Nothing can replace the effect and properties of plants, even indoors. A common plant growth gives life and inspires joy of living. Plants provide much oxygen the day, which helps concentration. And in winter when heating dries the air, plants need moisture return. In addition, they create a climate conducive for themselves, for their own growth.
Nor should we neglect the aspect that transmits visual and fragrant plants that stimulate our senses. Another advantage is the relaxation that we can deliver a complete floor: care for their plants, can be a great escape from the stresses of everyday life. The plants require our time, they need our care, we must be aware of them to avoid possible diseases before they spread, are all aspects that will make us forget and turn the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Things to consider:
When choosing a plant, consider the brightness of the room where it will be placed. In general, mottled foliage varieties require more light than foliage plants green. And dark leaves, such as philodendron Dracaena or need less light.
From November to February, plants may lack light. They fade and new leaves are small and yellow. Then we have to lower the temperature and closer to the windows, which has been removed from the blinds and curtains, so they will be lighter. Instead, since March, is once again put the curtains on the windows and make a regular rotation of the pots to promote uniform growth of plants and avoid problems caused by excess light, as a gradual fading or the appearance of stains.
We recommend watering and fertilizing more often from March to October, when plants are growing and gradually reduce irrigation and fertilization of October to February, when they are “resting.”
Attention to water
We have to have one thing very clear: we must avoid watering little and often and let the earth dry between watering until the water flow through the drainage holes of the pot and remove excess water accumulated on the plate. However, plants like they were spray on the leaves from time to time. We recommend leaving the water a few hours rest before using to remove chlorine and the temperature of the room.

There is no doubt that if we had a large open space like a loft for example, this would be ideal kitchen design. The energy element that stands out is that associated with metal, also counting the presence of the wood element throughout decorative motifs. This energy relationship is perfectly harmonized by the presence of the water element, besides the fact that the fire element here would also be present through the stove. Only the earth element to be missing completely take constructive energy cycle, which could be achieved with the dishes, utensils and other equipment typical of every kitchen. Here we have a fully functional in the predominantly white element, associated with metal energy. The order and cleanliness are present here as basic principles of Feng Shui to any construction. The location of the stove (fire) is slightly separated on the sink (water). It could place an object between decorative wood associated with the item, such as a decorative plant not too large.
The first impression one receives is based creative presence of the element earth (earthy yellow colors) along the metal element (furniture of such material and its associated colors-white and silver-gray), which favors full kitchen provided when I have energy characteristics (flying stars) associated with precarious health and/or accidents. In this open space, with the image of a leather sofa in the corner of the fund, which would have a beige carpet and blue would be represented in perfect harmony with the elements metal and water. Consideration may also be present, in some ways, the fire element in the texture of the carpet itself.
Here we would have a beautiful composition of elements. First, is the water with the blue colors of the background, and secondly, would the wood through the plants, because the furniture just have this energy. We could also say that somehow the metal is present through the shades of gray and white. We now describe three environments. The first would be primarily representing earth energy and orange tones. As would complement the wood of the plant and the metal because of its tone sofa beige. The second is an energetic atmosphere in perfect harmony through the timber (flowers), fire (light), earth (yellow hues) and metal (silver gray). Just be lacking water to get the full energy cycle. The third one is predominantly water and metal.
In the bedroom, the predominant shades are white and silver gray, and some references to the element fire (colored purple). What is most striking is the perfect housekeeping, basic principles of Feng Shui. The dressing is ideal for maintaining order and cleanliness required by this philosophy, while the photo showing the bath introduces the total priority of the water element. In this series has a bathroom cabinet reminiscent of perfect symmetry. Its main power is ground (shades of orange). The flowers give a special touch in turn represents the wood element. The environment contains the following metal element (gray colors silver and white) while the third has nuances Earth in the background, the wood element (flowers) and fire (candles). Of course water and metal are implicit in any bathroom.
