Grow Your Plants Like An Expert, No Green Thumb Required – Dowan Blog

There’s nothing better than bringing life into your indoor space, and there’s no easier way to do that than with plants. Plants help make a room feel complete, adding unmatched warmth and color. They’re not only beautiful, but plants are also practical. They help filter your often stagnant indoor air and increase the oxygen level, making your space more pleasant and keeping the air fresh and clean.

There’s no doubt that adding indoor plants to your office, living room, or bedroom is an excellent design choice, but what do you do if you’re better at killing plants than keeping them alive? Many people choose to settle for artificial options, but they’re not the same. Growing plants takes practice, and there are many elements to consider.

Plant Type

There are many different types of plants suitable for beginner to advanced growers. Succulents are an excellent choice for those just starting their plant journey or who struggle with keeping fussier species alive. They thrive on being left alone and generally stay small. Simply set them in the sun and water them every once in a while, and they should grow perfectly.

For more experienced growers, the snake plant, philodendron, and Chinese money plants are beautiful options to consider. Although they need more attention, they’re hearty enough to be forgiving if you forget to water them for a little while.

Plant Care

For proper plant care, you must pay attention to the type of plant you choose and their specific growing requirements. Make sure to consider the following for the particular kind of plant you choose: light and temperature preference, soil conditions, necessary water amount, and appropriate pot size. Each of these conditions varies depending on the type of plant you choose.

Watering

This is the first, most basic and common task for any plant parent when to care the houseplant. No matter what your houseplants’ names are, they shall fall into three main categories: the flowering, the foliage, and the succulent and cacti.  

Flowering – the ones you purchase for enjoying their flower bloom, need the most water and their soil should usually be kept wet;
Foliage – the ones you purchase for their leaves appearance, need less water and they should be watered directly to the soil;
Succulent and cacti – the ones that have adapted to life from dry climate, need the least water but you still need to water them. Ideally keep the soil between moist and dry.

Soil and fertilizer


Soil is another crucial factor that determines your plant growth. The soil comes with its natural nutrients but will be leached out gradually by watering overtimes. Then that time you will need fertilizers. Other than using fertilizers from the market, you also could make your own fertilizers with the kitchen leftovers and other items. Eggshells, used coffee grounds, aquarium water could be used for various fertilizing purposes.

Eggshells – a good calcium boost.
Used coffee grounds – a refreshment for acid-loving plants like ferns.
Aquarium water – fish waste is a good fertilizer for your houseplants.

Placement

Where to place your plants is also worth noting. Most plants that we could easily access from the markets are usually the ones that are suitable for the environment where you live. So here we’re talking about the sunlight. Especially for beginners, you should know that if your green babies thrive in the sun.
The ones like sunlight: succulents, cactus, dwarf citrus, ponytail palm, herbs, snake plant, etc.
The ones like shades: Bromeliad, Chinese Evergreen, Dumb Cane, Parlor Palm, Philodendron, Spider Plant, etc.

The Tools:

You don’t want to get your hands dirty while caring your plant, so definitely need a gardening kit. For beginners, a small gardening kit that includes a shovel, a rake, a spade, and a pair of mittens will be satisfying.

Containers:

This could be constantly missing out point; as critical since they serve as habitats where the plants grow; as significant to the amateurs since they also can be served as parts of the home décor.

There are many types of containers that you may find. In terms of materials, terracotta, ceramic, plastic, and fiberglass are the most commonly seen materials for the containers in the market. You could also find wooden and metal ones. They all have their pros and cons. For beginners who just want to bring their first plant home, we’d suggest the ceramic ones as a go-to since they usually suit most small-size houseplants.

Also, there is more to care about when choosing a pot: the size, the drainage, the style, and if it’s easy to keep clean… and A-Pot’s unique design helps you be a better plant parent, simplifying the process and eliminating the guesswork.
