Apr according to a Plant doctor Barry Schwartz vacuuming is an excellent Way to add Luster prevent foliage disease and remove choking dust particles from stomata the tiny pores through which plants breathe. Quot Gean plants Are healthy plants and healthy plants grow and survive Quot he says. Because greenery is an increasingly popular decorative element in Homes and offices. Eureka s Home care Institute researched the problems of caring for House plants. After consultations with Schwartz a physician a residence at aiming s Flower land a Large Nursery in Melrose Park. Iu., they offered guidelines for achieving Green thumb status with healthy Happy plants. As a first step make the cleaning of plants As routine As cleaning carpets or dusting table tops. Small plants or those with delicate foliage should be wiped clean and polished with a Damp non abrasive doth. Large plants with Broad leaves can be quickly and thoroughly cleaned with a vacuum. Many plants Are on the vac unable list including rubber plants Scheffler com plants dragon Trees Cactus dumb Cane cast Iron also known As Snake plants and Mother in Law s Tongue and All varieties of Broad Leaf Philodendron naturally caution and gentleness should be employed when vacuuming Schwartz and Institute experts advise using the dusting Brush attachment and a canister vacuum that has both Speed and suction adjustments. With the vacuum set for Low Speed and gentle suction the Long soft bristles of the dusting Brush remove dirt and insects such As mealy bugs and red spiders which cause Plant disease a once allowed to flourish these potential killers Are like the plague a highly contagious and almost impossible to cure Quot Schwartz said. He feels these diseases can often be prevented if plants Are kept clean and advises vacuuming both top and Bottom Leaf surfaces at least once every two weeks to keep a step ahead of the almost invisible pests. Because they Lodge in hard to reach crevices of leaves vacuum suction is an excellent Means of drawing them out without harming the Plant. Misting leaves with a Plant sprayer before cleaning increases the effectiveness of vacuuming. Adding a Small amount of Leaf polish to the dusting Brush will produce a Lustrous Shine. Gear Jin Ess is Only part of the tender Loving care plants need and deserve Schwartz said. Other essentials Are Light food and water. Too much or too Little of any one can mean death. When natural sunlight is not available Schwartz favors a combination of incandescent and fluorescent Light As a substitute. In Spang he says plants require a full dose of food every month. During Winter months plants become Lazy and their monthly food allotment can be safely Cut in half. Though Schwartz disagrees Many successful Plant growers contend that extra attention such As talking to plants and playing music for them although not essential does make a difference. To Back up these claims they cite experiments conducted at the smithsonian institution which showed that plants respond favourably to vibrations in the air and attention from other living beings a Plant and human.
