While misting, we should also ensure that plant does not receive excess water in soil. Watering of plants should be done only when the soil become fully dry.
Soil: Drainage in pot is necessary by making sufficient holes in bottom. To make the ideal potting mix, 20 % drainage media (river sand/ Leca/ Perlite/ Pumice or rice husk- use any one of them) in potting mix should be available. In rest of the potting mix, we should mix Cocopeat (20 %), vermi – compost (20 %) and garden soil (40 %) in equal ratio. Use of Neem Cake (5-10%), will improve further quality of potting mix.
