How to take care of water and light of houseplants?
Remember that light is like food for plants; Know the light needs of your plants and see how much light each one needs.
We all want to take good care of our plants, but sometimes it is a little difficult to care for a few plants without knowing their different environmental needs. Irrigation of plants is the most important issue in their maintenance and we usually have to do it on a weekly or daily basis, and many of you have probably asked yourself what is the best time to irrigate my plants during the day? The fact is that in the natural habitat of plants, ie mountains or forests, whenever Mother Nature was able, she would give them water and it could rain at any time of the day or night.
But now that your plants are indoors and you are responsible for watering them, the best time to water them is in the morning. The fact is that most plants like to be watered in the morning and before the sun rises and their water evaporates. The best time to spray moisture-loving plants, such as ferns and aerobic plants, is in the morning and evening, when sunlight does not shine directly on the leaves, as water droplets on the leaves act like magnifying glasses, and if sunlight shines directly on them, it can cause burns and stains. The leaves become. In the meantime, morning spraying will get the plants ready for the day ahead, but evening spraying will give them more moisture and your plants will be happier. Spraying in the evening is a great way to temporarily moisten plants that are kept in a dry climate. For example, in winter, when the heaters and heating appliances are on, the air in the house becomes too dry, and this may damage your moisture-loving plant.
So you can spray their leaves in the evening or turn on the cold incense burner. After water, light is one of the most important things a plant needs. Why is light important for plants? All living things in the world need water and food, and we can say that food for plants is the same as light. Plants use light in a process called photosynthesis. In this process, light energy is absorbed by chloroplasts, then different metabolic reactions occur, one of which is the production of sugar for the plant. Sugar is the fuel of the plant, so the more light the plant is exposed to, the more energy it produces and the faster it grows.
Remember these ratios: Quality = Color Amount = Intensity With these characteristics of light we can better understand how and why our plants behave. Quality Light quality is defined based on the color and type of light. In fact, light is energy that has different wavelengths and each of them has a different color.
Of course, the colors we see with our own eyes are not good for the plant, because plants see light differently from us. It is interesting to know that plants are seen in green, because they reflect green light, so they do not need green light.
In fact, plants need light that they can absorb and use, such as yellow, orange, red, blue, and purple, and invisible light, such as the sun's ultraviolet and infrared (infrared) rays. Amount of light means the intensity with which light shines on the leaves of a plant.
In fact, the more light photons that the plant emits, the more energy the plant absorbs and the faster it will grow. For example, the growth of begonias and oxalis depends exactly on the amount of light these plants receive during the day.
In fact, every plant that produces fruit and flowers is highly dependent on the light it receives. These plants work with raw materials such as water, carbon dioxide, sugar and nutrients, turning them into complex molecules such as flower pigments.
Of course, all of this happens when they get the amount of light they need.
Some plants, if they do not receive the amount of light they need, their self-control mechanism is activated, meaning they do not flower or bloom, but their flowers fall off halfway. It is interesting to note that the darkest part of the outdoor shade is still lighter than the brightest part of your indoor window.
Indoor and outdoor light shines in all directions, even in the shade, 360 degrees from the outside and 180 degrees from above, but when your plant is indoors, the light usually shines on the plant from a source, such as a window. And this makes the angle of light radiation very limited.
In fact, when we bring a plant from the open air into the house, we reduce the amount of activity of the plant cells. We have talked a lot about houseplants before, for example, low light and shade tolerant plants that are a good option for keeping in the apartment. The amount of light You may have heard phrases such as light-loving or low-light plants.
But what is the exact meaning of these words?
High light or full light means direct light where there is no obstruction between the light source such as the window and the plant. Only then will the plant receive the most light indoors. Aloe vera, succulents and palm trees are sun-loving plants. They can receive direct light for at least 6 hours a day. In general, you should allocate the brightest place in the house to these plants. Medium light Medium light and filtered light is light that has a barrier such as a net curtain between the plant and the light source, and the light is broken and scattered to the plant.
Ferns and plants such as agglomerates and monsters like this light. Because in the main habitat of Sha
In the forest, they also receive light in the form of scattered rays from under the trees. These plants can not tolerate direct and intense sunlight and prefer moderate light. Low light Low light means no direct light reaches your plant. The plant is probably too far from the light source or in a room with artificial light. Low light means low energy and food for the plant.
Some plants can tolerate low light and survive, but can not grow.
Remember that the angle of the sun's rays changes at different times of the day and seasons and affects the amount of light your plant receives. So be aware of this and monitor the location of your plant throughout the year.
Want to know how much light your plant gets at home? You can do this with a simple experiment. Hold a sheet of paper in front of a window in the middle of the day and hold your other hand between the light and the paper so that its shadow falls on the paper. If the shade is bold and well defined, sunlight will shine directly on your plant, and the fainter the shade, the more moderate the amount of light. Remember that light is like food for plants. Know the light needs of your plants and see how much light each one needs. Also, before choosing and buying a new plant, check the amount of light in your home to buy a plant that fits the lighting conditions of your home.
