Dish Garden Care
Hydration: Check the soil of your dish garden daily. If the soil is dry below the surface, the garden should be lightly watered. Keep in mind that plants generally require less frequent watering during the winter months. Plants that are in pots which are porous or have drainage holes require more frequent watering than plants that are in pots without adequate drainage. Do not overwater. This can lead to root rot which will destroy the plant. Again, feel the soil regularly. Most plants like the soil to be evenly moist, but not soggy. It's also a good idea to rotate your plants ¼ turn when watering to assure even growth. Grouping plants can help them to retain moisture when you are away for a few days. Plants that thrive in high moisture conditions can benefit from regular misting, a humidifier or occasional placement near the shower.
Plant Placement: Most plants require at least medium to bright light. Avoid drafty locations. Keep the plants away from doors and open windows during the cooler months. Keep plants away from air conditioning and heat ducts.
Fertilizer/Food: Plants require some, but very little fertilizer and any choice in plant food will keep your plants healthy. Generally you should cut back on fertilizer/food during the plants' dormant period, which is usually during the winter months.
Pests: Keep an eye out for infestations. Many pests are very tiny, so look for damaged leaves, fine white webs, spotting or anything out of the ordinary. Pesticides are available at most garden centers. A quick solution is to wash the leaves with warm, soapy water and rinse.
