Plant Tips and Tricks

Thirsty Plants

Similar to us humans, plants require more water when they are in a higher temperature, or when the light is stronger where the plant is placed. It’s always important to remember that the same two plants might require different watering schedules, even if they’re only on opposites sides of the room.

Improve your Wintertime air quality.

Indoor air quality in the Winter can be more toxic because the windows and doors are kept closed during the day. Adding plants to your workspace is an effective and relatively cheap way to improve the air quality and bring more energy to the office.

Less is sometimes more

It is easy to assume that the more fertilizer a plant has the better it will grow; this however, could not be further from the truth. Over fertilization of your plant’s soil can damage your plant to the point of no return. If this were to occur, by accident, you can attempt to dissolve the fertilizer with clear water. Flush your plant out completely three or four times in half hour increments, and hopefully the plant won’t be lost.

Removing spent blossoms

Removing spent blossoms, is the easiest way to keep plants blooming. Annuals especially will benefit from a periodic dead blossom removal.
