So the question now is: Which plant can you best fill this boring empty space?
Since the Christmas tree took up a lot of space, a large plant is needed to fill the space. A plant that needs a bit of care, which is nice after we had to suck up fallen pines every day. In addition, just like clothing, hairstyles and interior, houseplants are also subject to trends.
Sansevieria or female tongue is a very suitable plant for the water forgetters among us. Sansevieria is one of the easiest houseplants. The plant not only gives your room a warm look, but also ensures better humidity. The plant does well in many living rooms, which makes sense because the plant is easy, attractive, and healthy.
light and heat
Sansevieria is very handy not only because it needs little or no water, but also because you can put it anywhere: in a sunny place or away from the window. In the latter case, the water requirements will decrease and they will grow less quickly. In addition, the leaves of the plant become lighter in color in a sunny spot. A little further from the window, the paper becomes darker. That is why it is more beautiful for some species if they are a little further from the window, in order to preserve their dark color.
What’s also a great alternative to a Christmas tree is Strelitzia ‘nicolai’. This large plant is also called the bird of paradise plant. This is a tropical masterpiece that looks really great in any living room. In addition, it is a tall plant that can fill the empty space well. And with its large green leaves, it gives your home a real look Jungle vibe.
Strelitzia likes slightly moist soil, but not too wet. Put it in a bright place out of direct sunlight. The bird of paradise plant also has an air purifying effect, which means that it produces additional oxygen and breaks down harmful substances.
Don’t want a cactus but want an easy plant? Then buy yucca, also called palm lily. This plant has a strong woody stem and therefore can take a beating. The palm lily loves a bright spot and wants a sprinkle of water every now and then.
Be careful with plenty of water
The amount of water depends on factors such as temperature, volume, and light intensity. There should not be a layer of water at all at the bottom of the pot, because the roots can then rot. The soil should be able to absorb all the moisture.
These plants do well in plenty of light:
