humidity loving plants at least few times a week during the warm season.
What fertilizer do you recommend for indoor plants?
Most plants need to be fertilized during Spring time - March, April and
The fertilizer we use is slow release fertilizer which work for a year
so you do not need to add any fertilizer for next one year. After that you can
use generic NPK fertilizer with mix ratio as 10:10:10 or if you don’t want to
add chemical you can use cow dung manure for your plants. Keep adding manure
every 3 month.
How can I tell if a plant is struggling?
- Here are some general signs of a problem:
- yellowing or dropping leaves;
- leaf spots appear brown with a yellow halo;
- brown or yellow spots or brown edges on leaves;
- leaves are curling in;
- droopiness or wilting;
- white spots or web are showing on a plant;
- loss of leaf color;
- weak growth.
Where those bugs come from?
Cut Flowers: Cut flowers, whether from
the store or the garden, are another possible carrier of houseplant bugs like
aphids, spider mites, and mealybugs.
Fruits and Vegetables: Whether from the grocery
store or the backyard garden, fresh produce can carry all types of
Other Bugs: It sounds crazy, but bugs
like ants are known to bring sap-sucking pests like aphids, scale, and
mealybugs to a houseplant.
Other Plants: Mealybugs can come from
any other plants that are nearby or plants that are anywhere in a building as
they are can get around via air vents.
Doors, Air vents, and Windows: Houseplant
insect pests, like soil gnats and spider mites, can easily come even through
the screens of open windows/doors (especially during warm seasons) or from
anywhere in the building through an air vent.
Soil: If a plant had gnat's eggs in the soil (which
are invisible to the human eye) you will notice an issue very early, within
first few days, as these guys spread super fast.
What are the little dark flies swarming over the pots of my plants?
They are probably fungus gnats. They are not very harmful to plants but
very annoying to us:)
These guys can come from anywhere - air vents, drain pipes, etc. They
find nice warm and moist environment to lay their eggs in. Frequent or
excessive watering encourages their development. You can usually get rid of
them by reducing the frequency of watering and allowing the soil to dry more
Why are leaves turning yellow?
This can be happening for a few reasons.
Plant is under stress due to environmental changes or while coping
with an acclimation period to its new home.
Some older leaves might turn yellow and shed. Usually, it happens
to the lower leaves.
Over- watering. It is important to provide enough time for the soil
to dry to some degree, and always test the soil before adding water.
Under-watering. If you have not watered your plant for a while and
soil feels too dry, give your plant a good drink and make sure to test the
soil at least once every 2 weeks.
Why are leaves rotting?
Rotting leaves are a definite sign of over-watering and can also be the
sign of root rot.
Use a pencil or stick to fluff up the soil to allow oxygen get through
and to help soil to dry out faster.
Give your plant a “dessert treatment”, as we call longer than usual
breaks between watering, to allow soil to dry. Lower watering frequency for the
future or/and use less amount of water for each watering. Always check soil
before watering plants.
