Caring for Sydney Indoor Plants

Indoor plants have many benefits to people, and capitalizing on these through indoor plant hire can be a major improvement to your home or office. Having plants has been proven to have a positive impact on health and mood. The benefits of Sydney indoor plants include fighting mold, removing pollutants called volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the air, adding mentally refreshing fragrances, and dampening noise pollution. There are many options for Sydney indoor plants as the climate can support many species. Some have minimal maintenance requirements, but there are still some important considerations for all indoor plant hire to sustain quality plants:

Watering:

Indoor plants should be watered when they are dry, not in a regular routine. Check the soil moisture by placing a finger about 5cm deep into the soil. Only water when the soil is dry or you risk drowning the plant. To water, pour directly onto soil (not the leaves) until water leaves the bottom of the pot, after some time, remove the excess water from the saucer or base.

Plants also like having moisture in the air, for Sydney indoor plants, keeping their leaves moist with a spray bottle is needed in the less humid times of the year, especially around August and September.

Position:

It is important to ensure that the plant is in the right position for its type. Most indoor plants do not like being exposed to direct sunlight and some low light plants need complete shade to thrive. The majority of indoor plant hire plants prefer partial shade with ample ambient light. The position of a plant may also need to be adjusted seasonally as the location of the sun changes.

When using indoor plant hire services, most of the major plant maintenance tasks such as pruning, repotting and replacement will not need to be done. However, small maintenance tasks will allow Sydney indoor plants to thrive. For more information, contact Lease-a-Leaf today!
