HOW TO GROW HEALTHY LOW MAINTENANCE PLANTS -1


Today its been raining and a windy day It”s raining so the audio of my recording can be disturbed So if there is any disturbance in the sound please pardon me and bear with me My friends, I will talk about six plants today Since the video length would be too long If I explained about all the six plants That is why I will divide the video in two parts and will talk about only four of them today and will make part II and will explain the rest of them sorry I said three plants but actually I have explained four of them. Hello!First of all, today I will tell you about “Syngonium Plant ” which is a very interesting plant and many varieties of colors are available for these plants Friends this is an evergreen hardy plant and it has vines which is a climber But you can customize the plant by pruning and make it into a beautiful compact table top according to your desire. Friends we can do the repotting for this plant only once a year and they can be fertilized during spring and summer seasons the soil must be moist and during winter it can be left dry in between watering. It comes in very attractive shades of colors white, silver, cream ,green, pink and even purple colors are available in this plant. and I have this pink color Syngonium which we all call it as a “Charming Syngonium” Friends, this is “Pothos plant” which I have in three or four varieties and we call it “Money Plant”in India. This plant is very easy to care for and can survive in any kind of environment It thrives in bright indirect light But can be grown in low light too, You can propogate them by cutting stems and putting them in water after a few days the roots will start to come then we can transplant them in separate planters Pothos needs bright light to low light but not direct sunlight. they should be fertilized once a month. and for the variegated leaves of this plant like this one here … sunlight is necessary for variegation of the leaves if you keep this plant in low light for long then it will lose all the variegation from its leaves and it will have plain leaves so light is important for the variegation . you know very well that Pothos can be propogated in both water and soil, and when you plant them in soil then it must be well drained soil. and you must remember that when you do repotting then u must use fresh soil. You need to do the repotting for this plant when u feel that the pot has become smaller for the now grown plant whose roots must have over grown in time and you must use only one size bigger pot to transplant. and with fresh soil only. whenever you water them you must see the moisture in them because you need to keep the soil dry from time to time some Pothos come in very bright Neon green color which will help your room brighten up specially a dark corner of your room will automatically look bright if u put them there. and now this is Peace Lilly. which is a tropical evergreen plant which needs a shaded low light It does not need direct sunlight If you expose them to the direct Sunlight then the leaves wll start to the leaves will start to be yellow brown in color and then start to wilt the morning sun is good for them because it is very soft and gentle They cant bear the heat of the harsh midday sun which will burn their leaves the potting soil for peace lily must be well drained and repotting must be done in early spring every year when the plants grow many stems in the same pot then you need to separate them and replant them one by one in other planters well, as NASA has discovered that this is one of the oxygen releasing plants So it would be very good for you if you put them in your bedrooms or inside your homes. it will give you positive evergy all the time. Peace Lily does not need too much fertilizer and also no direct sunlight Being a tropical plant, it thrives in hot humid climate long time before these plants were made house plants , they used to be in the forest bed under the trees and used to survive in humid climate and used to enjoy dappled sunlight.That is why it does well in shaded filtered light. The Peace Lily is tropical but does not like direct sunlight. Now my friends these are Sansevieria plant which we call them also as Snake plants and some people call them as “Mother-in-law”s tongue” because they are very hardy plants. and friends its very easy to care for Snake plants you can grow them in your garden, in your balcony or inside your bedrooms This is an oxygen releasing plant and very good for your health to keep in bedrooms because it is an air purifier. very easy plant to care and you can cut it and put in water or soil for propogation which is very easy. snake plants should be in a well drained soil so that the soil wont rot if over watered. if u want to fertilize then vermicompost would be fine for them. you must bear in mind that whenever you want to water these plants you must check first by inserting a finger in the soil and if some soil sticks to your finger then you will know that the soil is still moist and there is no need to water them if the soil is not absolutely dry , u should not waer them. Sansevieria loves medium light but can tolerate low light also. but one this you must remember is not to expose them to the direct sunlight. Now its time for me to say bye, will see you in next video ( video gone too long) A HUMBLE SERVANT OF EARTH ASTRA AVANI PUNAM
