How To Successfully Maintain An Indoor Garden

Indoor plants are good for your health. They clean the air circulating in your home and they provide a warm and invigorating energy in your space.

Making them happy is not a difficult task. But you need to pay attention to everything that your green babies need for them to grow healthy in your home. Here are easy ways on how you can give your plants some TLC:

1. Enough is enough… with water.

A major cause of dying plants is improper watering. Too much water drowns your plant, while underwatering causes it to wither. When taking care of your indoor garden, you must be careful when giving it water. After watering thoroughly, let it drain into a sink or bucket. Do not let it sit on its saucer with too much water as it will result to fungal disease in the roots and cause an untimely death due to rotting roots. Plant roots need air as much as they need water and nutrients. Give them a little breather. Know when to stop watering.

2. Dust it off.

Do note that even though these are indoor plants, they still need light. If your home has a low light level, keep your plants clean by not letting dust to build up on its leaves. Dusts cut down on the light needed for photosynthesis. Remember to move your plant around your house to find the perfect spot where there is an ample amount of light passing through.

3. Feed it with healthy food.

Indoor plants still need fertiliser. You'll see how healthy it'll grow if you put high-quality fertiliser onto the soil. It will sustain the plant with all the nutrients it needs, which it cannot get from being inside. Be sure to fertilise your plants when first creating your indoor garden.

4. A little chop-chop would do no harm.

Plants are like humans and animals, too. They needed to be groomed and pruned to keep them tidy and clean. Prevent pests from hiding in your plants by removing dying foliage regularly. Wipe the leaves with wet cloth to remove dust.

5. Switch it up.

Once in a while, remove your plant from its pot, trim the roots, and put it in a different pit with new potting soil. Refreshing the soil where it was planted will give your plant a renewed feeling. Also, the old pot might already have salt buildup, which is very harmful to the plant so it is necessary to change pots every now and then.
