Parent Category: Home & Garden
Houseplants are potted plants that don't require direct sunlight. Questions on propagation, re-potting, watering, fertilizing, general care of houseplants, lighting, and where to grow the plant.
it really depends on how much salt is used ... but the salt actually stuns it's growth .. and if too much salt is put on the plant it will die very quick
Cosmos flowers can tolerate warm and dry weather.Cosmos flowers can  regrow in the following spring if seed falls on bare ground.
Yes, I don't know exactly how but it does help. Just don't use a  lot.
Jacobite rose (Rosa alba 'Maxima.' ) dates back to the 16th century and is the double form of the white rose of York.
No, if you add isopropyl alcohol to a plant it will wilt and  eventually die.
The cactus seed may be found within the fruit . It tends to germinate between 66 and 70-81 degrees Fahrenheit [19 - 21-27 degrees Celsius]. Germination tends to take about 2-4 weeks. A properly treated cactus plant may be of good size within 1-2 years of germination.
One way to rid plants of pesky gnats is to make sure that you are  not over-watering. If you let the soil stay wet all of the time, it  can attract gnats. Another way to rid your plants of gnats is to  keep small bowls of apple cider vinegar out near the plants.
Because of the moisture retaining properties of the humus content.
termites stay away from philodendrons so if u have one in your home you wont have termites.
An example of a blue or purple flower whose spelling begins withthe letter "c" is columbine.
    one of the plants that produces the most oxygen is Pistacia mexicana Kunth acording to some of my teachersthe most plant that gives the most oxygen is: 'The Tree Of Life' (coconut tree)
  It depends what you mean by better.   They will grow more naturally in sunlight but can be forced artificially with lights and may produce more and be grown out of season. I would say natural is better but then we have a world to feed.
Not too often. You just want to keep the soil moist. Most ivys prefer less water to more.
You need to ejaculate into the soil for added nutrients.
No. But hot water had less oxygen content than ice water.
Carefully pull the needles out and and squeeze/cut the cactus.
One answer: To survive the plants have to leave oxygen, which is very importantfor us. But all the trees that grow or grow inside the houseprovide relatively little oxygen. More information: There are various internet articles listing houseplants that arethe best oxygen producers and air filters...
They can carry diseases.In some countries, particularly in tropical  regions, these insects can be transmitters of parasites and  diseases such as filarial worms in humans and bluetongue virus in  livestock.     Bluetongue results in more than $120 million dollars in financial  loss in...
All plants grow well in garden soil.
That's mean that your cactus is growing well and very naturally . So don't scare , that's normal for all cactuses . You should give your cactus a little much water when it's overgrowing : when the cactus have red spines ! I hope i helped you !
    the chlorplasts trap in the color to make it change
Entomophily is a form of pollination whereby pollen is distributed  by insects. These plants usually have characteristics that make  them more attractive to insects.
  China and Japan - according to http://www.waldecks.com.au/caresheets/Azaleas.PDF
  Isopropyl alcohol is used as a sterlizing agent in medicine. Isopropyl alcohol is twice as toxic as ethanol because it does not cause anion gap acidoses. Isopropanol is oxidized into acetone, and cannot leave the cell. Therefore it toxifizes the plant, and it dies. The plants defence mechanism...
To allow man to survive. Fortunately many areas are like North America where trees and forests are growing in acres, numbers and density. Remember that 100 years ago, a forest fire could go on for months and destroy millions of acres. Today we can stop these fires.
  Our plant book says to cut at an angle and put it in water till it roots. Then plant.
Orchids can be watered once a week by placing a few ice cubs on the  soil. A properly cared for orchid from your local florist can  produce flowers for 3+ months.
It's a good idea not to shock them. Keep a full jug or watering can in the room. Refill it AFTER watering the plants. That way the water is about the same temperature as the plants.
The state of Maine is located in the northern part of the United  States. Maine is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and New Hampshire.
Builders should cut down trees to obtain materials for building.  Some people believe that trees should not be cut down however, for  environmental purposes.
In the woodlands.
provide optimal conditions
bothAdded correction: It is chemical because you can not simply revert it (newly grown hair) back to its original compounds. Plants (newly grown) are product of many (bio)chemical synthesis reactions. It is much the same as growing animals or humans.
Water , dissolved nutrients , and byproducts of photosynthesis are stored in the cactus stem. The water and the dissolved nutrients are sent up into the stem from the cactus plant's roots. They're held in the stem until they can be used in the photosynthetic interaction with sunlight. From that...
  Yes, so long as the cold doesn't damage the seed or the plant. Liquid water shouldn't be much of a problem, but the direct contact of ice might cause some damage. Then again, tropical plants will be more sensitive than hardy plants.
You could possibly find non-vascular plants around your house.  Non-vascular plants are plants that do not have leaves, stems, or  roots. Algae is an example of a non-vascular plant.
They make their food out of sunlight in a process called photosynthesis.
  During the daytime, plants produce energy in the form of ATP and NADPH (light reactions)...during the night, these energy forms go to the dark reactions (Calvin Cycle) to fuel the production of organic molecules from CO2 collected during the day...some of these organic molecules will be stored...
tissue culture or cell culture
  This is an easy to care for, fast growing plant...can be grown in doors or in a moderate climate. The plant has bold green arrow head or heart shaped leaves that grow the same as a traditional ivy. Easy to root
Plantae, or the plant kingdom.
plants need light to carry on photosynthesis, and if you are wondering what that is that is how the plants make food
It would be "Toyota Corolla.
  # first of all they do grow in soil and sunlight better than in water and soil .  # next they need soil and sunlight just as much as they need water .  # but plants also needwater to stay alive.
