Ultimate Guide to Indoor Plant Care
LightLighting is one of the most important aspects of indoor plant care. Because each plant has different light requirements, it is critical to select the right plant for your specific light conditions. Low light plants, such as ferns and pothos, can thrive in rooms with little to no natural light, whereas high light plants, such as cacti and succulents, require direct, bright light.
WaterThe most common mistakes in indoor plant care are over-watering and under-watering. It is critical to understand each plant's watering requirements. Most indoor plants prefer to be kept moist but not drenched. Wait until the top inch of soil is dry before watering again as a general rule.
SoilThe soil you use for your indoor plants is critical to their health. Indoor plants require a soil that drains well and allows excess water to escape, preventing root rot. Most indoor plants can benefit from a high-quality all-purpose potting mix.
HumidityMany indoor plants, particularly tropical species, require high humidity levels. Dry indoor air can cause browning of the leaves and stress in the plant. By placing a humidifier near your plants or grouping them together, you can increase the humidity around them.
TemperatureIndoor plants prefer a constant temperature of 60-75°F. Plants should not be placed near sources of heat or cold drafts. If you have a plant that is sensitive to temperature changes, place it in a room that is consistently cool or warm.
Indoor plants benefit from fertilization on a regular basis because it provides them with the nutrients they require to grow. A balanced, water-soluble fertilizer or slow-release granules can be used. It is critical to fertilize your plants during their active growing season and to follow the manufacturer's instructions.
Diseases and pestsIndoor plants can suffer from pests and diseases. Spider mites, mealybugs, and scale insects are common pests. To avoid pest infestations, inspect your plants for signs of damage on a regular basis and keep the leaves and soil clean. If you do have a pest problem, try a natural insecticide like neem oil before resorting to chemical treatments.
