Most indoor plants will benefit from liquid plant fertiliser or slow-release pellets. Fertiliser will give your plants a top-up of nutrients that have been absorbed from your plant compost. In general we recommend diluting liquid fertiliser with water to half the strength recommended on the bottle.
You should only fertilise your plants during the growing phase in Spring and Summer.
Add half strength liquid fertiliser to your plants when you water them. In general we recommend adding the fertiliser monthly or twice a month. We have specific instructions on each plant product page.
Generally most indoor plants will be happy with the temperature range in the average UK home (18-20°C). Just be sure to keep your plants away from heat sources such as radiators and fireplaces, and from draughty positions such as near doors, hallways and single-glazed windows.
The average humidity in peoples homes is around 40-50%, this is on the low side for plants which tend to need humidity levels of at least 60% in order to thrive. Tropical plants are used to humidity levels as high as 70-80% in their native rainforests.
So most indoor plants will appreciate some extra humidity.
There are 5 good ways to increase humidity for your plants:
1) Group your plants together and that will boost humidity
2) Mist your plants regularly
3) Set your plants on a tray of pebbles
4) Consider using a humidifier
5) Put your plants in bathrooms or kitchens were humidity tends to be higher
