In summer, with the heat, plants can have a bit of a hard time, so it is important to give them a little extra attention and care! Here are some tips to keep in mind when caring for your plants in summer.
Frequent watering: During the summer, temperatures are usually higher, which means that kokedamas can dry out faster. Be sure to water them more frequently to keep the substrate moist. It is also important to keep moistening the moss so that it does not lose its green color.
Proper placement: Place your kokedamas in a location where they will receive bright indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day, as it can burn the leaves and dry out the substrate and moss quickly.
Ambient humidity: Summer can be a dry time so it is important to increase humidity around your kokedamas by placing them in trays with pebbles and water, or by sprinkling water on the leaves. You can also group your kokedamas so that they benefit from each other's humidity.
Pest protection: In summer, pests can be more active, so keep a watchful eye to avoid infestations. If necessary you can also use a protective product to spray on your kokedamas. In Omotesando Plants we sell a Plat Protector that works very well for these cases.
By following these tips and paying attention to the specific needs of your kokedamas, you will be able to enjoy them all summer long and more!
