Today, many people have switched to indoor planting to keep themselves surrounded by greenery all day long. Some people choose to grow plants on the balcony or terrace of their home to stay close to nature. When planting indoor plants, special precautions should be taken to ensure that their growth is not stunted. Before planting them, you need to find the right location in the house that will encourage the growth of the plant. In addition, you should also properly prepare the soil when planting houseplants to avoid obstacles in their growth. So here are some simple tips for preparing the best soil for your houseplants:
1. Take fertile soil: For planting houseplants, you need to get fertile soil from your nearby yard or buy it from a nearby nursery. Loamy soil is considered the best for indoor planting.
2. Check the bottom: Make sure the soil you are going to use for your houseplants is free of germs. Otherwise it will affect the growth of your plant. You should also make sure that the soil you use for your houseplants is neither too wet nor too dry.
3. Use Cocopeat soil: If you are considering planting a houseplant on the balcony or in the kitchen of your home, choose coconut soil. It is prepared from dry coconut fiber and fine compost. It absorbs water in just a few minutes and retains moisture in the soil for a long time. Coconut soil is easily available in the market.
4. Mix the soil well: Take a vessel with a small hole in it so that there is enough space for water to drain as it only needs water from that vessel, no soil. Mix soil, coconut and compost in this vessel well so that all ingredients become one with the soil. Now fill the prepared soil in the pots that you will use for planting houseplants.
