How to Care Adenium Plant: Keep soil moderately moist in spring and summer, but reduce watering in fall and especially winter when the plant is dormant. Fertilize with a dilution by half of a 20-20-20 liquid plant food once per month when the plant is actively growing. Do not feed the desert rose during winter. SUNLIGHT: In their native habitat, adeniums grow in full sun so they need good light to thrive. Direct sunlight is preferable, especially when they are in their active growth phase during the summer months. Water Requirements : Soil moisture is an important consideration in adenium culture. WATERING: Soil moisture is an important consideration in adenium culture. Their common name, Desert Rose, speaks to their ability to thrive with less water. Adeniums can tolerate higher moisture levels without harming the plant, as long as the temperatures are warm.
HOW TO GROW .ALLAMANDA BAIL: Water deeply until the excess moisture runs out of the drainage holes but then wait until the top surface of the soil dries out before you irrigate again. Allamanda doesn’t like wet feet. Fertilize in spring through summer every two to three weeks with a good blooming plant food. Allow the plant to rest in winter. Suspend fertilizing in winter as part of good Allamanda plant care. Restart fertilizing in April and move the plant outside as soon as temperatures are above 60 F. (16 C.). Prune in early spring and cut stems back to one to two nodes to promote tighter new growth. This plant is prone to spider mites and whiteflies, so watch carefully for these pests. At the first sign put the plant in the shower and hose off as many of the little guys as you can, then follow with daily applications of horticultural soap or a Neem spray.
HOW TO CARE ASPARAGUS PLANT: Asparagus will grow perfectly well in containers and pots, so long as you meet the growing requirements for asparagus. Compost should be fertile and well-drained. The spot you choose to site your asparagus pot should be sunny and sheltered from the wind.Mist the plant daily, focusing on the arching stems. If the plant appears to be turning brown and droopy, it likely needs more water. SUNLIGHT: Site - Full sun is ideal. Asparagus needs at least 8 hours of sun per day. Since asparagus is a long-lived perennial, do not plant where trees or tall shrubs might eventually shade the plants or compete for nutrients and water. WATERING:
1 to 2 inches
Asparagus needs regular watering, especially while young; give it 1 to 2 inches of water per week during its first two growing seasons; give older plants about 1 inch per week. If you give them a good start when you first plant them, and you'll have fewer problems in future years.
HOW TO GROW AN ALMOND PLANT?
Growing an almond tree requires an upfront investment of time and resources.
- Choose a sunny site. Almond trees need ample room to grow because they can grow up to 30 feet in height. Plant your sapling 15 to 20 feet away from buildings, power lines, and other trees. Almond trees need full sun and well-draining loam soil to thrive.
- Prep your sapling. Setting up your almond tree for success starts before it's even in the ground. Using a garden hose, spray off the sapling's rootball to make sure it's hydrated and that the roots make good contact with the soil.
- Dig your hole. Dig a hole deep enough to accommodate your plant's root system. If you've bought a bare-root or container-grown tree, dig your hole deep enough to match the depth at which your tree was planted in the nursery—most likely 18 to 24 inches. To make sure your hole is deep enough, gently place the plant inside and rest the taproot firmly against the bottom. If the base remains above the top of the hole, don't force it deeper. The taproot is sensitive and easily damaged by aggressive handling or trimming.
- Plant your tree. Place your sapling in the center of the hole and backfill it with well-draining soil. Firmly tamp down the soil to remove any excess air while filling. Immediately water your sapling with at least one gallon of water. Place a layer of mulch around the base of the tree to help retain soil moisture.
- Prune small twigs. Trim off any small twigs near the base of the tree. Young trees need pruning in order to focus all of their growth on their trunk and branches.
- Exercise patience. The almond tree's dormant period lasts about 5 years from seedling to fruiting, so don’t be alarmed if nuts don’t appear on your tree for the first few years.
