So, to prevent our plants from turning yellow, spray a little water all over the plant. Give lots of water to plants so they are fresh and not stressed. As the plant adapts to the new environment, let’s prepare the pot and soil. Don’t forget to always buy vitamins and fertilizers once you’ve decided to buy plants online.

Instead of giving the plants a lot of air, you also need to know in advance whether the plants you are buying are types of plants that require a lot of air or not. Some plants that are watered too much will wither and then die.

Because the plant may be stress after several days not having water and sunlight, we have to make sure that the soil we have prepared is good for the plant. The best soil for all plants is the porous one and not solid. It will make the water spread to all of the areas of the soil and come out from the pot.

Make sure you choose a pot that matches the size of the plant so that the plant can grow well. The longer the plant will grow and the roots of the plant will be disturbed if the pot is used too small.

Vitamin B1 or Thiamine Hydrochloride is an activator nutrient to stimulate the plant to grow better. This vitamin makes stress-plant healthy. Even though we have to measure that this vitamin doesn’t hurt the plant even more. The excessive use of B1 potentially making the plant died.

After that, give a plant a rest and put it under the sun. Or if there is no sunlight at that time, wrap the plant with big transparent plastic then put it under the lamp or the table outside the house. You will see the differences the next day. Your plant will grow healthy and beautiful.  B1 is famous for reducing the stress of plants, accelerate growth, and push away bugs and fungus. However, B1 can only be used in two until three weeks after the first usage.

Once we open the package of plant, immediately put it in the soil or give some moss on the soil as the media. There are several benefits for planters when they deciding using moss as media for planting their plant. It is well known for Moss that they can stimulate the root to grow faster and healthier. Moss makes roots not rotten because of the overwatering.

As for the plant that we buy online, Moss can reduce stress and yellowing. They also enhance flowering and fruiting. Moss can increase the plant to resist heat, drought, frost, pests, and disease. Even we know that Moss solution is not a nitrogen-based fertilizer, it is safe to use on all plants.
