Caring For Your Houseplants In May
The temperatures are rising and we spend more time outside. Therefore it's extra important not to forget the 'forget-me-nots': Your indoor plants. In these months your indoor plants are in need of some extra care and water!
Taking care of indoor plants: What can you do?
- Water your plants on a weekly basis, preferably with some plant food. We have plant food for flowering plants, leafy plants and universal food.
- Is it getting really hot? Make sure you check the soil more often and if needed, give them some extra water.
- Do you have an Amaryllis? Give it some water on a regular basis, even after it has flowered.
- Take into account that when certain plants enter a dormant period (just after flowering) they don't need water that often.
- Some plants, like the indoor arum lily, prefer a cooler spot during their dormant period. Therefore always check the needs of your indoor plants.
- Succulents also have a dormant period in spring. They should be watered so sparingly that the soil stays dry and loose.
- Some indoor plants do not like direct sunlight. Therefore it's wise to change the steady spot of your green house friend now and then. Tip: Cacti and Succulents like sunny spots.
- Do you have an indoor azalea? Prune it back to half its size after flowering and plant it in a sunny spot in the garden.
- Did you forgot your green friends and now they are hanging sadly? No worries, give them a proper bath so they can soak in all the water they need. Add some plant food and within no time your indoor plants are shining again.
