module of our on-line training looks at the requirements
of plants. In other words, what needs to be provided
to ensure that your plants thrive in an indoor environment?
building interiors are designed first and foremost for
the comfort of, and the efficient use by the people
that use them. That means a fairly constant indoor
environment without too many fluctuations in light,
temperature and humidity. Buildings are also designed
to keep the weather out - wind and rain are not conducive
to good business or comfort.
plants, by their very nature, thrive in the full face
of weather and changing seasons. Indeed, many species
require seasonal change to trigger changes in their
physiology. Rain is their main source of water
and a strong breeze does wonders by removing dead tissue
and old leaves.
it is surprising, therefore, that there are any plants
that can cope with the hostile conditions of modern
buildings. A few hundred species are adaptable
enough to cope. They have their own particular
requirements that will dictate where they can be used.
module will not only help you learn what plants need
from us to survive indoors, but also what plants can
be used in different locations and environments within
module will take approximately 45 minutes to complete.
