Things to note when potting your new plant.

  • Remove your new plant from its packaging by the pot instead of the stem. 
  • Consider waiting 24 hours to plant so it can recoup after its journey.
  • Pick out the perfect home for your new plant based on its sun requirements.
  • Consider your plant’s mature size to determine spacing.
  • Prepare healthy soil for planting.
  • Dig a hole the size of the pot; the pot should be able to fit in the hole. 
  • Gently remove your plant from the pot. 
  • Place your plant in the hole and fill the soil back in around it.
  • Water your plant again to help it adjust.
  • Go ahead and mulch if needed. 
  • After planting, water your plant weekly for the first season. In hotter climates, water daily for the first two weeks based on your plant’s requirements. 
  • Refer to your plant’s detail page for specialized care instructions.

Things to note when potting your new plant.

The journey home.

Have you ever taken a road trip and afterwards felt like you had just run a marathon? Well, you and your new plant have that in common, but don’t worry. With a little TLC, or WSC (water, sunshine and care), they’ll be back to their normal, perky self in no time. 

 

If your plant isn’t looking perfect within a few days, let us know, and we’ll work with you to make sure you and your plants are happy! 

Water me, please.

Upon arrival, your plant will need a drink or two! Let those babies soak up some well-deserved H2O and drain while you pick the perfect home for your new plant. 

 

When watering plants, there are a few practices that will help ensure their health:

 

  • Water consistently
  • Adjust to seasonal changes
  • Refer to your plant’s detail page for their special watering instructions

 

Plants have unique water needs, but no matter the plant, it’s essential to maintain a watering schedule. The best time to water plants for beautiful blooms is at the same times and in the same amounts. 

Basking in the sun. 

This is the make it or break it area of your plant’s life. That’s because 

 

sun = energy.

 

Getting the right amount of sunlight guarantees beautiful blooms. The amount of sun that your plant loves depends on the type of plant, so please refer to your plant delivery detail page for specific directions. 

 

  • Full Sun: At least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day
  • Partial Sun: Between 3 and 6 hours of direct sunlight each day
  • Full Shade: Less than 3 hours of direct sunlight each day

Hungry? Your plant might be too. 

Plant needs are beginning to sound very similar to our own. Just like us, plants need food. In their case, it’s fertilizer. You don’t have to fertilize daily, but doing so every 3-4 weeks will help your plant to live a long, healthy life.  

 

Rich, healthy soil will go a long way in helping your plant as well. If your location lacks rich soil, we suggest adding garden soil to the mix. 

Ground vs container gardening.

It’s up to you whether you prefer to keep your plant in a container or plant it in the ground, but it will respond differently to each.

 

In the ground, your plant has more space to stretch and grow. If nutrition or water is lacking in the area, they can stretch their little roots to find it elsewhere. 

 

Container plants can thrive, but they will require a little more attention. Depending on the size of the container, there is only so much room for soil, water and growth, so your plant may not reach its full size.
