How to Repot Your Plants Step by Step

Container plants can get a much-needed boost if they are repotted. Most healthy container plants outgrow their pots. They can show many signs that they need rejuvenation, so pay attention to your plants and take action when you see them. Learn how to repot your plants step by step. 

When to Repot Your Plants?

Notice if your plants look like they’ve outgrown their container, their roots are growing out of the drainage holes or roots are pushing the plant up and out of the planter. Plant growth may also be slower than usual or the plant may become top heavy.

Check the soil, as well. If water is sitting on top of the soil and not being absorbed, if the plant dries out quickly or if the soil looks dry or is falling apart, these are signs that your container plant needs to be moved to a new home.

There is no exact timetable to follow on when to repot your plants. Typically, every 12 to 18 months is a good rule of thumb, though some plants are happy to be in the same container for years. The best time to repot plants is in the early spring, right before the growth season begins, but it can be done whenever you notice that it needs to be done.

When the time comes to repot your plants, follow these steps.

Select a Container

When moving a plant from a smaller to larger pot, choose a container that is only a couple of inches larger in diameter than the original. A small plant placed in a container that is too large could suffer in excess wet soil. Containers should have sufficient drainage and a tray underneath to catch excess runoff. Keep in mind that repotting doesn’t always mean moving a plant to a new container. A previously used pot should be thoroughly cleaned and rinsed so no lingering disease is transferred. Most importantly, repotting means fresh nutrients to give your plant a new start.

Water Thoroughly

Before you go through the repotting process, water your plant in the old container thoroughly. Plan to do this a day or two before you move the plant. If the soil is damp, it will hold together better and allow you to remove the plant with ease. Check the new potting soil, and if it feels dry, add some water to it too.

Remove the Plant

Turn the container sideways, hold the plant gently by the stems and pull it out. You may have to tap on the sides or the bottom of the pot or give the stems a gentle tug. A root-bound plant usually slides out in one piece. But if a lot of loose soil comes out with, that may be a sign it doesn’t need to be repotted. Take a look at the roots to be sure. They should be white or light in color. If they are dark in color or smell, that may indicate disease. To remove a stuck plant, run a knife around the edge or gently press the sides of the pot if it is a flexible plastic to encourage it to come out. 

Loosen or Cut Roots

Once the plant is removed from the container, loosen the roots and unbind or cut through tangled ones. This helps promote better nutrient absorption. Trim extra long roots, even removing part of the root ball if necessary. You may even make some vertical cuts in the root ball and cut through roots growing in a circular pattern to revive the plant when repotted. 

Prepare the New Container

Remove about a third of the old potting mix, then pour a layer of fresh, pre-moistened potting soil into the container. Place the plant on top, then fill in with potting mix until the plant can stand on its own. Don’t overdo the amount of soil or pack it in tightly. Allow the roots some space to breathe, and leave about an inch from the top of the planter unfilled. This will allow water to be absorbed, rather than running over the edge of the container.  

Water Your Repotted Plant

To complete the process, water your plant in its new container thoroughly and add plant food. It’s best not to stress the plant after moving it, so maintain the temperature, light and watering it gets.

Most Efficient Ways to Water Plants in Your Greenhouse

Greenhouse Irrigation Most Efficient Ways to Water in GreenhouseMany different types of greenhouse irrigation can be used to properly water the plants in your greenhouse. This article will give you tips on how to efficiently water the plants in your greenhouse regardless of the irrigation method you use. 

Automated greenhouse irrigation systems can help uniformly water plants in a greenhouse, but these systems may not be practical for a hobby gardener or a small grower.  

There are several factors that determine when and how much you should water your plants. Consider these tips to ensure you are doing that most efficiently.

Greenhouse Irrigation Tips

Tips on When to Water:

The color or the moisture level of the growing medium is a good indicator of when a plant needs water. As the surface color becomes lighter, it’s usually time to add water. Another test is to squeeze some of the growing medium in your hand, and if little to no moisture is present or if it falls apart, the plant should be watered. Use this as a general guide, as crop type, time of day, current season and weather also affect when water is needed.

