Even if you’re afraid to keep plants in your home because they’re dying, these super simple tips and tricks will ensure that there aren’t any plants that can stand up to you.
Choose your indoor plant
There is a plant for every person. For example, if you want to grow plants at home but are not a professional, do not build the house from the roof down. A plant with easy and basic maintenance that does not require extra effort should be chosen.
Find the best place
When decorating your home with plants, you need to consider more than just aesthetic value. Not all indoor plants can be placed in the same place at the same time. Some plants are more resistant to the amount of light than others depending on their species. As a result, not all plants benefit from exposure to direct sunlight.
Another thing to consider is that south-facing windows provide the best light, while north-facing windows provide the best shade.
Indoor plants may not suffer as much from severe weather as outdoor plants, but they still have to contend with unexpected temperature changes or drafts from time to time. Most of the time, radiators or air conditioners are responsible for this “climate change”. Furthermore, although indoor plants are generally comfortable at temperatures ranging from 15o C to 25o C, they are not fond of drastic temperature changes.
Respect your risk
Each plant has its own characteristics and not all require the same level of care. Same goes for danger. Some can function almost independently with only a small amount of water, while others require more regular watering. On the other hand, since they are kept indoors, indoor plants require less regular watering on a normal basis. Remember that the ideal situation is for the soil around the plant to be slightly damp (not wet) at all times. If you live in a dry area, use a humidifier to add more moisture to your plants.
Find the ideal pot for your plant
Because the container will serve as a house for the plant, it should be equipped with everything necessary. For example, when choosing a pot, size should be considered among other considerations. When it comes to growing to their full potential, some plants demand a lot of space, while others need little or no soil.
Feed it well
You must fertilize your plants when substrate nutrients are depleted, which is especially important during the growing and blooming seasons. This is one of the most basic aspects of houseplant care. You can use liquid fertilizers from spring to autumn and mix a small amount with irrigation water to get the best results. Of course, be sure to follow the instructions carefully to avoid overdoing it and burning the roots.
Step 7 – “Clean” your plant
Although indoor plants are not subjected to the same severe weather conditions as outdoor plants, their leaves can become dry and diseased just like outdoor plants. To preserve your plant and keep it growing as healthily as possible, remove dead leaves or any part of the plant that appears to be drying out from time to time.
