6 best tiered plants
The assortment of indoor plants today allows you to make a choice not only by their color scheme, size, type of leaves, but also by various optical effects. Among indoor plants, there are several amazing cultures in which leaves and flowers seem to be located at different levels, and the crown is divided into several horizontal stripes.
Watch how under a compact bush, thanks to the hanging shoots, a cloud of greenery forms, and inflorescences above the rosettes of leaves create whole hats, or you can admire the branches that are outstretched, like conifers, endlessly. And although there are not many such longline plants, they all have a unique talent to visually expand the space.
Talents of Layered Plants
Unusual, but not unusual plants, visually divided into several tiers, are always perceived as an exotic decoration of the interior. It is as if they are cut horizontally into several strips, which creates a feeling of greater severity, solemnity and structure. And it causes much more interest: the plant seems many-sided and mysterious, unpredictable and surprising.
Longline plants are stronger than classical ones affect the perception of space. They have unique abilities to visually expand the room and create the feeling of walls expanding. Such cultures seem to erase the boundaries and borders, create a feeling of greater freedom and increased distance.
Such an effect is explained quite simply. It can be compared with horizontal stripes on the walls and the effect of bookshelves and open cabinets on space. Negatively affecting the height of the ceiling, but at the same time significantly increasing the width of the room, they seem to repel opposite walls from each other.
But the expansion of space is not all optical illusions subject to tiered indoor plants. Due to the strict bifurcation or section in their crown, they are ideal counterweights for upholstered furniture, including sofas, as well as any large horizontal objects.
The ability of longline plants to harmonize their influence on the room decor is unique. Even the classic arrangement of furniture purely around the perimeter of the room in the presence of such a plant in the interior is compensated and will be perceived as more interesting.
Such crops must be set apart from other plants. Explicit horizontal separation plays the role of a self-sufficient emphasis and “works” only if the plants are provided with sufficient space for growth and development. Longline cultures are soloists who are better placed in the interior, rather than on the windowsill (if only the illumination of the room allows you to move away from the window).
Let's get to know better the brightest representatives of plants, flaunting in tiers and divided into several visual “levels”.
