9 Plants

1–FOLIAGE: What is a foliage plant? Foliage plants are decorative with big leaves and are used mostly to give color to the piece. They were discovered in the early 1900s by a group of farmers in Africa. They make good office plants because of the minimal amount of watering needed, typically only water these plants every two weeks. You want to gradually move the plant from a shady area to a sunny area, as it may shock the plant. This type of plant would not grow in a cold environment; however, a room-temperature environment and plenty of sunlight will provide the best results for the plant. This type of plant is tropical and needs water gradually. Here is the rule of thumb for keeping a plant alive for longer periods:
  1. Always keep a good size pot for bearing purposes.
  2. Water the base per the plant instructions.
  3. Always keep them in bright daylight.
  4. Talk to them at all times.
  5. For a better appearance, wipe the leaves perfectly.
  6. Study and educate yourself about the plants.
  7. Keep them out of the reach of household animals. 
2–Dracaena: Dracaena can be used as office plants as well as house plants. The origin of this plant is Africa, and there are over fifty types of Dracaena in the world. They are good for indoor use. To keep Dracaena longer, keep them indoors and in a sunny and well-lit area. For a longer lifetime for the plant, water it every two weeks and keep the soil moist. Dracaena has its own fragrance; however, it has some toxins so it may not be good for household pets, such as dogs and cats. The plant may cause vomiting with blood, and anorexia in household pets. Always give the plant a bath. Cut the yellow leaves off with scissors and trim the tips of the leaves to look fresh. In the wild, the height of the plant may be over fifty feet tall and they may live for over 150 years. For indoor purposes, they are dwarf and may grow up to five or six feet tall.  Do not overwater them, it may kill the plant. Watch for dark brown leaves because it is an indication of overwatering. 3–PRAYER PLANT: The prayer plant is unique. It raises its leaves during the day and, at night, the leaves go up together like a little kid’s hands in prayer. Taking care of prayer plants is not difficult; their oval leaves need the right temperature, humidity, lighting, and water. Because city water has so many chemicals, water general house plants with filtered water. The prayer plant is an easy house plant to take care of. Water them once a week and always talk to them, clean them, and enjoy the beauty of the plant. Too much direct light can be hard on delicate leaves, causing issues like leaf scorching or fading leaf colors. However, prayer plants will rarely flower in low-light situations. So, if your goal is to get your plant to flower, you’ll need to find an appropriate balance between too much and too little light. 4–SNAKE PLANT: Snake plants are grown in any low or high light. They grow more if they are in a brighter area, especially outdoors. Snake plants like the light because it allows for more growth. This plant needs a warm, suitable temperature that is above 55°F (12°C). Watering should be about five days apart. Before watering the soil, make sure it is dry and then spread the water all over the soil. Unlike some household plants, the snake plant produces oxygen throughout the night, while also taking in carbon dioxide (CO2), a natural byproduct of breathing. This characteristic makes the snake plant perfect for home or bedroom decoration because of its ability to improve air quality. These tough plants thrive in any light level, from low to high. Typically, they grow quickly in brighter light, but strong direct sunlight burns the leaves, especially when the plants are outdoors. An ideal spot indoors is about ten feet away from a west or south window. Are snake plants toxic to the skin? Snake plants have low-severity toxicity for humans due to the presence of saponin chemicals, which can poison anyone who ingests its leaves. Symptoms of poisoning may include vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, and excessive salivation. Physical contact does not cause any adverse reaction. The snake plant, commonly referred to as mother-in-law’s tongue, is a resilient succulent that can grow anywhere from six inches to several feet. In addition to providing a bit of ambiance, snake plants have several health benefits:
  1. They filter indoor air.
