the 5 rules of plant care

1.

Feel the Soil to Know How Often to Water Your Plants:

For most plants, the golden rule is to see if the first inch or so of soil is dry. If dry, this is an indication that the plant needs water.  Be mindful if your plant is near a chilly window or hot radiator as seasons change, adjacent temperature will greatly effect hydration.  

2.

Treat Your bbs with the Same Care They'd Find in the Wild:

Desert plant?  Don't overwater her, we know you want to water more but honey NO! Tropical plant? Try taking your love in the shower with you for a luxurious mist.  Plants thrive when you can best recreate the environment they came from.  

3.

Water Deeply, Rather Than Lightly and Frequently:

Watering deeply, which entails watering your plants heavily with water, allows for all the roots to grab a drink. To avoid overwatering, slowly water your plant and watch for when the water is not draining through the soil anymore.

4.

Prune Your Plants:

Getting rid of old-growth on your plants will help your plants grow again. They just don't want to be at the party anymore, kind of like how trimming the dead ends of your hair will help your hair grow again. Chop chop now.

5.

Dust Your Plants!:

Plants that collect too much dust on their leaves can’t get the sunlight they may need to survive, especially green plants and plants with big leaves. Just wet a paper towel and get to werk. (Bonus tip: for extra shiny leaves mix a tiny bit of milk with water and wipe, sounds nuts but it works!) 

ferns 5 tips for flower care

1.

Trim those stems!

It's probably the best method of ensuring your arrangement stays fresh for as long as possible. Trimming the stems every 2-3 days  at an angle will ensure water will absorb into the stem!

2.

Avoid Direct Sunlight, Heat, & Drafts

Cooler temps and fresh water will keep your blooms living longer.  Unless you want them as we like to say "PARTY READY",  warmer or hot conditions will allow your blooms to open faster. Ceiling fans and vents can also cause the flowers to quickly dehydrate. 

3.

Pluck Out Wilting Blooms ASAP:

Say your goodbyes and salvage the rest. Tossing out those browned and wilted blooms is key since they release a gas called ethylene that's harmful to living flowers.  Fruit like bananas, tomatoes, and apples also emit ethylene so keep your pretties away from the snacks. 

4.

Clean Your Stems Like a Pro:

Anything that may hit below the water line on your stems has got to sashay away.  This goes mostly for extra leaves on your stems.  They create bacteria in the water faster and honestly if your vase is clear, it looks messy.  Channel your inner Mary Poppins and snip snip! 

5.

Change out Your Water:

Take your ladies to the powder room and give them a drink of cool water after you give them a fresh cut. (Every 2-3 days). Keeping the bacteria that forms in the water at bay will ensure longer lasting beauties.
