PLANT CARE 101

#singaporelandscapedesign

Common plant killer: 1. Over watering


So really how much water do we need for the plant and what is the frequency of watering?
Indoor plants normally required 5-7days watering rate and some can stretched to 14days depending. Water once a week will be optimum. For the plant above, 1 litre of water a week. Do remember not to be over zealous in watering :)

Common plant killer: 2. Pest


Common pest for indoor plants are these fluffy white bug, Mealy Bugs
Just simply wipe them off manually or sponge off with soapy water.


Common pest for indoor plants are Scale Insects found on the stems/ branches normally.
Just simply scrape off with a sharp tool. Sponge off with soapy water or cut off affected area.
Fertilization and fungicide: 1- 2 times a month together with watering


Fertilization and fungicide application directed to the roots. You can do this together with watering and simply mix them in the Watering Can as part of watering regime. *See direction for use of fungicide at the back of the bottle.


Sustaining a tree indoor can be a real feat. Let's stress them even more in a bathroom conditions with plant growth light. Had been 6 months and counting. Watch your watering and make sure you don't over water them. Once a week watering will suffice. Applying high potassium, K, nutrients solution will help growth and health of plants in low light conditions.


Taking care of indoor vertical garden can be intimidating for some owners especially we had about 100 plants on this wall. For low light indoor conditions, I would suggest the watering rate to be 3 -7 days watering frequency. Misting on the plants leaves can be a daily or alternate day affair if you find it therapeutic which I enjoyed pretty much. This is a robust system for residential home use. Do contact me if you are keen to try. #thegreenresponse

Local native plants varieties are hardy and less susceptible to diseases because they are grown in our local climatic conditions. Go local! You will save yourselves from plants being suicidal!

Now you can be confident to take care of your indoor plants :)
