Do Plants Need All-Day Sun?

Myth 1:
Every plant flourishes when exposed to intense sunlight throughout the entire day.

Reality: Nope! While sunlight is crucial, too much can be harmful. Most plants prefer a balance of sun and shade. Think of it like Goldilocks – not too much, not too little, just right!

Can My Plants Survive Without Fertilizers?

Myth 2: Plants can survive solely on water and love.

Reality: While love is essential, plants also need nutrients to thrive. Fertilizers provide those nutrients, but don't overdo it! Too much of a good thing can lead to nutrient overload. Click here to get your ideal fertilizer for your baby plants.

How Much Water is Too Much or Too Little?

Myth 3: Watering plants is just a guessing game.

Reality: Finding the right balance is key! Excess water can drown roots, while too little leaves plants thirsty. Check the soil by inserting your finger – if it's dry, go ahead and water; if it's wet, hold off for now.

Can I Compost My Veggie Scraps?

Myth 4: Veggie scraps belong in the trash, not the garden.

Reality: Think again! Your kitchen waste is a treasure trove for plants. Composting turns scraps into nutrient-rich gold for your garden. So, recycle those banana peels and carrot tops!

Indoor Plants Don't Need Sunlight

Myth 5: Indoor plants are like vampires – they thrive in the dark.

Reality: Wrong! Just like us, plants need sunlight to thrive. Place them near a sunny window or invest in some grow lights to keep them happy and healthy. Here are some cute planters that you might to add to your corners.
