Have you bought a plant recently? If so, that's great! Now comes the fun part.
That's right! Plant care can be a lot more fun than you think. Indoor plants can add a unique feel to your home. And, we're not just talking about beautiful visuals and colors, although those too are important.
What we're talking about is the way that plants can make your indoor home feel like a more relaxed and vibrant environment.
By releasing oxygen, plants can turn an environment that feels tense and unlivable into one that you can't want to go back to.
However, in order for this type of environment to last, you need to also make sure that your plant lasts. That means that you have to take care of it, or it might wither and die.
So, how can you take good care of your plant? Here's how:
Watering your plant is one of the most basic things you can do. Watering your plants allows them not to dry up and eventually die.
However, that does not mean that you have to go overboard. You don't want to risk drowning your plant.
Here's what you can keep in mind in order to avoid that:
- Try to keep the soil moist enough depending on the plant
- Don't ever ignore standing water, as it could harm a plant severely.
- Most plants that have lush, thick leaves need a lot of water.
- Plants with waxy or leathery leaves are, most of the time, entirely different.
- If mold formations are on the surface of the soil, then try to not water your plant as frequently.
- If the soil either turns lighter in color or seems cracked, then try to water your plant more frequently.
Much like water, light is also another incredibly important factor that can affect your plant. Why is light so important for plants? Well, that's because of photosynthesis.
Through photosynthesis, plants can convert water, light, and oxygen into energy. And through this energy, plants can grow bigger, stronger, and eventually produce seeds.
However, that doesn't mean that you should expose your plant to light for a long period of time.
Earlier, we said that you should be careful not to go overboard with how much water you apply to your plant. Well, you should also be careful with how much light you let your plant absorb.
Plants that have been exposed to too much light can have scorched or bleached leaves. And, if your plant doesn't have enough light affecting it, then it might turn pale and look as if it's about to wither.
You have to be precise with how much light your plant needs. And, of course, this also depends on what kind of plant you have in the first place. Some plants need a lot of sunlight, while others need very little.
What you need to do is choose the plant best fit your home, and then have fun taking care of it!
