Calatea Sanderiana, Stripes are Worn
This Peruvian plant stands out for the lines that mark its leaves, which seem to be drawn with felt-tip pens. He likes diffused light, so it is ideal next to a window with curtain or shade.
It needs a temperature between 15 and 21 degrees and does not like sudden changes in temperature. In a dry environment will need moisture, which we get by spraying the leaves with distilled water. Always keep it moist but do not soak. It is also good to leave a dish with moist stones under the pot, but the water does not touch the roots. Fertilize every 15 days in summer.
Cactus and Succulents, The Most Grateful
There are so many varieties of cactus and succulents that we could spend our lives collecting them and we would never get them all. “I always advise starting with a collection of 4 or 5 varieties that are very different from each other. They are ideal plants for dry environments,” says Anna de Floristismo.
Many people are surprised when a cactus dies because they think they are indestructible. Cacti are also living beings and as such need some basic care, which we must provide.
They tolerate both heat and cold, but their ideal temperature is between 16 and 21 degrees in summer and between 4 and 15 in winter. They do not like being next to radiators.
They are among the few indoor plants that support the direct sun well, but they can also live with a few hours of shade a day. They have large reserves of water in their interior so it is preferable to water them less than more. “I advise watering once a week in summer and once a month in winter. Once a month fertilize with cactus and succulents,” says Anna.
Ficus Elastica, A Classic
The Ficus elastica has shiny, smooth, soft and hard leaves that absorb formaldehyde with remarkable effectiveness. You can grow a lot if you find the right conditions. He prefers to be in a place where the temperature stays between 16 and 21 degrees because they do not like the cold.
It needs a lot of light but not direct because it would burn its leaves. Next to a window with curtain or separated a few meters from the window is its perfect place. Watering only when the surface is dry, does not like waterlogging. Spray the leaves and place a dish with damp stones under very dry conditions. It is a plant that gives a little more work than others because having the leaves so bright, then adhere to them all dust particles so you have to clean them one by one with a damp cloth. Fertilize every 15 days in summer.
Ficus Lyrata, Music for Your Environments
Another variety of Ficus very different from the previous one is Ficus lyrata. With large wavy leaves, it can reach 3 meters in height and almost 2 meters in diameter, so we must place it in a space where it can thrive at ease. The care required by Ficus lyrata are the same as those of Ficus elastica.
Maranta, It’s Your Year
Another plant that with its dress code fascinates the most fashionistas is the Maranta, with its leaves in different shades of green. When it is not very big, you can put it on a dresser or shelf, where it will capture glances for its colorful shades of the color of the year, Greenery.
It needs to be located in a place where it receives partial shade, never direct sunlight. Its ideal temperature is between 16 and 21 degrees, and needs a humid environment, so in summer and winter if there is heating to dry the environment, you will need to spray the leaves with water to maintain moisture. Water abundantly, always keeping the soil moist but avoiding to soak the roots. Fertilize every 2 weeks in summer.
