How to maintain your plants, tips and tricks!

Hello!

Many of you tell me “how can I avoid killing my plants”?

To answer you, I'll give you some simple tips to follow!

First, what would be very useful is when you buy your plants, ask for the name and maintenance in terms of brightness, watering, etc ...

Then, buy only plants that suit your environment.

I made a video that explains everything that will follow, but for the readers, here is the text.

Repotting

Do it at the right time

-It must be done when the roots are stuck. It is a misconception that giving her a large pot will make her grow faster.

-Potting should always take place in the spring when the plants are awakening from their hibernation.

-Choose the right pot: The general rule is to repot in a container two inches larger than its previous one every two years.

- Prefer a pot pierced at the bottom to prevent water accumulation. Overwatering is the number one killer of your precious plants.

Earth

Do not use black soil, even if it is really inexpensive, it will kill your plants. It is a soil very poor in minerals, which is essential for your plants. Don't be fooled by the marketing, no need to take the more expensive one, just mineral rich soil that will keep your plants alive.

spray

· Compost for cacti, enriched with sand, garden soil is not enough. Water your cacti only if the soil is dry.

Use rain water

Touch the earth before watering

Spray rainwater to fill the lack of humidity (be careful with succulents)
