Garden of Eden in Your Living Room
August 12, 2011 by lilyofthevalley
While planning a mini garden, keep light requirements in mind for interior plants. There is more leeway for seasonal displays (mini Daffodils in the spring, Shamrocks/Oxalis for St Patrick’s Day, etc) which are rotated out as the season passes so they are always looking fresh. Permanent plants in the garden should have the same light needs as each other. High light plants placed in low light conditions will fade out and the same applies for low light plants placed in sunny windowsills.
Mini Interior Garden
Mini indoor gardens use the same design principles as their exterior counterparts. In addition to texture, color, balance and all the others, scale is one of the most important things to consider. The leaf size and plant heights need to correspond to container size or the garden will look disproportionate.
Silver-Spotted Philodendron Adds a Pattern to this Garden
Add simple sculptures for interest and finish off the look with rocks for a polished feel. For ambitious designers, use a smaller size pebble to make paths through the garden. This is an excellent project for gardeners of all ages.