Tips on How Much Water to Apply:

Growers can apply less water at more frequent intervals to avoid saturating the growing medium. The growing medium can also be purposefully saturated to retain more water. Either way, the growing medium will need sufficient time to dry. Shallow watering helps prevent root disease, particularly earlier in the plant’s life cycle. Too much water can result in root disease or slower growth rates. The challenge with each method is providing plants the same amount of water.

Tips on Watering by Season:

Day length, sun intensity and temperature determine how quickly growing medium dries out. During sunny spring days, plants may need more water because the medium will quickly dry. On cloudy and rainy days in the spring, plants may need less, especially closer to the evening. Plants that don’t have a chance to dry out can be susceptible to mildew and fungus. In winter, plants need even less water because the growing medium dries out slower. Plants watered earlier in the day will be able to dry before the sun sets.

For hobbyists and smaller growers, hand watering may be sufficient. It allows the gardener to evaluate the condition of their plants and take action if any signs of disease or pests are present. Irrigation systems help ensure that plants receive the amount of water they need when they need it.

How to Protect Your Greenhouse Plants from Pests and Disease

How to Protect Plants from Pest and Disease Gothic Arch GreenhouseGreenhouse growers aim to create an ideal environment in which plants can thrive year round.

Along with managing temperature and humidity, keeping pests out and preventing the spread of disease are important.

The best way to protect greenhouse plants from pests and disease is by keeping it clean and consistent.

By not only controlling the greenhouse environment, but also what you introduce into it, you can set yourself up for a successful growing season.

Keep Greenhouse Environment Clean

Pests and disease can spread quickly in an untidy environment. As part of your regular maintenance routine, wash all surfaces, clean pots and disinfect tools. Remove dead leaves and other old plant matter to eliminate insect food sources. Get rid of all standing water. When working with plants, wash your hands before and after. Promote air circulation by giving each plant plenty of room to grow. Growers can empty their structure annually to clean all surfaces, check all doors and supplies for damages, and make repairs. 

Keep Greenhouse Environment Consistent

Keeping the environment consistent throughout the greenhouse helps eliminate the hot, humid conditions in which pests and disease thrive. Some experts suggest natural ventilation systems are an ideal way to create those uniform conditions. Not only does the fresh air help control temperature and humidity, but it also contributes to transpiration and cell wall strengthening, beneficial for creating healthy plants. Automated climate controls can also have the same effect by creating consistent temperature and humidity to prevent the spread of pests and disease.

Inspect Greenhouse Plants Regularly for Pests

As a gardener, one of your most important tools is observation. Make time to inspect your plants regularly to identify and address signs of pests or disease before they get out of hand. Check your plants–or at least a smaller group of them–every day. Take note of spotted leaves, insects, insect skins, groupings of dying plants or unusual growth. If you suspect any plants are infested or diseased, remove them from your greenhouse and dispose of them right away.

Isolate New Plants in Greenhouse

Pests can also enter the greenhouse when you introduce new plants to the environment. When bringing in new plants, keep them isolated in an aquarium with a tight-fitting lid for up to two weeks to ensure no signs of bugs or diseases are present. Once you are sure that no pests or disease are present, you can safely transplant your new plants into your greenhouse. 

Use Barriers and Traps in Greenhouse

Growers can use barriers, screens and traps to protect plants from the vast majority of pests. Insect screens over vents, windows and other openings are effective, but they limit the amount of sunlight that gets inside the greenhouse. Floating row covers and sticky traps are commonly used to provide protection. Sticky traps placed under benches, close to vents and near windows and doors will help you monitor pest activity.

Tips for Using Pest Controls in Greenhouse

Choosing between chemical or organic methods of pest control is a personal choice. While some insects can be harmful to your plants, others are natural predators to those pests. Not all insects are bad! If using chemicals, start by using the least toxic methods of pest control first so there is less damage to those beneficial insects.

