Steps for bringing plants outside for the spring

Plants that have spent some time inside need acclimatization when taken out. Clean pots or buy new ones. Remove dead branches and other plant fertilizer administered in sufficient quantities. Replace the soil from the surface of pots with geraniums, for better water retention.

The first thing you must know is that plants need light and “stretch” toward the light source, therefore it is important to turn the plant occasionally, for it to grow straight, so it doesn’t have a curved strain. You must be careful to the needs of your plant, because if you do not make necessary, it will be very thin and fragile. There are two solutions to this problem: either buy only plants that adapt to luminous environment in your home or make an additional source of artificial light. To no longer have trouble in this regard, buy only plants that need an environment with medium light.

Plants should be watered regularly and cleansed

When you water indoor plants, use if possible room temperature water. Make sure the soil is well moistened, but make sure you do not create a pool, because this could cause root rot. A suitable drainage from the pot will solve this problem. The plants have different needs in terms of watering, but the general rule is that they die if they receive too little water and the same thing happens if the water is excessive.
Just like humans, plants need to be cleansed to remove dust and dirt, only that this should be done occasionally. Put the pot plant in the kitchen sink or in the bathroom and use a spray bottle to wash the leaves. Use lukewarm water and allow the plants to dry before putting them in the place they usually stay.

Fresh air
As you may know, plants significantly improve air quality in your home, but can suffer if kept in an environment where it is always smoke and low humidity. Therefore, be sure to ventilate the room where the plants stay. The ideal temperature for environment where plants are situated should be between 18 and 23 degrees Celsius during the day and ten fewer overnight. If you find that the plants you care for are not doing well in a particular room, the solution it may be the temperature adjustment for it to recover.

Other Tips
Indoor plants need to be fed often, because vital nutrients are removed from the soil each time you water it. You can choose to add a type of slow-acting fertilizer, which is put directly into the ground or opt for a liquid fertilizer, in small amounts to the water you wet the flowers. However, do not put fertilizer on winter, instead feed additional plants during growth and flowering (March-October).

Because plants go well with them inside, do not put in pots in garden soil harvesting, because you will not achieve the expected results. Outdoor soils may contain insects, weeds and various pests that affect plants that live inside. Moreover, soil taken from gardens compacts when it is placed in small containers and because of that it is possible for roots to rot.
Finally, keep in mind that plants need more space as they grow. When you see that roots out the drainage hole in the bottom of the pot or when plants have a matte, it is time to change to a larger pot.
