7 essentials for growing stunning plants

Plants are wonderful. They enliven and complete our spaces while also purifying the air. However, in order for your plants to stay healthy and continue to thrive long after you bring them home, it's important to take good care of them. 
In this article, you'll learn 7 things you need to know so that your plants flourish and bring you lasting joy.

#1 Know the exact name of your plants

Every plant requires a unique approach. What works well for one may harm another. But sometimes you may not know the name of a particular plant: whether it's a gift or a sprout you've taken from a friend to propagate. 
Now, you don't have to spend hours scouring the internet and carefully describing the plant's characteristics to figure out its name. With our Plant Identifier, you can easily discover the exact name of your green companion in just a few seconds!

#2 Explore care tips

After identifying your plant, it's important to study the care tips so you know how to properly care for it. You can find all the necessary information in the Plant's Profile section, including details on watering, fertilizing, lighting, temperature, and humidity requirements. You'll also discover many interesting facts about the plant that may pique your interest.

#3 Find the perfect spot for your plants

Light is crucial for plant life as it facilitates the process of converting carbon dioxide and water into organic matter and releasing oxygen. It also helps to protect against diseases and pests. Without proper light conditions, all the effort invested in your plants will be in vain. That's why it's essential to create or find the ideal light conditions for your plants.

However, it's a common misconception that the more light, the better it is for the plants. In reality, every plant has unique requirements and needs different light conditions. To ensure that you are providing the perfect light environment for your plants, use our Light Meter feature.

#4 Provide your plants with enough water 

Water is as crucial for plants as light. To ensure your plants' survival, never break their watering regime, especially since some plants may suffer harm from just a single missed watering session. It's important to provide your plants with the right amount of water - not too much, not too little. 
To calculate the exact volume of water your plants need, you can use our handy Watering Calculator. With the data from this tool, your plant will receive the precise amount of water it requires.

#5 Do not skip plant care time

Make sure you don't forget to take care of your plants by setting up Care Tasks. With reminders for watering, fertilizing, rotating, and misting, you can rest assured that you'll attend to your plants at the right time. It's incredibly convenient and frees up space in your mind for other things - just go about your day and let Care Tasks handle the rest!

#6 Treat your plants for diseases and pests in time

Sometimes, despite our best efforts to provide proper and timely care, our plants may begin to feel unwell and gradually die. If you're not sure what's wrong, the answer is simple: your plant may be suffering from a disease or pest infestation. 

But don't worry, with timely treatment, everything can be fixed. And to get to know your enemy up close, you can use the Plant Doctor feature. Not only will it accurately diagnose what's wrong with your plant, but it will also provide a treatment plan. The most important thing is to act quickly!

#7 Consider individual conditions and characteristics

As we have noted, each plant is unique and has its own set of requirements. Sometimes, you may have specific questions related to your particular plant. But who do you turn to for advice? The solution is simple - ask your personal AI-Assistant
