We were all taught the basics that all a plant needs to stay alive is sunlight and water, but there’s so much more. Nutrients like potassium, nitrogen and Vitamin B aren’t only for humans! Before we were around, they feasted on nutrients to put out new leaves or flowers to attract pollinators to grow taller and reach more sunlight.
The photosynthesis process we all know and appreciate needs so much more, and we, as growers, are responsible for providing our plants with everything they need to perform this process.
So, how do you provide all these things for your plants every day? Well, it will call for some hard work and dedication, but it’s possible when you follow the advice we’ve put together for you here.
Considering all that goes into nurturing plants, you need as much help as you can get! Gardening tools like watering cans, trowels, and gloves are one part of the equation, but there’s more to this than meets the eye.
Everyone doesn’t still know what plants need to grow? That’s why we’ve created these guides explaining the scientific reasons why plants need sunlight (natural or artificial), water, nutrients, and many other things to survive! When it comes to gardening, it can never hurt to know more about what’s going on in the leaves and under the soil of your favorite plants.
