Written by Candee Stark


Continued from page 1

Helpful Hint: Buy yourself a small spiral notebook and tape your care tags inside. Also include: purchase date, fertilizer dates, andrepparttar dates that you have repotted. Your plants will thrive because of it!

8. Your indoor plants need to be "fed" often because vital nutrients are flushed out ofrepparttar 113384 soil each time you water. You can opt to use a slow release fertilizer that is added torepparttar 113385 soil or you can use a liquid fertilizer that is added in small amounts when you water your plant. Don't fertilize in winter, instead, fertilize regularly during growing and flowering stages. (March-October)

Helpful Hint: If you find it hard to remember when you last fertilized, write yourself a quick reminder on your calendar for when to do it next. This isn't an exact science but your plants will tell you if you are fertilizing too much by having burned or dried leaves....fertilize less frequently if you notice this.

9. When growing plants indoors in containers, do not use soil fromrepparttar 113386 garden as it does not yield good results. Outdoor soil can contain insects, weeds, and disease-causing organisms that can actually harm other healthy plants already living indoors. Additionally, outdoor soils become compacted when put into small containers. This will lead to problems withrepparttar 113387 plant's roots and might also impede drainage.

10. We all need room to grow and plants do too! When you notice that roots are coming out ofrepparttar 113388 drainage hole or seem thick and/ or matted, it is time to repot your plant.

Helpful Hint: When picking a container/pot for your house plants, make sure it will drain properly. I know what you are probably thinking...many pots are sold without drainage holes! If you find one that you are absolutely in love with drill a hole inrepparttar 113389 bottom ofrepparttar 113390 container, otherwise your plant will almost certainly die. Without a drainage hole, water collects inrepparttar 113391 pot and causes damage torepparttar 113392 roots. If this isn't an option you can double pot your plant.

Are you feeling a bit more hopeful? I hope you and Jerry run out and buy a new plant for your home. If you still donít getrepparttar 113393 results you were hoping for, maybe a cactus garden isrepparttar 113394 thing for you! Just teasing and happy gardening!
