Suitable plants for the terraplanter


Babby Tears

Baby's tears plants will take brief periods of intense sunlight, but look their best in bright, filtered light. Plants growing in full sun may develop brown, scorched leaves. Baby's Tears plants like bright, indirect light but no direct sun.

Baby's tears plants are thirsty, and they never like to dry out. If your plants do dry out, you'll notice a dramatic wilting take place. Water them quickly, and within a day they should recover. Baby's tears houseplants will require slightly less water in the winter months. It's fine for the terraplanters surface to be dry, but the roots should feel slightly moist.

Begonia hirsuta

The different groups of begonias have different cultural requirements but most species come from tropical regions and therefore they and their hybrids require warm temperatures. Most are forest understory plants and require bright shade; few will tolerate full sun, especially in warmer climates. In general, begonias require a well-drained growing medium that is neither constantly wet nor allowed to dry out completely.

Dionaea muscipula

There is only one species of Venus Flytrap - Dionaea muscipula - but dozens of wonderful cultivars are available. Most forms consist of a small rosette of leaves (called petioles), each of which ends in a trap. Venus Flytraps need direct sunlight for healthy growth. If you’re growing your plant indoors, choose a bright sunny windowsill. Insufficient sunlight will cause your flytrap’s leaves to become weak and floppy, and the insides of its traps will lack red coloration.

Adiantum young

Commonly known as Green Mountain maidenhair fern, this medium-sized, deciduous, terrestrial fern, grows about 2 feet (60 cm) wide and 1 to 2 feet (30 to 60 cm) high. An enchanting fragrance originates from the maidenhair fern, which decorates rooms, gardens and balconies. The maidenhair fern is very undemanding, but there still is a certain need for care in order for it to grow healthy and powerful for many years.

Moss

Mosses, or the taxonomic division Bryophyta, are small, non-vascular flowerless plants that typically form dense green clumps or mats, often in damp or shady locations. When moss is grown properly, you will see it begin to thrive and grow on its own within six weeks. Some moss varieties can take longer to fully flourish – even up to two years. However, you will see a healthy moss begin to prosper within this six week period.

Chia

Chia seeds are the edible seeds of Salvia hispanica, a flowering plant in the sage family. Sprouting time is 4 to 7 days. This will depend on the heat in the room you are doing the sprouting. When the sprouts are ¼ inch long, move them into direct sunlight. This will green them up.

Alsobia Dianthiflora

Stolons (“whiskers” with rosettes) are usually 20 to 25 cm in length and grows quite slowly throughout the year. With age, the plant loses its decorative effect turning leaves yellow and falling off, so alsobiya needs regular rejuvenation. It likes airing, but does not tolerate drafts, gas combustion products and tobacco smoke. Leaves can be cleaned with a dry brush, but not with a damp rag. The leaves of the plant are fragile and easily damaged, so you should be careful

The rabbit foot fern (Davallia fejeensis) can be grown outdoors in warm climates (USDA hardiness zones 10 to 11), but is commonly grown as a houseplant. The decorative fern's distinctive light brown fuzzy rhizomes resemble rabbit feet, giving the fern its name.

Dendrobium Aphyllum Orchid

Found in almost every botanical garden and many amateur collections, the Dendrobium aphyllum orchid is an attractive and easily cultivated with long, pendulous stems that become leafless in the resting period and, for a few weeks during the spring, carry numerous, pinkish violet, fragrant flowers with a pale yellow or whitish lip. The best environment for domestication of the Dendrobium aphyllum orchid is in an airy environment with the humidity not too high (about 60-70%) and has relatively light (50-70% natural light). The best time to buy orchids for grafting is from the end of autumn to winter, when the leaves fall out and plant go to the rest season, so when graft, its does not have much care, only care when the spring begins to sprout new flower buds.

Platycerium

The Staghorn Fern is an unusual plant, being both an air plant and a fern, though it bears little resemblance to most ferns. In its natural environment of tropical forests, the plant grows on tree trunks or rocks, absorbing moisture from the humid air and collecting nutrients from the falling leaves of overhead trees. Most typically, the Platycerium is mounted on a surface and displayed like a piece of art in its own right.

Pinguicula

Pinguicula, commonly known as the butterworts, is a genus of carnivorous flowering plants in the family Lentibulariaceae. They use sticky, glandular leaves to lure, trap, and digest insects in order to supplement the poor mineral nutrition they obtain from the environment. Partly sunny growing conditions. Great for sunny windowsills. As butterworts grow worldwide, they come from varied climates. Temperate Pinguicula need cold winters while they are dormant to thrive. The warm temperate species from the U.S. tolerate light frost and brief freezes.

Phalaenopsis orchid

There are about 60 true species of Phalaenopsis orchids. These plants have been extensively hybridized and there are thousands of hybrids, ranging from the stark, classic white hybrid moth orchid to jewel-like miniatures with clouds of yellow and candy pink blooms. They can be grown outdoors in warm, humid conditions that are damp but not soggy, in a location that is shady but bright (no direct sun). More often, these plants are grown as indoor plants, where successful growth means finding the right balance between humidity, temperature, light, and airflow. Their long-lasting flowers are held on arching branches and open successively. A single multi-branching flower spike can have more than 20 flowers, and individual flowers can last for weeks.

Microsorum Diversifolium

Native to Australia and some parts of New Zealand, commonly known as Kangaroo paw fern is a epiphytic evergreen with firm leathery fronds that are oddly shaped and vary in size. The kangaroo paw fern only grows to be about a foot tall but can spread out to 2-3 feet in width. These ferns like warm temperatures 70°-75°F (21.1°-23.9°C) in the spring, summer, and fall, but prefer cooler temperatures 60°-65°F (15.6°-18.3°C) and brighter light in the winter.
