6 best layered plants

The assortment of indoor plants today allows you to make a choice not only by their color scale, size, type of leaves, but also by various optical effects. Among indoor plants, there are several amazing crops in which the leaves and flowers seem to be located at different levels, and the crown is divided into several horizontal stripes.

Cyclamen persicum

You can endlessly watch how under a compact bush, thanks to hanging shoots, a cloud of greenery forms, and inflorescences above the rosettes of leaves create whole caps, or you can endlessly admire the outstretched, like conifers. And although there are not so many such longline plants, they all have a unique talent for visually expanding the space.

Layered Plant Talents

Unusual, but not unusual plants, visually divided into several tiers, are always perceived as an exotic interior decoration. They seem to be cut horizontally into several stripes, which creates a feeling of greater severity, solemnity and structure. And it causes much more interest: the plant seems many-sided and mysterious, unpredictable and amazing.

Longline plants have a stronger influence on the perception of space than classical ones. They have the unique ability to visually expand a room and create the sensation of expanding walls. Such cultures seem to erase frames and boundaries, create a feeling of greater freedom and greater distances.

This effect can be easily explained. It can be compared to horizontal stripes on the walls and the influence of bookshelves and open cabinets on the space. Negatively affecting the height of the ceiling, but at the same time significantly increasing the width of the room, they seem to repel opposite walls from each other.

But the expansion of space is not all optical illusions subject to longline houseplants. Due to their strict bifurcation or section in their crown, they are ideal counterweights for upholstered furniture, including sofas, as well as any large horizontal items.

The ability of longline plants to harmonize their impact on room furnishings is unique. Even the classic arrangement of furniture around the perimeter of the room in the presence of such a plant in the interior is compensated and will be perceived as more interesting.

Such crops must be displayed separately from other plants. Explicit horizontal separation plays the role of a self-sufficient emphasis and only “works” if you provide the plants with sufficient space to grow and develop. Layered cultures are soloists, which are best placed in the interior, and not on the windowsill (if only the lighting of the room allows you to move away from the window).

Let’s take a closer look at the brightest representatives of plants, flaunting in tiers and divided into several visual “levels”.
