Trees are great things to have in your garden. They clean the air, they give shade and privacy, they are great for climbing and they are beautiful to look at. While many trees are too big to think of growing in the interior, there are many trees that make wonderful accents inside your home. Here are a few:
If you are a fan of the Victorian era, you may have seen pictures or seen movies from the era with lounge palms that brighten the living room. They adapt well to low light and humidity and are on NASA 's list of 50 plants that clean the air. And do it face, they are beautiful and whimsical and who would not want in their living room in a large ceramic pot?
If you want a touch of Christmas in your home all year round, what about a Norfolk pine? They are mostly Christmas trees that love bright light and moist soil. At Christmas time, you can decorate them with small bows or light garlands, but they make a great addition to any room all year round.
If you like big, bold statements, you'll want a fiddle fig tree in your living room. These trees have large carved leaves that give the air of the tropics without being mournful or vaporous. These trees love the light, but do not like the air currents; keep them away from windows and doors and you're ready to go.
The Ficus is sometimes the most popular indoor tree, it even makes a false version that one simply forgets from time to time. The real version is actually a wiping fig tree if you want to be technical, and they come in different textures and heights so that they are perfect for any room, no matter where .
Love the tropics but live where there seems to be a perpetual winter? So what about adding a majesty to your house? They are fan shaped and have that tropical feel for them and best of all, they are growing slowly if they do not get the strong sunlight. Throw on the heat, look at the palm tree and pretend to be on the beach, even though it is in January and there is a snowstorm on the outside.
If you love a desert-type tree, then the Yucca is for you. They have thick woody stems and pointed leaves that come in a variety of colors from blue to green blue and also have yellow, cream or white tones.
