What to do if standard air freshenersdo not bring the desired scent? From our article you will find out which houseplants can be used to bring pleasant smells into the interior. Houseplants not only decorate any room with their presence. For what they are so loved - they are the finest scents that spread throughout the house, working harder than a purchased sachet or air freshener. In addition, the smell from the plant is natural, unlike chemical analogues, which means that at least one pot with a flower in the room will be very beneficial to health. What should you choose? Plant 1: Orchid Queen of Houseplants -. It opens up a whole new world to its owners. There are hundreds of varieties, a large number of orchid clubs. A whole business is built on these flowers, and in general, this houseplant is considered an expensive hobby. Accordingly, caring for an orchid is not easy. The first thing to remember is that this plant is afraid of direct sunlight. That is, the light should only be diffused so that the flowering is regular and pleasing to the eye for as long as possible. The rays should be darkened, but if there are too few of them, you need to purchase lamps with fluorescent lamps. The night temperature should be at least 12 degrees. It is necessary to water the plant 2-3 times a week. Plant 2:eucharis "Eucharis" is translated into Russian as "the most pleasant". Another name for this houseplant is the Amazonian lily. Flowers bloom twice a year, the aroma is so pleasant and delicate that it immediately creates the most sophisticated atmosphere. Eucharis is a rather large plant, which has an intolerance to temperature extremes, but very unpretentious. It should be planted in a cramped pot, and rarely watered - just a couple of times a week during the flowering period. The dormant period that follows allows the plant to gain strength without losing its beauty. Plant 3:hoya A strong sweet smell, especially in the evenings, will also be given by hoya - wax ivy. Liana-like in appearance, this houseplant does not require complex handling. Having chosen the right place (windows facing either east or west), when the first buds appear, you need not touch the hoya and let it bloom calmly, watering abundantly. It will bloom for about six months. At other times, the plant needs to be bathed, dipping it in warm water for 40 minutes. Plant 4:lemon Lemons, tangerines or other fruiting - they can be attributed to the same group of plants. Ideal for interior decoration, as they bloom beautifully, and the fruits delight with their appearance and taste. And the leaves attract with a pleasant and fresh scent. It can even be grown from a seed, but it must be done very carefully, since the lemon is very capricious. It is worth replanting it a couple of times a year, watering it more often (it is better to spray it), and picking up a sunny and warm place, constantly turning the pot so that the tree does not grow one-sided. Plant 5:jasmine Homemade jasmine will decorate your interior, and the smell of flowers is so strong that they are often used to make perfumes and eau de toilette.

Plant 6:araucaria You can also keep a coniferous plant in the house, and not necessarily for the New Year. Evergreen araucaria has a pleasant and tart coniferous aroma, saturating the air with forest freshness and adding a special charm to the interior. can grow up to two meters in height, loves diffused lighting and requires a high level of humidity. In summer, araucaria must be sprayed twice a day. Plant 7:geranium Geranium, or pelargonium, grows in many people who chose it precisely because of the unpretentiousness of the plant, which is characterized by fast and intense flowering. Geranium can please the eye with its appearance at least all year round and is absolutely not afraid of the sun. The spicy tart aroma, exuded not by flowers, but by leaves, drives away moths and midges. Frequent watering is not necessary, but it is usually advised to add water as soon as the earthen lump is slightly dry. Geranium will look great both on the windowsill and behind it, attracting with its aesthetic appearance and color variety, but we must remember that at low temperatures it still stops blooming. Plant 8:myrtle Another evergreen plant, considered a symbol of purity and purity, since according to legend it was myrtle that brought Adam from paradise. Essential oils are extracted from the leaves and shoots, the dried leaves are used as a spice, and the aroma is not only mesmerizing, but also has antibacterial properties. The smell of myrtle can kill up to 85% of germs in a room. The foliage should be sprayed in summer, the flower should be watered regularly, and as little as possible in winter, observing a dormant period. Plant 9:mirabilis A very simple plant that exudes a wonderful aroma that can replace any flavoring. And pink, red, white and yellow flowers perfectly diversify your balcony or windowsill, blooming in the afternoon and staying so all night. Watering is required once a week, and fertilizing is needed several times per season. This is where the complexities of care end, and all summer mirabilis will delight the sight and smell. Opinion of the Editorial Board: - Strongly smelling flowers are not very good for a house, and especially for a bedroom. With allergies or too much smell, headaches may occur. And as a rule, everything that smells strongly or luxuriantly blooms, is short-lived, especially if you do not follow the recommendations for care. Therefore, it is better to spend a little time, to admire each of the plants, to feel the fragrance and choose the most pleasant. Or take plants with good herbs. For example, spicy herbs, which smell delicious, and are useful in food - laurel, mint, thyme, lavender, savory, dill, onions.
