Little Guide To Red Roses

From the days of Romeo and Juliet to modern times, a red rose has been synonymous with love. Today, roses are popular all around the world.

Plants In The Dining Room

Plants In The Dining Room

It may seem strange that only one in four dining rooms contains indoor plants. This area is widely used for entertaining (and impressing) friends, there are ample horizontal surfaces for housing pots and the location is close to the kitchen which makes for easy watering. In addition, the decor is often sparse and would benefit from attractive leaves and colorful flowers.

The problem is one of space – most dining rooms are quite small and are filled with the chairs, table and serving surfaces they have to contain. Floor-standing pots would hamper free movement or could be knocked over wher chairs are pulled back – plants must never, never turn a room into an obstacle course!

Cineraria

A well-grown Cineraria (Senecio cruentus) is always a welcome in your home. Masses of Daisy-like flowers cover the soft, heart-shaped leaves and the color range is impressive – white, blue, pink, purple and red varieties are available. The showiest strain is the Grandiflora group – large-flowered plants about 18 in high. The tallest Cinerarias are varieties belonging to the Stellata group, reaching a height of 2 ft or more with small, star-shaped flowers. At the other end of the scale is the Nana group, small and compact, with masses of brightly-colored flowers.

Buy plants with some open flowers and masses of unopened buds. They shoud last for 4-6 weeks. Unfortunately, Cineraria can be a disappointing plant and will colapse in a week or two in a hot room or if it is not watered properly.
