Plant care concerning soil is very important, especially for potted plants. Use the correct type of soil required for each plant, such as well draining, sandy or damp.
Plant care includes providing the ideal temperatures needed for growing your plants. Some plants grow better in cooler temperatures or at certain times of the year, and others thrive in the hot summer months outside or well-heated places inside.
