Things to Remember in Indoor Gardening
Indoor gardening is the solution if you don’t have enough space or land for your plants. It is the process wherein the plants are nurtured within a residence, building or in a greenhouse. Indoor plants also serve as decoration to your homes. But of course, there are some pointers to consider when you have an indoor garden.
The amount of light in your house will determine what type of plant is suitable in your indoor garden. Plants that require low to medium amount of sunlight is appropriate in your indoor garden. Since the plant will turn to the light, you should rotate the plant to have an upright growth of your plant.
When it comes to watering of your plants, it is better to ask the person who sold you to know how much and how frequently to water the plant. Don’t over water the plants because it might rot its roots. Temperature and humidity also affect the growth of the plant. The temperature range of most indoor plants should fall between 65-75° F, during the day and 10-15° F at night.
For indoor plants that grow very quick, you can fertilize it every 2 to 3 months while dormant plants do not need fertilizers at all. Since they are indoor plants, they received less sun so it does not need to be fertilized often. It is very important to remember that not all plants have the same requirements of light, water, temperature, humidity and fertilizers so proper monitoring of it is a must.
