In Dubai, the weather has finally turned cold. Though the winters in this location aren’t as severe as in other parts of the world, you should be careful of your indoor plant life because it needs special attention to thrive.
Indoor plant life can be affected by the usage of an indoor heater and the resulting decrease in humidity. Furthermore, the majority of dwellings in the UAE do not receive enough sunlight, which is necessary for plant life to survive. All of this might hasten the extinction of plant life.
Check out some tips laid by us to take care of your plants in this winter season:
Reduce water consumption
The most significant issue with indoor trees and flowers is that they will no longer have enough soil to absorb water. As a result, make ensuring that you provide the plant with just enough water. The best method is to check the moisture level of the soil before watering the plant. 1 inch deep into the dirt, insert your finger. If the soil appears to be damp, stop watering the plant. Excess water can cause roots to decay and blossoms to die prematurely.
Take care of the plant
Examine the plant’s leaves and stem to ensure that they are free of dirt and debris. Spraying water on the leaves will make them easier to handle. Cleaning the leaves not only promotes healthy growth but also gives your plant a gleaming appearance. If you have indoor flowering plants, make sure to take care of them as well. If there are any dried leaves, you must dispose of them as well, since they will rot and injure the plant.
Keep the indoor pests away
In Dubai, indoor flies are a major problem. They are no longer harmful to the plant, but they can be a nuisance since they eat on rotting leaves and dirt. Insects can also thrive indoors, causing damage to the plant. To protect your plants, you may conduct research online and produce your pesticides, which are more ecologically friendly.
Allow enough sunlight to reach them
Plants require sunlight for photosynthesis and growth. Ascertain that your indoor plant receives adequate light. You may put them on the balcony or near a south-facing window to ensure that they get enough light. If natural light is a problem, artificial light, such as LED light, might be used instead. It’s a warning that huge indoor plants aren’t getting enough light when they get leggy.
