Overwatering can lead to root rot and other problems, such as fungal and bacterial infections. Anthurium grows on trees in the rainforests so they are used to regular moisture but they are never sitting in water. They need that moisture with air to absorb nutrients. They really struggle when allowed to dry out completely and can get dry rot. When watering, it’s important to use room-temperature water, as cold water can shock the plant and cause leaf loss.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="fertilization">Fertilization</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11375 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11375 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>Fertilizing is an essential part of Antherium houseplant care. Be sure to fertilize at some point during the growing season (spring and summer). A balanced, fertilizer with an equal ratio works. You can adapt it to contain more specific nutrients for blooming once your plant has matured and settled into your home. <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Miracle-Gro-100720-Leaf-Shine-8-Ounce/dp/B0071E1YJO/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>Fertilizer</strong></a> foliar sprays can work well too. Anthurium is epiphytic so they are used to small amounts of nutrients floating through the air or coming off the tree it’s attached to. They are not heavy feeders so they cannot handle large feeds at once. Small amounts over a regular basis work best. It’s important not to over-fertilize, as this can lead to burnt leaves, crisping edges, yellowing, and other problems.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="common-pests-and-diseases">Common Pests and Diseases</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11376 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11376 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Pests-and-Diseases-1.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>Anthurium are very hearty plants.

They are understory plants and thrive in constant high humidity and very warm temperatures among moss, ferns, and a plethora of other moisture-loving understory plants.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="lighting">Lighting</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11357 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11357 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-2.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>One of the most critical factors in caring for Alocasia Frydek is ensuring that it receives the right amount of light. Because it is a tropical understory plant, Alocasia Frydek prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch its thin leaves and cause them to dry out too quickly. Therefore, it is best to place the plant near a window with filtered sunlight or provide it with artificial light, such as grow lights. A window with direct morning light or a window with afternoon light and a sheer curtain will be perfect. No low light areas or dark corners. This Alocasia will get leggy and struggle to keep leaves if it doesn’t have the light it needs.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="watering">Watering</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11358 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11358 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Watering-2.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>In addition to lighting, Alocasia Frydek requires a specific watering routine. Overwatering can lead to root rot, while under-watering can cause the plant to drop leaves and eventually rot and die. To avoid this, it is crucial to check the potting media moisture regularly. Water the plant when the top inch of the substrate is dry, ensuring that the water drains from the pot’s bottom. Avoid leaving the plant in standing water, as it can lead to root rot. However, a self-watering <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Planters-Drainage-Removable-Decorative-Outdoor/dp/B09C5QHJGL/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>pot</strong></a> with a wicking system works incredibly well with Alocasia.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="potting-mix">Potting mix</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11359 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11359 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Potting-mix.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>The type of mix used for Alocasia Frydek is also essential for its growth. The plant prefers well-draining, fertile <a href="https://www.amazon.com/GROW-GMC40l-Decoration-Aquaponics-Hydroponics/dp/B00MHQ0IHA/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>soil</strong></a> that is rich in organic matter. Alocasia Frydek can be grown in a mix of sphagnum moss, perlite, bark, and even worm castings or charcoal. Alocasia needs its mix to hold water for humidity around the roots. Sphagnum Moss is perfect for this. They will rot if there is not enough aeration though so chunky things like perlite and bark can create the space for airflow around the roots. Repot when they begin to outgrow the pot. This particular Alocasia does not like to be root bound and will drop leaves if not repotted regularly.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="humidity">Humidity</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11360 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11360 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Humidity-2.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>Another important aspect of Alocasia Frydek’s care is maintaining proper humidity levels. They have very thin leaves and need high ambient humidity. The plant thrives in humid environments, and low humidity can cause its leaves to dry out crisp up, and turn brown. They prefer 50%-80% humidity for them to thrive. To maintain humidity, you can use pebble trays or place a <a href="https://www.amazon.com/LEVOIT-Humidifiers-Bedroom-Diffuser-Humidification/dp/B09W21XFS5/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>humidifier</strong></a> nearby.

