Tips for keeping indoor plants allowed
Posted on Wednesday, February 10th, 2021
Lighting is the key:
If you don’t have a lot of light in your home or apartment, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still have indoor plants. Focus on sourcing some easy-to-care-for indoor plants that do not require a lot light such as banana plants, or Boston ferns. It may be worthwhile to also invest in a plant light and a timer.
Don’t trim the nodes:
One of the main problems that people encounter when keeping indoor plants is being a bit too vigorous with their pruning by nodes. The raised bumps that look like joints on a stem are a node, and the nodes are a key source for growth. When pruning their dead leaves, many people make the mistake of pruning the nodes with them, in turn hindering growth.
Consistency is key:
The biggest trick to keeping indoor plants alive is consistency. Many think this just means watering and caring for everyday but it is also important to keep consistency everywhere. It is a mistake to constantly move your plants to try and give them more light.
