Indoor gardens can be very interesting and lively design elements in a house. Apart from lending colour and vibrancy to you room, indoor nature works on our health. Plants release oxygen, which keeps the room fresh by filtering pollution and absorbing dust. Indoor gardens require creativity. It will not do to just fill the room with plant pots, flower vases or suspended greenery. The gardens platforms and plant containers will be part of your decor.
One aspect of an indoor garden can be a vertical, long and narrow platform on top of which to grow plants. It could be a cabinet or a room partitioner. Another way is to grow different kinds of flowers and plants in decorative vases and organise them in a planned cluster, thus creating a garden. Conversely, you can place them individually in strategic places within the room to give it a scattered garden effect.
You could dedicate a little space from floor to ceiling and plant two or three tall plants, or even small trees. You can also design garden beds on the floor where you can grow different plants. You can also infuse the plants with lighting, which could be the main sources of light in the room. Another way could be to design wall cabinets and furniture with outward shelves and platforms on which you can either grow plants or just place flower vases.

Create a “living wall”, giving it a natural accent, where plants literally grow on the walls. You could grow one or several plants on your living wall. Complement the wall with individual containers or other garden designs of your choosing. However, all gardens and plants need sustenance. You need to consistently water the plants in a way that it doesn’t mess up your house.
