The latest in plant care tips for keeping your foliage happy and healthy, brought to you by premium plant delivery service Léon & George.
Ready to level up your watering technique? Loosen up your plant's soil before watering to allow even distribution of oxygen and water around the roots.
Step 1: Find a chopstick
Step 2: Gently poke a few holes through the top of the soil (you may strike a root or two, don't worry)
Step 3: Give your plant a thorough watering around the base towards the center, allow all the water to drain through the bottom of the nursery pot
If your plants are staged in a decorative pot, empty out any excess water from the bottom and fluff up any soil toppings like moss or rocks.
Within a few hours, you should notice a more refreshed look on your foilage.
Houseplant whisperer Derryl Cheng of @houseplantjournal prescribes doing this approximately every other watering.
