The Ultimate Plant Care Guide for Beginners

Plant care can seem intimidating, but it's very simple once you get the hang of it. Here are some tips to help you get started:

  1. Choose the right plant for your space: Different plants have different light, watering, and humidity requirements, so it's important to choose a plant that will thrive in your home. Watering and humidity are easier to adjust than natural light, so use that as your main parameter when choosing a plant. 

  2. Water your plants regularly: Plants exact watering schedule will depend on the type of plant you have, the size of the pot, and the humidity and temperature in your home. As a general rule, you should let the soil dry out before watering, and then water until the soil is moist but not soggy. We recommend using planters with drainage holes to prevent overwatering. 

  3. Provide enough light: Most plants need plenty of bright, indirect light to thrive. If you don't have a lot of natural light in your home, you may need to use grow lights to provide your plants with the light they need. There are also a handful of plants that can thrive in low light settings. 

  4. Prune your plants: Pruning helps to remove dead or damaged leaves and stems, and encourages new growth. Cut off damaged sections and remove yellow or brown leaves as they appear. 

  5. Upgrade your planter: As plants grow so does their root system. Plants will show stagnated or no growth if their roots are no longer able to absorb nutrients in soil. Repotting into a larger planter provides more space for roots as well as fresh soil full of nutrients to help your plant thrive. For mess free repotting, try out Potting Mat
