For flower care, potted flowers need special care an attention you wouldn’t usually pay to other flowers. For example, you need to consider drainage and the substance of the pot itself. Post made of clay or other products often absorbs water and keep the plants from absorbing it themselves. Opt for plastic or resin pots and you can help your plants live longer. Keep them pest free by using either pest control or natural home remedies like water and vinegar. Bugs and soil infestations will destroy potted plants very quickly and there is no guarantee you can revive them.
For potted plants, fertilizer is a great way to double the blooms and increase the size of your plant. Consulting a professional at a local gardening store will help you find the right type of fertilizer for your home without risking the plants health or even your own with harsh chemicals.
