Best Hirt's Gardens Indoor Plants in 2022


Hirt's Gardens Indoor Plants

If you want an indoor plant that will liven up your home, there are plenty of options to choose from at Hirt's Gardens. The Spider Plant is one such option. This plant is known for its air-purifying properties and can strip formaldehyde and toxins from your home. Its trailing stems make it a perfect plant for hanging baskets or even climbing objects.

Zamioculcas Zamiifolia

Despite the name, the Zamioculcas Zamiifolio plant is not a real plant. Its leaves are oval-shaped and glossy, and it has wand-like stems. It's easy to grow and doesn't require much care. However, it's best to avoid direct sunlight and very dark rooms. The Zamioculcas plant's most common error is overwatering. If you find it to have yellow leaves, it may be a sign that you are overwatering it.

This plant is an excellent choice for the office or home, as it is low maintenance and can be cared for by anyone, even the most novice plant parent. It also looks great and complements both traditional and contemporary styles. Despite its simple appearance, the Zamioculcas Zamiifolia offers a host of interesting features. Here are a few of the most impressive characteristics.

First, it is easy to care for the Zamioculcas Zamiifolio. The plant comes in a plastic box filled with styrofoam peanuts. It is already growing at a natural angle to the pot, so placing it near a bright window should help it straighten out. The plant requires little care and is very durable, and it can tolerate a range of temperatures.

After potting, it is best to aerate the soil thoroughly with a wooden chopstick before watering it. After that, water thoroughly, but be careful not to stab the rhizomes as they may bind. If the rhizomes are pressurized or root bound, repotting is needed. If this happens, it's a sign of stress.

Aloe

If you have a waterlogged aloe plant, it isn't too late to rescue it. Dig it up and let it dry for a day. Once it has dried out, remove any dead leaves and divide it. Younger plants may still have shallow roots and can be transplanted into new pots with fresh potting soil. Alternatively, you can transplant a whole plant.

While aloe does best in indirect light, southern and western exposures are ideal. Aloes need about seven to nine hours of sunlight a day, so make sure they have adequate light. Also, make sure they have good drainage. They do not need to be watered frequently, but only when the soil feels dry. Make sure to place them in indirect light, preferably a south-facing window.

The plant can be kept in a window box if the area where it grows is not too humid. A light and airy environment is ideal for aloe, and filtered light is the best. They will not bloom if placed in full sunlight, but will tolerate part-shade if you don't overwater them. However, it can take several years to bloom.

While aloes are relatively resistant to pests, they can still be infected with aphids, mealybugs, and scale insects. If you see an infected plant, remove it immediately, and check for damage daily. Several species of fusarium can cause basal stem rot, which can kill the plant. You can apply neem oil on the plant to prevent the disease from coming back.

Rubber plant

Care for a Rubber plant for Hirt's Gardens indoor plants should be taken to maintain it at its best. Generally, rubber plants are moderately tolerant of salty soil conditions, but too much can cause the foliage to burn. Using sterilized pruning tools is recommended. Once the top half of the soil has dried, prune the plant. Spider mites and mealybugs can damage or even kill a Rubber Plant. Mealybugs, which show up as cottony masses on the leaves or branches, are also harmful to the plant.

If you've kept your Rubber Plant in a pot that's too small for it, be sure to check the soil and water accordingly. Excessive watering will cause it to turn yellow. To prevent this problem, water only enough to make the soil dry on the top. If it's getting too dry, drain the excess water. If the leaves have hard water stains, use white vinegar to clean them safely.

For all Green Rubber Plants, bright indirect light is sufficient. Variegated varieties require bright indirect light. Shaded Rubber Plants will develop intensive root wrapping and may not produce the desired effect. A little sunlight can make a difference for the foliage color. Aside from limiting the amount of light that your Rubber Plant needs, you can also take care of its environment by using a good fertilizer.

Care for your Rubber plant should include regular watering. A thorough cleaning can help your plant photosynthesize better and deter insects. You can use dish soap mixed with warm water. You don't need to use a lot, just enough to clean the leaves. Don't use any leaf shine spray as these clog the pores in the leaves, which are essential for the plants to breathe.

Fiddleleaf Fig Tree

If you are planning to have a fiddleleaf fig tree indoors, you should know that it requires bright, filtered light. The fig doesn't like direct sunlight, which may burn the leaves. However, low light conditions will stunt the growth of this plant. Regardless of the light you choose, make sure it has enough room to breathe.

Moreover, the fiddle-leaf fig doesn't like sudden temperature changes. So, it is recommended to water it at least twice a month. Also, keep it away from air conditioning vents and drafty areas. These places may cause sudden temperature changes. So, a monthly flushing is necessary. If the soil is too dry, you should add water.

The fiddle leaf fig is known for its fun lollipop shape. Its trunk is long and slender and it has a rounded crown of branches. The leaves are lyre-shaped. However, you must take care of the fiddle-leaf fig by providing it with the proper amount of sunlight, water, and fertilizer.

The Fiddle-leaf fig is native to tropical rainforests in West Africa. These trees prefer warm, moist conditions and don't grow well in low-light conditions. The fiddle-leaf fig is a relatively easy houseplant and doesn't require special growing conditions. However, it will appreciate bright indirect light. Its leaves are large and can reach 45 cm in length.

Choosing the right potting mix is essential. It should be in a high-quality indoor plant potting mix. It needs a moderate amount of water, as too much or too little water may lead to root rot. In extreme cases, the plant can even die. If you decide to buy one of these plants, consider a few tips to keep it healthy.
