During the growth season, which runs from early spring to late summer, we advise fertilising indoor plants sparingly. Plants will gain the most from new nutrients at this period, while they are actively growing. Depending on the fertiliser you're using, you can typically fertilise your plants monthly or every other week. Read the label carefully because each brand may have a different suggestion for dilution and timing. Liquid and slow-release fertilisers are the two that are most appropriate to use for indoor houseplants.
Cacti and succulents require constant, everyday sunlight. About 8 hours of light each day are required for plants with foliage. We advise conducting research on the particular plants you are cultivating because the quantity of light required for each type of plant varies.
Finding the ideal quantity of sunshine for each of your houseplants might occasionally need a little bit of trial and error. As a result, if you're unclear of how much sun your houseplant requires, start by putting it in a spot that receives the perfect amount of indirect light.
Groom, prune and repot when needed
It's a good practise to trim your indoor plants frequently to maintain them looking their best. It will not only keep them looking neat, but it may also foster new, fresh growth.
At any moment, you can cut away any dead or decaying leaves until you reach the earth. Trim any essential tips and edges from brown leaves as well.
A houseplant that has been growing in the same container for a long period may develop pot-bound roots and require repotting. Some like to be pot-bound, but most will start to show signs of distress if they stay that way for too long.
Only repot when absolutely required. Additionally, you should never repot a sick or weak indoor plant since the shock of the change might kill it.
Here are some indicators that a houseplant need repotting:
· Roots that are protruding from the soil or the pot's base
· The pot appears to be poised to break open.
· The indoor plant is top-heavy and frequently topples over.
· Without soaking in, water drips out of the bottom of the saucepan.