Pests and disease target stressed and damaged plants. The best defense against pests and disease is keeping your plants healthy. We can help! Call us at 800-531-4769 or visit www.GothicArchGreenhouses.com for the supplies you need to protect your plants today!

 

What You Need to Know About Caring for Hydrangeas

Caring for Hydrangeas Gothic Arch Greenhouse Mobile ALHydrangeas are prized for their big, colorful blooms, and if cared for properly, they will thrive, and their natural beauty will be enhanced.Even if you don’t have much space, you can still enjoy these flowers. Hydrangeas are suited to be grown as shrubs, in containers and in gardens. Just make sure they get enough morning sun (afternoon sun is too hot) and shade (but not too much). Base the amount of sun they are exposed to be where your garden is located. For example, hydrangeas that are further north need more light than those in the south.

If you understand the unique needs of hydrangeas, you can help nurture beautiful, healthy flowers that come back year after year.  

General Care for Hydrangeas

Though hydrangeas may appear delicate, they don’t require a lot of specialized care. They need plenty of water, one inch per week during their growing season. Deeply watering the plants is recommended three times a week to help encourage root growth. Be sure not to get moisture on leaves or the blooms. Providing this much water will protect plants from wilting on hot days.

Adding mulch to the base of the plant will also help keep the soil cool and moist. Plus, as the mulch breaks down, it will provide nutrients and boost the soil texture, especially if it is organic mulch. Finding the right fertilizer for your hydrangea variety will also boost growth and promote the health of the plant.

Hydrangeas tend to be pretty resistant to pests, but inspect your plants often. Typically, the best defense against aphids and red spider mites (pests that can infect hydrangeas) is giving them the proper care.

Hydrangea Pruning

Pruning hydrangeas properly can result in a more plentiful plant. Routinely trimming back dead leaves, flowers and branches will allow enough room for new growth. If your hydrangeas have enough room to grow, your only concern is to prune to remove dead wood and spent flowers. If a whole branch is dead, be sure to cut it off at the base of the plant.

With regular dead-heading, hydrangea plants are encouraged to produce more and bigger blooms. But pruning is important too. There is a growth-inhibiting chemical released by terminal buds at the tips of stems, so without this maintenance, fewer flowers are produced.

Dead-heading will help your plants bloom into the fall. Avoid pruning past August. By then, any new growth may be cut short by an early fall freeze. Allow any early fall blooms to simply fade away on their own, or cut your blooms and enjoy them! Hydrangeas make beautiful arrangements in bunches on their own or with other plants and flowers.

Changing the Color of Hydrangeas

You can change the color of your hydrangea blooms, but don’t expect it to happen right away. The process can take weeks or months! It’s recommended to wait at least two years before trying to make any change, so the plant has enough time to recover from the shock of its initial planting.

Please note that not all varieties can change color. Soil acidity influences the color of the flower—acidic soils (less than 5.5 pH) produce blue flowers; soils with a pH above 5.5 produce pink flowers. Changing the color from blue to pink is easier than changing pink to blue. Also white hydrangeas are unaffected by the pH level of the soil.

If your goal is getting pink hydrangeas to turn blue, don’t get discouraged. It will happen! One recommendation is to cover the base in pine straw, which adds a natural acidity. Other options to lower the pH and increase acidity include adding coffee grounds, eggshells and other compostable items, such as citrus peels. The addition of sulfur or peat moss to the soil can also result in blue flowers, whereas ground limestone can bring forth pink blooms.

To accurately determine which direction to go in, conduct a soil pH test. As you change the soil, continue to test it. A pH level above 7.5 can cause damage to the plant. When fall gets closer, all hydrangeas start to fade, but don’t worry! The plant’s bright, colorful blooms will return in the spring.

Using Ground Cover to Protect your Plants

Ground cover and low tunnels help growers transition between seasons with ease. Gardeners can prepare for late cold snaps and early heat waves that would otherwise devastate their crops.