  How interesting, I was just thinking about this, this morning. Some plants can continue to grow after they have been cut (Philodendron), but not roses. They are essentially in shock and even with proper nutririon they will not continue to grow. If you are (or have) experienced this with roses,...
  There is no male and female. They are both at the same time. Nepenthes, however, do have a gender difference.
The stems or tops of crop plants such as peas or potatoes is known  as Haulm.
glycerol esters mixed with oils.
examples are algae, moss or a fern

The most common scientific name is: Echinopsis spachiana
osmosis is the process that water enters the stem of a plant
ants and bachak burrows into house plants
No, it does not kill plants, it might be of some benefit to them.
Obviously, they care for the trees because they love trees. Take that mr robinson!!! Ho Ho Ho!!
The whole idea of growing bonsai is to grow them as slowly as possible, however to get you started off a little quicker I would suggest planting them in the ground to begin.Tree's will generally sprout and grow more quickly in the ground and, with the correct care (fertilising and soil composition),...
its better to grow in the sunlight because it will be real,natural light.and plants are part of nature so it's better to use natural thing for them
  Sunflowers are annuals, and so they only live one year.
because ferns are found in many swamps and lakes. the have long green stems which produce semen (a type of polland that the plant produces if alot of water is near.Edited answer:Because mosses and ferns require water for the movement of their male gametes towards female gametes for fertilization.
A plant will grow in the direction of the light source. Most light  sources are above the plants therefor the plant will grow up.
Yes sure. But it needs some rest. So trim off the dried stems, don not water it too much (about once a week a tablespoon) and do not move it around.     what do you mean by the dried stems?
The adaptations of the cactus includes small and spiky leaves that reduce evaporation of water. It also prevents loss of water. The cactus has also a thick and juicy stem that stores water. It carries out photosynthesis like any other normal green plant. Waxy leaves, long roots, have needles ...
  Lack of air circulation around the plant is the most common cause, second is likely overly wet soil - the mold starts in the soil then spreads to the plant
Sexual. If you stay up at night and watch them, you will see them gathering in pairs, and they will start screwing each other. Please note the sarcasm in that sentence.
  There is no such thing as a bonsai seed, a sugar maple seed is just a sugar maple seed. To grow it into a bonsai will take many years, at least 5-6 before starting any pruning, wiring, or going into a bonsai pot/soil. Sugar maple seeds take at least 30 days to germinate after they have been...
I wouldn't think it was a very high number. Only people that buy those plant pots that say self watering etc.
I grew up working in a greenhouse. So if it needs a bigger pot, then put soil in and plant your fern. Water it often and make sure it gets plenty of sunlight
I am wanting to take a start off my (perinneal) geranium, in flower bed.. what is the best way of doing it... the mother plant is in my flower bed, with an over head eeves, so no direct water hits the plants.. thought I could take a slip and dip it in root-tone, and then just plant it in the flower...
They grow themselves, you just feed, water and protect them.
One cubic yard is equal to 694 dry quarts.
There are 4 kingdoms: Protists FungiPlants Animals Plants belong to the plant kingdom, which includes mosses, ferns, conifers, flowering plants, and certain types of algae.
the cactus includes small and spiky leaves that reduce evaporation of water. It also prevents loss of water. The cactus has also a thick and juicy stem that stores water.
The best way to grow a new plant another plant or the mother plant  is to root a cutting in water. You can do this by using a pair of  secateurs or pruning shears, snip off a shoot about 15 cm in  length. Cut at an angle just below a "leaf node" (where the leaf  joins the stem). Ideally, there...
The saguaro cactus [ Carnegiea gigantea ] may sprout from seed within 2-4 weeks . But it'll take 40+ years for the cactus to sprout branches and flowers. During the first four decades of its life, it concentrates energizing photosynthetic products into such life supporting processes as growth and...
The plant would die because plants need light to produce nutrients for its self. A plant gets nutrients from chemically turning light into carbohydrates.
  24 hours is what they say for a fish tank. that should work fine for plants too.
The Easter blooming cactus [ Schlumbergera gaertneri ] is a successful houseplant. So it can live for many years if its environment supports its needs. It's a jungle cactus from Brazil. So it's the opposite of the desert cactus in its needs. Specifically, the Easter cactus isn't used to...
Some drugs as well as extreme circumstances like heat exhaustion.
The plant would grow according to light, which is a tropism, and it would grow upwards despite gravity. So it would bend to where the sun is.
Paper whites, snow drops, Lily of the Valley, Dutchman's Breeches, Trillium, Dog toothed violet, Sweet woodruff, and Bloodroot, come immediately to mind. Some hyacinths, and some jonquils are white in colour as well.
  cut flowers, no. growing plants, yes.
The saguaro blossom [ Carnegiea gigantea ] is the state flower of Arizona . In 1901, it became Arizona's territorial flower. In 1931, it was confirmed again, but as the state flower.
nothing I would think the world's atmosphere would become carbon dioxide enriched, the temperature would rise, the rain would become highly acidic and the planet would become dead
they are the part of the flower which attracts bug and animals to fertilize it by umair obaid
As light intensity increases, the rate of photosynthesis will increase as long as other factorsare in adequate supply. As the rate increases, eventually another factor will come into shortsupply. The graph below shows the effect of low carbon dioxide concentration.
Hi, I have a beautiful serigraph by Gillian Field done in the late 1950's. What you probably have is a serigraph.
Dieffenbachia plants require well drained soil. Repot in thespring. You sometimes need a cachepot because the plant is topheavy.
Because there's this thing called chlorophyll in them. Chloroplasts make red, brown and orange. When it dies the chloropyll goes away it reveals the red, orange and brown.
