Ornamental plants are various types of plants, both shrubs and gardens, flowering plants and others, that are deliberately planted by humans as decoration. Ornamental plants are not only outdoors, but also indoors. Currently, there is an increase in public interest in ornamental plants because the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still not over, has caused many people to stay at home, so they fill their busy lives by planting ornamental plants. One style of growing ornamental plants for the outdoors is the tropical garden style. The tropical garden style is very suitable for the climate of our country, which has a hot climate. Tropical gardens are usually lush gardens with many plants, both tall and low-growing, and a diverse collection of plants. Here are some tips for having a tropical garden:

Before determining the types of plants that will be used in our tropical gardens, we should prepare the background for ornamental plants, namely the garden wall. We can choose the type of wall made of stone, wood, or concrete. After determining the garden wall, we can start planting plants that have tall stems first.

Taller Plants

The stems are very tall, reaching 16 meters with fiery red stems, leaves, and stems. The many stems form a very beautiful clump when used as a background for plants in a tropical garden. In addition, there is also the Yellow Palm, aka Dypsis lutescens, which is an ornamental plant that is quite popular. The appearance is beautiful because the pinnate leaves are yellowish green with a bright yellow midrib.

From tall plants, we can combine them with medium-sized plants, such as various types of taro plants, namely skull taro, black taro, swiss cheese plant, and phillodendrum. We built some kind of layer with the plants. Start with the tall ones, then the medium-sized plants and finally the small plants. The other medium-sized plants such as skeleton and black caladium plants, taro plants, and Swis Cheese plant.
