Question: WHAT HAVE MY PLANTS
Hi! For my house I have chosen some houseplants that do not need special care, in light of the fact that my thumb is not black ... more !!! The only ones that look good, strangely, are the orchids that they gave me ... For the rest, the dwarf rose plant has dried flowers, the tillandsia has faded and the dracaena marginata has dry tips ... In this cold period, should I put them on the balcony anyway? Home temperature is normal, maybe I should increase humidity? How? And also when I know it's time to decant or fertilize? Many thanks in advance!!!
Answer: WHAT HAVE MY PLANTS
roses, though dwarf, are garden plants, so if you have kept them indoors for a long time they are suffering from the unfavorable climate, you can try to keep them in an unheated area of the house, with a good luminosity and a good humidity, without water them if the soil is damp. The dragon tree with dry tips probably suffers from the often very dry climate present in the house. The tillandsia has probably finished flowering, and will therefore disappear. To increase the environmental humidity you can vaporize the foliage of your plants every day with demineralised water, or put them in large saucers, with 3-4 cm of clay on the bottom, and 2 cm of water, so that the water it does not reach the pots, in this way the evaporation of the water will increase the environmental humidity. Fertilizers for indoor plants grow every 15-20 days, from April to September, with specific fertilizers for each type of plant. Repotting is generally done when the plants begin to produce roots that come out of the pot.