Fortunately, ground cover and low tunnels make it easier to manage these changes, as well as offer other benefits. Growers can extend their growing seasons for warm or cool season crops easily

Ground cover and low tunnels are available in multiple widths, lengths and thicknesses to suit a variety of needs. With properly secured edges and careful maintenance between seasons, many covers will last through two growing seasons.

Many growers live in climates that have at least one or to harsh weather months each year. Learn about the types of protection available for your crops and plants and protect your investments year round.

Ground Cover for Heat Retention

If you need more time for warm season crops, plastic, heavy weight row covers will help to trap heat and maintain ground moisture levels. By trapping heat and moisture in the soil, plant roots will grow more quickly. This type of cover is also great for reducing weed growth by blocking the sunlight on the surface of the soil. Rolls of plastic ground cover, plastic mulch and paper mulch are all types of heat retaining covers.

Ground Cover for Heat Protection

Crops like lettuces, broccoli and squash need long-term protection from harsh heat. Growers can use low tunnels to achieve this protection.  A low tunnel consists of a set of wire hoops that bend over the plants. Plastic sheeting is then placed over the hoops to filter out UV rays while still allowing proper air flow.  Low tunnels are available with solid sheeting, or with slitted sheeting for more ventilation.

Your low tunnel hoops can also be covered with protective shade cloth. This adds another layer of protection for your most tender plants. Shade cloth can block up to 80% of the sun’s harsh UV rays creating a much cooler growing area. This is particularly great for seedlings and young plants that require more soil moisture to thrive.

Grow Lights Greenhouse Gothic Arch

How Grow Lights Affect Greenhouse Plants

How Light Affects Plants Greenhouse Gothic ArchLight is essential for plants to survive, but the color of grow lights can have a significant impact on how they develop.

With the help of LED grow lights technology, multiple experiments are being conducted to determine how plants react to light when exposed to different colors of the spectrum in terms of height, weight, color, texture and more.

Additionally, shade cloths come in a variety of colors and have the same effect on plants. Colored films are being used on the growing areas of the International Space Station as well!

Below is the general performance of plants when exposed to a particular spectrum of colored grow lights:

Spectrums Available in Grow Lights

Ultraviolet

Prolonged exposure to UV light can be harmful to plants, just as it is to humans. A study confirmed that when UV light exposure is eliminated, plants experience enhanced growth.


Violet

Violet light exposure intensifies the color, aroma and taste of plants. It also improves the antioxidant functions of plants, which naturally helps prevent cell damage.

Blue:

The most influential of all hues, blue light has the most powerful effect on plants. It encourages plants to accept more energy, reduces their water loss, and increases their growth and maturity rates. At least a minimal intensity of blue light is needed indoors for normal plant growth. Plants grown under blue light are shorter and have darker, thicker, and greener leaves than those not exposed to blue light. These attributes may be desirable when growing ornamentals, for example.

Green

Not surprising, since most plants are green, this color has the least effect on a plant’s growth. Green light does, however, enhance the production of chlorophyll and gives plants a greener color. Yet, some research shows green light can have positive effects on growth and flowering. 

Green light plays an important role in gardening, particularly as it relates to people. Without the presence of green light, plants do not appear green to the naked eye. Green light reduces eye strain for employees and helps detect any problems or pest issues. The good news is that white LEDs combine green, red and blue light, which provide the benefits of all three colors.

Yellow

Because yellow isn’t far off from green in terms of wavelength, it also doesn’t have much effect on plants. It has no influence on photosynthesis and, as a result, reduces growth.

Red

By itself, red light can help plants yield more leaves than blue light alone. But together, the combination of red and blue significantly improves plant growth, making it an optimal choice for development.

Far Red

Like red light, far red light plays an important role in plant development. Specifically, far red light affects germination and flowering. Essentially, this light encourages flowering because plants require less time in darkness.

How to Make Natural Ventilation Work in Your Greenhouse

Natural ventilation has become a preferred option for larger growers, in particular, as energy costs of fan cooling rise. This ventilation method works by supplying cooler air, such as through vents or an open-roof design, to allow the lighter, warmer air to be pushed out. All greenhouses built prior to the 1950s featured a system of louvres and vents to help allow excess heat to escape by pulling cooler air in.

