WHY CLEANING THE LEAVES OF YOUR PLANTS MATTERS


TIP OF THE DAY

Plants need sunlight to photosynthesize, but did you know that they struggle to do so when their leaves are dirty?  In our nursery, we typically clean leaves with a damp paper towel once a week, and for our larger floor plants, we typically clean the leaves with coconut oil once a month.  You can use any food-grade coconut oil - just dab your towel onto the oil and then rub the leaves until they look sparkling clean.  Try not to rub too hard, and be sure to get all the veins of the leaves where dirt builds up.  The dirt should lift off easily and you'll be surprised how much there is on your towel!  Your plants will thank you and look amazing - don't be surprised if you see a little extra new growth in the following days!
