How to Use
Don’t forget to pot top! Adding Hydroleca as a pot topper will provide a decorative appearance, help to minimise over watering and discourage attraction of pests.
- Westland Houseplant Potting Mix contains sufficient nutrients to feed plants for approx. 6 weeks
- After this period, feeding should commence with Westland Houseplant Feed.
- Feed every second watering in the active growing season (spring/summer) and every fourth watering in the winter
- Under or over watering houseplants are one of the main causes of the plants failing
- Do not allow the plant to sit in water or sodden compost as this will stunt root growth and prevent air movement around the roots
- It can also make the plant more susceptible to pests and diseases
- Overwatering can cause leaf yellowing and loss, and a shortened flowering period.
- Equally do not allow the compost to dry out completely as this can also cause damage to the plant
- Regularly checking the compost to see if it is still moist in the summer months (less frequently in the cooler months) is the best way to ensure proper watering
- Knowing when to water your houseplants can be difficult. Westland Watering Indicator sticks are a useful way of knowing when the compost in your plant pot has dried out. The easy to use sticks change colour from blue to red when the plant needs re-watering
