An adequate supply of oxygen from fresh air, sufficient amount of light from the sun, plenty of water and nutritional ingredients from fertilizers and composts account for the conditions that are appropriate for the plants to grow indoors.
So, here are some suggestions to raise beautiful and healthy-looking plants from the interior of your house.
All plants require enough sunlight which is their main source of growth. Light from the sun are very essential for a plant to grow well. The leaves of the plants does the process of absorbing in the required amount of nutrition from water and soil and converts them into food for the plant. This process is called ‘photosynthesis’.
And hence a little amount of sunlight is required for the photosynthesis to take place. So while growing plants indoors, you have to make sure that your plants are facing towards the sun, so they can be placed near the windows. But if that’s not possible, then you can consider the option of purchasing a couple of indoor gardening lights.
That is because the ample amount of ultra violet radiations from the interior gardening lights help nurture the plants in the absence of energy from the sunlight. Whereas ordinary lights are not suitable.
Also, like energy from sun, water is also equally essential for your plants to survive and grow well. Water that is in room temperature is required for the indoor plants. But always watering the plants more than what is required for them will also ruin them. Most plants either wither away due to lack of water or over watering them.
So there is a rule that you can stick to most of the time to find out if the water supply is adequate or not. Like in testing a cake, you can pierce a knitting needle into a plant container and if that needle goes in easily, then the soil has enough moisture content. Otherwise you water a bit more to dampen it.
So next to water, the third most important thing for any plant to survive is the fertilizer. So its good to add a scoop of indoor plant fertilizer to your plant pot every fortnight without fail.
Do you know that used tea leaves make up for an excellent supplement of nutrition for your plants?
So just implement these useful and simple tricks to make your art of indoor gardening more beautiful and fruitful.
