Shade-loving plants can be a decorating dilemma during warmer months
May 11 2011
Keeping shade-loving plants happy as summer approaches is a challenge for homeowners who don't want to shift their plant locations away from direct sunlight as the seasons change.
Window treatments can help control light needed for various plants
The right window treatments will prevent direct sunlight from harming the shade lovers and can be chosen to coordinate the natural look that plants bring indoors. As ApartmentTherapy.com puts it, "Inexpensive indoor plants add life and interest to any room."
Solar screen shades or window blinds provide the protection that shade-loving plants need when they are near a window and allow them to thrive without hurting their growth. Other window coverings, such as bamboo shades, allow filtered light to come through while offsetting the greenery in eco-friendly style.
If a homeowner wants to bring some life to a dark corner, then locating low-light plants there is an easy decorative move. The website recommends begonias, ferns, mint or swedish ivy among plants that require less light, but will vary according to watering needs. A moss terrarium is another way to bring plant life inside to an area where indirect light is available.