Spidermites love Alocasia Frydek. Their leaves are thinner and more soft than other Alocasia so they tend to be a favorite of spider mites. Therefore, it is crucial to inspect the plant regularly for any signs of infestation, such as yellowing leaves, stunted growth, or sticky residue. If an infestation is detected, it is best to treat the plant with insecticidal soap or a miticide. Beneficial insects can work well if you know the specific spider mite pest. Another thing to note is that systemic pesticides do not work on spider mites. They do work on thrips though.</p><p>Another issue with Alocasia Frydek is fungal and bacterial leaf diseases. They need good airflow in their high-humidity environments or their wet velvet foliage is perfect for bacteria and fungus to grow. Remove the infected leaves and use a copper fungicide to prevent the spread.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="fertilization">Fertilization</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11362 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11362 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilization.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>Alocasia are heavy feeders and need to be regularly fertilized. They consume quite a bit of the nutrient as an understory plant. Everything falling to the base of the trees and breaking down means constant nutrients for an Alocasia. Fertilize with a slow-release fertilizer or a regular dose every <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Watering-Indoor-Plants-Succulents-Flowers/dp/B0832LCD1G/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>watering</strong></a>. If the Frydek does not get enough fertilizer it will drop a leaf every time it grows a new one. Thinner-leaved Alocasia like a Frydek can be susceptible to leaf burn from over-fertilization though. They are sensitive to chemicals in water and fertilizer so pay attention and switch fertilizer amounts and brands as needed.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="propagation">Propagation</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11363 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11363 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Propagation-2.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>We do have a whole article on Alocasia propagation if you need more details.

These plants are native to tropical and subtropical regions, primarily found in Central and South America, Africa, and southern Asia. Brazil specifically has hundreds of Peperomia species we have cultivated as houseplants. Peperomia plants come in various sizes, ranging from tiny succulent-like varieties to larger, bushy specimens. The most common types you’ll encounter are <a href="https://plance.co/zanlLR" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>Peperomia Obtusifolia</strong></a>, Peperomia caperata, and Peperomia Puteolata.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="lighting">Lighting</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11340 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11340 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Lighting-1.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>Peperomia plants prefer bright but indirect light. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight, as it can scorch their leaves. The white on the foliage of some species is especially susceptible to browning if there is too much light. Peperomia caperata species will melt the edges of their foliage into much light. Place your Peperomia in a north or east-facing window, or provide filtered light using sheer curtains or blinds for western afternoon light. The thicker the Peperomia leaves then the more light it can handle. Peperomia Obtusifolia can handle more <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Lights-Spectrum-Indoor-5-Level-Dimmable/dp/B085CDPSMR/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>light</strong></a> than most other Peperomia.

Some Peperomias are more compact, while others can grow quite tall and require larger pots. Choose a pot that allows enough room for the roots to grow, but not too much excess soil that can lead to overwatering.</p><p>Terracotta pots work well to prevent rot but will need to be soaked or bottom watered regularly to keep the humidity up and to prevent to much moisture from being removed from the plant and causing rot.

Follow these guidelines to keep your Peperomia hydrated:</p><p>To prevent overwatering, allow the top inch of the soil to dry out between <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Watering-Indoor-Plants-Succulents-Flowers/dp/B0832LCD1G/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>watering</strong></a> sessions. Stick your finger or a stick into the soil to determine its moisture level. You can also feel the foliage and when it becomes thinner and more flexible along with dry soil then it needs to be watered.</p><p>&nbsp;Water your Peperomia thoroughly until the excess water drains out from the bottom of the pot. Discard any standing water to prevent root rot. Avoid putting water on the leaves directly, because it can lead to fungal diseases. You can bottom water your Peperomia or use a thin spouted watering can to get to the base of the plant and avoid water on the leaves. If your Peperomia is in a closed terrarium it will need water very rarely.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="fertilize">Fertilize</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11346 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11346 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Fertilize.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>Peperomia do not need to be fertilized that often and are sensitive to being over-fertilized.

