Tips to keep your house Hydrangea looking good indoors:
- Put the Hydrangea in a bright spot, at room temperature
- Ensure the soil in the pot is kept moist. The plant will enjoy a plunge bath once or twice a week.
- If necessary put a saucer under the flowerpot to catch excess watering. Throw the excess water away after half an hour. If too much water remains in the outer pot or saucer, the roots can die due to a lack of oxygen. As in the case of soil that is too dry, the flowers and leaves will sag.
- Forgotten to give water? Dip the pot completely under till the root ball is completely saturated with water, let it drip for a little while, and then let the plant recover in a cool spot. This can take a while.
- Give pot plant food every other week, following instructions on the packing.
- Depending on the type of indoor hydrangea and the location in the house, the plant will bloom for at least 3 weeks.
