When transplanting a plant, one of the first things we do is give its roots a lot of water. And when we water our plants daily, we water the roots not the leaves. If you water the leaves, you can encourage disease. So, this is the one time you can aim low and its ok. The first thing we want our plants to do is grow a healthy and well developed root system. This is typically underground so we tend to forget it. But, it is very important to the plant. The roots go out and seek the nutrients the plant needs to survive and thrive. We want to encourage a well developed and deep root system with access to all the nutrients it needs to cause our plants to thrive. So when applying fertilizer or just watering your plants, always aim for the roots of the plant. This practice will encourage and promote good plant health.
Regardless if you are growing a simple indoor herb or an outdoor onion nourishing the roots is key. Thank you for taking this journey with us. What have you learned so far along the way?
