House Plants TEMPERATURE

Foliage plants usually grow satisfactorily in the home because these plants normally like high temperatures. African violets also like a warm room.


Foliage plants usually grow satisfactorily in the home because these plants normally like high temperatures. African violets also like a warm room.

There are many cool plants which fail to thrive in the home because temperatures of 70° or over are the rule, rather than the exception. Under such conditions of high temperature, the hydrangea, cineraria, cyclamen and primrose will not do their best. Because they prefer a temperature of 65-75° in the daytime and 55-60° at night, you can make the flowering plants last longer by putting them in a cool location at night. However, they last long enough to give considerable satisfaction in the home; and then can be placed in suitable parts of the yard.

When plants stand near windows, precautions against freezing should be taken on cold nights by pulling down the curtains or placing a layer of paper between the plants and the window. Heat radiates from the leaves to the cold glass, causing a chilling of the leaves. African violets are especially sensitive to this chilling.

Plants do not survive well either when placed near radiators or hot air vents. The heat causes drying of the leaves. Manufactured gas and fumes from coal combustion may injure plants. Under these conditions some ventilation with fresh air is helpful. Natural gas does not harm plants.
