Education Corner: Taking Care of your Shamrock
This month in Education Corner, our designers wanted to give you a few of our favourite tips on how to care for our feature Plant of the Month, the Shamrock.
Tip 1: Lighting is Key. When caring for your Shamrock plant, it’s important to keep it in a bright (but indirect) lighted area. Additionally, if you plan to keep in near a window Shamrocks, light most plants, tend to thrive in east-facing windows.
Tip 2: Keeping your Shamrock hydrated. When watering your Shamrock, it’s best to water it from the bottom. To do this, remember to keep the plant in the plastic growing pot that it comes in and sit the pot in roughly an inch of water for a few minutes to let the shamrock absorb the water. Also, avoid over-watering your Shamrock remember to allow the top 2” of the soil to dry out completely before watering it again.
Tip 3: Temperature. You don’t need to turn up the heat for this plant. Shamrocks live their best lives when the temperature is about 60 to 70 degrees during the day and 55 to 65 degrees during the night.
