Plant Tips and Tricks

Signs your plant needs more light

Insufficient light can lead to small leaves and spindly growth on your plant. These are both signs that your plant needs more light than you’re giving it in order to flourish.

Handy Dandy pH Tester

Indoor plants have their own preferences for acidity and alkalinity of soil. It is measured as the soil's pH value, and ranges from 0-14. A pH7 value is neutral, a higher number than 7 is alkaline, and a lower number than 7 is acidic. You can find out your soil's pH with a pH Soil Tester; easilly purchased at any plant store.

Good Water Makes for a Healthy Plant

Often times plants are sensitive to the water that we drink because of the chlorine levels. If tap water is your best option, allow a container of water to sit overnight and allow the chlorine gasses to dissipate. Collecting rain water or melted snow is also an effective method of providing your plant with natural water.
