Here are some tips on taking care of plants:
Most plants require water two times a week. Some, however require more or less water in a week. Plants require nutrients in the soil to grow, in order to make nutrients put dead leaves, wood and sticks in dirt and add water to the dead leaves every other day. After a week of watering, remove the soil put and it to use! After putting it in a pot (or whatever you want to use).
Put seeds in the soil and water it twice a week or more. If a seedling grows water it twice a week. When the plant gets big enough learn its watering schedule.
Here’s how to learn a plants watering schedule:
When the plant gets big enough, water it then leave it alone until the leaves droop. Then mark the day you watered (ONLY if you watered it the day the leaves droop) it in your phone’s alarm (you can do it a different way) and do the same for the next time the leaves droop. Water can take a bit of time to perk back up the leaves.
WARNING: IF PLANT'S LEAVES CONTINUE TO DROOP PUT FERTILIZER IN SOIL, IF DROOPING CONTINUES PUT PLANT IN A BIGGER POT!
Things Plants Require:
When you are new to growing plants, start with succulents (succulents are plants that store water in their leaves)
Did you know that sunflower seeds can made into oil?
Did you know that a whole succulent plant can grow from one leaf?
Did you know that some sunflowers are multi-headed?
Did you know that sweet potatoes are in the morning glory family?
Did you know the store bought onions bottoms can be cut off and put in water and grow back in a thicker fresher form?
