Potted plants not only decorate our homes, but they also purify the air from carbon dioxide and increase humidity. To prevent vases from drying out, you need to water them in time.

Especially during the hot season plants are in great need of water. OBOZREVATEL collected tips on how to properly care for indoor flowers.

In summer plants need more care, because with the onset of heat the humidity and the amount of light in the apartment changes. Therefore, during this period, it is important not to harm the vase by excessive watering, because so begins the process of rotting, which delays growth.

You can tell if your pot is dry by sticking your finger an inch or two in the ground. And if you don't feel moist, you should water the plant. But don't allow a large amount of water to remain in the pot, because this will hurt the roots.

A safe option for keeping plants moist is to spray them. This way, you're sure you won't flood them with too much liquid.

You should also find out which vases like light and which are better in the shade. This will help prevent burning of the leaves. Because excessive sunlight only harms the plant and prevents it from growing.

This also applies to colder seasons. Do not place vases near hot radiators or heaters. But too cold places and drafts will also harm them.
