As winter retreats and spring gracefully enters, plant lovers everywhere start to think about bulbs, garden designs, and getting their gardens transitioned from winter to spring. As we begin envisioning bursting blooms and luscious foliage filling our outdoor spaces, it's important to remember our indoor plants as well!
As the days get longer, our interior plants begin to wake from their winter slumber. It's also a great opportunity to offer your indoor plants some preventative care and maintenance to help them along. Transitioning your indoor plants from winter to spring will help keep both you and your plants happier and healthier all year long.
Room to Grow
As your interior plants prepare for spring, they will need to stretch their roots. This is a great time to give them the extra space they'll need as they grow. Carefully inspect each plant and determine if a slightly larger pot is needed for the upcoming season.
Food for Thought
During winter, your plants won't need the extra fertilizing and nutrients. This means when your plants begin to shake off their winter dormancy, they will be hungry. This is the perfect time to give your indoor plants some extra energy for a healthy boost with things like liquid fertilizers and organic compost.
To ensure your indoor plants thrive, it's important to wash the leaves of your as well. Dust can build up on the leaves of your interior plants, making photosynthesis and breathing difficult. Simply use a damp cloth to wipe the surface as you support the leaf with your hand.
It's also time to think about moving your interior plants. Consider the temperature and light-based needs for each plant and where in your office or home it would be happiest. Windows that face south and west will bring the most sunlight to your beloved beauties. These areas in your home or office make a great spot for indoor succulents and cacti. Once outdoor temperatures stay in the 50's or higher at nighttime, interior plants can be placed outdoors in a protected area for a boost in active growth. It's important to transition your interior plants
outdoors slowly. A shock of sudden, overly abundant sunlight can potentially harm your plants.
With these super simple tips, transitioning your indoor plants from winter to spring is a breeze. With a little love and care, your interior plants will stay healthy and happy while growing lush and full. Contact Interior Plants at www.interiorplantsinc.com or call 609-890-9304.
