Flower Guides

Most flowers requires the same type of care, including lots of sun, low watering and well-draining soil. Look over the details below for information on growing flowers indoors or planting outside.

Growing Indoors

Growing flower indoors has quite a few different requirements. Since you will be using a pot instead of ground soil, having the correct pot size is extremely important for your plant’s health. Flower should be planted in a pot that is only one to two inches larger than the plant’s root ball. In a larger pot, there is too much soil and the roots won’t be able to absorb the necessary water.  Since flower loves the sun, placing the plant near a window is essential. Water the flower one inch deep and only when the soil is dry to the touch.

Planting Outdoors

In warmer areas like Uganda, flower should be planted in early fall in order for the roots of the plant to get comfortable during the cool and moist season. Outside, flower grows best in low to moderate fertility soils, so it’s advised to skip spreading organic matter over the soil before planting. The plant is more likely to mature fully in soils that are neutral to slightly alkaline. Squeezing lime juice over the soil to reach a pH of around 7.0 helps with this.

When ready to plant, dig a hole that’s twice as deep and wide as the flower plant. Lightly spread the roots if they seem to be squished. Place your flower plant in the soil and align it with the top of the soil. Water the new flower plant only if the rest of the soil seems to be dry.
