Count on Shane Tinker Enterprises to help you with some care tips for spring that will keep your tropical plants Savannah GA looking great throughout the calendar year.
- Timing Is Important
If you’ve kept tropical flowers indoors during the winter months but want to move them outside, know that the tropical blooms need time to adjust. Overnight temperatures should be higher than 50° regularly before you place plants outdoors. And be sure that you are well past any danger of a nighttime frost.
- Plants Need Sun Protection
While spring blooms don’t need a coat of sunscreen, they too can be burnt by too much exposure to the sun too soon. After being in indoor light (even if in a windowsill), plants need time to adjust. It’s best to ease plants into spring sun by leaving them out for only an hour or two at first before subjecting them to full daylong sunlight.
- Location Matters
Your plants want the best real estate, too. Wind and rain can cause problems for your plants. Wind can cause damage to new blooms, young stalks or otherwise fragile parts. Winds can also blow over pots and cause breakage or other trauma. Rain also can be harmful, causing over-watering that can drown your plant or suffocate its roots. One solution? Use fabric containers that are porous and allow excessive rainwater to escape.
- Time to Fertilize
Spring is a good time to give your tropical plants Savannah GA a new home. Plants that have been sitting in the same soil for a year could benefit from a new supply, so spring is a great time to repot those plants, especially those that have grown a lot in the past 12 months. Also fertilize plants to give them the nutrients they need to thrive.
- Spring Cleaning
Savannah, GA homeowners should be careful when cleaning houseplants. Many commercial houseplant polishers can actually clog pores. A feather duster, cheesecloth, damp paper towel or a solution of water and dishwashing liquid is all you really need.
