Which variety in my atrium?

The atrium and the living room are rooms where plants feel good! Indeed, this space is often bright and spacious, which makes it the ideal place to install hanging plants or large plants. Combine species to play on different heights.


In the atrium, you’ll fall for a Ficus Robusta or a Senecio Rowleyanus, plants that are very popular in this room and that sublimate it easily! If you have a television or an internet box in your atrium, you can place a depolluting plant next to it, it will absorb the waves.


A few tips

  • Open wide your atrium windows and patio doors as soon as the outside temperature exceeds 68°F ;
  • Renew the ambient air by opening the windows for 10 minutes. Since the purifying effect of depolluting plants has not been scientifically proven in real-life situations, they have only shown their depolluting capacity in a laboratory and under controlled environment*.
  • Cultivate the very large plants in plastic pots, which are easier to move than clay pots. Avoid the cachepot.
  • Maintenance is easier when plants are grouped together. However, separate them enough to prevent their leaves from becoming entangled. Let the air circulate between them, otherwise the leaves may become necrotic.



A plant is always a good idea to fine-tune the decoration of an atrium. But don’t forget that it is not a simple antique object. Before choosing the one that will blossom best, ask yourself a few questions. Is your atrium bright enough?. Think of choosing a plant that doesn’t need a lot of humidity, it’s better to reserve these varieties for a kitchen or a bathroom. 


Elegant, design, exuberant, small, discreet …: there is necessarily one (or more) that suits your decor and your state of mind! A tall slender one on the floor next to the sofa? A cute little one on the bookcase? Choose the ones that will be able to fully exist without invading you.
