Why not put flowers near the bed?Where is your favorite violet not exactly the place? Do cacti help fight computer radiation? The answers to these questions are in our material on the 10 most inappropriate places for indoor plants.This article owes its birth to the comment of our reader on the social network that flowers should never be placed on the nightstand next to the bed. Indeed, if they get hit by a book, accidentally knocked over with an elbow, or knocked over in the dark - the sad end is no more than a matter of time. On the Internet - including - you can find countless tips for choosing indoor plants and behind them, charts of the greenest "pets" and recommendations for their placement in the house. But there is surprisingly little information about what places in the apartment are not suitable for plants at all. But there are actually enough of them - especially if you are an inexperienced florist or you have children and curious animals in your house. In this article, we have collected 10 places where it is better not to keep flowers. On the bedside table In the morning you, without openingeye, reach for the alarm; without looking, put a book, mug or glasses on the nightstand; just gesticulating violently in a dream. One awkward movement of your hand - and a flower in a pot or vase nestled near the bed will be on the floor. There are of course a number of plants in the bathroom,predominantly tropical, for which heat and moisture are practically their native habitat, but there are still not so many of them. In addition, as a rule, there are no windows in Russian bathrooms, which means that such conditions will be suitable only for those plants that, in addition to a specific climate, tolerate artificial lighting well. On a cabinet Or on a high shelf.The main reason why you shouldn't place flowers under the ceiling is the difficulty of watering them. Not only is it simply inconvenient to reach with a watering can each time to the coveted pot, it is also unsafe for the plant itself, which can be accidentally overturned, and for everything under it: when watering blindly, there is a risk of accidentally spilling water and not even noticing it. Near the computer The idea that cacti canneutralize harmful radiation, nothing more than a common myth. In fact, neither a cactus nor any other plant will make working at a computer less harmful, and even such a neighborhood will not be very useful for them. Why? Firstly, the ventilation of the computer dries the air, and dry air is the main enemy of plants, secondly, they do not like noise, which is also a source of working equipment, and thirdly, radiation affects flowers in the same way as per person. In the kitchen It would seem that in the kitchen flowers are the mostplace, but this is true only if two important conditions are met. First, they do not stand close at hand and do not interfere with your work, and you, in turn, do not strive to accidentally hit the pot with your elbow. Secondly, the kitchen is spacious enough to highlight the flowers in a well-lit and ventilated (but by no means in a draft!) Place where they will not be touched by heat, steam and drops of fat during cooking. Where children play Everything is obvious here:if there are children in the house who can at least crawl, any object that can be knocked over becomes a potential source of danger. And if your favorite cactus does not fall on the child's head, then thorns stuck in the palm of your hand or just a mountain of earth on the floor are also not the most pleasant consequences. And the plant itself, if you drop it from a window sill or stand, accidentally hit it while running or hit it with a ball, will only suffer. On battery Radiator during heating - sourcehot and dry air, which means that the number one enemy of almost all plants. And even if you do not put them directly on the battery, you need to make sure that the heat emanating from it does not reach the windowsill. And if this still happens and there is nowhere to rearrange the flowers, then all kinds of gardeners' tricks will help you: protective films or screens, air humidifiers, trays with water, or just wet towels on the battery. In the animal access area If you have a petanimal and at the same time you want your houseplant to live a long and happy life, make sure that the four-legged friend has no way to get to it. Boredom, curiosity, poor parenting, or just a lack of vitamins are the reasons why your cat or dog gnaws at leaves, bites off a bud, or breaks up soil in a pot. In the open sun Window sill is the most populara place for indoor plants, but few of them like exposure to direct sunlight. With the exception of desert-growing succulents, almost all indoor flowers prefer diffused light. That is why it is better not to put them on the southern windowsill without any obstacles to the sun's rays. On the aisle In the current industrial age, manmore and more strives for nature, and therefore we try to arrange a small garden even in our apartment. Not only cacti on the windowsill are becoming more and more popular, but also plants of all sizes in tubs on the floor or in pots on the walls. And the more, the better! This kind of eco-fashion is great, but make sure one of your plants is not in an aisle, in an archway, or near a door. The consequences can be, as always, sad for both the flower and the owner: firstly, there is a risk of tripping over the plant, especially in the dark, and secondly, in such places there is often a draft on the floor, which is no less destructive for flowers, than dry air.
