specially equipped greenhouses, winter gardens or pavilions. Home to equip a large greenhouse was not available to everyone, and therefore spread mini-gardens with plants. In florariumah grown mainly small plants or their dwarf varieties, or else would have to change too often filling the glass garden.
before you make house plants with their hands worth to assess the diversity of existing models to find the maximum suitable Interior solution. All house plants can be divided into three groups:
- aquarium type when creating compositions in these aquariums are considered most suitable for organization of independent ecosystem because they have cover and illumination
- glass jars vase and glasses of various shapes and configurations
- bottle option, the most difficult to manufacture because it is difficult to plant a plant and care for them through the narrow neck of
the Council! is not worth choosing capacity for florariuma beauty or value. And in the Aquarium, and glassware you can create masterpieces even in the smallest space. Moreover, the most unusual look exactly miniature tanks with 3-4 plants inside.
house plants can be positioned differently: them krepjat to walls, placed on a table or windowsill, suspended from the ceiling, etc.
florariuma Filling can also be completely different, but you will need to opt for joint cultivation of those representatives of flora, which require the same conditions.
