Indoor plants can be great decorative elements of your home. But a lot of times it can be difficult to maintain them healthy. Provide your plants with adequate growing conditions to make them thrive!
It is crucial to plant your indoor plants in a good potting mix. A good potting mix should drain properly, permit oxygenation of your plants’ roots, and be treated to reduce biological contaminants.
A good indoor potting mix is usually composed of peat moss, vermiculite and perlite. These soilless mixes absorb moisture very well and resist compaction, but they tend to dry out very quickly.
Like humans, plants require optimum nutrition to develop properly.
You can make a homemade fertilizer for your plants using natural ingredients like banana peel, egg shells, coffee grounds, green tea, etc. Let's not forget to think about the environment too and opt for cleaner choices and become a ZeroHero.
It is important to find out how much water your plants require. For example, some cacti require water once per week. On the other hand, hibiscuses require large amounts of water.
Plants need light to undergo photosynthesis. It is important to maintain your plants in an area where they receive adequate sunlight. Determine if your plants grow better in full sun, partial sun, or shade and place them in an area of your home where these conditions are found.
