How to care for your plants, tips and tricks!

Many of you tell me "how do I not kill my plants"?

To answer you, I will give you some simple tips to follow!

First, what would be very useful is when you buy your plants,

  • ask the name
  • maintenance (brightness, watering, etc.)

Then, buy only plants that suit your environment.

I made a video that explains everything that will follow right here !


Do it at the right time

-It must be done when the roots are made stuck. It is a false belief to think that by giving her a big pot, she will grow faster.

-Repotting should always take place in the spring when the plants wake up from hibernation.

-Choose the right pot: The general rule is to repot in a container two inches larger than its previous one every two years.

- Prefer a pot with a hole in the bottom to avoid water accumulation. Overwatering is the number one killer of your precious plants.


Don't use black soil, even if it's really inexpensive, it will kill your plants. It is a soil very poor in minerals, which is essential for your plants. Don't be fooled by the marketing, no need to get the most expensive one, just mineral-rich soil that will keep your plants alive.

· Potting soil for cacti, enriched with sand, garden soil is not enough. Only water your cactus if the soil is dry.


Use rainwater

Touch the soil before watering

· Spray rainwater to fill the lack of humidity (be careful with succulents)

Tips and tricks

place in the house

In the house, place the cacti behind a window so that they benefit from the best light.

Low light



Adiantum fragrans

mountain palm

Cyperus with alternate leaves

· Fucus pumila also called creeping fig tree


Maranta leuconeura

Sword Fern


· Moon flower

Good brightness

Tradescentia zebrina

direct sun


· Basil

Venus flytrap – Dionaea

The Agave




Generally speaking, a relative humidity of 40 to 60% is suitable for the majority of indoor plants.

Regarding the use of the potting kit , I advise you to watch the video .
