Indoor & Container Plant Care

Container planters & indoor plants from citrus to succulent are great additions to the home. As we bring our indoor plants outside for the summer and finish off our container planters, it's time to talk about plant care and how we can make sure they grow to their potential.

Helpful Hints

 Remember proper watering is key. Plants in containers will dry out quicker than they would in the ground and therefore needs to be watered more frequently.

Water frequency depends on the size and type of pot, the type of soil used, the type of plants used and the location of the container. A small container in a hot, windy location will dry out quicker than a large pot in a cool shady area. So, you will have to look at each container separately to see when it needs to be watered.

Don’t forget to Fertilize – Since you are watering containers more often, they also need to be fertilized more often (fertilizer is leaching through the pots quicker). A good, slow-releasing natural fertilizer, such as A heavy blooming plant will require more fertilizer. Acti-sol Hen Manure is recommended.

Try deadheading – By removing spent blooms you will increase the number of new blooms.
Remove unsightly, diseased or insect-infested foliage as soon as it appears to stop the spread of insects or diseases. Isolate any infected containers until the problem has been taken care of.

If plants are becoming too leggy, pinch back stems hard to create a more compact plant.
