What kind of maintenance do interior plants need?

Plants with a thumbs up

Have you ever bought interior plants only to watch them slowly wither and die before your eyes? It can be heartbreaking, especially if you aren’t even sure what went wrong. Did you water too much, or not enough? Did you use the wrong soil, or maybe the wrong size planter? Should you have mixed in peat moss? Did you use the wrong food, fertilizer, or pesticide? Maybe your plant wasn’t trimmed properly, or got too much sun… or not enough sun. There are a plethora of things that can go wrong with an indoor plant. Horticulture is a practiced skill that can take years to get really good at.

Most of us do not have years to devote to the study of interior plants, but would still like to have some in our homes or business. If you do, you’ll need to determine the best place to put your plants so they’re getting just the right amount of light. You’ll also want to purchase appropriate planters and substrate to allow for the perfect balance of moisture and drainage, and to read up on various types of fertilizer, pests (and how to control them), plant foods, and the best ways to help flowering interior plants grow and bloom as they should. If you don’t have a naturally green thumb, this can seem a daunting task. Without the right knowledge and equipment, disaster can loom – turning your carefully chosen greenery into a stringy bunch of nothing.

The best option for interior plants in your home or business may mean hiring professionals. Horticulture specialists can help you select just the right plants for your space, and keep them looking their healthiest. Well-maintained plants in a business give the impression of confidence, competence, and caring. They also clean the air, improve mood, and just plain look nice. Plant care specialists are a great investment in your business, and can be had on nearly any budget. Why stress over plant care when there are experts standing by to help?
