Environmental problems of herbal apartment
House Plant

Plants suffering physiological changes to adapt to climate change.

This is the time when plants suffer transported inside a time of stress. This exchange of environmental condition than growth, flowering, fruit production and in worst cases, can cause plant wilting.

Indoor plants are mostly of tropical origin and requires high temperatures and stable at a high level of humidity. Errors that should be avoided plants are positioned close to heat sources (radiators), which give an air too dry, put them on air currents (near the doors and windows), to delay when entering the apartment because they would suffer because of too low temperatures during the night.

Plants in the window positioning should be avoided because it can create glass lens effect of sunlight, which will burn the leaves. Or plants thrive because they have not received enough light is available in less illuminated areas.

Sprinkling the plants must be done regularly but not excessively so as not to create situations of stagnant water, followed by root rot. It is important to use low-water limestone and chlorine in order not to create excess salt in the land that would destroy the roots.

If fertilizers are not regular and neadacvate type of plant they first show symptoms of pain (yellow leaves, flowers falling ahead of time).
