What indoor plants like to live in the garden in the summer?

With the arrival of warmth, gardens begin to bloom with colors of bright heat-loving plants and seasonal accents. And the beloved annuals are not moving to the garden alone. Many indoor cultures will happily replace the usual stability of living rooms with open spaces. For some plants, the garden and terraces are the perfect place to prepare for a thriving bloom, for others the best chance to recover and regain their familiar lush greenery. And there are some cultures that love fresh air so much that only in the garden they feel comfortable in hot summer.

Garden Holidays and the Health Benefits of Indoor Plants

The annual “vacation” in the garden is a welcome chance for indoor plants to enjoy bright lighting and plenty of fresh air. As soon as the air temperature rises enough for the plants to stay outside comfortably, most indoor plants would gladly change their usual “closed” environment for open spaces of a balcony or garden.

And the point is not only that in the fresh air it is much easier for plants to endure the drying summer heat. Access to fresh air, as a prerequisite for the health and normal development of indoor plants, is often underestimated or ignored. Meanwhile, it plays no less role than air humidity, watering or lighting.

Airing in one form or another is a mandatory measure for any plant at any stage of development. Without air baths, leaves turn pale, colors disappear, crown splendor and growth rates suffer, but most importantly, resistance to pests decreases at times. Moving to open balconies and out into the garden during the warmer months is the best way to satisfy the “airy” needs of plants.

Indoor air humidity drops in summer, and if many plants require increased care, taking them to the garden allows you to get rid of daily additional procedures. Plus, outdoor temperatures in summer are ideal for plants that love the contrast between daytime and nighttime. And light-loving plants can enjoy the long-awaited long bright day and not suffer from a lack of space on the windowsills.

Where to place indoor plants in the garden in summer?

Indoor plants in the garden can be placed anywhere within an area that is sufficiently sheltered from wind, cold drafts, the risk of tipping over and heavy rainfall. Moisture-loving and tubular indoor garden plants that love spraying and showering can also cope with rains, which will reduce watering to a minimum, the rest will prefer protected areas.

Indoor plants exhibit:

  • on terraces and in recreation areas;
  • at the entrance to the house, on the porch and veranda;
  • near buildings, walls;
  • in large potted gardens;
  • near gazebos, pavilions and other objects of small architecture, etc.

Garden and indoor species and plants that are not capricious or afraid of precipitation can not be displayed, but buried or planted in the soil.

Planting or taking out into the garden is not the only option for placing indoor plants in the fresh air. Indoor cultures can be displayed on a balcony or loggia, in extreme cases – at a constantly ajar window or door (if the use of the room and the comfort of household members allow you to make ventilation not regular, but constant).

What kind of indoor plants should not move to fresh air in summer?

To start preparing for the transportation of indoor plants to the garden is not with finding placements and strategies for transporting them, but with the selection of plants. First, you need to “reject” all plants that will not benefit from moving to fresh air. It:

  • requiring a stable temperature, without surges of more than 3-5 degrees;
  • accustomed to the strict stability of lighting, afraid of movement;
  • intolerant of lowering even the night temperature to 16-18 degrees;
  • afraid of drafts;
  • grown in florariums, flower showcases or at consistently high air humidity.

Information that it is impossible to take plants out into the air is usually indicated in the recommendations for the conditions of keeping and temperature regime for a particular plant species.

There are not so many cultures that absolutely cannot be taken out into the open air. Saintpaulias, anthuriums, arrowroots, monstera, alocasia, philodendrons, nephrolepis, gloxinia, achimenes, coleria, escinanthus, phalaenopsis and other orchids (with the exception of cymbidium) are not the best candidates for taking them out to the garden.

In addition to them, you should never expose additional stress:

  • plants affected by pests or diseases;
  • freshly transplanted plants (especially after an emergency transplant);
  • weakened cultures;
  • very young shoots and cuttings immediately after rooting.

If possible (and desired), you can move species that love the difference between day and night temperatures, crops that do not tolerate heat, plants that bloom in autumn and winter, for which it is difficult to provide a suitable dormant period in the rooms.

Simple rules for moving indoor plants to the garden for the summer

When choosing a place, they are guided by two factors – lighting and security. Lighting is selected individually, reducing the “category”: sun-loving plants are placed in diffused lighting, light-loving plants in partial shade, accustomed to secluded lighting in the shade.

Even sedum, fatweed, milkweed, oranges with lemons and hibiscus will not be able to cope with the south side of the house and the hot sizzling sun. For indoor plants, it is better to choose places in which they will enjoy the morning and evening, rather than the midday sun, the northern or eastern sides of buildings or diffused shade under deciduous trees.

All indoor plants in the garden are protected from the wind. Only plants with fragile shoots or leaves with a fringe need mandatory complete protection from precipitation (they are easy to recognize by their dislike for spraying).

Taking out to the garden is always for the best, but there should not be sudden changes in conditions. All indoor plants, without exception, need a “buffer” or quarantine period. They are usually placed in a shaded, sheltered location for several days (3 to 7) before moving to their primary location.

You can approach the issue in a different way, taking out the plants for several hours and gradually increasing the time spent outdoors, slowly adapting indoor pets to new conditions.

It is possible to start taking indoor plants into the garden only when the night temperatures consistently exceed the permissible minimum for a particular species. It is not enough to wait for the threat of recurrent frosts to disappear: cold-resistant indoor plants can be taken out only when the indicators are above 12 degrees, and for most plants it is better to wait for warming up to 15 degrees.

Usually, in the middle lane, the callout begins at the end of June. An additional reference point is the difference between night and day temperatures. It should not exceed 10 degrees. Of course, if there is an opportunity to bring the plants back in unfavorable weather, there are much more options for placement in the garden. Cloudy, cool and calm days are chosen for carrying out to the garden.

Care must maintain a familiar environment. Watering is adjusted according to precipitation and the rate of soil drying, top dressing is left unchanged. But you need to inspect the plants more often in order to identify problems and signs of pests in time.
