If your plants are dry, water them,Soil parameter sensor helps you

Good watering starts with knowing your plants’ watering needs. You can tell if a plant needs watering in a number of ways. If the soil is dry, feel the top few inches of soil and water first. You can also lift a potted plant — if it’s light, it’s dry; if it’s light, it’s dry; if it’s heavy, the soil is still moist. Condition-specific monitoring can be performed using soil tester equipment.You can use JXCT self-developed Soil parameter sensor helps you to monitor, you can know the growth of plants in real time.

Wilted plants may also indicate a lack of water. However, if the plant wilts and the soil is soggy, the plant may lose roots (or “root rot”) from persistently soggy soil. Wet soil lacks air and the roots need oxygen to grow well.

Not all plants can be watered from the top. Plants with hairy leaves or soilless mixes can be watered from the bottom. Place plants in pots in plastic containers and fill with water until holes are covered. The soil will soak up and absorb water within a few hours, saturating the potting medium.

Soil parameter sensor

Soil parameter sensor (Soil parameter quick measuring instrument) has high precision. Soil sensor can monitor soil temperature and humidity,pH value, nitrogen,phosphorus, potassium and electrical conductivity.It is simple and convenient, with low cost and fast measurement speed.Soil sensor is suitable for farmland production, soil research, greenhouse planting, orchard nursery, all kinds of horticultural soil testing, support parameter free customization, multi in one soil sensor customization.

Good drainage is everything

Tall plant with paddle-shaped dark green leaves and irregular clusters of white and dark pink flowers.
As houseplants, we grow Phalaenopsis (Phalaenopsis) in bark that provides moisture and plenty of air to the roots.
Indoor plants should be planted in a well-draining growing medium, such as high-quality potting soil (not garden soil) or fir bark for some orchids and other epiphytes.

If your plant is growing in a pot with good drainage, it can tolerate some neglect. But pots in pots with poor or no drainage are doomed. A well-draining pot has at least one large drainage hole in the bottom; some may have several holes.

If your plant is double potted (one regular nursery pot in a second decorative pot), remove the plant from the decorative pot and place it in a sink for watering. Let it drain completely, then place it back in the decorative pot.

Do not put stones or pottery shards in the bottom of the pot. They take up valuable root growth space.

The water quality is different

What’s in your water can affect the health of your houseplants. Municipal water may be treated with fluoride and other additives that can negatively affect some plants, such as orchids and peace lilies. Chlorine is a micronutrient needed by plants, and most drinking water contains less than levels that are toxic to plants. Chlorine also dissipates when exposed to air. If you have municipal water, consider conserving stormwater or purchasing filtered water for watering sensitive plants.

Hard water can lead to a buildup of minerals on the soil surface. Avoid this by using water low in minerals and flushing the plant soil with pure water every 4 to 6 months. Replant the plants if the soil hardens and scrub the pots to remove mineral buildup.

Fertilize while the plant is actively growing

A plant’s growing environment — light, humidity, temperature — changes when it’s brought indoors over the winter. Plants need to adapt to their new indoor environment. This can cause some plants to lose their leaves and buds, or temporarily stop growing.

Do not add fertilizer to your water until you see the plants developing new leaves, roots, shoots and stems. When you fertilize, use an all-purpose fertilizer for most plants.

Fertilizers are made from salt. Mix water at half the recommended strength every 2-3 waterings to avoid excessive salt build-up in plant soil and leaf tips.