How to Care Begonia Plant: Tuberous begonias will naturally die back each year. Start decreasing water in late summer to early fall and trim back foliage when it starts to yellow. Dig up the tubers at the first threat of frost. Clean any remaining dirt from the tubers and dry them on newspaper in a sunny location for about a week. To prevent powdery mildew, lightly dust them with sulfur powder and store individually in paper bags or wrapped in newspaper. Rhizomatous and wax types don’t die back and are usually pinched or lightly pruned each year to keep them healthy and encourage full, but compact growth. In warmer climates, this is best done in spring. In cooler climates, you can do this in fall as a clean-up before bringing them inside for the winter. In addition to cutting them back, check for signs of pests or disease before moving them indoors. Slowly acclimate them to their new inside location by first placing in a bright window and gradually decreasing the amount of light. This will to help prevent stress, which causes the leaves to drop. Once warmer temperatures return, reverse the process and move them back outside. See below for information on growing as houseplants. For all types, deadheading spent begonia flowers keeps plants clean and healthy, as well as promotes more blooms.
Soil:All begonias like evenly moist, well-draining soil with some added organic matter.
Amendments and fertilizer:For general growing purposes, apply a balanced water-soluble fertilizer once a month in the growing season. For plants grown strictly for their foliage, like angel wings, use a fertilizer that is higher in nitrogen.
Watering:Regular watering is important for healthy plants. The soil should remain moist at all times, but not too wet, as this can cause rot. Water at the base of the plant to keep the foliage dry and prevent leaf spot and fungal diseases.
Diseases and pests:Susceptible to powdery mildew, mealy bugs, mites, thrips, and whitefly. Stem rot and rhizome rot can be caused by overwatering and soggy soil.
HOW TO CARE BRINJAL PLANT: Brinjal plants easily grow in a container like tomatoes. These plants need good space to grow. Need a long, hot growing season of at least five months and can be perennial in frost-free areas, cropping for several seasons. These plants require evenly moist soil, so provide regular watering every day in summers and every 2 or 3 days in winters or rainy season. How much sunlight do brinjal plants need? Keep the container at any location that gets at least 6 to 7 hours of sunlight. Sunlight is very essential for the eggplants as it promotes the growth of the plant. In summer, plants should be watered even thrice a day as per water requirement.
How much water do brinjal plants need?

How can we control brinjal disease? Adopting good field sanitation, destruction of infected plant material and crop rotation help to reduce the spread of the disease.Imidacloprid, Cypermethrin and Dimethoate can be used to suppress insect vectors.
CABBAGE PLANT SIZE: 12-18 inch CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Let the sunshine in: Cabbages need full sun – at least six to eight hours of direct sunlight per day. Water wisely: It's best to water in the morning and at the base of the plant (soil level) keeping the foliage dry. Plants should be watered when the top 2 inches of the soil becomes dry to the touch.
How to Care Dracaena Plant: Dracaena plant care involves keeping the soil of houseplant dracaena moist, but never soggy. Drooping or yellowing leaves indicate over-watering or poor drainage. Learning how to care for a dracaena includes finding well-draining soil in which to grow your houseplant dracaena
HOW TO CARE GILOY PLANT: Growing Season, Spring to summer season. ; Soil (Potting Mix), 50% normal garden soil + 30% any organic compost + 10% river sand or coco peat. SUNLIGHT: Giloy can grow very easily in 5 to 6 hours of daily sunlight. If the temperature is too hot then try to provide shade when the plant is very small. Once your plants has matured it can survive very high temperature in tropical regions. WATERING: You can apply water in the pot whenever you notice top layer of soil drying. Apply a moderate amount of water in the evening daily in hot summer. If it rains then avoid watering and ensure good drainage in the pot. During winter you can water once after every 3 days. In natural condition it is dependent on rains so if you are growing in soil then water only when the soil seems very dry
HOW TO CARE GREEN LETTUCE: Once days become cooler, the shade can be removed to give plenty of sunlight to young lettuce plants. Lettuce grows best in loose, cool soil with good drainage. The addition of organic materials, such as compost or manure, will increase drainage, provide essential nutrients and improve your lettuce growing condition. "And this is called the cut and come again method method because once you cut or pinch the leaves off. They will grow back and they'll be ready to harvest again in about two to three weeks."
