Ventilate without drafts
Our green pets are only for us - indoor, nature has created them for life in the open. And our comfortable conditions do not always suit them: there are no problems with one temperature. As it usually happens: in the autumn we will clog all the windows, there is no fresh air, the apartment heats up, and then we let it air! And then we are surprised - why did our Decembrist drop the buds without ever blooming? Yes, and I myself was always sure that airing is good for flowers, fresh air, after all. Until I lost because of this, several pets at home.
But the thing is this. When the temperature in the street does not differ from room temperature, there is nothing to be afraid of. But a difference of 3-4 degrees is enough, and then (add gusts of wind here) the plants will freeze. Therefore, I advise from my experience to pay attention to this:
- do not place plants in a straight line between the door and the window;
- do not put them near the front door - there are frequent streams of cold air;
- if your plants are standing on window sills, carefully dig all the cracks;
- when you open the windows, letting in fresh air, keep the doors tightly closed.
Regular moderate airing protects plants from fungal diseases and helps strengthen immunity.
It is easier, of course, to transfer all the flowers to another room during ventilation. But if this is not possible, stretch the rope across the window frame between the window leaf and the tops of the plants and hang a newspaper sheet on this rope during ventilation, it will cover the flowers from jets of cold air.