When you take your plants outside at the end of wintertime and the beginning of springtime, their root systems might have filled up the pots over winter, or they might be close to filling up the <a href="https://www.amazon.com/GARDIFE-Watering-Planters-Drainage-Succulents/dp/B09X56KLL3/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>pots</strong></a>. You do not want your plant going outside, having a very full root system, and outgrowing the pot in the middle of summertime. It can be very annoying and set your plant back during its high growth period.</p><p>&nbsp;If you’re repotting it in the middle of spring and summertime, while it’s trying to push out all of this new growth, possibly producing fruit or flowers at the same time, it can cause your plant to lose those leaves, along with those fruits and flowers. So you definitely want to make sure that you’re repotting them before you set them out there. This is so the roots can grow back in prime conditions. Then your plant can go ahead and have full growth outside and you don’t have to disturb them the entire growing season.&nbsp; You can just report them when you’re bringing them back indoors if they need it.</p><h4 class="wp-block-heading" id="their-root-system-is-going-to-grow-as-the-entire-plant-grows">Their root system is going to grow as the entire plant grows.</h4><p>So you also want to make sure that the pot is going to work for the outside conditions that you’re putting it in. For example, inside, maybe a terracotta pot was the best thing for you because you were trying to prevent over-<a href="https://www.amazon.com/Indoor-Watering-Bonsai-Plants-WhaleLife/dp/B07V32974F/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>watering</strong></a> in the wintertime, moving them outside in the springtime. They’re going to dry out much faster, especially with the wind. If you’re in a southern state where it dries out and it gets really hot, then perhaps a terracotta pot is not going to be the best thing for your plant. You may want to switch it up to a plastic or ceramic pot so it holds onto more moisture for you. It just depends on the plant’s needs.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="clean-your-leaves">Clean your leaves</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11326 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11326 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Clean-your-leaves.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>The next thing that you can do after repotting your plant is clean off the leaves. Your plant has sat through the entire winter holding onto all the dust, dirt, and debris from your home. It may not have been able to photosynthesize very well. When you are taking your plant outside, you want to make sure that they’re going to be able to absorb as much sun as possible, so that way they can grow as much as possible.</p><h4 class="wp-block-heading" id="also-when-youre-repotting-your-plant-you-probably-got-some-dirt-on-the-leaves">Also, when you’re repotting your plant, you probably got some dirt on the leaves.</h4><p>I know I always do. I can never repot a plant without getting a bunch of dirt all over the foliage.&nbsp; Make sure that you are cleaning off the leaves. You can use an insecticidal soap as well.</p><p>It’s also best to do a pest check on your plants well and treat them for pests before you put them out. So that way your plant can be at its best going forward outside. If you have a particular plant that has a heavy pest problem, generally try to rinse off the leaves as much as possible and then set them outside. A lot of times you can have natural predators coming onto the plant to take care of a huge pest infestation versus if you just set a plant outside that had just a little bit of a pest infestation, it might not be enough to call all those predators over. They probably have a larger snack elsewhere and then your plant will struggle with pests the entire season. So that’s something to keep in mind as well.</p><p>Make sure that you’re cleaning your leaves, taking care of your plant as far as that goes, and making sure your plant is going to be as healthy as possible when you’re setting it outside. You can make the best decision for your plant based on what you see when you’re cleaning the leaves.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="prune-your-plant">Prune your plant</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11327 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11327 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Prune-your-plant.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>After you’re done cleaning the leaves, you want to go ahead and prune your plant. Because your plant is going to be growing prolifically outside, it is going to run wild with the shape that it has. So, if you have a plant that only has one vine, it’s going to grow that one vine super huge for you, which may be what you want. However, if it’s not what you want, you want that vine to branch out and have two or even three vines, then maybe prune that. If you have a particular plant that already grows very quickly and has overgrown, maybe you want to trim that back and kind of clean that up a little bit so that it can take advantage.</p><p>&nbsp;Tradescantia especially, is one of those plants where they have stretched out over winter and need to be pruned back quite a bit. Repot cuttings up top to have a very full, lush-looking pot that can grow throughout the summertime. It just depends on what style you’re going for with your plant, and what’s going to work best for your plant in your particular situation.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="check-the-weather">Check The Weather</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11328 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11328 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Check-The-Weather.