Jobs month of September
After the hot days of August for our plants the coolness and rains of September are a real refreshment and an invitation to resume vegetative development; we can already see new small leaves appear, as if it were a second spring. To encourage the development of our plants, it is advisable to resume normal fertilizations, suspended or thinned during the hot summer period; we can also take advantage of the mild climate to repot the plants that have been in their container for too long and thus give them new strength to grow, or we can take stem, leaf or root cuttings, which we will take root in a mixture of sand and peat in equal parts, to be kept in a cool place, better if shaded and with high environmental humidity.
Works for houseplants
Even if the minimums have decreased, the sunny days are still rather hot, it is therefore good to remember to keep the more delicate plants in the shade, such as for example the species of ficus and orchids particularly sensitive to direct exposure to the sun's rays; we also pay attention to thunderstorms, which at this time of year are often very violent and could irreparably damage our plants; for example, we could have anti-hail nets, or mats to prevent weather events from ruining leaves and stems. These are the main works to be carried out during the month for the care of our beloved apartment plants: with a few good rules it will be possible to obtain splendid and vigorous plants capable of beautifying and making your apartment more welcoming.
