Most plants love the outdoors. They enjoy the rays of the sun just like we humans love a calming spa session. When kept outdoors, most house plants require large amounts of water due to the need of increased natural light. However, as summer slowly fades off and harsh winter starts setting in; then you have to start thinking and take note – because when you bring your outdoor plants inside they not only need more light, but also a lot of care.
Here is what you can do for your beloved plants:
Avoid Overwatering: Most house plants die from over-watering than from any other cause. Once you move them inside, change the way you water the plants. Shorter spells are welcome for the plants longevity.
Water Plants Thoroughly: No matter what breed of plant you have, they needs continous water supply. A thorough watering wets the entire soil in the container and the excess fertilizer is neutralised.
Reduce Watering Frequency: It is always advisable to reduce the frequency of watering your plants. It is the best way to limit the amount of water a plant receives.
Fertilization: Avoid over-fertilization. Plants require less fertiliser under indoor house light conditions For house plants, almost all indoor locations are low lighted when compared to outside constant natural light.
