    Watering

    • Under or over watering houseplants are one of the main causes of the plants failing
    • Do not allow the plant to sit in water or sodden compost as this will stunt root growth and prevent air movement around the roots
    • It can also make the plant more susceptible to pests and diseases
    • Overwatering can cause leaf yellowing and loss, and a shortened flowering period.
    • Equally do not allow the compost to dry out completely as this can also cause damage to the plant
    • Regularly checking the compost to see if it is still moist in the summer months (less frequently in the cooler months) is the best way to ensure proper watering
    • Knowing when to water your houseplants can be difficult. Westland Watering Indicator sticks are a useful way of knowing when the compost in your plant pot has dried out. The easy to use sticks change colour from blue to red when the plant needs re-watering
