Pokon works wonders


Houseplants require the right care if they are to continue to grow and flourish. There are a number of things you will need to take into account for the best results.

1. The right soil

The soil provides the basis for every plant. By giving your houseplants the right soil, they will absorb nutrients and water faster, helping them to flourish and flower for longer. Houseplants can be grown in a special houseplant compost. The right compost will ensure you have healthy plants. Some houseplants place very specific demands on their soil. Pokon has created a range of speciality composts for these plants. You can be sure of the best result by using the right compost for your plant.

2. The right nutrients

Most composts contain enough nutrients to last your plant about 2 months. After this period your houseplants will need to be given fertilizer regularly if they are to remain beautiful and healthy. Moreover, healthy plants are more resistant to diseases and plagues. Pokon has created various fertilizers to meet the nutrient needs of all your plants.

3. The right spot

Sun, shade, light or semi-darkness... Every plant has its own favourite spot indoors, but temperature and humidity are important too. You will get the best results if you try to reproduce the plant’s natural environment as much as possible. Read the label on the plant, it will tell you what kind of conditions your plant prefers.

  • Avoid direct contact with window glass, as this can result in sunburn or frostburn.
  • Also avoid placing plants too close to heaters.
  • Dark corners are only suitable for green foliage plants that require little light.
  • Ferns prefer humid environments and regular spraying.
  • Plants in draughty spots will be more susceptible to mites.
  • Cacti prefer a cool and dry spot during the months of winter.

4. The right season

Some houseplants will require special care during a particular season. The one will need to rest in the winter, while the other may in fact require a little bit of extra attention or a specific winter spot. Read the label to see what kind of care your plant needs per season.
