Watering
 

When it comes to watering it is as important as lighting. Water helps the transport of nutrients and minerals from the soil to the plants. It is best to water your plants first thing in the morning, while its still cool. It will allow the water to run into the soil and reach the roots of the plant without too much excess water lost to evaporation.

Lighting
 
Positioning your plant in the right lighting is imperative. Light is the essential ingredient for great plant growth. Check your plant label for the best positioning of your plant

Mineral Nutrients

Green plants must absorb certain minerals through their roots to survive. In the garden these minerals are supplied by the soil, but to help you can add manure, compost and fertiliser.
