Here the essence we are talking about is plants, which is somewhat a companion to the man. But every man is no expert to judge what the conditions are required to grow, maintain and care these plants. Well, we respect your affection towards plants and surely guide you with principles and factors that are essential to grow plants in both indoor and outdoor conditions. Beginning with the selection of indoor plants. There are mainly three factors that must be ensured while planting indoors.
1. Too Much Watering Is Harmful For Your Plants. Sometimes people misinterpret the term watering of plants. Watering of plants doesn’t mean you need to water the plants at every 12 hours, if you are doing that please stop doing that because you are not helping your plant rather you are harming your plant. Every plant has certain requirements of water intake. The best way to check if water is needed is dip your finger deep inside the soil, if you find its moist then no need to water your plant but if dry pour some water, E.g., rex begonia. If you are wondering what possible could over watering could do then you should know that over watering causes the rotting in plants root and bad influence to most indoor plants. So, always drain the excess water from your indoor plants. In addition, always use distilled water to water your plants.
2. Choose the Fertilizers Carefully Normally all the fertilizers available in the market are good for indoor plants but as you know plants are natural and fertilizer can be both chemical and natural plus fertilizers have limited working efficiency as they only work in growing seasons only. So these are the limitations with the fertilizers. Always go for powered or liquid fertilizer as they are considered best for the indoor plants by experts.
3. Never Underestimate the Importance of Humidity for Your Plants Yes my friend you just read the right thing. If you have been thinking that Humidity play no role in planting plants then you are wrong. Humidity is one of the major factors to be considered while planting the plant indoors. Dry air can kill your indoor plants because there is no moisture content in the air inside your room. E.g., African violets, bird of paradise and orchids these plants have a high demand for humidity to grow. There is no denying the fact that most of our houses and workplaces have dry atmosphere which is not fit for planting indoors plants. In such cases you must ensure that you are providing sufficient humidity to your indoor plants. Try to find a room which is sufficiently humid for your plant . Look for a room next to your bathroom as it has greater chances of being humid.
