How to create a winter garden in the office

In late autumn and winter, many people develop depressed mood, lethargy, and apathy. In such a "low season", floral design becomes especially important, and not only apartments, but also offices, where the majority of the working population spends almost all day.

Greening of office premises requires special attention. Here, more than anywhere else, you should take care of the style, to the best of the laconic, individual, "working" on the image of the company. Not all indoor plants will be able to grow in large rooms, where there is a lot of office equipment and drastically reduced humidity - one of the determining factors for growing plants.

For those who want to spend office landscaping, it should be remembered that adjusting the illumination or, for example, the humidity in the office space is not an easy task. But the office can afford a lot that housewives are unlikely to do, including the acquisition temporary greening crops, which, after a certain time, are simply thrown away. Such plants, as a rule, are inexpensive, retain their decorative effect for 1-3 months and fully "work off" the capital invested in their acquisition.

There is an even more utilitarian approach to office landscaping: rental of plants... By the way, the latter option in Western Europe is considered a sign of good taste. Rolled flowers can be much more exotic, decorative, and expensive. As soon as you see the first signs of dysfunction in the plant, you can return it to its true owners, who will take all the necessary measures to "reanimate".

So, in the dull autumn-winter season, you want to create a good mood among your office employees. The solution to such a problem is possible in several ways, the most common of which are - coloristic, consisting in the selection of plants of a certain color range. Yellow and orange colors work best on a person. The list of plants that positively affect the emotional state of a person due to color includes beautifully blooming flowers with corollas painted in orange or yellow and variegated.

Among variegated plants, they are fairly well kept in offices codiaums... The shape of the leaves in different representatives of this genus is significantly different and allows you to keep a group of several codiaums without fear of uniformity. The main requirements of these plants are sufficient illumination and a temperature of at least 16 ° C. During the period of active growth, as a rule, from the beginning of February, the codiaum plant needs abundant watering and monthly feeding with complex mineral fertilizer.

Will feel like in the office without any problems aucuba japanese - a magnificent evergreen shrub with pointed ovoid leaves, colored bright green with many yellow spots. With good care, the plant can delight you not only with its elegant foliage, but also with bright red berries. Place the aucuba out of direct sunlight and in a cool place. If keeping low temperatures is impossible, then there is a risk of damage to the plant by aphids.

Variegated cacti - another plant that is amazing in terms of its positive effect on humans. There are no variegated cacti in nature, they belong to the so-called cultivars. For the first time such a plant was obtained by the Japanese breeder Watanabe in 1941. Since then, a huge number of variegated cacti have been obtained, whose color can be white, purple, and orange; at the same time, there are cacti with bicolor and multi-colored stems. In order to achieve the therapeutic effect that we are talking about, it is necessary to have not one cactus, but a group of these wonderful plants. Even a person who is completely indifferent to cacti cannot fail to appreciate their bright unusual beauty. A selection of variegated-stemmed cacti can decorate any office corner, including the head's office. Their maintenance in culture does not present any particular difficulties. Cacti should be given a well-lit area. During late autumn and winter, they practically do not need moisture, so it is better not to water them, but to spray them.

Various types are quite expensive and laborious to maintain columbians... These ampelous plants with long hanging shoots bear very bright flowers: cinnabar red or orange-yellow. Flowering continues in autumn and late winter for a long period of time. The most suitable option for the office is the glorious columnea (Columnea gloriosa) and its garden form Purpurea, least of all other members of the genus needing indirect (without spraying) air humidification. Columnaeus, like cacti, are best rented.

Very good blooming in autumn whiteperone drip - a small, abundantly branching shrub, attractive in which large and bright yellow-red bracts up to 10 cm in length. With skillful care, it blooms almost all year round. You can buy it as a culture of temporary gardening, since in February the plant needs strong pruning and loses its decorative effect.

A very similar culture, belonging to the same Acantacea family and more than suitable for the role of "herbal healer" for autumn mood swings, - pachystachis yellow... With sufficiently good lighting, this plant with large leaves, white flowers up to 5 cm long and for a long time not falling off bright yellow bracts thrives. Pachystachis is easy to care for and can be kept as a temporary gardening crop and as a permanent "office plant".

Clivia cinnabar often found on the windows of a wide variety of institutions - from corporate offices to savings banks and pharmacies. The leaves of the clivia are belt-shaped, dark green; the period of active growth occurs in spring and summer, flowering - in autumn-winter. Orange-red flowers 5-6 cm in size are collected 10-20 per peduncle up to 50 cm in height. Prefers bright places and relative coolness in winter (12-14 ° C), but can live at normal temperatures.

Potted varieties of the Compositae family, which bloom profusely during this period, will help to solve the problem of autumn-winter despondency in the most wonderful way. These include and dahlias, and large-flowered pot gerberas, characterized by a good bush shape, beautiful rich green foliage and an abundance of peduncles. Extremely decorative varietal chrysanthemums... Placing several pots of chrysanthemums among the permanent green inhabitants of your office, and thus creating luxurious color spots, is a very simple and pleasant solution to the problem.

