OBOZ.UA found out which indoor flowers look like animals. If you like unusual flowerpots, then choose from the list below, the main thing is to provide the variety with comfortable conditions for growth.
This is an ornamental houseplant with beautiful leaves that resemble butterflies, and small flowers of white, pink or lilac color that look like daisies. Choose a sunny and warm place for oxalis. It can grow in the shade, but the decorative effect of the leaves will deteriorate. The plant grows quickly, so it needs to be transplanted into a larger pot after a year.
This flowerpot is called the "goldfish" because of its bright orange-yellow flowers, which are shaped like small fish. The long stems covered with small shiny leaves look like algae in an aquarium.
Flowers appear only on young shoots, so you need to cut off old branches every year. Choose a bright place for the flowerpot, but avoid direct light. Water or spray the plant regularly and abundantly.
This is a herbaceous perennial whose flowers resemble a large bird feather. The bright bracts of red, orange and yellow color add even more to the unusualness of the flowerpot.
The flowers themselves are very small and fade quickly, but the spike-peduncle adorns the vriesea for several months. The plant loves diffused sunlight and high humidity, so be sure to spray the crop regularly, avoiding bracts.
The flowerpot is called the "bird of paradise" because of the unusual shape of the flowers. The bright petals on the long peduncle resemble the head of an exotic bird with an elongated beak and a colorful crest. The plant begins to bloom only from the fifth year of its life, but the large leaves will also decorate your home.
It is important to choose a sunny place for strelitzia, but avoid direct rays. Spray the flowerpot regularly and wipe the leaves with a damp sponge.
