How To Take Care of Houseplants?

Having trouble keeping a plant alive? Improve your green thumb with these pro indoor plant care tips.

Watering Your Houseplants.

Touch the soil to determine when your houseplants need to be watered. The plant needs water if it is dry. Delay watering if the surface is wet. Verify each specimen individually; just because one needs watering, doesn't mean they all do.

Fertilize Houseplants Periodically

Fertilizing most houseplants every three to four weeks is effective. Adding earthworm castings to the topsoil of indoor plants.

Propagate Houseplants When Needed

The spring season is the ideal time to divide indoor plants since they have emerged from dormancy and are prepared to begin growing once more.

Repot Overgrown Houseplants

Repotting should be done on average every 12 to 18 months, depending on how quickly the plant is developing.

Remove Dust From Plants.

Dust the plant's leaves using a dry microfiber cloth or a duster. It's easy to do.

Prune and Pinch Back Houseplants.

When pruning an overgrown stem, cut above a leaf node, where new growth will appear.

Deadhead Flowers and Remove Dying Leaves.

Simply tug lightly on the fading leaf for the greatest results; it should come free without any resistance.

Control Insect Pests.

We recommend washing the leaves with organic insecticidal soap or a gentle liquid soap. Then, for long-term organic pest control, spray the plant with neem oil.

Watch for Houseplant Diseases

Disease is plainly obvious when it attacks a plant. Growth slows, stunts, or becomes spindly; leaves may yellow, develop spots, or display white powdery blotches.
