REPOT HOUSE PLANTS
FOR WINTER MONTHS |
Betore cold weather, the house
plants used to add a note of colo'
and cbeer to the home during wia-i
ter should be repotted and so shaped |
| that they may be brought into thtirj
I winter quarters.
"The first step ir. repotting plants
is to prepare the right kind of soil,"
says Glenn O. Kandali. assistant horticulturist
at State College. "A mixII
ture containing from one-half to|
one-third of fine, well decayed ma[
nitre with an equal part of irch gar-'
ti den soil with probably a little sand
should produce vigorous plants. If:
a quart of superphosphate is added
to each bushel of such soil and well
I mixed with it, better results will be
. In repotting the house plants, Mr.
Randal! advises ample drainage in
each pot. Cinders, gravel or broken 1
' pieces of rot placed in the bottom

organic matter, provide this drain!
age. After potting, the house plants
should be carefully watered. While
: the soil needs to be kept moist, the
plants do not require as much mois-'
; ture in winter as they do in the hot
i summer months. To keep the best
! soil condition, waterings should he
i less frequent but more thorough.
The plants also need a supply of
food. There are some materials
such as "vigoro" that are readily
available and may be applied at the :
rate of one teaspoonfill to each sixiich
pot at six to eight-week intervals.
Such materials should be applied
just before the plants artwatered
and when the moisture is
applied, i' will soak the soluble
plant food into the soil where the I
plants may use it immediately,
states Mr. Randall.
It is said that President Coolidge
doesn't like to heap anybody surer.
