Bamboo woven wood shades are an attractive backdrop for medium-light plants
Oct 28 2010
Most homes have variable amounts of light flowing into their rooms, and that may be the right atmosphere for houseplants that will grow best in medium-light locations.
Some houseplants thrive in bright, but indirect light.
According to GardeningKnowHow.com, there are countless plants that do well with some light during the day, but not a constant barrage of sunlight.
"Plants that grow in medium light are sort of the perfect plant. They can tolerate some direct light, but not a lot. They like light, so bright light is good, but not direct light," advises the website, which adds that southeast or west-facing windows will be best for such plants.
The Boston fern is one of the popular houseplants, and for a good reason. It has an exotic look without requiring exotic care. In addition to medium light, this plant flourishes in average room temperature and evenly moist soil.
Good bathroom plants are those that do well in high humidity, including the Croton and the Bird's nest fern.
With their variations in color and texture, bamboo woven wood shades offer a natural look that goes well with greenery or houseplants that have blooms. They can diffuse the light that shines on plants or be raised for bright, indirect lighting.