More and more, new greenhouse construction is utilizing these same methods, but retrofitting an existing greenhouse is not significantly more than installing fans and shutters. In many cases, it can be about the same or even less.

Relying on natural ventilation alone will not work if the heat is too great. In that case, evaporative cooling systems are a simple and relatively inexpensive alternative.

Both, however, will require mechanical ventilation through the use of pads and fans, or a fogger system utilizing nozzles through the greenhouse. Mechanical systems can be used in smaller greenhouses, but the larger structures benefit from natural ventilation methods as much as possible.

Besides the energy efficiency and reduced costs it offers, natural ventilation allows for more even crop cooling. Crops are spread evenly throughout the greenhouse, and the grower can adjust the vent openings as needed. This will result in a more consistent crop, which in turn can improve sales and the bottom line.

Naturally cooling large gutter-roof greenhouses has traditionally been a challenge in Southern climates, specifically due to lack of sidewall space and relying on roof vents alone can result in uneven cooling.

Open-roof greenhouse designs eliminate this issue. To combat the heat on particularly hot, sunny days, a shade system can provide additional protection and keep temperatures lower. 

Natural Ventilation Considerations:

Size of Vents

The total combined area of roof and sidewall vents should be the same. They should also be at least 15 percent to 20 percent of the floor area. Gutter-connected designs will need larger roof vents or otherwise an open-roof cooling option.

Location of Vents

Sidewall vents are recommended to be located above bench height to allow outside and inside air to mix before it reaches plants. Again, for gutter-connected designs, roof vent location is more important.

Greenhouse Height

The trend toward taller greenhouses helps improve natural ventilation. This create the buoyancy effect, where lighter, hotter air rises, and also helps keep this air well above plant level.

Greenhouse Orientation

If possible, position your greenhouses where the summer wind follows along the sidewall. That helps use the natural flow of air. To make that more effective, ensure that trees, buildings and other greenhouses obstruct it as little as possible.

Seeds in Greenhouses

Tips for Starting Seeds in Greenhouses

Taking the first steps in the seed-starting process means that spring is not far away. But with greenhouses, growers can start that process. Starting your seeds in greenhouses makes it easy for seedlings to grow and plants to thrive. Browse our seed propagation supplies to find easy solutions to starting your seeds. 

Thanks to the controlled environment they offer, greenhouses not only extend the growing season, but they also offer the right conditions for starting seeds in them year round.

If you plan to transfer seeds to an outdoor garden, for example, start this process about six to eight weeks before the first frost in your growing region.

Get your seed-starting supplies together and follow these tips to prepare your plants for success!

Seeds in Greenhouses

Beginning with fresh seed is the simplest way to get started. You can use leftover seeds, but you’ll want to test them for germination. To do so, place a specific number on a wet paper towel. Fold it over the seeds and place it in a plastic bag inside your greenhouse. Inspect the seeds and add moisture as needed. There are supplies that make germinating seeds very easy such as propagation mats, lighting, and plug trays. 

Growing Media

Balance the amount of air and water content in the mix you use. While air space is important to create healthy seedlings, too much water can create swelling and result in too much air when your mix is dry and not enough when it settles. Avoid compacting your mix by lightly filling trays with your growing medium and brush the excess away. To ensure the right amount of hydration, add water to your mix before adding it to your containers. It’s just right when it is damp to the touch, but not wet.

Containers

Trays and cell flats make ideal seed-starting containers—particularly for large vegetable growers—because they can be filled quickly, are easily moved and are reusable. But they do need to be cleaned before use the next season, and if the plant becomes root-bound in the container, it can lead to transplant shock when transferred. Biodegradable containers eliminate this concern, but they do need to be restocked every season and take up more space in the greenhouse. For hobby gardeners, commercial trays (if that is your preference) are recommended because they are more durable and available in more options than what you might find at a local garden center. They cost more, but last longer.

