Indoor house full of plants

An indoor house full of plants, or indoor landscape, is an interior or exterior space designed to resemble a landscape or garden. It may contain plants of both indoor and outdoor species, such as the artificial Kew pachysandra, the Victorian woody figplant, or the hanging vine (Spider plant).

The house full of plants is a particularly popular indoor décor trend, and one that has been popular in North America since the 1970s. It is more commonly referred to as houseplants, although other words used for this type of décor include potted plants, and potted plants and ornamental foliage.


The word "houseplant" did not appear in print until 1977, after the indoor house plant became a popular fad. In 1978 the first commercial name for indoor houseplants was the Acquarist. In 1992, the International Houseplant Society was founded. The earliest potted plants dates back to ancient Egypt, where limestone tomb models were decorated with leaves and fruits, such as the calyx of camellia.

Some of the first potted plants include Chinese anemones, leafed aloes, and fringed nasturtiums. Englishman Sir Joseph Paxton started experimenting with potted plants in 1853. He created the first potted plants, which were placed in a conservatory, where visitors could enjoy them as long as they remained. His first success was the gardenia tree (Gardenia sp. 'Madame Alfred Carrière'). In 1879, Charles Lindley became famous for his innovative way of growing plants in a hothouse.

In the 1920s, Howard Van Doren Shaw brought plants into the interiors of new homes, and introduced them to the masses by writing a series of popular books on the subject. He went on to win the 1939 Garden Club of America's garden book award for his book, Gardens for Modern Living. His aim was to introduce the general public to potted plants, and was a primary influence on the acceptance of indoor potted plants.

One of the first steps in the process of popularization of indoor potted plants was the 1929 design of Herman Miller by Philip C. Pratt. With his creation of artificial hanging plants, he ushered in an era of indoor potted plants and the use of multiple, soft, and furred vertical plants. Today, virtually every large plant retailer carries a variety of hanging plants.

The first modern indoor houseplants appeared in homes in the 1970s in North America. They became so popular that houseplants were created by manufacturers, but gained acceptance as a hobby.

From the early 2000s onwards, new varieties were created in the field of indoor houseplants. They were selected for their excellent looking and working in indoor conditions.


Indoor houseplants may have different techniques for the ways in which they are potted and supported. From the technique of growing plants with soil mix with soil from the customer, to the techniques used to grow plants in water, all types of indoor houseplants use different techniques and different materials to grow.

The best material used for growing plants is based on the climate and environment in which the plants will live, and how much time the plants will grow for. For the environmental aspect, using lignin is best for indoor houseplants. It can survive through dry spells, and does not require watering. For the living environment, the potting mix can be easily moved and stored. Plants grown in soil are limited by size, as the soil will start to dry out. They also need to be regularly watered, and plants in pots, and even hanging plants, need to be transferred to larger pots at some point, as they grow.

Small plants are generally grown in small pots, around four to five inches in diameter, and often in pots with drainage holes. For longer growing plants, the pot size can be increased to 10 inches in diameter. Plants used in potted plants are typically tropical or sub-tropical species, and most are cacti or succulents. They are also chosen based on their upright form.

In the process of growing plants in water, a different potting mix and method can be used, as they do not need soil. The pots are kept in a tank of water, and a soaker hose is used to moisten the soil regularly. Plants grown in water generally live for longer than those grown with soil, and they are also more tender.

Directional lighting systems have also become popular in the growing and growing of indoor houseplants. The lighting systems can use lights that contain light-emitting diodes (LED) as an alternative to fluorescent lighting systems. The most popular are the direct grow lights, which are also used for growing plants in soil. The other popular lighting system is the Greenhouse reflector, which reflects the sun and sunlight, and helps to warm the plants during the winter.



In the United States, most indoor plants are grown in a temperature range of 25–27 ,°C, with indoor plants being able to tolerate temperatures up to 40 ,°C. In Brazil, the ideal temperature is 25–28 ,°C, which is a higher temperature than is recommended for plants in the United States. They require similar temperatures to grow in a climate controlled greenhouse. In greenhouses, temperature settings are often set to an average between the two climates.


Most indoor plants need humidity levels of 40–50%, with higher humidity levels tending to provide a longer life for the plant. In the winter, the air in indoor rooms tends to have lower humidity levels than in the summer. There are humidity sensors that help indoor plants to adjust to these humidity levels.


Light is a large factor in the growing and growing of plants, as well as for the way in which they will look. When purchasing indoor houseplants, look for plants that are growing in sunlight. They tend to grow taller and healthier, as well as their coloration becoming brighter. The plants are better able to tolerate high levels of light. Lighting systems are available that emit light that is at a certain
