How to Take Care of Plants?

Plants both Indoor and outdoor will thrive only when given proper care and treatment. Plants require water, light, and warmth to survive.


The primary concern for plants is that making sure that they get enough and more sunlight. For those plants that need full sunlight, they should be exposed to 4-6 hours of direct sunlight every day. For those plants that require partial sunlight, it should be exposed to 2-3 hours of direct sunlight. For those plants that require shade, it should be exposed to direct sunlight for an hour.


Watering plants is quite a tricky task because too much water could rot the roots and too little of water could dry it off. Water needs of plants vary from plant to plant. Always one has to use a spray bottle and add just enough water to make the soil moist rather than making it muddy.

The tip to check if the plant has enough water is to stick your finger into the soil up to one’s second knuckle. If your finger could come out dry then you need to water the plant. If it is wet, hold watering for 2-3 days more.

The requirements of different plants will be different, so choose the fertilizer accordingly.On a medium ground .6-12-6,10-10-10, the mix is good enough for most plants.One can spray or sprinkle the fertilizer directly on the top of the soil.
