Caring for Your Indoor Plants
KEEPING PLANTS HAPPY
How to Water Indoor Plants
Whether you’re a first-time plant parent or a seasoned gardener, there’s always more to learn about caring for your indoor plants. With a few tips, you can keep them looking and feeling their best.
Watering: Each of your plants will have different watering needs. Generally, you’ll want to water only when the top inch of the soil is completely dry. Some plants like succulents will need much less water, so check the card enclosed with your BloomsyBox plant for details. You can use a watering can with a long, slim spout or try the bottom-watering method. To bottom-water, place your plant and pot in a bucket, bowl, or sink full of water. Your plant will absorb all the water it needs through the roots and soil.
With either method, we recommend that you use room temperature water. Never let your plants sit in excess water as it can lead to root rot and unhappy plants. When in doubt, error on the side of under-watering your plants.
CARE AND KEEPING OF PLANTS
BloomsyBox’s Guide to Indoor Plants
With just a bit of care, your plants will grow and thrive! Light: Every plant likes to find the perfect sunny spot. Too little light, and your plant will be unlikely to grow. Too much light, and your new plant might end up sunburned! Try rotating your plants each week--this will help give them a full, round shape as they tend to grow towards their light source.
Dusting: Like other things in your home, your plants can start to accumulate dust. Keep your plants happy by carefully wiping down each of their leaves. You can also give them a quick shower next time they need water. They’ll better absorb light when their leaves are nice and clean!
If you stay consistent with your plant care routine, your houseplants will reward you with the shiniest leaves and lots of new growth!
