We have been hearing from our parents probably grand parents in India, that it is not possible to dream money growing in trees but what if the actual world population starts saying money still grows in plants. Ridiculous!! Isn’t it. When I started to know about these plants right from my childhood my mother used to say a money plant is a must in every possible house and that’s what my topic for the post will be….
Ours family used to stay in a small flat and the suns rays fall directly to our room, keeping a plant may be a genius to add a décor to the rooms but when you have a sunlight that heats up your room instantly do you think there is a way to keep a décor just by killing a plant. I wouldn’t think that harsh way of treat for the plants. Anyway, by looking at some of my friends house filled with luscious plants my heart just throbbed to get one of those and by this influence I brought a small creeper, poured little water and waited to grow. Instead of growing healthily my plant was dying asking me to help in placing at the right position. I was helpless, eventually it died. I did not know I had to pay its price for dead occurred to such a lovely plant. What went wrong was I really was harsh in forcing it to die. Well no! I was mistaken with some of the tips my friends gave it to. Later when I started to work I took my edge of courage in making it grow all over again, for this time my plants were healthy and they were growing with broad leave and new leaves were taking its birth. Here are these if you are a lover of green leaves you can get a help from these tips furnished below:
- Money plant can be found in most part of the places, especially in those areas where you might not think that the creepers crawling around the could actually be a money plant. If you do not find anywhere else try to visit a garden house or a plant shop. But if you find this plant in your friends house pluck one of the stem creepers that has whole complete leaves in it.
- Keeping a whole plant filled with soil could be fantastic to grow but what if you not want to make your place dirty or you do not have a place at all. Then you could probably find a beautiful bottle filled with fresh water. Also, look in to it that the water is kept separate for at least 15 to 1 hour to settle chlorine or any other chemical that can harm the leaves.
- You can even add some stones or pebbles to make more decorative feeling of Zen spirit.
- As there is not soil or mud filled inside, watch the plants thoroughly for one week. If the leaves turn yellow that means the temperature is very hot where the plant is been placed or there could also be a possibility of having insects crawling on them. Suppose if you find the plant not improving its better to grow it where there is soil or you discard it away. But this rarely happens. I Still remember I had placed my plant in the corner of the dining hall that was too hot no one could be eating in that place especially during afternoon and night. Well, how would my plant survive if I could not even bear to it. So I decided to find a cool place for it.
- Having a yellow or dull colored money plant is not at all good even for people breathing around it . I remember that time when my plant was getting very dull and yellow. We had lot of unnecessary fights, expenses went high, and many health issues like fever, cold allergies was faced in so on and you do not want this to happen in your home. Whether you believe it or not this actually happened to us.
- Change the water once in a week you don’t want the mosquitoes or worms to be a part of its nest.
- If the laves are getting from green to yellow pluck those leaves and throw it away. There will be other leaves which will take its growth.
- If you feel lazy in cleaning the leaves, no worry at all. Take the plant keep it in the shower or you dip it in bucket filled with water. Let the water be cold as the leaves will turn fresh.
- While you fill the water do not pour boiled and cool water. Instead use tap water.
- Keeping a little light music around the room will make them feel fresh and healthy. This is scientifically proved that it can grow healthy.
