Main Advices How to Take Care of House Plants in January

At this time, most plants are "asleep" in a dormant period. They should be watered less frequent and with a reduced amount of water per watering. The soil after each watering should be allowed to dry sufficiently prior to the next. Always pour water from the tray 15 minutes after watering. Also you can use LECHUZA planters with automatic watering systems for proper watering.

In January cacti and succulents should be watered every 12-13 days if placed in a warm room, and every 20 days in a cool one. It is better to use botanical scissors or a mini-pruner for pruning dry sprouts. Cut the stems if they have grown too long because of the lack of light.

Cut the dry or brownish tips from the leaves, but be sure to not damage the green part of the leaf. This can result in a deterioration of the plant.

Increase air humidity in the house by spraying the plants’ leaves with soft and slightly warm water. Place all pots side by side on a layer of expanded clay, placed in a small amount of water. Through this strategy you’ll reduce the negative effects of central heating. Ventilate the room, but also protect the plants from drafts. Fertilize the plants which are preparing to bloom. Regularly spray flowering plants, but be sure to not wet the flowers.
