The kitchen is the heart of the house. That’s where our meals are prepared with love and care. It’s also where people spend most of their time. So, there’s nothing better than we upgrade its appearance with decor plants.
They can be placed on the windowsill, on countertops, or where your imagination prefers. Keep their importance in mind because They can bring life to any part of your house.
The use of plants in home kitchen decor comes in add. In addition to investing in remodeling the shape of the room, changing the coverings and general improvements, this improvement in the design makes the area even more beautiful and harmonious.
Herbs and vegetables are always a good choice when decorating your kitchen.
It’s always a positive thing to have some green in your house. In smaller houses or apartments that don’t allow you to make extensive agriculture, it’s always suggested that you should have a small garden or vegetable garden.
Gardening is a good activity that relieves daily stress and it can positively contribute to anyone's health. Gardening can also be very financially economic because you spend less money on vegetables at the supermarket.
So, are some plants you can grow in your kitchen:
Rosemary: Perfect for those who don't have much time to cultivate, it can be kept perfectly in anyone's daily life! The species easily adapts to different temperatures as long as they are not extreme. The soil in which rosemary is planted should be watered frequently. However, once developed, it can go up to 3 days without water. Harvesting takes place approximately 90 days after planting;
Mint: The cultivation of mint deserves special attention as it has invasive roots that do not like neighbors. So, it is necessary to plant it in separate pots. It should be placed in a sheltered place, where the temperature is pleasant and the soil is moist. It is also a plant that needs a lot of water. When it blooms, the flavor and aroma are more intense. Therefore, it is recommended to harvest at this time;
Basil: It needs to be grown in places where the temperature is above 18°C (64,4 °F) and with plenty of sun exposure. At least 3 hours of direct sunlight per day is necessary for basil to fully grow. Like mint, basil is a plant that needs a lot of water, so it is essential to water it daily, but in a moderate way, so it doesn’t get soaked. The leaves can be harvested between 60 to 90 days after planting;
Parsley: Parsley needs mild temperatures that do not exceed 22°C (71,6 °F) and, therefore, this plant should be kept in places with partial shade so that it absorbs light. The soil should be kept moist, but never soaked. Harvesting is done when the plant reaches 12 to 16 cm (4’’ to 6’’) in height (60 to 90 days after being planted);
Thyme: Finally, thyme is a rustic herb that does not need much care. It doesn't need a lot of water, so to find out if it's time to water, put your finger in the soil. It will only be necessary to water the plant if the substrate is dry. This herb is also not picky about fertilization. When the plant is 15 cm (6’’) tall, which happens about 15 days after planting the seedling, or in 60 days in the case of seed planting, the branches can already be pruned and used in the kitchen.
