Keeping plants alive can be a daunting task for many people. However, with a little bit of knowledge and effort, you can keep your plants thriving for years to come!
1. RIGHT Sunlight
The first thing to keep in mind when caring for plants is to make sure they are getting the proper amount of sunlight. Different plants have different lighting requirements, so make sure to do your research on what each plant needs. For example, succulents thrive in bright, direct sunlight while ferns prefer indirect light.
2. Water but not too much water
Next, it's important to make sure you are watering your plants correctly. Overwatering or under-watering can be detrimental to your plant's health. Again, different plants have different watering needs, so make sure to do your research before watering. One helpful tip is to stick your finger in the soil - if it feels dry, it's time to water.
One way to ensure your plants are getting the proper amount of water is by using a self-watering system like a Plant Nanny. These devices will slowly release water to your plants over time and take the guesswork out of watering.
3. Friendly fertiliser
Another tip for keeping your plants healthy is to fertilise them regularly. Fertiliser provides essential nutrients that your plants need to grow strong and healthy. Make sure to use a fertiliser that is specific to your plant's needs and follow the instructions carefully.
4. Check, check and check again
Finally, regularly check your plants for pests and disease. Early detection is key to keeping your plants healthy. If you do notice any pests or signs of disease, take action immediately to prevent further damage.
5. Love and attention
In addition to these tips, remember to give your plants some love and attention. Talk to them, dust off their leaves, and give them a good prune when needed. With a little bit of effort and TLC, your plants will thrive and bring beauty and life to your home or office.
