Mover Boston MA | Tips for Moving Your Plants
You have a lot to think about when you’re planning a move, and you don’t want anything to slip through the cracks. If you’re very invested in and attached to your house plants, you want to ensure that they make it to your (and their) new home safely. Finding a good mover in Boston, MA, that will be gentle with your plants during the move is important. But it’s just as important to care for your plants before and after the move.
Here are some tips for moving your plants into a new environment.
Notice and Replicate Their Environment
Before you pack up, take note of the environment your plants are currently in. This includes the temperature and humidity levels. If plants have been growing in the same environment for multiple years, they get accustomed to their environment, just like people. To ensure that they thrive in your new place, do your best to replicate their current environment. Keep the inside temperature the same, and use a humidifier or dehumidifier to keep the humidity at the same level as your current space.
Position the Plants in Similar Light
Plants also become accustomed to growing in a particular light. If you can position them in the same light, they will do better in their new environment. For example, if a plant has been growing near an east-facing window, it may struggle to grow in a north-facing window in your new home. It’s not always possible to position your plants in the same light, but making your best effort will go a long way to ensure that your plants continue to thrive.
Check for Pests Before the Move
The last thing you want to do is bring pests into your new home. Look at the stems, under the foliage, and in every little space where pests might be able to hide. Pests have a life cycle, so you may not be able to see them depending on when in their life cycle they are. To be safe, treat all your plants to get rid of pests before you move.
