The cactus: indoor plants

The first of the indoor plants we will talk about is the cactus; in fact, if it is able to survive in the desert, it can certainly be able to resist even inside your home. Of all the plants that require a low level of maintenance, the Cactus is considered by many to be the best, as it does not need frequent irrigation and can be left alone for a couple of days, should you intend to go away for the weekend or for a period of three / four days. It will be sufficient to place them on a windowsill, near a window to make sure that they get the right sunlight, and not to repeat watering until the water has completely dried from the container in which the cactus has been stored.

As it is a fairly large plant, it is particularly suitable for placing in apartments or houses with high ceilings and plenty of free space. Ficus Benjamina prefers indirect sunlight, so it is preferable to place your plant in a corner of a room with windows.

The Philodendron is a houseplant native to Colombia, very easy to maintain, as it can easily tolerate dry air and semi-shade, better than most plants. It does not require many care, but it is still necessary to add a little fertilizer to the water every two weeks during the growing season. Its dimensions are anything but contained, especially in height, as it can reach two meters in height; for this reason, it must be placed in houses with a rather high ceiling, a bit like it happened for Ficus benjamina. Its leaves are hanging, bright green and about fifty to sixty centimeters long. During the cold months it will be necessary to water it occasionally,
