Aesthetic Care Tips
Before you take the flowers to fresh air, you need to make sure it will benefit them because not all flowers can be taken outdoors. Unfortunately, not all types of indoor plants are tolerated by the temperature difference, but some of them: leafy begonias, orchids, violets, alpines, maranta, croton, selaginella, medinilla, germantus, anthurium and others.
For example, these types of plants will only be used in air: aloe, dracena, lemon, monster, cypress, cactus, fennel, mandarin, pachypodium, sanseuria and many other varieties of domestic plants. It is not difficult to determine a flower with contraindications for outdoor walks, these types of plants have increased demands for temperature and humidity.
Before planting on fresh air, you need to make sure that there is no threat of frost. The time for plant walks depends on the climatic conditions of individual regions, but on average this period begins from the end of May, provided that the temperature difference in the night and day time is not more than 10 degrees.
The sun is a source of life not only for humans, but for any plant, but its excess can adversely affect the foliage of the plant( in simple words, burn them).Therefore, putting flowers on the air, you must choose a shaded place for their stay. It can be somewhere in the area of the wall of the house on the west side or under the trees. But one more condition for their favorable stay on the street is the lack of drafts. Plants with high trunks, it is better to deepen in the ground or establish an additional resistance to them, in order to avoid the fracture or fall of the flower.
The irrigation regime for flowers should remain the same, same as at home: the water should be a little distant, and the temperature should not be too cold. In the drought season, watering should be done more often depending on the drying of the soil, not forgetting to spray the leaves. When rainy, no watering is required. The fertilizer of home colors in the summer plays an important role for growth, as it is during this season that the plants begin to grow vigorously and bloom. Liquid mineral fertilizers for flowering are ideally suited. It is necessary to feed several times during the month.
And the biggest problem that occurs when planting for a stroll is insects that destroy flowers. Although not all pests like domestic plants. However, such a pest like an aphid, uses everything and everywhere, regardless of the type of plant and the conditions of its location. The primary sign of its appearance is the deformation of the leaves with a sticky surface, the drying of the stem and flower apexes. At occurrence of these symptoms immediately it is necessary to sprinkle flowers with a solution of an economic soap, and damaged stomachs to remove.
A widespread pest is also a spider mite. The indicator of its appearance is a thin web. The mite itself is hardly visible due to its small size. Fighting with it is much easier than with aphids: just increasing the moisture of the soil and the plant itself, by irrigation and spraying. There is another pest - a slug or snail. Looking at the plant, they gnaw through the leaves and leave traces of mucus. To combat them it will be enough to create a water obstacle by placing the pot on a stand in a tray of water.
Following these recommendations, indoor plants in the summer will significantly grow and strengthen, gain strength in the winter, giving good results, and taking bad energy in the room.
