The main criterion for plant selection is the room style, color and area – a small plant in large space will be lost, the proportions of the grown up plant must correspond to the height of the room, the area. Also important is the background in which the plant will be: the walls of the room, the shape and texture of the leaf of the plant, the blossoms, and the micro climate of the room – the sunlight, the temperature.

It is very easy to emote into the role of florist and put the pots with flowers everywhere wherever is free space in the room. It is necessary to avoid this extreme: it is better to have one or two expressive pots with interesting plants or, if there is space, create a group of several plants – the green island.

In the modern interiors are suitable metal, glass, glass fiber pots. Fashionable copper, galvanized cans. Metal highlights the plant’s texture and fits in the modern or techno-style interior. In the larger metal dish more fits the plants with bigger leaves: dracena, diphenbachia, peperomy.

In the classic interior, ceramic pots remain irreplaceable, croquettes of wicker or wood dishes are perfectly for a rustic style homestead. Recently,  non traditional dishes are the trend: cylinders, ovals, but the shape has not to interfere with the interior so that the dish in the environment does not appear to have accidentally entered like a foreign body. It is best to choose a dish together with the plant.
