The benefits of indoor plants, why indoor flowers are needed

Fruit and berry plants

It is difficult to imagine our life without beautiful fresh flowers. But unfortunately, cut bouquets are not durable, but you want to constantly be surrounded by charming representatives of the flora.
Indoor plants will help to solve this problem, and flower delivery Dnepropetrovsk will help you in this, which will greatly facilitate your efforts.

Why do we need indoor flowers?

Everyone knows that a beautiful flower in a pot will successfully complement and revitalize even the most minimalist interior, and will also become an irreplaceable decoration of the room. Various representatives of the plant world will create a unique home cosiness and a comfortable atmosphere that you will not want to part with. However, besides this, indoor plants also have a positive, healing effect on the human body. It is known that in closed rooms a large amount of carbon dioxide, dust and toxic fumes from furniture and finishing materials accumulates. And for residents of large cities, even airing a room will not be a salvation. After all, along with the fresh air will get car exhaust and cigarette smoke. Indoor flowers help us to cope with all this. It is worth noting that some of their species have the ability to eliminate the negative effects of electromagnetic radiation and get rid of bacteria.

In addition, it will be an excellent, and most importantly, an original gift in honor of various events. And flower delivery Dnepropetrovsk will help to present the planned surprise, which is carried out in a timely manner and exactly to the address you specified.

The benefits of "home" plants

Next, we will consider the main representatives of indoor inhabitants and their beneficial effects on our health:

  1. Dracaena effectively cleans the air from benzene, which enters the room with exhaust gases or is emitted by linoleum.
  2. Chlorophytum absorbs toxins released by various household items and furniture made from synthetic materials. Another "plus" of the flower is its bactericidal properties.
  3. Dieffenbachia makes the air cleaner by eliminating all impurities.
  4. Geranium destroys harmful microorganisms, and is also capable of releasing substances that have an anti-stress effect.

And this is just a part of the large Flora family, which, cohabitating with us, bring incomparable benefits.


  1. Read the topic on Wikipedia

In the process of photosynthesis, indoor plants absorb carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen in return. In addition, they ionize and humidify dry air, reduce its dustiness.

Modern building and finishing materials: plastic coatings, glue, varnishes, paints, synthetic resins, etc., emit a variety of toxic substances. Formaldehyde, benzene, phenol, xylene and trichlorethylene are especially dangerous. These substances in the air can cause headaches, insomnia, palpitations, joint pain and nausea. Houseplants are able to neutralize these chemicals. Plants such as chlorophytum, dracaena, sansevieria, ficus, chrysanthemum, aloe, azalea, scindapsus, gerbera, ivy, philodendron and spathiphyllum are especially successful with this function.

Composition and benefits of tea brewing

Tea has long been considered a healthy drink, but it must be used in dosage and properly brewed in order for it to be beneficial. This also applies to indoor plants.

The trace elements contained in the tea will help the flower grow, bloom and bear fruit better. Florists believe that it is necessary to water the flowers with tea as a regular feeding. But it must be borne in mind that not all flowers and not in every period of growth need feeding.

First, it is necessary to determine the needs of the plant and the level of acidity of the soil, since the tannins contained in tea reduce the level of acidity.

The composition of tea contains the following substances useful for plants:

  • Potassium. The brew is rich in potassium, which has an important function - it promotes the growth and ripening of fruits. Tea contains it in moderation, so you don't have to worry about an overdose of potassium.
  • Calcium. Calcium is an important participant in carbohydrate and protein metabolism. The normal formation of the plant's root system largely depends on calcium.
  • Magnesium. Magnesium is part of chlorophyll. Accordingly, when magnesium is insufficient, photosynthesis deteriorates, the plant becomes weak, grows slowly, and the leaves turn yellow.
  • Manganese. This trace element is involved in photosynthesis and synthesis of vitamins. It is responsible for the normal growth and development of the plant's root system.

Tea contains other trace elements, but they are few, so the effect will not be too noticeable for the plant. Also, a useful property of welding is a decrease in the level of aluminum, which slows down plant growth and negatively affects yields.

Also, tea leaves can be used dry for fertilization, soil mulching, drainage. The infused mulch allows moisture to stay in the soil longer, so the plant will not require frequent watering.

