Hope everyone is safe and doing well after little Nemo’s visit . I know I made a few rearrangements around the apartment to save my plants, seeing as the temperature has gone down. So if anyone didn’t know, any sudden change from a single degree in temperature can kill a seedling or already bloomed flower.
It’s important when growing flowers of any kind to keep a close eye on the temperatures that they are used to growing in. Should the degrees drop extremely low and unnoticed, don’t move the flowers to a warmer area, or else they are likely to wilt and die. This is no good, especially if you take the time and effort to grow your beauties like I do. I wouldn’t want all the hard work and effort to just up and die because of my carelessness or just because I wasn’t well-educated in temperature range my flowers can bloom in.
As of now I have two bamboo plants which are pretty strong plants and can survive in some harsh conditions. Bamboo can even be planted outside in winter if fully grown. They have a stronger tolerance to the cold than say a stargazer. Stargazers can only live in low temperatures when still in bulb form. 35 to 36 degrees right on the dot. The last flower I am keeping alive, which is a challenge, is a little mini rose pot plant. These babies are extremely delicate – 60-75°F is the most comfortable temperature for these beauties. I’ll admit the leaves have fallen from them, but they haven’t died completely during cold months. This bush will actually go to sleep and save the roses from the cold. Just make sure these roses are really well watered and do not go dry – that will kill them.
So everyone I know I ranted a bit, and I just wanted to share some tips if you have inside plants this winter take care of them too. Seedlings need nurturing as much as humans do from this nasty cold weather.
Keep growing loves <3
