How to Care for Houseplants

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF HOUSEPLANTS?

To take care of and grow indoor plants is not as easy as it sounds. Soil, light, water, and temperature play a vital role in taking care of plants. To learn how to manage all of these elements is the first step in keeping healthy and gorgeous plants in your home. Let us discuss some easy ways you can take care of your houseplants.


LIGHT

Place the plants in the brightest part of your home, for instance, near an east-facing window. However, if the apartment is not exceptionally bright, do not worry; with the artificial LED lamps, your plants get the right amount of light indoors.

WATERING

Water your plants with tepid water and remember to let the tap water rest in the open overnight, allowing the disinfectants in the water to evaporate. For better care, wait until the soil is dry before watering again; this way, you can avoid water build-up at the pots' bottom.

TEMPERATURE

Maintain a temperature environment, which means the house should have a temperature of around 20 to 22 degrees. Studies show that plants grow quicker, with 80% to 90% humidity. To get this effect, put balls of wet clay at the very end of the plant's pot. Water evaporates and creates just the amount of humidity for the plant.

SOIL

Most common indoor plants come from tropical areas, requiring soil with specific organic and inorganic qualities. Herbs require draining soils and the vegetables require soil with specific organic attributes. Choose what is best for the meeting your plants need! 


At this point, you have to decide which plant is the best for you. Caring seems a daunting task, but you can achieve healthy and gorgeous looking indoor plants with consistency!
