Congratulations on your brand new tropical plant or cutting. Now the time has come to take care of this precious creature. Tropical plants can be hard to care for in a cold climate. A tropical plant loves a warm, humid environment with good airflow. The risk in a colder climate is the overwatering of a plant, since there is not enough heat to evaporate the excess water.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_message message_box_color=”vista_blue” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-pagelines”]
Ten Basic Plant Care Tips
- Do not overwater your plant, less is more. Only water the plant when the soil is dry to the touch
- The best lighting situation: a bright place, with no direct sunlight
- Use tropical plant soil, a mix of coco coir, peat moss, perlite or vermiculite will do best
- Control the air flow. Do not put your plant in walkways, close to a window or door that opens frequently
- Once you found the perfect spot, place the plant and leave it there. Don’t change spots.
- Gently dust of the leaves from time to time
- Spray water on the leaves with a vaporizer two times a week
- Keep the temperature right. The ideal temperature will be around 20°C (68°F)
- Fertilize during spring and summer, maximum two times a month.
- If replanting, choose a pot that is 2″ (5cm) larger in circumference than the pot it is in currently
