Have you ever come home from vacation to find that your favorite plant is completely withered? If your answer is YES, in this article BesserMe gives you some valuable tips on how to take care of your plants during your vacation.
Get everything in shape
Invest some time in your herbs and plants before the vacation. Check all pots, remove wilted leaves and flowers, wipe off dust, and check to make sure they are not suffering from plant diseases. Check the leaves, stems and soil to make sure there are no insects that could harm the plants.
If you notice any illnesses, treat them before you leave home.
It is also important to keep the temperature as stable as possible while you are away. While you are on vacation, you should protect your plants from the effects of extreme temperatures. Just move them to a safe place where they have enough light but are still protected from too much sunlight and thus the unwanted heat.
Here you can find out which plants are suitable for the workplace.
The night before your departure, water all the plants well. It is best to “shower” them. This will wet both their leaves and the soil. It cleans them from dust and bugs that may be hiding in the leaves. Of course, you can’t do this technique with cacti or succulents. Each plant needs a different and special care.
If you are going away for more than a week, you should ask someone to water your plants.

Changes its place
If you have plants that require frequent turning and moving, move them to a completely new location before your trip. Group your plants in a corner of the home where they will not be exposed to direct sunlight.
If you have delicate plants that should be watered frequently, you can bring them into the bathroom to maintain humidity longer.
We hope these tips have helped you take care of your green pets before you leave home and go on vacation.
