Have your very own (plant) zombie in your home? With Halloween around the corner, we thought we’d (trick-or) treat you with some handy hints on how to bring your Indoor Plant back from the grave.
So whether you forgot to water your plant-pal because you had a busy week at work, or you were just binge-watching Netflix, keep on reading.
RE-POT TO REVIVE
The first step to resurrecting your plant is re-potting. Don't let your Indoor Plants get stuck in their old ways. Give your Indoor Plant the old 'Fixer-Upper' treatment and upgrade their home to a bigger pot than their last. Don’t forget to use some high-quality indoor plant potting mix to really kick start your plant’s growth.
TRIM, TRIM, TRIM
Getting in the spirit of Halloween? Chanel Dr Jekyll and pop your gloves on and snip back those brown leaves and roots. When trimming, be careful not to overdo it and only snip the brown part of the browning leaves. Trimming back leaves is important so the Indoor Plant doesn't put its energy into trying to repair damaged leaves. When trimming, we recommend using our Bonsai Scissors for a nice, clean cut!
If your Indoor Plant is in too much sun or not enough, move them around your home. If you’re unsure, check their leaves. If they look brittle with patches, this may indicate your Indoor Plant has been sunbathing for too long. On the other hand, if their leaves are small and pale in colour, your baby might need need some Vitamin D. They won’t mind the change of scenery, trust us! If you're not sure of lighting see our tips and tricks HERE.
WATCH THEIR DRINKING!
This tip may be obvious, but water is key! You don’t want to dehydrate or flood your Indoor Plant, so if the leaves are brittle and soil is dry, make your plant-pal a drink. If the soil is damp, leave it be!
You can tell if your plant has had too many drinks if there is mold and rot on their roots... They may have a plant-hangover but nothing that some TLC can’t fix! If you are prone to plant-neglect, it’s okay!
PLANTS GET HANGRY TOO
Reviving your Indoor Plant also means feeding them. We aren’t the only ones who like a snack, and our plant buddies are also foodies. Use our delicious The Good Plant Co Indoor Plant Food to give your baby a nutrient boost.
