Caring for your indoor flowers and plants – Some Tips
Take care of your indoor plants as much as you can! They embellish the interior of your home with their colors and designs, they cleanse the atmosphere, enhance your mood and much more.
But they also need care. Here are some tips to keep their beauty and their “health”!
If you want a cheerful and interesting result, combine different kinds of plants in different colors and shapes of pots and flower planters. Because, just like interior design, your indoor plants don’t need to be completely homogeneous.
If you love ferns, place them in a place where there is enough light, but not direct sunlight. Also be careful to always have some moisture. To help them grow, you can throw in their soil some dry banana peels. You can do this once a month.
For those who want to decorate their interior space with plants, but do not stand or do not have time to deal with their grooming, a wise choice is cacti. Indeed, there are some species that need watering 1 to 2 times a semester!!
For most indoor plants it would be best to spray them with distilled water rather than normal water. In addition, you should also prune their yellow leaves or very mature flowers.
Careful attention should be given to the fertilizers you will use. In the flowering period, plant the flowers with a liquid fertilizer containing phosphorus and potassium. Keep in mind that the operating instructions must be followed closely.
If you have a centipede in your home, pay great attention to draining it and its temperature that should not exceed 15 degrees. On the other hand, if you have a dragon flower, know that they need a temperature above 12-15 degrees.
You will understand that your plant receives more water than it needs if you see gray spots on its leaves or the old ones turn yellow and gradually become brown on the edge while the freshest leaves wither immediately.
Having some water running out from the drainage holes is good. Besides, in this way the salts are removed. However, if the soil is flooded with water (as well as the saucer), this is devastating for your plant and should be avoided.
It is advisable not to place indoor plants near space heaters, air conditioners, fireplaces or other heat sources.
To be able to breathe better, it is advisable to frequently clean the leaves of your flowers with a damp cloth.
