Caring Your Interior Plants
Interior plants are a great way to bring the garden inside, adding to interior decor with natural beauty and elegant greenery. There are hundreds of plants that thrive indoors, protected from the harsher conditions of the outside world. It’s actually not that difficult to keep interior plants happy, but you do need to pay attention to their basic needs, and take care of any pest problems right away. Here are some suggestions to care your interior plants. First of all, all plants need food, water and sunlight to survive, but different plants require different amounts of each. This is just as true with interior plants as it is for the plants in your garden. Then, make sure you choose interior plants that will thrive on the amount of light you can provide. Healthy plants will be able to ward off pests and disease much better than weak plants. Interior plants also need regular fertilizing to maintain healthy growth.
Alternating periods of drought and flood can really stress a plant’s root system. Most plants like having their roots consistently moist, but not wet. Some interior plants prefer to dry out a bit between watering. For new plants, check the care label or consult a good indoor plant book. This will help you determine the right watering routine. Self-watering planters make it easier to keep plants watered.
