Keeping indoor plants alive and kicking isn’t as difficult a job as it may apparently seem. In fact, with just a few easy measures on indoor plants basics you can keep all your beloved plants super healthy and beautiful. Take a look at the following tips for beautiful and green plants.
Water is essential for not just plants but any live entity. But when it comes to plants, you have to be extra careful when watering them because if you are even the tiniest bit careless, overwatering can damage and hinder further growth of your plants. Yes it is necessary, but watering when plants don’t need it can be hazardous for the plants. To find out when it’s time to water your plant, stick your finger into the plant pot. If it’s comes out dry, it’s time. By doing this repeatedly, you’ll get a hand of the time intervals. If you have a saucer underneath the pot for catching excess water, empty it religiously.
Plant your plants in pots that have drainage holes. Because pots with no holes will not allow excess water to drain and the water will damage the roots of the plant. If you can’t find pots with holes, put some pebbles at the bottom of the pot. This will keep water away from the roots and the soil will remain humid from the moisture for a longer time.
A crucial element for indoor plants growth is light. Some plants need full sun, some partial and some can do relatively well in no sun at all. When you buy a plant, make sure to ask the gardener for special tips for that very plant or do some research yourself.
Fig trees for example need lots of sunlight and also grow towards the light. You may have to change its position every now and then.
If you see your plant lanky or limping, it probably is not in the best places. Even to move it to another spot, do it gradually as a sudden change can get the plant into shock.
Apply these indoor plants basics and you plants will start smiling:)
