9 Ways to Maintain Your Houseplant Health in Winter

Although the potted plants are year-round indoor residents or have temporarily sought refuge from frigid temps, they could seem a bit depressed at the moment. Are you performing incorrectly? Or simply did they go dormant? We sought the counsel of horticulturist David Clark, who is caring for his indoor plants through the cold winter. The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens lecturer, Clark, enjoys a challenge. He has amassed more than 300 distinct orchid species and managed to maintain a 4-foot gardenia topiary for four years. Your houseplants will struggle more in the winter, whether you’re caring for delicate plants.

Sunshine

Place indoor plants like Fern Plants, Moss, Ajuga Plant, Partridgeberry Plant, etc. in the area that receives the most sunlight; if required, shift them to track the sun. Since they need more sunlight to grow, most plants cannot flourish in a window that faces north. The sun will shine through an east-facing window from 7 to 11 am. You may meet difficulties in serving west-faced glasses.

Provide Less Water

In the winter, most plants only require weekly irrigation. Plants grown outside in the summer and moved from that intense light into a house with lesser lighting and lower temperatures will sort of fall dormant.

A houseplant will get a regulated stream of water from a watering can and a long spray without dribbles. Outdoor plants encounter rain, mist, and fog. Indoors? Your heating system’s dried-out air is present. To keep indoor plants happy, spray them with water every few days.

Mist or Humidity

Create a humidity tray to provide a humidifier for the plants. Put a thin layer of pebbles in a low-sided dish. To the depth of the stones, add water. You should keep the whole tray in a warm, sunny area with the plant pots on the rocks.

Most plants need humidity levels of between 50 and 60 percent to grow; in a home, the humidity may fall as low as 35 percent. In such a case, tent them in a large plastic bag to create a little micro greenhouse. Or you may use a shallow tray, place your potted plant inside, and add a few inches of water and pebbles. Around the plant, the humidity will be produced when the water evaporates.

Tonic

Leaf spot, which manifests as brown or yellow spots that start on an outer leaf and spread within, is the most prevalent disease that afflicts indoor plants. You should make a spray and tonic it on the leaves of your plants if they are in distress: To produce a suspension, combine a liter of water with four teaspoons of baking soda and a few droplets of murphy’s oil.

Dust, Keep your plants neat

When plants like Moss, Ajuga Plant, Vinca Minor Plant, Partridgeberry Plant, Black Eyed Susan, Oxeye Daisy Plants, Bulrush, etc. get dusty, they become unable to breathe. It obstructs the stomata, or tiny holes, on their leaves. A leaf surface covered with dirt won’t get the full benefit of sunlight, which would delay photosynthesis.

Rinsing plant with water

Give tiny plants a washing in a sink using the sprayer. More unusual plants may enter the shower. With a moist sponge, clean the leaves. After that, remove their leaves to prevent spills on the ground.

Finish Fertilization

Winter is a season of dormancy for several plants. You should not provide fertilizer and keep trying to help them. Set slumbering plants outside in the springtime’s warm sunlight and give them a nutrient like a sea kelp.

Increase the heat

Because it resembles the weather patterns they would encounter outside throughout 24 hours, the temperature variation seems comfortable to plants.

Eliminate Bugs

You should create your own homemade sticky traps to capture the tiny, black fungus gnats that swarm over indoor plants. You may also build a clove, repot plants, or apple cider vinegar trap in the ground.

In the end, House plants are not only a nice touch to any interior design, but they are also good for your health. With indoor house plants, you can breathe easier, give color and vitality to any area, and clean the air in your home. There is a perennial plant to fit any aesthetic and decor concept since they come in various forms, sizes, and colors.
