Generally speaking a creeper is anything that literally “creeps” on to walls and such like. Many houses have creepers on them or on their fences and walls. Creepers are unique in the sense that they make the walls of the house and the house itself looks very nice and in addition to this they also add a certain look to the house. These provide your house with privacy and they tend to help shade your house in the summers as well. These need support since their stems are not strong enough to support them and that is why you will see them on people’s walls and on buildings.
One of the many types of plants creepers is vines which are watermelons. These require a lot of spacing and very strong support to be able to grow out. On top of that these types of creeper plants also need to be grown in places where air circulation is good and enough water is provided so that the water melon can grow healthily and the plant itself can survive too. Do not water these plants too much and also prevent them from getting into contact with the soil.
Like most types of plants creepers it is important to keep these off of the soil because, though the soil is rich in nutrients, it wouldn’t allow the plant to grow. These plants are sensitive and can break easily and so, use some form of support to keep them off of the ground too. Choose a site and once you do plant the seeds. It is important to remember not to let the seeds get watered all the time and to prevent them from getting scorched by the summer heat and too much sunlight is never good either. Water these plants but do not overdo it.
The bougainvillea is another of the many types of plants creepers and they make your garden look ‘pretty’ and lively in the spring time but if you are someone with sensitive skin or who tends to get rashes easily, these types of plants creepers are amongst the types of plants creepers that you should stay away from. You would get a lot of rashes and many people experience a lot of itchiness and rashes because of these types of plants creeper as well. There are various species where these types of plants creepers are concerned though.
These are some of the many types of plants creepers. The common feature in all of them is that they require support and you need to be able to take good care of them because they are very sensitive where water and heat is concerned. Since they do not have a stem you need to ensure that they are supported well and prevent them from getting into the soil because that way they would just die. While some of these types of plants creepers are good because they tend to add to your house in some ways, they can also cause rashes and such like.
