Plants, both inside and out, are great additions to any decor. They also provide beauty in our homes, relieve stress especially on those who are boring or homeless, those who think a lot especially those who love to plant plants. Ever since a plant we call "Elephant Ear Plant" trended on various social media, it has become a trend for people to plant that kind of plant that was previously ignored, especially in the provincial areas. It looks so good when you put it in pots. They are usually easy to care for and maintain and will succeed if given proper care and treatment.

Now that we have more time at home due to the pandemic, some of us are also beginning to discover the beauty of gardening. If you are not sure how to take care of your plants indoors. These are the simple tips that I will give to you.

SIMPLE GARDENING TIPS

Give your indoor and outdoor plants enough sunlight - Direct sunlight should be needed. But, too much and too little are both harmful - there is enough sunlight for indoor and outdoor plants. Find out what kind of plant you care for so you can win half the battle to keep your green plant alive. Plants that require ‘full sunlight’ should be placed in a rent that lasts 4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. Plants that require ‘slightly sunlight’ should be placed in a rent that lasts 2 to 3 hours of direct sunlight a day. Plants that need ‘shade’ should be placed in a rent that gets 1 hour of direct sunlight a day.

Do not water the leaves of indoor plants - When it looks photogenic as if the leaves are still too fresh, watering the leaves of your indoor plants can cause fungal growth and other infections. While other types of air plants and ferns live in humid environments and can be watered with spray, most plants are best watered with a watering can with a long spout to properly hydrate the roots.

Water well enough - irrigate your plants regularly. Getting the right amount of water can be tricky: too much water, and the roots will start to rot due to poor flow, too little water and they will dry out. So sometimes you notice that the leaves are brown or yellow, soft, and look weak, that may be a sign of overwatering. In other words, the roots of plants need air to survive, and soaking the soil with water can prevent it. However, most plants will grow when watered 2 to 3 times a week. Use a spray bottle or a small watering can, and add enough water each time so that the soil is moist but not muddy. Stick your finger in the dirt on your second joint to see how wet it is; if your finger comes out dry, you need to water your plant. If it is wet, then do not water for a day or two. Always use lukewarm water for your plants, as cold water can shock the roots and cause damage to the plant.

Trim the plants - trimming the plant looks like the opposite of plant growth. However, removing withered leaves and scattered branches will help the plant save on nutrition, allowing it to focus on growing the most beautiful leaves, fruits, and flowers. To grow lush leaves and healthy fruit, trim the plant at a 45-degree angle with a clean, sharp pair of scissors. This will prevent damage and infection of the plant, and maximize the surface area for the continued growth of the plant where it was a prune.

Clean the plant - Wiping the top and bottom of each leaf with a damp, clean swab will ensure your plant breathes and produces evaporation. Cleaning the plant will also help prevent fungal growth and pests. As an additional guide, wash your swab thoroughly between cleaning plants to prevent the spread of any disease. Depending on the size of your plant, there are two different general cleaning methods: wipe them with a cloth or rinse them with water in the laundry room. If you choose to clean your plants, mix a small amount of warm water with a small amount of soap or vegetable soap, soak the cloth in the solution and then carefully pass it on the leaves. If you put the plant under running water, simply turn off the lukewarm water from your laundry and carefully rinse each plant leaf with your hands or with a clean cloth.

In this time of quarantine, other than bonding with our relatives or family, why don't we try to plant plants, you will enjoy. Back then, I was not fond of planting but my mother loved to plant. I grew up in a province, that's where I was born and then my mother planted in our yard, that's where I learned. She likes plants, My brother is also funny because he looks at all my hobbies. ‘As for gardening, he asks if he can help. Because of course the plants do not water immediately so they may drown. So he needs to be watched when he is watering the plants because he will only play, he is still young.

I still have many plants but these are my favorites because of the size of the leaves.😅😅! I encourage you to try, there is nothing wrong. By the way, I just ask all my plants to the neighbors and then I take care of them until they grow so beautiful.

Oh you have green thumb.. I like a house with many plantsbtoom. They actually filter the carbon monoxide and gives us oxygen... If a house is being surrounded by plants, then for sure the air is being purified too. ..
