we are taiking about the basic recquirment of feeding and caring about plants.mainly we are providing the knowlege how to care and feed your plants

  1. Don't water once, water twice. Use the "double splash" technique: water the plants gently and th oroughly, then top them off with another light watering.
  2. First off, tap water is just fine. In fact, many experts say it's better than distilled, because of the helpful extra nutrients dissolved in plain old water from the sink. But some tap water is harder than others. Hard water can create deposits on the soil or rims of pots. This is not harmful, but may be unsightly. If this happens, remove the crusty white soil and add fresh potting mix, from time to time.
  3. If you have water that has been softened by adding sodium ions, this will present a problem. Water temperature is another concern. Cold water, right out of the tap, can shock your plants. Don't stress them by pouring cold water all over their roots.
  4. Chlorine is not so good for plants either. In most places, our water supplies have a small amount of this chemical added to kill off pathogenic microbes.
  5. If you let tap water sit overnight, as suggested above, the chlorine will evaporate, and you can safely water your plants. Letting your water sit out, this is called aging the water.
  6. Most plants need less water in the winter, during their resting season. It's better to err on the side of too dry, than too wet at this time. When plants are actively growing - in the spring and summer - they will need their regular, book-recommended amountswater the soil. Applying water to the leaves might help increase the humidity, but it does not bring the water to where plants need it the most - on the roots. Watering the foliage is just a waste of your effort

  8. These are the substances of fertilizer. As long as you know the needs of your plant, you can easily determine which type(s) of fertilizer will be the best match. Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium
  9. Carbon Dioxide & Water - These are nutritional elements for plants. Combined with sunlight
  10. Nitrogen - It is responsible for the green color of the leaves and the amount of new growth each spring. It affects the length of the internodes and leaf size. Nitrogen is needed for cell division and the manufacture of proteins. Phophorus - Responsible for good root growth and flowering. Potassium - Activates certain cell enzymes and is associated with healthy cell activity. A deficiency can lead to a chlorosis of the leaf margin.
  11. Begin fertilizing in the Spring right after new leaves begin to harden off. Continue feeding the plants until Fall or early Winter. Avoid applying plant food to any sick, recovering or newly transplanted plant . Use Many fertilizers, especially the liquid forms such as Miracid, Miracle Gro, Peters, etc., will list a concentration for a particular feeding period. Just follow the instruction but apply only half of the recommended strength. Do not over feed. The more frequently you wish to feed your plants the less concentration the solution should be. Normally, it is not recommended to feed more than once in two weeks.
  12. Good gardening tools are a must for good results in the garden! Here are some basic tips to keep in mind when buying your tools:
  13. Comfortable gardening clogs are a must for the garden; their waterproof surface allows you to work even in wet areas while keeping your feet nice and dry. Pruners: Don't go cheap -- it's worth investing in a well-made, durable pair that will hold up over time.
