Exotic plant species | Pavlovolimon
Exotic plants is a large group of plants that are grown in unusual habitats.
These plants do not grow outdoors, they can only be grown in greenhouses and at home.
Today there are many different types of exotic plants, here are the most common ones.
All exotic plants can divide into groups :
Orchids are very popular among flowering exotic plants. Breeders have bred many orchids of various colors. The black orchid, or Tacca, is especially beautiful.
Protea, passionflower, datura, ylang-ylang are also among flowering houseplants.
Of the fruit-bearing exotic plants, citrus fruits should be noted, which are especially popular. Of the representatives of this group, lemons, tangerines, oranges are most often grown in apartments, and bergamot has also recently been in demand. These plants are very decorative, with proper care they will bloom and bear fruit.
Dwarf pomegranates, banana, pineapple, feijoa and olives are also grown.
Another group of indoor plants is valued not for beautiful blooms, but for unusual leaves. Among such plants: caladium brightly veined; bashful mimosa, which folds the leaves when you touch them; oxalis, folding leaves at night; bokarneya with long thin curly leaves; calathea; cyperus.
There are also plants whose leaves have been transformed into special devices for catching small insects. Such plants are called predatory . These include:
- Sundews. On the modified leaves of this plant there are many thin hairs with a drop of sticky sweet liquid at the end. Insects are attracted to this liquid, and when they land on it, the leaf curls up and the plant digests its prey.
- Venus flytrap or dionea. Its leaves are transformed into traps, in a calm state they are open. When an insect, attracted by the bright core of the leaf, flies in, the leaf slams shut and the insect can no longer get out.
- Its leaves are transformed into a kind of jugs, inside of which there is a sweetish liquid. Insects attracted by this liquid fly inside the jug and drown there.
There is a large selection of so-called succulents. These plants grow in an arid climate, so their leaves and trunks are modified. The leaves either turn into spines or become thick and fleshy.
Among these plants, one can distinguish lithops – “living stones”, ariocarpus, cacti.
