Care of diefembaquia, ceropegia and anturio
Diefembaquia is a plant that comes from tropical forests of America, where it grows in the undergrowth. We can find it in different varieties and all of them are characterized by having large sheets, with different spots and colors.
Among the different varieties that we can find today in the market, we have the dieffenbachia camila, with white leaves in the central area and green at the edges, or the dieffenbachia "green magic", whose leaves are completely green except the nerve, which is white. The most common diefembaquia is the "compact" variety, with a green and white marbled all over the leaf.
He Plant size also depends on the variety, since some can take a lot of height. We have to place them in a bright place but no direct sun and we must keep the always wet land.
For the plant to grow homogeneously, we will have to turn the plant every so often. This will prevent growth from focusing only on the brightest area of the plant. This is very important in all plants with large leaves.
When it grows a lot and the leaves below are lost, we can cut it and make cuttings to reproduce it. Another important feature of this plant is that it is toxic, its juice causes throat irritation.
This plant comes from South Africa. It is creeper, with a spiral growth shape and very floriferous. It is always blooming, not in large quantities, but it always has one or two flowers open.
These, although they are not very striking in terms of color, are very original since they are shaped like a small parachute. Further, they give off a very interesting aroma. This plant needs a bright place, but do not over water it, but we must wait for the earth to dry to water again.
One of the more flowering plants for the interior It is the anthurium. It will be practically all year blooming with really spectacular flowers. In the market, we can find different varieties based on size and color, although the most common are the red ones. The young leaves have a very bright color and the whitish central part (spadix), which turns yellowish as it matures until it reaches a green color in old age.
The anthurium needs a bright place, without direct sun, since it would damage the leaves and also the flowers. The ambient humidity must be high, so that in dry areas it will be necessary to spray continuously, and the earth must also be always wet.
