The following are some of the most common methods used to grow tropical plants. All of these methods have their advantages and disadvantages. Each method has its own benefits and drawbacks.

1) Fertilizing

Fertilizers are the best way to stimulate growth in your plants. They will provide nutrients to the roots and encourage new root growth. Most fertilizers contain nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and other elements that promote plant growth. Some fertilizers are water soluble which means they dissolve easily into water. Others need to be added directly to soil or potting mix so it gets absorbed into the soil where it can do its job better than without fertilizer.

2) Watering

Watering is another very important part of growing tropical plants. You must always keep the soil moist but not wet. Too much moisture can cause your plants to wilt and die from lack of oxygen. If your soil becomes too dry, it will rot causing the death of all your hard work!

So what type of watering do I use?

Well there are two types, regular and deep watering.

Regular watering means you water the soil. This type of watering is good to keep the soil from drying out, however, it does not get absorbed very well by the plant’s roots because the water has a tendency to run off and not soak into the soil where the plant needs it most. The best way to do this is with a simple rose that has a drip attachment. This will allow the water to slowly drip out of the rose and onto the soil. You should do this at least once a week.

Deep watering is also important to healthy growth. It involves getting your fingers into the soil and feeling for moisture. If it feels dry then you need to add water until it comes out of the bottom of the pot in a slow stream. The stream means the soil is evenly moist.

3) Temperature

Some plants require warmer temperatures while others require cooler ones. If the temperature is not within the range that the plant prefers then it will not thrive and will become sickly. If this happens then your only option is to either put up with it or get a new plant!

4) Sunlight

Plants need sunlight to survive and grow. Some plants require more sun than others, however, if there is not enough light for them they will begin to stretch out in order to reach the sun. This is not a good thing and will not only cause your plant to become ugly but it can also cause it to become unhealthy and die.

5) Humidity

Humidity is the amount of moisture in the air. Some plants like it dry while others like it very wet or even aquatic. You must make sure that you understand the humidity requirements for the plants that you choose to grow.

6) Pollination

Some plants require insects in order to reproduce or produce fruits, vegetables or seeds. This can be beneficial to the grower because it means more will be produced, however, sometimes you may want to keep insects off of your plants because they can damage them in some way.

7) Pests

Plants can become infested with insects, mold, bacteria, viruses and other things that can cause them harm. These agents of destruction can damage or even kill your plants so it is important to keep an eye out for them and get rid of them as soon as you possibly can.

These are the seven factors to growing plants. They are temperature, sunlight, humidity, fertilizer, watering, pollination and pests. Once you understand these factors then you will be on your way to becoming a successful grower!
