Bring Your Plants Inside | Fall Plant Care
Whether you're not excited for cooler weather or not our indoor house plants need to come back inside as the temperature now drop below zero at night & frost is always a possibility.
Brining your plants inside isn't as simple as moving their pots to another spot. There are a few steps to take to ensure your plants don't go into shock from the drastic environment change which can cause leaf loss & wilting.
Before brining your plants inside you want to make sure they're bug free. Whether it's pests like spider mites & mealybugs or actual spiders & aphids you don't want any pests coming inside. If it's warm enough give your plants a hose to wash them off. Keep in mind water that's too cold can have negative effects on your plants.
If you're worried about the cold water a neem treatment of your plant will do the trick as well. This will also help to remove any dust or dirt your plant so they can absorb as much sunlight as possible
Now's a good time to repot your plant if it has put growth it's pot while outside for the summer.
Light & humidity will change drastically for your plant as you bring them inside. The best way to acclimate you plants is to start by brining them in at night for the first few days & move them back outside in the mornings gradually increasing the time inside as you go until they are inside full time.
Remember as you move your plants back inside they will not need as much water so allow the soil a little more time to dry.
