Abstract: The aim of the paper is to emphasize the need for increasing students´ motivation in their study, find ways how to enhance their enthusiasm and provide them with attractive education. We compared success of students in partial exams in a differentiated way of teaching (contact teaching versus e-learning) in the course of Indoor Plants assuming the impact of their own motivation on the test results. The results here from revealed that students are generally not ready for e-learning self-study. A questionnaire survey was conducted on those students having completed the course of Applied Interior Design in order to evaluate the benefits of a practically- orientated project to increase their interest in the subject and the field of study. The aim of the project was to find out about growing demands of the selected range of indoor house plants, thus stimulating students to cultivate plants based on their own real experience. The results of the questionnaire survey point to an increase in students´ interest in the practical form of projects, building of the relationship with the study field (and plants) and willingness of students to invest their own financial and material resources into the project. The project taught students how to think about the practical aspects of plant cultivation and care, provided space for confronting the acquired knowledge and experience of teaching, and helped to create a relationship with plants, which is crucial for application in the field of landscape architecture.
