How to take care of your Indoor plants
Most of the indoor plants at Jones Garden center don’t need constant attention to stay healthy and beautiful. Other than remembering to water, we have plenty of easy-care houseplants that will only need a little maintenance a few times each year. When you need to step in and do some pruning or snip away a few leaves that are starting to turn yellow, at Jones Garden Center we have everything you need to take care of your indoor plants.
A few tips from our experts to keep your Indoor plants looking lush and healthy:
1. Watering your indoor plants
Overwatering is one of the most common causes of houseplant death. If you're not sure how much to water, it's better to err on the dry side than to give your plants too much moisture. In general, plants grown in well-drained soil in an appropriate-size container should only be watered when the top 0.5 to 1 inch of soil feels dry. Cacti and succulents need less water. Flowering plants usually need slightly more.
2. Fertilizing your plants
During the short days of fall and winter, most houseplants don't need much, if any, fertilizer. Most houseplants put on a growth spurt in spring and summer, so this is the best time to fertilize them. Follow label directions to know how much plant food to use.
3. Remove dust from your plants
It might sound silly but it might do your plants the world of good if you regularly dust them off. For plants with smooth leaves, you can just use a cloth to gently wipe away any dust that collects on leaves. Not only does this improve your plant's appearance, but it'll actually help it to soak up more light.
4. Prune your plants
The main reasons for pruning indoor plants are to make them look better and keep them from getting too large. Cutting overgrown indoor plants back to 4 to 6 inches tall with a pruning scissor helps rejuvenate them.
5. Remove dying leaves from your plants
Trim faded flowers from your plants to encourage more blooms and help prevent disease problems. While you're at it, be sure to remove yellow, brown, or withered leaves. It's a good idea to wipe off the blades of your pruners with rubbing alcohol before moving on to a different plant to avoid spreading any pests and diseases.
