“We have built our homes over soil and greenery, so we should grow greenery on our terraces to replace what we have destroyed,” says Vishal Singh, a zero waste consultant, who has planted many plants on his terrace near Gantaghar.  Terrace space is often unused and gets plenty of sunlight – perfect for a terrace farm.  A terrace garden also keeps the house cool in the summer. The management students of Phoenix Business School have also developed a vegetable garden on their terrace near Suraj Pol.  However, terraces are just the beginning.

Sunburned Houseplants – What To Do When Plants Get Burned

House plants

in general enjoy the same indoor climate as you. Temperatures in 70-80 degree range and some humidity. When spring and summer arrive people like to head outside to enjoy the warmth and sunshine. This is a follow up on the post from the other day discussing the topic of moving houseplants outdoors and IS that a smart choice. Many people believe their indoor houseplants would enjoy the warmth and sunshine of the outdoors like they do.  As they go about their weekend chores as weather permits they move their houseplants outside to the patio for a little summer sunshine. Before long the busy starts… working in the yard, cleaning the garage, running off to do errands. Later… you remember your lush indoor houseplant is outside… slowly being toasted by the afternoon sun. Leaves burn turning a dark gray color and eventually turn to a black or brown.

Judy Bastien • jbastien@theadvertiser.com • November 22, 2008

You buy a new plant for your home. You transplant it into a nice pot with the best potting soil. You lovingly water it a couple of times a week.  And within a month, it’s dead. “Watering is the main culprit in most plant deaths, whether it’s too much or too little,” said Rob Trawick, county agent for the LSU AgCenter’s Lafayette Cooperative Extension Service. “More often than not, people will over-water. “People will go around two or three times a week, when they only need to water once a week.” Over-watering actually deprives the roots of oxygen and encourages root rot.
