There are all different kinds of plant products fromHouseplant Dusting Wipes,Propagation Cone and much more. The different types of plant products can help keep your houseplants happy which is important to help keep you happy too. 

How To Use Houseplant Wipes 

Houseplant Dusting Wipes are helpful to do exactly as it sounds: clean your plants of dust, dirt and water spots. As a result, they leave your plant leaves looking squeaky clean! The Houseplant Dusting Wipes are made of extra thick Waffle-Weave texture for dusting smooth-leaved plants (i.e. Fiddle leaf figs, Dracaena, and Snake Plants). Let's say you have a pack of houseplant wipes but you don’t know how to use them, luckily they are super easy to use! 

Take a dusting wipe, clean your window then clean your plants leaves to give them the maximum ability to get the nutrition they need even with suboptimal lighting. Cleaning your plant leaves is a great way to prepare for the lower light months next to your windows. While you clean your plants with the wipes, be sure to check for any pests that may be residing in your plant. 

What's A PropagationCone? 

A plant propagation cone is used to grow larger seeds, pits, or bulbs over water - such as avocado seeds, tulip bulbs, or to showcase any plant cutting with its roots growing in water. Propagation Cones are a reusable accessory for all of your propagation needs, or just to help you beautifully display your water propagation. 

How Do You Use A Plant Propagation Cone? 

To use your plant propagation cone, place your cone on top of any standard-size drinking glass, rest your sprouted seed/bulb/cutting at the center of the hole and ensure roots are completely submerged in the water below.

What Is Plant Trail Mix

Plant trail mix is an ideal soil for tropical houseplants. Super chunky coconut husk, perlite, and charcoal provide a supportive but airy base allowing plant roots to grow strong and grab all the nutrients they need while allowing water to drain and prevent root rot. The soil is 100% organic and hydrated. Although it is worth noting that the hydrated coconut husk can build up a musk that dissipates quickly once opened and allowed to air out. This plant trail mix can be used for indoor or outdoor plants. 

How Do You Use It?

To use the plant trail mix, you just transplant the desired plants into the soil and water when the soil is completely dry. 

Houseplant Fertilizer Types 

There are different types of houseplant fertilizer, some beingConcentrated Air Plant Fertilizer,Air Plant Weekly Fertilizing Spray, andOrchid Fertilizing Spray. These can be used by following the steps below for each one. 

Concentrated Air Plant Fertilizer

  1. Mix 2 tbsp of concentrate with a one-gallon fresh tap water jug.
  2. Secondly, place Air Plants in a bowl and add enough mixture to cover them.
  3. Let plants soak for 15 minutes up to 6 hours.
  4. Lastly, remove plants from the mixture and shake off excess water. 
  5. Allow plants to air dry before returning. 

Air Plant Weekly Fertilizing Spray

Southside Plants recommends giving your air plants a quick soak and then topping them off with a spritz before putting them back to dry. Although a lot of customers spray their plants daily with this fertilizer and don't bother with soaking.
