Easy Tips for Indoor Gardening Success
Increase your indoor gardening success with these simple tips.
Select indoor plants that match the growing conditions and your schedule. Cacti and succulents are good choices for busy people with lots of light while pothos and snake plant are perfect for low light situations and people who like to provide minimal care
Water thoroughly and as needed for the plants you are growing. Most tropical plants should be watered thoroughly whenever the top few inches of the potting mix is slightly damp.
Set plants on pebbles, elevating them above the excess water that collects in the saucer. This helps avoid root rot, increase humidity, and decrease your workload.
Group plants together for easier maintenance and increased humidity. As one plant transpires (loses moisture from its leaves) its neighbors will benefit from the increase in humidity.
Match the plant with its preferred light conditions. Keep in mind trees, awnings, and sheers decrease the light your plants receive.
A bit more information: Consider moving struggling plants to a sunny southern window during the short gray days of winter. Or give your plants a boost by adding a few artificial lights to your indoor garden.
