Purchase Tips For Plants

A few tips on how to choose a healthy plant when buying.

  1. Choose those plants that adapt more to the conditions that they will have in your house or garden.
  2. It is advisable to go to specialized establishments (nurseries, florists) before other more general ones because, in addition to having lower prices, in the latter, the employees are not usually very prepared.
  3. The labels help a lot, and if the plant is poisonous, it should indicate it.
  4. Do not buy plants that have withered, yellowed leaves with dry edges or holes.
  5. Look closely at the beam and the underside to verify that there are no spots, symptoms of fungal diseases. There is also the danger of introducing pests or diseases into our home, with the risk of contagion to other plants.
  6. Avoid plants whose stems are very lanky and quite bare leaves.
  7. The plant must be provided. The aerial part must be compensated with the size of the pot.
  8. The roots should be abundant, light in color (indicating good health and growth). Discard any plant with very dark roots or bleaches, a sign of rot usually by waterlogging.
  9. Buy small, compact plants with new shoots, which in addition to being cheaper, adapt better than large specimens that have long been in nurseries.
  10. Choose plants that have many buds to open instead of many flowers already open.
  11. Do not choose the plants whose roots appear through the drainage hole of the sherds or that appear on the surface of the earth, symptoms that the plant has been in the same pot for a long time.
  12. Do not be afraid to lift the bushes and other plants by taking them by the stem and taking them out of their container to check that the root ball remains intact and does not crumble. Roots that strip off the ground are a sign that the plant is newly transplanted and may have problems with roots.
  13. If it is dry, with green, mold on the surface, or weeds, it is better to take another.
  14. As for transport home, the cold can affect the most sensitive. Not surprisingly, most of the indoor plants are of tropical origin.
