Indoor Plants Are a Chore



Plants are a great way to add color, texture, and life to your home, but despite their seeming lack of a need for attention, they actually require care just like your pet pooch or kitten.


The signals that plants give us when they need attention are not as obvious as other living creatures such as pet dogs.


A dog will come over to you with its leash in its mouth when it wants to go for a walk, or just stand by the door and bark when it needs to go out and relieve itself, or pant when it is hot and thirsty, but a plant just sits there.


Where is this there that the plant just sits?


Perhaps it is in a dark corner where it gets very little sunlight, or in front of the window where it gets too much sunlight and heat.


Plants can be watered, but it is not always recognized that the home's air conditioning is pulling that same water right back out of the plant's soil.


The roots of a plant that is outside have the ability to expand limitlessly, while the indoor plants' roots are bound by their pot.


Plants can be replaced every few months as they dry out and turn brown and wilt or they can last for years if they are given the proper attention which includes proper placement within the house to get the amount of sunlight that they need, watering to prevent them from browning and wilting, feeding and fertilizing to allow them to grow strong, trimming, and sufficient pot sizing to let them spread their roots.


Yes, it can be a chore to keep indoor plants alive, but with the proper attention they can thrive.

It would be so much easier if we could train those plants to bark.

Plants can certainly liven up a house, when we can keep them alive.  When we bring plants into our homes we are taking them from their natural environments so we definitely need to give them our attention.

Good afternoon Ron. I think you are right and yet the beauty is worth the effort.

I've got several plants that have managed to survive for years in spite of my neglect. If they would just point to the faucet when they get thirsty.

And all plants are different...some like a lot of light, others don't need as much.
