We figured we'd share some accrued wisdom on general plants and gardening, in addition to info on tree care.
When it comes to caring for their plants, many individuals are concerned. There is no need to be concerned when it comes to house plants. There are only a few things to think about.
1. Watering is number one.
Every garden should have a watering can. To ensure appropriate watering, it is recommended that you get the one with a narrow spout. However, this isn't always the case, thus the finger test may be useful. Insert your index finger into the earth up to the first joint. If the soil appears to be damp, do not water it. Otherwise, proceed.
2. Providing Nourishment
Foliage plants must always have a high nitrogen content. K2O, on the other hand, is required for flowering plants. Fertilizers, such as slow-release fertilizers, can be combined with compost. Cacti and orchids, on the other hand, require particular feeding. Plants should be fed while they are at the peak of their active growth.
Sanseveria and Aspidistra, for example, do not require any shade. They can be placed in a location that is not near a window. Semi-shade is required for spider plants. Plants like this can be placed near a window that receives or does not receive sunlight. Cheeseplants, for example, require either direct sunlight or no sunlight at all.
Houseplants can withstand temperatures between 15 and 250 degrees Celsius (55 and 750 degrees Fahrenheit). However, extreme temperature changes may be harmful to them.
5. Relative humidity
Some houseplants need to be kept moist. To increase humidity, place the pot inside a larger pot and fill up the crevices with stones or compost to retain moisture in. It is impossible for the compost to dry out. When plants are clustered together, they can create their own climate. This advice can be utilized to keep the soil moist as well. Depending on the temperature of the day, you can sprinkle them with water once or twice a day.
6. Planting new seeds
Other plants may need to be repotted in order to achieve optimal growth, however certain plants may not be suitable for this method. They don't want their roots to be disturbed, especially if the root system of other plants is small. Turning your plant upside down is one approach to see if it needs repotting. To liberate the plant and inspect its roots, tap the pot. If all you see are roots, it's time to repot.
You only need to give your plants a little attention, and you'll reap the benefits. You can not only have a beautiful garden to complement your home, but you can also learn to respect and nourish life in all of its forms.
