What houseplants can and should be taken to the garden in the summer?
Before moving the plants, you need to decide on their type, and most of them are species - subtropical, tropical, desert and mountain houseplants. Indoor plants can be placed anywhere in the garden, but care must be taken to protect against wind, cold drafts, the risk of tipping over and heavy rainfall. For example, moisture-loving indoor garden plants that love spraying can cope with rain and water can be reduced, while others will prefer protection from the weather.

Garden and indoor plant species do not differ in whims or fear of precipitation, you can not expose, but dig in or plant them in the ground.
What indoor plants should not move to fresh air in summer?
You must first make a selection of plants that will not benefit from moving to fresh air:
-they have a stable temperature, without jumps of more than 3-5 degrees;
-accustomed to the stability of lighting, are afraid of movement;
-do not tolerate a decrease in even the night temperature to 16-18 degrees;
-are afraid of drafts;
-grown in florariums, flower showcases or at consistently high air humidity.
It is worth noting that it is important to check information about the plant, by its privileges, and the like. Such as: saintpaulias, anthuriums, arrowroots, monstera, alocasia, philodendron, nephrolepis, gloxinia, achimenes, coleria, escinanthus, phalaenopsis and other orchids (with the exception of cymbidium) are not the best candidates for taking them out to the garden.
In addition to these, there are other plants that can get stressed in the garden if:
-plants affected by pests or diseases;
-freshly transplanted plants;
-very young shoots and cuttings immediately after rooting.
Simple rules for moving indoor plants to the garden for the summer
When choosing a location, 2 factors are guided - lighting and protection. Lighting is selected individually: sun-loving - in diffused lighting, light-loving - in partial shade. Even sedum, fatweed, milkweed, oranges with lemons and hibiscus cannot cope from the south side of the house when the hot sun hits. For indoor plants, it is better to choose places where they will enjoy the morning and evening sun, on the north and east sides of buildings, or diffused shade under deciduous trees.
Protect all indoor plants in the garden from the wind. Be sure to require complete protection from precipitation only those plants that have fragile shoots or leaves with a fringe (they are easy to recognize by their dislike for spraying).
Taking out to the garden is always for the best, but first you need to let the plant get used to the “quarantine period” first, place it in a shaded and protected place for 3 to 7 days before moving it outside. It is also possible to leave the plant for several hours and gradually increase the time it is exposed to air, thus adapting to new conditions.
You can start taking indoor plants into the garden only when the night temperatures consistently exceed the permissible minimum for a particular species. It is not enough to wait until the threat of recurrent frosts disappears: cold-resistant indoor plants can be taken out only when the indicators are above 12 degrees. Usually, you can start to take out from the end of June.
Of course, if there is an opportunity to take the plants back in unfavorable weather, then there are much more options for placement in the garden. For taking out into the garden, you should choose gloomy, cold and calm days. Care. As always - watering, adjust for precipitation and the rate of drying out of the soil, and top dressing remains unchanged. Plants need to be inspected more often in order to identify problems and signs of pests in time.