Sowing

When planting your seed, please note that the placement of it is important to its success. For example, if planted too close to the edge of the tray, it is likely to dry out. Typically, it is recommended to cover the seed once placed (ideally in the middle of the container) with a light layer of soil. Others suggest simply pressing the seed down into the soil without an extra covering. Either way, once the seeds are planted, water them evenly and gently. Plan to group your seedlings by their temperature needs, so you can use mats if needed to efficiently provide heat if required.

Potting Greenhouse Plants Efficiently

Potting Technology Soil Mixing Gardening Containers PotsPotting greenhouse plants is time-consuming but manageable if you are a commercial gardener. 

In commercial growing, as operations increase, improving efficiency of labor and controlling costs takes on greater importance.

Depending on the size of your operation, a potting machine may be the answer. Potting greenhouse plants becomes easy and efficient with the use of these machines. This technology enhances productivity and helps achieve greater uniformity (which also impacts efficiency and quality) of your plants.

Using Technology for Potting Greenhouse Plants

Manufacturers of these machines suggest them for operations that grow 100,000 planting flats per year. With that volume, the ROI comes in two to three years.

Potting machines work by holding gardening containers in place, filling them with soil and punching a hole for the plant. Workers may replenish the pots and refill potting mix to keep the streamlined operation moving.

Though machines can automatically fill a range of pots, it’s best for consistency to do a large run of the same size pot. This uniformity allows each container to fill with the same amount of soil, compressed to the same level and for the plant to be centered.  This allows plants to receive the same amount of food, water and necessary growing space. 

Machines can typically handle a range of container sizes, making the process even more streamlined. 

Keep in mind that the potting machine should be able to manage your soil mix. For example, it should be light, moist and free of clumps so it can move through the machine with ease.

Maintenance typically requires only lubricating bearings, tightening belts or cleaning. It’s recommended to keep spare parts on hand so when needed your operation doesn’t suffer from much downtime.

Commercial Greenhouse Operations

How to Improve Commercial Greenhouse Operations

The greenhouse industry in the United States has steadily grown—and is expected to reach $4 billion in sales by 2020. Limited resources such as labor, land, and water present challenges in commercial greenhouse operations. 

With a greenhouse operation, commercial growers can manage and optimize this supply and demand dilemma with the help of automation, conservation, and efficiency.

Growers wanting to improve upon and streamline commercial greenhouse operations should consider:

Energy Efficiency

 Help improve the energy efficiency of your commercial greenhouse by minimizing leaks to the structure. That means: weather stripping doors, windows and ventilation openings; sealing the foundation—a major source of air loss; and ensuring windows and doors close and fit properly. Additionally, exhaust devices should be shut off when not in use, and automated device openings should be adjusted and lubricated.

Ventilation

Creating an ideal environment starts with proper greenhouse ventilation. Smaller greenhouses can get adequate ventilation with passive means, but larger commercial operations depend on mechanical systems to help regulate temperature and humidity. Bigger structures face a challenge in ridding excess water, which can mean higher humidity. To best address this challenge, commercial greenhouse combine dehumidifiers and fans to pull excess moisture out and replace it with cooler, drier air.

Lighting

Commercial growers should be aware that the lighting options they use meet the needs of their plants at every stage. For example, younger plants thrive under higher intensity light, which creates greater photosynthesis. Plants that don’t require full intensity light can provide an energy-saving advantage by reducing the use of artificial light and substituting inefficient incandescent lights with compact fluorescent lights.

Sustainability

Moving commercial crop production indoors is one way to reduce an operation’s environmental footprint. By giving growers more control over the conditions inside, they can maximize what Mother Nature is providing—natural light and heat, for example. Hydroponic gardening is another way to reduce soil use and water for the same sustainable effect.

Maintenance

Because of their size, commercial greenhouse operations rely more heavily on mechanical equipment, which requires routine maintenance and repair. Therefore, starting with the best supplies is ideal. Proper and regular upkeep of pumps, heaters, fans, and ventilation systems can not only extend their life span but also improve the efficiency of the operation.
