One very important thing to remember when we get new plants home from Urvann is that the plant has moved to a completely new home- hence it is very important to take care of the plant well and not put it into shock by repotting it or feeding it fertilzers. We have to let the plant adjust to our home, before repotting or fertilization.
Things you should do immediately
- Water the plants well till water starts coming out from bottom of the pot or the bag they have come in;
- Keep the plants in semi - shade area. This true for outdoor or indoor or flowering plants.
- If it is a flowering plant, it is recommended to cut all its flowers, as we want the plant to use its energy in adjusting to new area than in flowering. This is especially true for delicate plants like seasonal flowers.
Things you should not worry about
- If all the leaves of the plant are drooping - this happens due to transit shock and happens even when plants have been in transit for an hour.
Care of plants
- Keep the plants in semi - shade for 2-3 days .
- Water the plants whenever soil feel dries. Since plants are in semi-shade, they will consume lesser water, so be sure to not overwater them.
- After 2-3 days, when you feel the plant has adjusted to the new home, it is time to start moving it gradually to sunlight or to the area where you want to keep it.
