Indoor Plants Are Precious - Take Good Care Of Them With These Tips

There is an old quote from legendary horticulturalist and botanist Liberty Hyde Bailey  that goes as follows: “A garden requires patience in labor. Plants don’t grow only to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill our good intentions. They thrive because someone somewhere expended effort on them.”

True to Bailey’s words, plants that grow within our homes need to be accorded special attention if they are to mature into beautiful features that add face value to your home. Want to know how to make the plants in your home look full of life? Here are some tips to keep in mind:

Always Keep Your Plants Clean

Stacks of paper, rubbish on the floor and all manner of debris – this is what a typical indoor environment looks like. And for this reason, you need to be on-point when it comes to cleaning your plants. Here are some tips on how to go about doing this:

  • Hire maid services to help keep the house clutter free.
  • Clean your office plants once every two months.
  • Remove obvious dust anytime you spot it.
  • Remove any dead stems, flowers and tissues from the plant and the pot.
  • Be on the look-out for pests and insects that survive around the plants.

Water Them Regularly

One problem with plants is that they don’t talk, so we might tend to forget about them simply because they don’t make some noise when they go thirsty. To avoid keeping them “thirsty” for too long, make sure you adopt a regular watering pattern for them.

Find the Right Location

Keep your plants in a place where they get adequate sunlight. Do not place them in a dark, dingy corner, and avoid keeping them near an air conditioner.

From the tips mentioned above you may want to take the following points into consideration:

  • Put an alarm (or reminder) to remind you when to water the plants.
  • If you have several plants, create a schedule that allows you to accord each category of plants the necessary attention.
  • Request your children to help you with the job of caring for the plants.

Plants can really increase the face-value of your property and make the environment right for your activities. However, you need to be extra keen when taking care of them else they might just die.
