Few plants are as high in demand as the bamboo. The variety of design, hardiness, and exotic appeal have helped to make this plant a trendy choice. They are great for the home and the workplace because they do not require a lot of watering. There is actually a myth that the bamboo plant does not die unless someone has been unfaithful to the owner of the plant. The many shapes and varieties of bamboo have led them to be included in many floral arrangements. Make sure you place your bamboo plant in an area with adequate room: you will want guests to see its elegant trunk, and you may need to leave room for the bamboo to get taller. Make sure to clean and maintain the leaves of your bamboo plant, especially if you decide on a silk bamboo plant. You will not regret your decision to decorate with bamboo!
Arranging the Perfect Flower Display for Every Occasion
A flower arrangement that fits its surroundings is one of the basic goals of flower arranging. The reason for the bouquet should be the overruling factor when considering to design it. For example, when you are designing an arrangement for a funeral, there are some flowers that are natural choices because of their look and meaning, such as tulips and daisies in gentle colors. Silk grasses, unusual and bright flowers, and topiary designs are great if the arrangement is meant to be a housewarming gift or a "get better soon" arrangement. Of course, roses are the flower of love, and are great choices in arrangements intended for someone special. In the end, it is all about understanding your audience. Keep in mind their likes and dislikes and apply them as you make choices on the colors, flower types, and arrangement style you will use. If it doesn't look right the first time, just try again. This is an advantage of using artificial flowers: it is easy to pull out what you do not like and add something else without risking injury to one of the flowers.
How to Fertilize your Plants
If you are relatively new to owning a potted plant, it is important to know that your plant will require regular fertilization. Fertilizer provides nutrients that younger plants (including most potted plants) need to thrive. Also, due to the fact that their soil nutrients are limited to what is in the pot, and those same nutrients are being drowned out by constant watering, it is important to fertilize. However, fertilizing potted plants is usually a pretty simple process. The most common way to fertilize your plant is to buy packages of fertilizer in your local garden store. However, not each fertilizer is exactly the same, so make sure to follow any given instructions. There are also many fertilizers they can be put in to the water as you water the plants. This is a nice option that allows you to take care of both watering and fertilizing the same time.
One of the best loved silk flower varieties is the tulip. Tulips' classic look and tall, thin stems with long delicate leaves make them readily identifiable. Because of their versatility, tulips can be used as decorations in a myriad of ways. Tulips are unique in that they are not stuck in a certain classification in terms of festivities or a particular time of year. In contrast, roses belong to the world of romance and appreciation, and should not necessarily be used for other decorative purposes (such as a "just because" bouquet). Many plants or flower arrangements are so "busy" or intricate that they need a good amount of empty space around them to look good. Tulips, however, are elegantly simple and do not need such accommodations to look attractive. Tulips are wonderful for flower arrangements: they look lovely by themselves, and they add color and charm, without being overbearing, in more diverse arrangements.
