Forget the myth that indoor plants for shady corners are the divas of gardening. On the contrary, they're incredibly resilient and simple to pamper. Here's how:
Watering: keep the balance! Proper, moderate watering is the key to avoiding root rot. Less light usually means less water.
Spraying: A little mist can work wonders. Regularly spraying foliage with distilled or filtered water recreates the humidity these verdant beauties crave. This little wellness gesture also helps keep pests at bay, while providing your plants with top-notch hydration.
Pruning: Give them a little trim from time to time. Remove withered or damaged leaves to encourage vigorous growth and limit the risk of disease. Think of it as a quick makeover.
Leaf cleaning: how about a little home spa? Dusting leaves with a damp cloth not only makes them shine, but also maximizes their ability to absorb light and thus to photosynthesize more effectively.
Fertilization: Feed them, but do it right! An organic nutrient supply during the growing season contributes to their well-being.
Light: The right light makes all the difference. Although plants generally prefer a bright location with no direct sunlight or half-shade, these houseplants can adapt to a darker space with the right care. A small amount of light is still required. Don't forget that these are real plants.
Pest control: Play plant detective. A regular look under the leaves and around the pot can prevent an unwanted invasion. At the slightest sign of trouble, take swift action with ecological maintenance solutions.
