How to boost your plant’s growth?

How to boost your plant’s growth?

Is your plant growing the way it is supposed to? A wide variety of factors could be influencing this. We’ll walk you through a few of them to help you improve your plant’s growth and overall health.

Every plant has its unique requirements, and you will notice these are not being met if the plant stops growing or looks a bit dull. Take a look at the following steps, and consider which step you could take better care of, in order to help your plant to grow and flourish!

Pick the Right Location

If your plant is not growing as you expected, an important factor could be the amount of light exposure. Sunlight is obviously one of the most important ingredients for optimal plant growth and health. Did you change something in your interior or in the garden that might have changed or blocked the lighting? Is the spot too sunny, too dark, or are other plants blocking the availability of sunlight? 

Did You Check the Soil? 

You would expect to buy a plant that contains the right soil in the grow pot. Typically this soil mix doesn't contain soil, but peat, coir, and perlite. The benefit of repotting the plant in the right soil is high. The nutrients a plant gains from high-quality soil mixes are a huge advantage for the growth and development of the plant. Even when you buy container indoor plants, it’s often required to first change the soil. 

Feed Your Plant the Required Nutrients

It’s not only the soil that contains important nutrients. Besides the right soil, it is beneficial to feed your plants with high-quality nutrients in the form of organic plant food. For example, Nurseryland Liquid Organic Plant Food is a concentrate that provides balanced nutrition to both indoor and outdoor plants. Nurseryland Liquid Organic Plant Food is a fertilizer that nurtures your plant in order to grow and flourish in an optimal way. Nutrition is a very important step, that is a key factor during spring and summer. There’s no need to overdo fertilizing. Liquid plant food is easy to blend in the watering can and can be a complete boost to the health of your plant that’s needed for an optimal amount of nutrients to establish growth. 

Last but not Least: Water! 

Of course, water itself is needed for healthy growth, too. Make sure to give enough water. Not too much, not too little. Every plant has its guidelines and needs on water. Consider these guidelines when you buy a new plant, or when your plant is not growing as expected. Both too little or too much water can cause harm, so it’s important to find the right balance. Once found, your plant will look better for sure! This might sound logical, but the amount of watering is a key factor to change for your plants to look way better.
