The 5 Toughest Houseplants

From among the huge range of indoor plants the title of the most versatile plants rightfully deserves the title of crops with strict lines and forms. They are suitable for offices and work corners, and for the living room or hall, and for living rooms. But to many, austere stars seem too unfriendly and prim and proper. A certain haughtiness of such plants is indeed inherent, but in character they are far from being as unfriendly as the rumor mill says. They are indispensable accents in modern interiors, capable of transforming the perception of space and atmosphere. Incomparable and regal, these austere plants are not just the most expressive, but also the most powerful in their influence on the design of culture rooms.

On how house plants, their lines, forms and character affect the interior, we usually think of only when choosing a place for them in the house. Some plants make a room more cozy and secluded, some make it more cheerful and festive, while others are more formal and underline the restrained work environment. And if a plant-optimist, romantic and creating a neutral lush background culture is liked by all, but the much stricter plants are often called aggressive, prim, cold. Their restraint, classical lines, echoing the architectural forms and geometry, "sharp" angles and severe silhouettes do make a radically different impression. And, accordingly, in a different way affect the mood and emotions. But do not consider them unfriendly - such cultures are indispensable in phytodesign.

In the interior, indoor plants with strict forms are used:

  • as an expressive decoration of modern interiors, to reveal the style and lines dominating the interior;
  • as a finishing, harmonizing touch;
  • as a graphic and geometric accent;
  • to visually expand space;
  • as an eye-catching element for textures and materials, colors or motifs of wall finishes and furniture;
  • to emphasize play with light;
  • for zoning and visual separation of space;
  • as a counterweight to furniture;
  • to bring order to unexpressive design;
  • as a focal point;
  • as a substitute for elaborate decor and professional design with multiple accents and accessories;
  • to create a special solemnity;
  • as an accent that focuses attention on the details and draws attention to the interior and its decoration;
  • as a universal landscaper, not changing the psychological background in the room;
  • as a replacement for a large decoration;
  • for increasing the efficiency, concentration and reduction of distractions in the working areas.

And although austere plants are inferior in number, they have long ago won a place on the list of the most sought-after and "reliable" houseplants.

In many ways, the perception of a plant - romantic, cheerful and lush appearance or austere primness - depends on the form of cultivation and plant formation. Thus, almost all indoor lianas can become austere if they are attached to an appropriate support. Cutting, forming boles turn into austere accents and room laurels, myrtles, cypresses, boxwoods, and other representatives of the woody. Ampelous succulents can look like a frozen architectural miracle in their hanging baskets... But there are also indoor plants, for which strict primness is a natural and not requiring external intervention.

Let's take a closer look at the houseplants with the strictest structure and silhouette - real prim stars, regal, majestic and amazingly spectacular.
