Myth number 1. You need to transplant the purchased plant as soon as possible.
After buying a plant, it is advisable to transplant, since the substrate that was already in the pot, where the plant is located, is unlikely to contribute to its growth. Any move for a plant is a serious stress, all creatures need to adapt to new lighting, temperature, humidity, and even orientation in relation to the window.
Myth number 2. The place of plants is on the windowsill.
Some houseplant species are not very ambitious in their location. It is enough to group the plants according to the degree of desired illumination, evaluate the illumination in individual zones, and you can safely expand the area of green spaces in the interior. But do not forget about the "winter mode" when plants prefer to move closer to the window.
Myth number 3. Abundant watering is always for the benefit of the plant.
With watering, it is better to be careful and not add a little water than to overfill. To avoid dampness and the risk of decay is possible only by checking the degree of drying of the substrate between water treatments, or using special indicators.
Myth number 4. Generous feeding are best friends.
The more fertilizer, the better the growth and flowering of the plants. It would seem that there is nothing contradictory in this statement.
Organic matter “in the form of long-acting fertilizers” is better not to be taken into account, as it can lead to serious disruption of growth.
Myth number 5. Plants can be enemies to each other.
For an average room of 15 squares, at least 3-room adult cultures are needed. And if they are dusty, neglected and not getting enough attention, then their leaves simply turn into a refuge for allergens and dirt.
