Decorative indoor plants in the lobby and on the landing
Decorating a hall or a landing with indoor plants is not easy, but here you can fully express your imagination. Drafts coming from the open door, poor lighting and a small number of places to plants promise little good. But even in these rooms, plants can be placed with decorative success.
In multi-storey buildings, where there is central heating, it is warm in the lobby and on the landing, as in other rooms. But in a private house in these places is much cooler than in other rooms. But, despite such shortcomings as the lack of the necessary lighting and heat, many people keep plants in the lobby. Plants must be hardy enough to exist in such, say, imperfect conditions. Where it is warm, lighting can always be improved by artificial lighting. One or two healthy and lush plants, successfully placed in the hall, are always better than the mass of forever sick exotic specimens.
Large plants that greet your guests in the lobby will impress them. They are placed depending on the hall, its layout. So, you can place one large plant at the end of the corridor, and the other in the lobby. If space permits, then you can mark the plant on the site of the stairs: upper or intermediate. Here indoor plants such as Benjamin's ficus of variegated form, delicate monstera, radiant sheflera, dracaena dracaena, Howea Forest, and yucca elephant are suitable here.
If these places are very poorly lit, use a special point source of light for plants or fluorescent illuminators. Plants must match the decor of the room. Behind the plant may be a smooth light wall or a mirror in which light will be reflected. At the same time, both the hall and the plant will seem much larger. Ceiling of white or cream color also reflects light. With light walls that reflect light, some types of plants can well exist, not even being near the window.
If the staircase is wide enough and movement along it is not difficult, then many climbing and climbing plants are installed on its spans. The shoots, outweighed by the railing, will look like a beautiful living curtain. A climbing plant located at the very base of the stairs will look very unusual, thanks to its shoots climbing up the railing of the stairs. Of these plants, one can advise Roicissus rhombic or small-leaved ivy and its varieties.
Ivy can also be used as ampelous plants. The hanging long shoots of the philodendron of the climbing and golden “Neon” epipremnum look interesting. The hanging curtain very quickly forms the southern plectrantus and the coleus-shaped plectrantus Marginatus.
If the front door has a small table, then you can place flowers on it, but this is only if the door is glass and transmits light. But, as a rule, our front doors are always steel. Therefore, it is best to use fresh cut flowers there. With sufficient lighting, ferns, sickle-shaped citromium and nesting ossicles, as well as chlorophytums, will grow well there.
