How to help home flowers overwinter: 5 nuances that everyone should remember
Indoor flowers need special care in winter. Plants are under great stress due to reduced sunlight, humidity, and temperature changes. The owners should provide favorable conditions for the development of flowerpots during the cold season.
OBOZ.UA has found effective tips to help you cope with this. Many indoor plants are accustomed to a tropical climate, so a sharp change in weather conditions negatively affects them.
In winter, flowers start to grow more slowly due to reduced sunlight. They need time to adapt to the conditions and gather strength for the next bloom. Therefore, reduce watering to make it easier for the plant to overwinter.
Sufficient light is the most important condition for the development and growth of flowers. Find a place in your apartment that gets the most sunlight. You can also buy a special lamp for growing plants.
The air temperature should not be lower than +15 degrees Celsius. Avoid hot radiators and strong drafts.
In winter, you should also stop fertilizing the soil in flowerpots frequently. During this period, the plant does not need a lot of nutrients.
During the cold season, carefully examine your indoor flowers to detect pests or disease in time. Because at this time the plant is weak and defenseless.
