It doesn't matter whether you're in the heart of the city or out in the countryside, your outdoor plants will be covered in snow. Fortunately for us, we can bring a bit of this green inside to help us make it through the cold season. It is possible to green up your home with a few simple tips to make winter more plant friendly.
If you're low on light during the winter or summer isn't long enough to get the vegetable harvest you've always wanted, this article is for you!
With shorter winter days, indoor plants are getting less and less light. It is important to pay attention to your lighting conditions by placing your plants in the brightest part of your home or by supplementing with a Sunblaster LED light. You can simply place the Sunblaster above your plants and give them some extra light during the daytime, around 12 hours a day. It's as easy as that!
Cuttings coming to life
In addition to good lighting, your plant cuttings will appreciate a bit of heat. To speed up the growing process, a heated pad is ideal. They are conveniently made with small growing holes that are perfect for placing your seeds and cuttings.
Last but not least: Watering!
With an LED light and a heating pad, the soil will dry out quickly. This may sound like a bad thing, but it is perfect for preventing root rot! Always make sure to check if the soil is completely dry before watering your cacti and succulents. You can check with your finger if there is any humidity left in the soil or simply use a hygrometer. If the soil is dry, it's time to water!
