A healthy and mood-enhancing interior design is just with exotic Leafy plants, succulents and orchids to achieve. How the easy-care plants grown in hydroponics in groups form a great decoration, conveys the impressive 14th Hall Show on the BUGA Erfurt 2021. For example, with the Monstera known as the “window leaf”. Her attractive feathered and slotted leaf now adorns decorative fabrics and wallpaper in the interior and served just in the original on the cover of the magazine “Vanity Fair” as a decorative background for the actress Jennifer Lawrence. In the new home office, in general in living rooms, green leafy ornamental plants are no longer regarded as skewered, but as an expression of a modern attitude to life – the jungle is hip. By the way: A Monstera leaf brings it with good care up to 50 centimeters in diameter and more! At the natural site, the plant even grows up to 20 meters in height!
As a solitaire, the edible variation in the hall also boasts: Monstera deliciosa with a taste of banana and pineapple. You can also discover beauties such as the Philodendron pertusum or particularly large, panashing Schefflera and the Dracaena reflexa “Song of India”, also from Asia. A whole assortment of Sanseverien amazes visitors about their diversity: From the variety “Black Jade” to the “Superba” and the “Moonshine” with elegantly bluish shimmering leaves to the “Green Hahni” and “Mansoniana”.
All of these were supplied and staged by the exhibitor association JAGO Kunststoff GmbH & Co. KG and Hydrokultur vom Niederrhein UG & Co. For this, the AST has been awarded the Great Gold Medal by the Deutsche Bundesgartenschaugesellschaft mbH.
