The Basics of House Plant Care

Hi, friends. In this post, I am talking about the basics of house plant care. Because housing plants can be a pleasure rather than a mystery to some tender love, Do you think you have a brown thumb?

6 Basics House Plant Care

1- The process of watering

Most indoor plants have to be about once a week. Depending on the plant’s root system’s maturity, the type of pot that the plant contains, how it concerning the solar/heat / circulating air, and the exact type of plant it has, each plant will differ.

  • Windows are drying faster than plants exposed to direct sunlight.
  • Check if the ground looks dry, then put your finger in the ground about one inch (at the first joint) to find out if it’s wet.
  • Between waterings, plants must be very dusty but do not cause them to wilt.
  • Add enough water to the pot to water correctly, so some get out of the drainage hole. Remove the extra water.
  • Water it in about 15 minutes if the plant is dried. Allow no plant to be always wet in a standing water saucer.
  • And remember that there is too much watering to kill more plants indoors than too much watering.
  • Whether to arrange for a neighbour to water your plants, try a pot that’s watering itself, or to put plastic bags in a ‘tent’ to trap your plant’s moisture.

2- Repository

  • You might have to report whether your flower tends to dry out a few days or keeps developing. Verify the roots by cautiously extracting the jar
  • Roots crowded or circled the pot need to be repotted. Select a pool 2-4 inches larger than the original diameter.
  • Relieve the origins of the plant thoroughly but carefully. Put the plant in a new collection so that it is at least 1 inch below the plant (where the plant meets the soil) and add the earth to it.
  • Make sure the ground line is not above the base of the plant. Ample water (See the Repotting House Plant Information Sheet).

3- Cleaning up

  • Taking the dead and dying leaves off and cutting off the brown leaf tips will help you keep looking nice (yes, the plants lose the plate from time to time).
  • To be clear, a wine-growing facility like ivy needs to. Be aggressive. Be bold, man. The farther you cut your plant, the fuller it is.
  • Indeed, we have seen great results with overgrown, scratchy, hideous plants that have been cut almost to the soil line: new growth is luxurious.
  • Plants breathe our leaves to release themselves from debris. It means that the plates off with a moist rag, or the whole plant in a shower.
  • Take care not to remove the spray from the rain and wash the potting soil.

4- Humidity

Plants such as ferns require it, most of which thrive in high humidity. Unfortunately, compared to outside air, our houses are usually very dry.

  • Place your house plants with a tablet or saucer to fight this problem and fill it with a cake.
  • Add the water to the top of the cave until it is underneath (please remember that your legs are dry).
  • When the water evaporates, the humidity around the plant increases.
  • Dust is also a perfect way to get your plants daily (although water droplets can act like louvres and “burn” the leaves on the plant leaves exposed to direct sunlight).

5- Fertilization

  • Household members need to be fertilized only about once a fortnight in spring and fall using all-round fruits and vegetables such as blessing-Gro or Schultz gel human food.
  • Flowering plants need to more often than not, as do African violet and hibiscus plants, with the help of a special fertilizer 12-36-14 to maintain flowers.
  • Some people are also very successful in adding a dilute fertilizer solution to the weekly watering.
  • Your root ball’s size and other factors are what your plant needs for food.
  • Recall that frequent irrigation of house plants (necessary because of pot size) to wash nutrients out of the soil.
  • Since the roots are stuck, unable to find food “down” (as though they were on the ground), they are relying on you to eat him!

6- The Sun’s

Plants, of course, need some light. Check the individual plantation tag (or ask one of our people from New Garden) to learn about the light requirements of the plant, or see our information sheets, “Low Light House Plants” and “What Plants Do”.

  • A plant with inadequate light may not thrive and turn yellowish.
  • New research shows that very large-scale light essential for crop health can have an enormous impact on our sense of well-being, particularly in the less sunny winter months.
  • Plants on the other side of the scale exposed to too much direct sunlight could burn
  • Just remove the plant from the window or add the sheer sides to the sunlight philtre. Well, to remedy this.
  • House plants don’t like the rapid change in their environment!
  • If you want your vegetables to spend a month outdoors with you, transfer them from a very protected, sunny position to a progressively warmer, slightly open region.
  • If the house falls back, take the same step-by-step routine in the background to keep your plants indoors.


If you are a plant lover or have children running around the property, please remember that not all the plants on this page are safe, and individual plants can be poisonous if they or rash. That includes snake, stupid vine, lily, pothos, and the plant of rubber.
