The right pots for your plants
Plants live best in the right pot. Select a pot that fits your plants. When choosing a pot, make sure to consider its size, material and drainage capability. Use a pot that’s proportional to your plant’s current size. Once the plants outgrows its home, you can transfer it into a larger pot.

Feed with nutrients

Most plants only need to be watered once or twice a week, or you can mist them three times a day to keep them humid.
