|I will choose the right plant. Hello ZZ|
Resolution #2 - I will water completely, but at intervals that are appropriate for the plant's specific needs. Surprise! Watering once a week is not a universally correct answer to the question, "How often should I water?"
|I will remember to empty the saucer|
|I will use a pebble tray and cluster plants in groups|
|I will feed only when I see new leaves or flower buds|
If my plants are in low light sites (north windows) I won't fertilize at all November through perhaps March when our day length and light intensity are so low that plants tend to "rest". I promise to use houseplant-specific fertilizers at the recommended rate.
|I will upsize when needed|
Your 2016 resolutions are now sworn and witnessed. You may now lower your hand and spend the New Year enjoying more beautiful houseplants and great chocolate desserts!