How does a growth stimulant work

The mechanism of action of stimulants on a living organism can be different. Stimulants can affect:

  • biosynthesis, movement and accumulation of natural phytohormones in the plant
  • rate of redox reactions
  • enhance respiration, photosynthesis, the formation of protein compounds
  • cell division, their elongation, tissue differentiation, etc.

Moreover, each stimulant, as a rule, acts on some specific link in the metabolism and, accordingly, can be used in strictly defined cases.

How to feed home plants

Indoor flowers are best fed with folk remedies. They are safer and always at hand.

Onion peel

Onion peels are beneficial for all blooming house flowers as they contain a wide range of trace elements. It is very simple to prepare an onion cocktail, but it does not make sense to store it for a long time.

Recipe: dial 50 g of husk, pour 2 liters. hot water, put on fire, boil for 8-10 minutes. Let it brew for 3 hours. Cool, spray the plant.

Such a procedure will not only provide the plant with the necessary minerals and vitamins, but also save it from parasites and many diseases.


Sugar is an excellent food for indoor plants. 1 tbsp Dissolve sugar in 0.5 liters of warm water. You can sprinkle sugar (1 tsp) on the soil under the plant, then water. To prevent mold from appearing in the soil, do not add a lot of sugar. For better breakdown of sugar to glucose, additionally use the drug Baikal EM-1.

Pharmacy glucose

Instead of sugar, you can use pharmacy glucose. Put 1 glucose tablet in 1 liter of warm water. The solution can be sprayed and watered once a month.

Citrus peel

Citrus peels are an excellent breeding ground for indoor plants. Gradually fill half of a three-liter jar with the peel, cover with boiling water, covering the zest. Let it stand for a couple of days, then remove the zest, add boiled water to the top. Water and spray the seedlings with tincture once a month.

Banana peel

Banana peel can be a great food for all green spaces. Chop the peel from 5 bananas, put in a 3-liter jar, fill up to the top with boiling water. Let the day infuse. Feed once every 2 months.

Banana skins can be placed in the bottom of the pot when transplanting. Rotting, they will nourish the plant.

Coffee grounds

Top dressing with coffee grounds will only be useful for those home flowers that love acidic soil. These are gladioli, rhododendron, azalea, rose, and many evergreens. When transplanting, mix the soil with sleeping coffee: 3 tbsp. on a flower pot.

Soil deacidification

If the soil is highly acidic, then the shell application rate is up to 1 kg per 1 sq. m. Collecting such an amount of shells, of course, is problematic, provided that the weight of one shell is only 5-10 g. The only correct solution is to introduce egg flour directly into the hole when planting seedlings.

It is after the introduction of flour that the soil after watering or rain does not form a dense crust with capillaries, through which moisture evaporates. At the same time, the shell, like a baking powder, works in the ground for several years, since it decomposes slowly. If you need to neutralize the soil faster, use dolomite flour.

Is there a risk of harm to succinic acid?

Often novice growers are interested in whether there is a possibility that after treating the plant with succinic acid, the situation will worsen. In fact, this substance is absolutely safe. However, you need to understand how to cook it correctly, know all the nuances of use, as well as storage features.

When fertilizing with succinic acid, quite often a certain amount of the prepared solution remains. It is allowed to store it, but not longer than 5 days. In this case, the temperature in the room should be maintained at +25 degrees. It is important to place the container with the substance out of the reach of pets and children. Do not reuse the drug. If the roots and petioles have already been soaked in it, it will no longer give the desired effect in the future.

If the dosage of succinic acid for plants is observed, there will be no harm to the culture from such a remedy. For processing, a very low concentration is usually used. But, even if an overdose occurs, gardeners do not observe much harm from this. After all, the root zone, the aerial parts of the flower, absorb the amount of the product that is necessary.

Inexperienced flower growers believe that succinic acid for garden plants can be used as a good top dressing. But, starting to use only acid as fertilizer, they quickly become frustrated. After all, such a drug is not a fertilizer. Therefore, it is not recommended to stop adding complex, mineral mixtures and organic matter.

Succinic acid is considered completely harmless. However, before diluting succinic acid for watering plants, you need to stock up on gloves. Indeed, if it comes into contact with sensitive skin, the solution can provoke an allergic rash. A very concentrated agent can cause inflammation if it gets on the mucous membrane or in the eyes. So the application of succinic acid to plants must be done with caution. Usually, there are no problems and difficulties when treating the amber root zone, seeds and green mass with acid, subject to certain rules and recommendations.
