May works for indoor plants

During this beautiful month, May, our plants are resuming their life cycle "at full speed" following a period of stall due to the drop in temperatures and the typical climatic conditions of winter; if we have not already done so in April, we should therefore prepare our plants for spring. One of the operations to be carried out is to repot the plants that need it; we always use a top quality soil, so that the roots of the plants find the nourishment they need and can develop in the best way, also adding sand or lapillus to the soil of the plants that need good drainage; after repotting we can also prune our plants, removing the leafless branches or shortening the branches of the foliage we want to contain, a good pruning will favor a compact and thick development in the months to come.


May works: fertilization

Among the jobs of the month, we must dwell for a moment on the fertilizations, fundamental for the good growth of our seedlings. From this month all our houseplants need regular fertilization; we always remember that green plants need, during this period of the year, a fertilization rich above all in nitrogen; then many plants, like ficus, which reach considerable dimensions, need abundant and regular fertilizations. The succulents, on the other hand, prefer fertilizations rich in potassium, since excess nitrogen can favor the rotting of the tissues of these plants. Therefore, pay attention to the particular cultivation needs of your plants in order to see them grow bright, vigorous and healthy.
