Where to buy?

If you have a livelihood nearby, we recommend you buy it there (before in the big stores). Many times the large home stores tend to spray a lot of pesticides and are not entirely taken care of. Also in the nurseries (generally) you will find only the plants that grow in the place and the people who work there know more about the subject.MTM1OTM0NDg3MzYzMDk5MTAy

Choosing a planter

When it comes to choosing planters, size matters! If we put our plant in a pot that is too small, it will dry faster and quickly fill with roots (leaving the plant without room to grow). On the other hand, if our pot is very large we will need more soil and water to maintain it, which can cause the root of the plant to rot. To find the perfect pot, make sure it has a diameter one or two centimeters larger than the pot in which the plant originally came.

Make sure the planter you choose has holes in the bottom. This will cause the water to drain out which will avoid drowning the root of the plant. Generally the pots come with a plate so that the water does not dirty the soil … if you do not have it, we recommend you put something under the pot.MTM1OTM0NDU5MTc3Mzc0OTk0
