Plants provide several benefits in indoor spaces. They however require care and maintenance services regularly to grow healthy and vibrant. Employees in offices are always busy and caring for and maintaining several office indoor plants can be challenging. Office workers should also learn how to take care and maintained or hire specialists. . At PLANTZ we offer services and training to office occupants allowing them to learn what services are included in our plant care maintenance.
The following are some of the things that should be done in routines to ensure proper office plant care and maintenance.
- Repotting of Plants
After purchasing the suitable type of plants to put inside the company’s offices, the plants must be re-potted into different planters to give them enough room for growth. Plant roots need to be confined to quickly flourish and grow. Most office indoor plants start to grow and produce leaves and flowers if left to grow in the smaller pots. Immediate repotting of plants has negative effects on their health and growth. The plants start to drown due to over flooding of the pot they have been transferred into. It is important to know when to transfer a plant to a different planter while maintaining its health. Late repotting of plants can also harm them.
- Yellowing of Plants Leaves
Most people think that the yellowing of indoor plant leaves is a sign that they are dying. This is an indicator that the amount of sunlight the plant gets exposed to is inadequate or extreme. Yellowing does not mean the plant will no longer survive. People normally throw out plants when they yellow not knowing they can still thrive. To solve this problem, the plant needs to be watered following a different schedule, change the amount of water administered to the plant and adjust the lighting in the room.
- Food and Fertilizer Requirement
Most people believe that sick plants require food and fertilizer. Plants however need food and fertilizer to enable them to grow stronger and bigger. Sick plants are treated by changing the room lighting, watering schedule, or a factor in the environment such as humidity and temperature.
- Amount of Water used for Watering.
Many people overwater or underwater plants because they are not informed about the water needs for the plant. Others do not read and follow the instructions that are attached to the plant when purchased. Watering plants the wrong way can lead to plant stress. To know whether the plants should be watered or not, touch the soil and feel if it is wet or dry. The type of plant also determined its water requirements.
- Flowering Plants Care
Flowering plants require attention and optimum environmental setting especially the temperature and humidity of the office space. Plants should not end up in the wrong spaces just because of their aesthetics.
Indoor office plants create an appealing and relaxing environment that provide workers with a sense of healthiness. Other than just being beneficial in indoor spaces, they have an impact on workers’ productivity and concentration among other psychological benefits. For this reason, office occupants should keep plants, know how to take care of them, and ensure they stay healthy.
