Dried flowers don’t like water, unlike their fresh friends! Keep them warm, dry & away from any damp conditions, as this will make them mouldy. Keep a check on your vase as sometimes it can capture moisture & humidity – which the stems won’t like.
Dried flowers will fade, but to slow this process down, keep them away from direct sunlight. They are best suited to a place with very little movement, to avoid them getting knocked, caught by our furry friends or touched by little hands. We don’t want them ending up in mouths as they are not edible!
Your How to Care for Me card will say how best to water your new house plant. Here are some extra tips::
This doesn't mean soaking wet! Keep the soil damp by misting with a spray bottle or watering more frequently.
Don't overwater this plant: It could lead to root rot and kill your plant.
Allow to dry out between waterings
Make sure this plant has completely dried out in between waterings. Check by sticking your finger at least a cm under the soil to see if it's still damp.
Unfortunately, all plants attract bugs and mites! There are very effective bug sprays you can buy from garden centres or search for free online tips.
If your houseplants have ANY kind of infestation - Be sure to quarantine it away from other plants straight away. If either your house plant or garden plant has a pesky pest infection, check online for bug type and try their solutions.
You could try spraying your plants with:
Water and a little dishwashing soap
Water and a little vinegar
