How To Look After Care For Your Plants

Do not be among those few who think that to take care of the house plants is hard! If you want to keep house plants, with the following guidelines you will not have anything to worry about.

Every garden needs watering; the best way to go about this is to use a spout with a narrow inside to make sure that your watering is adequate. If this is not the case, you can use the finger test. The finger test means inserting your finger in the soil and feeling if it is damp or not. If the soil is still damp, do not water the plant, however if the soil is not damp, you should go ahead and water the plants.

The plants, mostly foliage plants, need constant feeding of nitrogen, however, if the plants are flowering, K20 is the best for them. Slow release fertilizers should be put together with compost fertilizers. However, there are special feeds for plants like orchids and cacti. The plants should be fed depending on the rate the plant is growing. You don’t have to use shade for plants like Aspidistra or Sanseveria, you can place them on a window. Plants like the spider grow well in a semi-shade environment; you can put it in the window that gets sunlight and shade during the day. Some plants need to be in the sun continuously, while others do not have to be in the sun at all, the example is cheeseplant.

House plants will survive in temperatures ranging from 15 to 250 degree Celsius. However, the plants may suffer if the temperature fluctuates drastically. Most of the house plants need to be in a humid environment. To maximize humidity, you have to put a small pot in a bigger pot and refill the remaining place with compost or stones to keep the small pot moisturized. However, if you have more than one plant, they can create their own humid environment and keep the soil moisturized if they are put together. However, according to the temperature, you can spray water on the plant once or twice a day.

Some plants are suitable for repotting while others are not suitable for it since their roots are not suitable or are too small to be disturbed. To assess if you have to repot any plants, tap under the pot for releasing the plant; if you see the roots then begin repotting.
