There’s nothing wrong with giving your house植物s some fresh air during springtime after they’ve been cooped up all winter; in fact, house植物s actually appreciate this. 然而, when you take a 植物 from its indoor environment and place it in the outside elements all at once, the 植物 can easily become stressed as a result of shock.

Before you rush your house植物s to the great outdoors, they need to be gradually acclimated to their new environment. Acclimating house植物s to outdoor conditions is the best way to lessen the amount of shock and achieve successful adjustment to this new environment.

Moving 室内植物 Outside

Light is one of the biggest factors contributing to 植物 shock. In fact, the intensity of sunlight outdoors is far greater than that found within the home. Although most house植物s require sufficient amounts of light, it’s difficult for them to adjust from one extreme to another without taking proper steps beforehand.

In order to make this transfer more successful and with the least amount of 植物 stress, you shouldn’t place any house植物 in direct sunlight outdoors. 而不是, seek out a nicely shaded area, perhaps your patio or under a tree, and allow your 植物s to take in the fresh air for a few hours each day. Then gradually move them to an area allowing a little sunshine and slowly increase their time outdoors, even leaving them out all day. 几周后, the house植物s should be well adapted to their outdoor setting to remain throughout summer.

Caring for Acclimated 室内植物 Outdoors

Once your house植物s have been fully acclimated outdoors, there are still a few considerations to bear in mind. First of all, during the warmer months ahead, house植物s will be using more water and nutrients. This means you’ll have to increase their watering and feeding intervals, but be careful not to overdo it. 太多的水 or 肥料 can be just as bad as too little.

You may also be dealing with pests. 内部, house植物s are not typically bothered by insects or other pests so much as they are outdoors. Become familiar with some of the more common insects pests so you’ll be better prepared at fighting them off, 如果是这样的话.

Weather is another factor that can adversely affect house植物s that have been moved outdoors. 例如, wind can be a huge stressor for house植物s as they are not accustomed to it while indoors. Wind can easily dry 植物s out, or if strong enough, even toss them about and knock them over. To prevent any problems associated with wind, place your house植物s in a well-protected area, 如靠近一面墙. Although light rain is often a godsend to house植物s, downpours can have devastating effects on them, 击败他们的叶子, knocking dirt out from their containers, 淹没他们的根.

Outside temperatures can vary greatly from indoors as well, and since the majority of house植物s originate from tropical-like regions, they cannot tolerate cold temperatures or anything below 55 degrees F. (13 C.),尤其是在晚上. 因此, you should always bring house植物s indoors whenever threatening weather or cooler temperatures is imminent. Of course, with the onset of winter, you’ll have to acclimate them back indoors.

室内植物 enjoy the fresh, warm air of spring after a long dreary winter. 然而, in order to prevent shocking them to death, make the move outdoors a gradual one. 最后, your house植物s will thank you for it with healthy, vigorous growth and beautiful blooms.
