|Indoor Gardening by S C Dey|
The shade-loving plants, which can be grown indoors are called INDOOR PLANTS or HOUSE PLANTS. They are grouped into three heads - those which bear ornamental flowers, those of ornamental leaves and others having both these qualities. It is wrong to have an idea that the flowering indoor plants are few. Because numerous species and cultivars of cactus and orchid bear enchanting flowers in profusion. They are treated as indoor plants. According to the old idea only the plants of ornamental leaves mostly decorative with colours were considered to be indoor plants. Practically the spheres of indoor plants are extensive. But the foreign authors in their works have hardly included other plants such as orchids, succulents which are grown indoors. The Indian authors mostly follow their foreign counterparts. It is very interesting to note that an over enthusiastic author includes the rose and excludes bonsai in his work entitled INDOOR GARDENING.