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>After you’re done pruning and shaping your plant the way you want it to be, you want to take a look at the weather. The majority of indoor house plants are not frost tolerant. You do want to make sure that you are well past the frost date. You do not want to put your house plant out on your porch, have it be big and beautiful going through 70-degree and 80-degree days, and then suddenly it drops down into the low 30s, or upper 20s overnight. Also, you would come out to a very sad, unhappy, no more leaves, plant. It a probably not going to make it plant, unfortunately. So definitely make sure you’re checking the weather, and that you’re paying attention.</p><p>You research your plant and you make sure that your plant can survive in the condition that you’re putting it out outside. Just because it’s a warm, beautiful day outside today does not mean that it’s going to stay that way, and it does not mean that it is now time to bring all your house plants out.</p><p>You may even have to jump around a little bit. Bring them out when it’s warm on the warm days, bring them back in on the cooler days, and just pay attention throughout the days when it’s getting warmer and cooler. Or stagger cooler temp-loving plants and then the warmer-loving plants as the season goes on. Some people like to do that. Other people like to go ahead and just bring all their plants directly out as soon as they know that it is going to be warm for the rest of summertime. So it just depends on what’s going to work best for you.</p><h2 class="wp-block-heading" id="acclimate">Acclimate</h2><figure class="wp-block-image aligncenter size-large is-resized is-style-rounded"><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11329 lazyload" width="768" height="432" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate.jpg 1280w"><noscript><img decoding="async" src="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate-1024x576.jpg" alt class="wp-image-11329 lazyload" width="768" height="432" srcset="https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate-300x169.jpg 300w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate-768x432.jpg 768w, https://indoorgardening.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/05/Acclimate.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px"></noscript></figure><p>The last thing that we wanted to talk about is when you are moving your plants outside, make sure that you’re acclimating them. This is such an important step that we actually have an entire article on how to acclimate your plants and what acclimating means for your plants.</p><p>Essentially, the short version is, it’s making sure that your plants can handle the conditions that you’re putting them in. If they’re going from a very dark area and you’re going to put them in the bright, direct sun outside, they’re going to burn, they’re going to be sad, they’re going to be cranky, and they’re going to lose leaves. They’re certainly not going to be putting out any new beautiful growth. So definitely make sure that you’re giving them a little bit more <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Lights-Spectrum-Indoor-5-Level-Dimmable/dp/B085CDPSMR/?tag=indoorgard0e3-20" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"><strong>light</strong></a> at a time.</p><h4 class="wp-block-heading" id="nbspif-youre-switching-them-from-warm-temperatures-to-cool-temperatures"> If you’re switching them from warm temperatures to cool temperatures.</h4><p>They need to be acclimated. Drop the temperatures and put them in a cooler room a little bit, or move them out for a little bit cooler temperatures, but not as cold as it could be. Kind of adjust slowly. Plants do not like big events happening in their lives. They really don’t. They like small, tiny adjustments and they tend to throw fits and lose leaves and stop new growth and those sorts of things.</p><p>If we end up shocking them too much, it can also cause them to become susceptible to pests and fungal and bacterial issues like root rot. So it’s worth taking the time to acclimate your plant, to be rewarded with a healthy plant throughout the summer so you can have a big, beautiful plant to do whatever you want with at the end of the season.</p><p>Acclimating your plants is one of the most important things to do to make sure that your plant is fully taking advantage of being outside this season.</p><h4 class="wp-block-heading" id="i-know-it-sounds-like-a-lot-of-work-prepping-your-plant-to-go-outside">I know it sounds like a lot of work prepping your plant to go outside.</h4><p>It is definitely worth it, though, for the incredible growth that these plants will have when they’re put outside. Inside will definitely never be able to give them all the things that they can get outdoors.</p><p>&nbsp;The lighting is different inside. It’s filtered inside. They’re not going to get the things that they need like they can outside. They can get watered and rained on regularly. They can have natural predators come by. Also, they can have natural pollinators. Instead of you having to constantly worry with a little paintbrush whether your plants are getting pollinated or not, they can also soak up nutrients just by the wind and the air.</p><p>A lot of house plants are aroids or epiphytic plants, and just being outside can create a huge difference in their growth. It’s worth taking the time to shuffle them outside especially if you follow all the tips in this article today.</p><figure class="wp-block-embed is-type-video is-provider-youtube wp-block-embed-youtube wp-embed-aspect-16-9 wp-has-aspect-ratio"></figure> Mon, 08 May 2023 09:11:15 -0700 Lauren Willshire en-US text/html https://indoorgardening.com/5-things-to-do-before-moving-your-plants-outside/ Indoor Gardening Articles greenhouse gardening indoor gardening indoor gardening guides indoor plants plant care
