How to keep your house plants happy as the weather changes

The weather is changing and so should your plant care.
As we move into the winter months, everything starts to change. From the cold, rainy weather to shorter days and less light. Switch up your plant care routine to keep your plant babies look happy and healthy!  

 

#1

Reduce the watering

Plants don't require as much water in the colder months, so skip a watering or two to cut the frequency back by about 50%. Follow the standard watering advice and only water if the soil is dry an inch or two below the surface.

Use a damp cloth to give your leaves a good clean. Not only will this help to get rid of the dust and dirt but It will make the leaves absorb light more efficiently too. Plants need all the light they can get in darker months!

Fluctuations in temperature can harm a house plant as much as exposure to excessive heat or cold. Make sure to stabilise the temperature by keeping your plants away from drafts, open windows, heating vents and radiators.

4) Enforce a strict meal plan

Most plants do not need to be fed in the winter so place your plants on a diet and cut out the fertiliser from their diet. Plants grow at a slower pace during the colder months and will not benefit from the additional nutrients.

As the days get shorter and the sun is lower, it’s important to give your plants as much light as possible.  This can be done by moving them closer to its natural light source or supplementing some of the natural light with artificial full spectrum light bulbs.
