Posted by Eureka Farms on

A famous quote about plants that links to our human life encourages that:

"Anywhere life plants you, bloom with beauty."

Now that you know that it's up to you to grow and care with love the new seeds you're enthusiastically holding in your hands, We bet you've heard at slightest one myth from other plant owners that everyone believes it's true. Most of them are simple rumors. We've noticed the same myths as you throughout our daily communications with plant parents, so here we go listing and revealing their truth.  

#1: Repotting means improving your plants health

It's the most familiar rumor of all time, yet it's not 100% accurate. Repotting your plant is an excellent fix when the problem is on roots, but not on every occasion. Frequently, plants might be coping with other difficulties such as the lack of light, over or under-watering, unknown pests, or a need for hummus. In these conditions, repotting boosts the problem and weakens the plant. Therefore, contact actual greenery experts before you permanently damage your beautiful plant. Feel free to email or visit us, whatever might be convenient to you, and let's save time, unnecessary expenses, and most importantly, your plant.

#2: Reconditioning into a cachepot

Proper drainage is constantly the most suitable treatment for a long-lasting, healthful plant. Our beautiful cachepots do not have a drainage opening to secure your floor, rug, or tabletop from seeping water and soil traces. Nevertheless, considering that root balls need sufficient airflow, the most beneficial practice is to hold the plant in its synthetic pot. Transfer the potted plant from the cachepot, carry it to a sink or yard to water, and permit it to go through a complete drainage process before restoring it. 

#3: Water orchids with ice cubes

This myth is widespread because scientific research confirms ice cubes as a natural, effective method to water an orchid gently and constantly. Nonetheless, we're considering it as a highly effective approach when this study results come from a short timeline by testing orchids on laboratory conditions, while in a residence or office, there won't be any ideal situation for this kind of plant. Our chosen method is to sink and water the pot for 15-20 minutes to allow the chunky bark to hydrate thoroughly and stop nutrients from draining away from the soil, ash, or similar elements. Remember to let the orchid dry wholly before redoing the process based on the class of orchid you are currently taking care of within 26,000 categories discovered worldwide.

#4: Watering is always the answer

There are two main things to check when you notice a droopy plant instantly. If it is not suffering from root problems, it's time to start watering it. Yet, even when the plant has a root issue, it doesn't always mean that watering it will solve anything. A different root problem might be an over-watered plant or placed into a container with water in the pot's base. It would help to quickly let the taproot shell dry out and then water it way less frequently. Roots hit by this difficulty will look dull, soft, and their leaves start falling on many occasions. Healthy sources are usually light in color and look thick, flexible, and beautiful.  

#5: Don't water air plants

It might be planted in the Moon, and it still needs water, whatever it might look like, or its classification conditions could be. Water is inevitable for existence. Nonetheless, air plants are different because they have special watering requirements. Leading issues in cultivating air plants stand for the abundance of light and moisture. The nature of water is fundamental. You do not need essentially a distilled one, as you can replace it with filtered or tap water that has remained out overnight to free the chlorine.

Furthermore, never water plants at night, regardless of your schedule. The plant plays a crucial role in catching up on carbon dioxide at night. Place it safely in a lovely spot where your plant does not rest on anything that holds moisture, fabric, or sand.
