Here is the list of Plants which never fail and their care tips .
Adenium is an extremely beautiful plant.The pink flower of the plant appears for a couple of weeks in spring.These plants require much sunlight for proper development. If they are growing in cloudy locations, they become spindly and develop less vibrant blooms. Some species can withstand 30-50% shade and the sun can burn their foliage.
Choose the location with the temperature not more than 95 degrees F. Adenium also enjoys high humidity. That is why in such areas these plants grow better, regardless of whether they are outdoors or indoors.
Adenium grows well in desert climates, so if you want to have this plant at home, make sure you know how to care for it. The following care instructions will help you to ensure the plant’s health.
Daily watering is essential only during hot summer days. As the flower grows in warm climates, where the temperature always remains above 50F even at night, remember to water it regularly even throughout winter months. This will allow the soil to dry out between watering.
The rubber plant (Ficus elastica) is a popular ornamental plant from the Ficus genus. In it’s natural habitat it grows over 30 metres tall, however, the varieties grown indoors are a much more manageable height.For the indoor grower looking for a tree type plant species with attractive foliage which can grow from 1ft to over 8ft tall, this is an excellent choice.
This species is quite an easy plant to care for and can grow well on low light. The worst a grower can do (which are common mistakes) is over-water, move the plant around too much or to a spot with less light or with colder temperatures. Sudden drops of temperature or cold drafts are also not good.
A nice brightly lit spot is ideal, without direct sunlight.A well-draining and well-aerated potting soil is needed. 1 part peat, 1 part pine bark and 1 part coarse sand (or perlite) is a good mix.Water once the soil becomes slightly dry to the touch and make sure the pot has sufficient drainage holes to allow excess water to seep through. The worst thing you can do regarding watering is “give it too much”.
Feed during spring and summer with a diluted liquid fertilizer every two weeks. Loss of leaves: Most common cause is over-watering, which will need attention asap (renew top soil or re-pot --pot up–). Other conditions can also cause leaves to drop including, low temperatures, not enough light or cold drafts. Moving your plant from a bright location to dim can also cause leaf drop. It’s normal for some of the bottom leaves to turn yellow and drop, but do check if conditions are OK.
Leaf edges yellowing: This is really a process of elimination. The problem could be poor soil, under-feeding, or too much water. You’ll need to check each one of the care instructions above and eliminate what your doing well and try to find the cause.
The ZZ plant is an easy to grow and care for indoor plant that displays small glossy leaves on stems which can grow up to 3 ft long indoors.It grows well in low or bright lighting conditions and with frequent or much less frequent amounts of water.
Most well draining potting mixes will suffice that contains a high amount of perlite or sand within the mix (you can add more perlite or sand if needed to a mix that is bought). During the main growing season (April - August) feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer which is diluted, once a month.
Lower leaves turning yellow: A small amount of lower leaves turning yellow and falling is quite normal. If many leaves are turning yellow - check that your not overwatering.Leaf tips turning brown: The cause is likley to be dry air and low humidity. Misting the leaves can help improve humidity.Leaves turning brown: Overwatering is the the most common cause here, especially if the leaflet feels a bit damp and not dry.
Direct sun and low light conditions, although bright light conditions with some sun light and shade is preferred.be careful not to over water as this can cause the root and base of the plant to rot. use a common well draining cactus and succulent potting mix soil available from all garden stores.
During the main growing season (spring - fall) feed with a diluted cactus and succulent fertilizer once a month.Base rot: The most common cause here is over watering in cold conditions which may first be identified by the leaves yellowing or drooping. You will need to remove the most affected parts or discard the whole plant if all the base is completely affected.
If you know you have not over watered check the temperature of the room because it may just be below 50°F (10°C)and causing the rot. Remember to take cuttings for propagation if this happens - unfortunately .
PEACE LILY PLANT
The peace lily plant is very popular and easy enough for most growers to care for and maintain, which is one of the reason’s it has become so favored.Temperature: Average room temperature’s are fine. Light: they like light, however, direct sunshine can damage plant leaves. A mixture of light and shade is great, if you can provide it. If you see the leaves yellowing this could be caused by too much sunlight.
Watering: This plant does drink a lot of water in the summer. Keeping the soil moist (not over watered) and allowing it to dry slightly near the top is a good idea. If in the winter the soil stays slightly damp for a couple of weeks or more, that’s ok , dont water any more. Your plant will let you know when it needs more.
Soil: A peat based potting mix with perlite is ideal or other peat based mixes. Fertilizer: Feed every 2 weeks with a diluted liquid plant food from spring until fall.
Recommended Planters : Planters by Size
Choose planters according to size required for your plants for various purposes and locations.
Buy ready to use nutrient rich soil:
In general use a soil-based compost placed over a generous layer of drainage material such as earthenware crocks, pebbles or gravel. Water and feed regularly, especially while plants are bearing flowers and fruit, when a high-potash fertilizer is recommended.
Buy Decorative Pebbles :
Decorate planters or garden landscapes with these decorative pebbles :
Using pebbles in a garden brings different colours and textures to the garden. Pebbles can also fill up otherwise empty space in the garden, leaving a visual that might be considered more interesting and aesthetic than simple dirt, soil or mulch
