GENERAL PLANT CARE INSTRUCTIONS

New to plant care?
If you are wondering how to water your newly bought plant, remember that not every plant needs the same amount of water. In order to understand how much water your plant needs, you can perform a soil test by yourself to determine how much water your plant need.
 The general watering schedule for the plants are:
  1. Once in a week for Indoor plants.
  2. Daily for outdoor plants.
INDOOR
  • Use A moisture meter (Optional). or perform a soil test.
  • Avoid exposure to direct sunlight.
  • Indoor Plants can survive without sunlight, but keep the indoor lights ON in the morning time.
  • Provide nutrients, minerals and fertilizers to your plants every month.
  • Use organic pesticides/ fungicides.
  • Learn about your plants on the internet such as its name, characteristics, benefits, care etc.
 
 
OUTDOOR
 
In Summer, water dries too fast so you may have to water twice or thrice a day for outdoor plants.
But in winter, the water dries slowly. You may need to water only once every two days.
 
  • For outdoor plants, if you have a pot with holes, Water the plant till leakage starts at the bottom. For the pots with holes, keep the amount based on the size of the pot.
  • Provide nutrients, minerals and fertilizers to your plants every month.
  • Use organic Pesticides/Fungicides.
  • Learn about your plants on the Internet such as its name, characteristics, benefits, care etc.
How to perform the soil test?
After watering, the soil should be wet but not pulpy.
Make a habit of touching the soil at least every 2 days.
Check for moisture by sticking your finger 2 inches into the soil.
Wait until the soil dries at least 2 inches deep, then water the plant.
 
NOTE: Flowery and Fruity Plants need more water and sunlight than the green ones.
 
 
 
 

Frequently Asked Questions

 
Why is my plant unhealthy?
 
  1. Over or inadequate water.
 Always check the soil before watering. If it's dried an inch to 2 inches down, it means the plant needs water. If it's too moist or wet, then you'll have to avoid watering until the soil turns dry.  
  
  1. Too cold or too hot temperature.
 If the plant is kept in direct sunlight or is getting a lot of Sunlight, please change its place.
Indoor plants don't need sunlight, they can survive on indoor lights but it’s not necessary to keep the lights on at night. The room temperature for indoor plants should stay between 20°C -  25°C
  
  1. Lack of vitamins and minerals.
 Like human beings, even plants need vitamins and minerals. Plants kept in pots should be given vitamins and minerals every month. Use of natural source of vitamins will give slow results, but won't harm the plants.
 
 
Common Reasons Why Your plant leaves turns yellow / brown
  
  1. 1. Not enough light
  It is very important for plants to get enough light to photosynthesize. if your plants aren't getting enough sunlight, leaves will turn dull and quickly turn yellow. But it is important to understand how much light each of your plants need. Some species prefer direct sunlight and others prefer the shade.
 
  1. Water shortage
 Often times, plants tend to be yellow even if they are not completely dry. Some species turn yellow once they are not watered for a few days.  If the lower leaves of the plant often start to turn yellow while the upper leaves are still green, it’s a sign that your plant needs to be watered more often.
 
  1. Excess water
  While too little water causes plants to turn yellow, too much water causes the same problem as well.
 When plants are watered more than they need, the soil turns to clay, which reduces the oxygen in the soil and prevents the roots from breathing, leading to the yellowing of the plant leaves.  When you buy a new plant, inquire about the amount of water it needs. and keep watering it with a certain amount of water, without increasing or decreasing it.
 
  1. Nutrient deficiency
  When plant leaves turn yellow, it may be due to a lack of nitrogen; an important nutrient for plants.  Yellowing can also indicate a deficiency of other important nutrients in the soil such as iron, manganese and zinc. If you have had your plant with you for a long period, it is very important that you change the soil of your plants once in a while to avoid nutrient deficiency.
 
  1. Overuse of fertilizer
  If the leaves of your plants look like they are burnt, this could be a sign that you are overusing fertilizer.  The damage can happen in two ways: when the soluble salts in the fertilizer pull moisture from the roots, or when the fertilizer granules seep into the leaves.  Some plants are sensitive to fertilizers.
If you are using a granular fertilizer, make sure you water the plants right away after fertilizing and that there aren't any granules building up on the foliage. You could also use organic fertilizers instead, which are less concentrated than inorganic fertilizers.
 
  1. Insecticides
 When you spray pesticides or insecticides at high temperatures, high humidity, or on an overcast day, the leaves of your plants can burn.  The same happens when spraying plants that are already suffering from drought, frost, pests or diseases.  Once it is damaged, remove the leaves.  Avoid spraying on humid days.
 
  1. Fungal or bacterial diseases
  There are some fungal or bacterial pests that target plants and cause yellowing of the leaves at first and then end up killing the plant completely.  This type of pest may target certain plants in particular, such as tomatoes. when these pests infect your plant, you can only remove the affected parts of the plant.
 
  1. Insects
 Damage from many insects can cause yellowing of leaves, especially on vegetables, which are targeted by insects such as spider mites and whiteflies.  While these insects do not necessarily kill the plant, it is necessary to monitor the plants. if an insect species is observed, immediately take measures to eliminate it before it spreads and multiplies.
 
  1. Natural aging
 The yellowing of the leaves is a natural part of the plant aging process as it begins with the old leaves in the lower part, which changes color and then it falls off, then the yellowing extends to all parts of the plant.  Natural aging is not a cause for concern, as the plant leaves will grow back in the next season.
