Hello everyone! Namaste and welcome to my channel! Today I am going to talk to you about a topic which most of us are so passionate about. Today I want to talk about something which most of us have a very keen interest in and that is… and that is ………..House plants!! Hi! My name is Astra Avani Punam and today I am here to give you some tips on houseplants In other words I want to help turn your dream garden into a reality It is possible that you maybe very new in gardening or you might be at a beginner’s stage or maybe you already are an advanced gardener even then you will surely learn some new gardening tricks and tips here in my channel. So now then…. lets begin! The most important thing in gardening is to take care and maintain the collection of plants you have at home Maybe you are thinking that everybody knows this but some people bring plants to their homes but they know only watering the plants Only watering the plants is not enough. The first and foremost for the plants is that you take care of space and lighting . Different kinds of plants have different types of requirement of care. Some plants survive in low lighting , some need bright sunlight and some can do with medium light. So you need to care for your plants accordingly. If you want to keep your plants healthy then you must do repotting from time to time Repotting means?To change the planters or the pots. And when is necessary to change the pot? when you feel that your plant is not growing , when the roots of the plants are bound, when you feel that your potted plants are getting dried soon after you water them and not retaining water, Or when the roots are popping up on the surface Or when you feel that your planter is going to burst open, then its time to do the re-potting .. Then thats the time for you to change the pot. And whenever you change your planter, you must bear in your mind that you have to change into a pot which is only one size bigger. For instance your plant was in a 4 inches pot and u transplanted into a 8 or 10 inches pot then the plant will not grow well. If your plant was in a 6 inches pot then 7 or 8 inches pot will be good for transplanting.. So this way your plant will respond well and grow fast and healthy. The other thing is that whenever you plant in a new pot , the most important thing is to have a drainage hole. If you have been planting since a long time then you already know about the drainage hole.if you dont then I will show you in video afterwards.. There must be a drainage hole is at the bottom of the pot. If there is no hole then there will be the problem of over watering. If there is no drainage hole and you keep on watering the plant then where will all the water go. All the water will remain there and clog the bottom and the roots of the plants will rot and eventually die. Thiis is why you must have a drainage hole, I will show you everything in another video how to make and what to do after that. I will tell you everything afterwards. Whenever we do re-potting, sometimes we have used planters at home and we reuse them. So before reusing the old planter , you must wash it thoroughly first with soap and water. So that the disease and the pests of the old plant will not be transferred to the new plant. So you must wash the old used pot nicely with soap and water before re using it. Then your new plant will flourish well. So when you bring home a new plant from the plant nursery shop you must NEVER transplant it to another pot immediately.You must not re pot it as soon as you reach home. Try to understand the plant was in the Nursery for so long and was used to that environment, It will take some time to adjust to the new environment.. So you must make it a point to keep them in their old pots for a few days. Keep watering them according to their moisture retention. dont water them without checking their moisture. after a few days have passed or at least a week has gone by, only then you should transplant the plants. Because you know most of the time when we bring plants from nursery we do the re-potting immediately. The plants get shocked and can not bear the sudden change .This is why most of the plants die. So wait for a few days and only then do the transplanting. My friends,I must end now , because this was my first video and I wanted to make it short.
