5 Plant Care Ideas for THIS Weekend - Propagation Edition

Modern Botanical sent this email to their subscribers on April 28, 2023.

Hi - here's a list of 5 ideas you can do this weekend if this lovely weather has you feeling like being a Plant Parent!

Feeling the warm weather and enjoying my living plant wall from my office chair has me thinking about my weekend plans and if I'll be spending time with my plants before Monday. Taking time to be w my plants always brings me joy. Caring for them as new leaves and roots come to life has a way of reminding me that some of the best things in life appear by being present and patient.

With that, here are a few plant parent ideas - growing in water / propagation edition - you might want to add to your weekend plans:

  1. Top off or Refresh your plants' water: this could be as easy as walking around and topping off water or be a more involved process of adding hydrogen peroxide to clean algae (if you need instructions on this, reply back and I can get instructions your way). For someone really wanting to take on a water project, investing in a Reverse Osmosis system - the under sink ones are great - is something your body and plants will thank you for! 
  2. Top off Plants w Nutrients: water works great for your plants in water for a while, but eventually they'll need added nutrients to support new leaf and root growth. And let's be honest, that new plant growth is half the joy. So give a few drops of nutrients to your plants and if you're in need of a good nutrient option, we have an effective and easy-to-use option on our site. Looking up Hydroponic Nutrients in google could also present a few other options to you if you're like to dive deeper into the topic! 
  3. Shop for Mother's Day Plant Mom's: yes, Mother's Day is coming right up. Well, it's on the 14th which is the second Sunday of next month. But if you'd like to gift something from online, there's less than 2 weeks left to order if you'd like to shop small business. We put together a really cute card and pink wrapping that you can add for FREE to orders over $50 this year. We're guaranteeing delivery as well. So add some Plant Mama shopping to your weekend plans and check those out here! 
  4. Groom your plants since we all love a pretty plant: Plants benefit from a bit of upkeep now and then. Whether you're wiping down the leaves, removing old leaves, cleaning up glass vases, or even removing browned portions from leaves (yes, I'll take scissors to my leaves from time to time) - the new look of a pretty plant is a lovely thing. 
  5. Get some new propagations started: long days and warm weather are optimal conditions for plant cuttings to take off. If you have existing houseplants and would like to get a few propagations going or even establish some new plants in water for your Modern Botanical Frames or just that cool vase you found while thrifting, there's no better time to start those propagations than now. Optimal temperatures will reduce the time it takes for new roots to show, and a healthy plant always brings a smile. Here's our Propagation Guide! 
  6. A few bonus ideas: if you'd like to dive deeper into some bigger plant projects, looking into growing in LECA or adding Moss Poles to your growing arsenal could be fun things to start planning. I'll leave it at that :)  
With that, happy Friday to you all. Looking forward to a year of happy healthy plants adorning all our walls. 
 
Best,
Conrad