Winter Garden

A winter garden in the house is the dream of any city dweller. Especially on cold, cloudy days or winter frosts. This dream is not as difficult to fulfill as it seems. Several ideas for a winter garden.

In the usual sense, a winter garden is a glazed, heated extension to a house, inhabited by numerous indoor plants. Usually this is a recreation area, sometimes the garden is used for work. Unlike the glazed veranda, the winter garden is not a walk-through room with access to the street (at least in winter). It maintains a constant temperature and humidity. The winter garden requires care and regular maintenance. If the plants are exotic, requiring special conditions of detention, it is better that a specialist is engaged in this.

For most people, a winter garden seems like a luxury and an unattainable dream. But is it? And is it necessary to build a separate room for it and hire a specialist?

About 100 years ago, a winter garden in a house was a rarity, it was not easy to arrange and maintain it. But in recent decades, new building materials have become available, such as double-glazed windows. Making an extension for a winter garden out of them or glazing a loggia is not a problem. Heaters with temperature sensors, air humidifiers, special lamps, warm floors and, most importantly, there are constantly numerous hybrids of indoor plants on sale for all tastes and requirements. Blooming at any time of the year, bushes and trees, creeping and curly, resistant to temperature changes, shade-tolerant and sun-loving.

You can arrange a winter garden in the room, under the stairs, and even in a niche. It is not difficult to do this in an ordinary well-lit room of your apartment, in an office; you can adapt a heated loggia or a closed veranda. The main thing is to use imagination and comply with the necessary requirements.

There should be enough light in the conservatory. The poor light of a cloudy December day is not enough, even if there is glass from all sides. You can also pick up shade-tolerant plants that are accustomed to such conditions in nature. But it's better to take care of artificial lighting. Many houseplants grow beautifully when illuminated with conventional energy saving bulbs.

Air humidity.
Almost all indoor plants are forest dwellers, except for desert cacti, of course. They do not tolerate dry air well. Fan heaters, many types of electric heaters dry the air, it is better not to use them to heat the winter garden.

A large number of plants in one room will naturally increase the humidity. They evaporate moisture through the leaves. But you can also use humidifiers, or put an aquarium to artificially increase humidity.

Almost all tropical indoor plants do not tolerate sudden changes in air temperature, subtropical plants respond gratefully to a slight difference between day and night temperatures. There should be no cold drafts in the winter garden. But regular ventilation is essential.

Plants for the garden are selected according to their requirements for air temperature. The winter garden can be cool, with an air temperature of 15-18, up to a maximum of 20 degrees Celsius. In such a garden, azaleas, cyclamens, poinsettia, and clerodendrum bloom beautifully in winter. From palm trees, you can choose shade-tolerant chamedorea or cold-tolerant washingtonia. All unpretentious houseplants are also perfectly adapted: chlorophytum, sansivieria, hoya, many begonias, scindapsus, most ferns. Conifers like araucaria, for example, also love coolness.

In a tropical garden, with a normal temperature of 22-25 degrees, you can grow bromeliads and aroids, palms and ficuses. Lemons and tangerines will decorate your garden, they will saturate the air with phytoncides. In such a warm winter garden, monsters and dieffenbachia will quickly grow, orchids will bloom.

In addition to compliance with all these conditions, you also need place the plants correctly... The most light-loving - closer to light sources, shade-tolerant - in shaded corners. But the most important thing is to arrange the plants beautifully, harmoniously, so that each of them looks good from different angles. Do not forget to place accents correctly - to emphasize the slenderness of the fuchsia tree, the beautiful painted leaves of alocasia and pay attention to the small blooming Saintpaulia. Your taste will tell you how to do this.

how plant plants is also not an unimportant question. There are two options: the first is to plant everything together in large boxes or specially made depressions in the floor, the second - each must grow in its own pot.

In the first case, there is more room for the roots, when planting together, moisture is better preserved, but you need to select plants according to the type of soil, taking into account its acidity, nutritional value and other parameters. In addition, it is very difficult to transplant a diseased flower without damaging others.

Planting plants in separate containers is more convenient. They can be moved, choosing the best location, watered and fertilized as recommended for each particular plant. With the onset of severe frosts, the most thermophilic species can be moved to the residential area. The disadvantage of this method is that a large number of pots of different sizes does not always look beautiful.

Most often, a compromise option is chosen: the plants are grown in separate containers, assembled together and the gaps between them are covered with expanded clay or pebbles. Often, climbing or creeping species are planted, using them as ground cover.

History and modernity of winter gardens

There is no exact information about when the winter garden was first equipped. These corners of nature were settled in royal and royal palaces, castles of noble nobles, houses of wealthy merchants, etc. In Russia, the first winter garden was equipped by monks on Solovki. Thanks to their efforts, the Spaso-Preobrazhensky Monastery acquired its own oasis of eternal summer. The monks grew in it not only outlandish overseas plants, but also vegetables for the monastic diet.

The main condition for maintaining a winter garden is to maintain the optimal temperature required by heat-loving plants. In the first rooms of this kind, a hole was dug into which hot coal was poured. This material smolders for a long time, constantly emitting heat. Stove heating was used to create the required microclimate.
