Plant Care Tips

hydrangea gardenTaking good care of your new plants is a very important step to keeping and maintaining your plants life. These simple steps will assist you in keeping your house and garden lavishly green throughout the year!

  • Keep plants in medium-light locations – out of direct sunlight.
  • Natural light is best, but some plants can also thrive in office fluorescent light. Most flowering potted plants should be placed in areas with the most light in order to maintain good flower color and promote the maximum number of flowers to open. Foliage plants will do well under lower light levels and can be placed in areas providing reduced light.
  • Plant soil should be kept moist at all times, not drenched but damp to touch.
  • Plants should not be allowed to dry out or wilt. Be careful to avoid overwatering – do not allow plants to stand in water.
  • Avoid wetting plant leaves, this can cause a bacteria and spread to other leaves.
  • Avoid excessive heat or cold.
  • Plants should be kept in a cool spot (between 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) for best performance. They should be kept away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or next to televisions or radiators. (Appliances like televisions give off heat, which causes plants to dehydrate.)

Try these tips out, your plants will appreciate them
