How To Keep Your Indoor Plants Healthy

Taking care of your indoor plants and keeping them healthy can really be a very difficult task.

So while deciding on what plants to grow, you can consider opting for plants that are capable of growing indoors with an atmosphere of minimal light, water and heat.

Usually plants take a lot more time to grow indoors whereas when they are planted outside they grow incredibly well and faster due to the energy from the sun.

A lot of other plants are found to cease their growth or they don’t seem to be showing any growth indications or they simply change from the period of autumn  to winter season.

Also the plants that are grown indoors have varied needs in contrast to those that are grown outsoors. Which however does’nt  mean that they should be “destroyed with mercy”.

It is very crucial to maintain a  temperature that is best suited for the plants that grow indoors to prosper. A  temperature between 60 to 70 degrees F ahrenheit  during the daytime and 55 to 65 degrees during the night is the best optimal temperature for the indoor plants.

Make sure that you don’t place your plants nearby a drafty or a draughty area  as it would result in drying and withering away of the plants.

Also it is a  wise idea to not place the plants such that they get the sun’s rays directly as they get dried out completely due to the scorching heat. So its advisable to keep your plants in a location that receives enough sunlight although not straight to the sun.

The temperature varies continually during the day and night times which is really not good for the plants’ growth as it will affect them greatly. The interiors of the house get drier during the cold months when compared to the summer which will clearly have a negative impact on the plants. Hence it is suggested that the plants be spray bathed twice a week for them to grow steadily.

As a final point about watering the plants,  the tap water that you use at  home is not good for your plants as it contains chlorine in it. . The water should actually be stored in a  container or a bucket for about two days before using it to water the plants. Doing this is to make sure that the chlorine contained in the water  dissolves well and thereby not harming the plants.
