Do you have a dying plant at home? Don’t be too hard on yourself, it happens to the best of us. Too much water, too little sun, too close to the heating: there are many reasons why your plant may be dying. But don’t throw it away! There is a special place you can bring it to: the plant shelter. Here they will be nurtured back to health until they’re ready for adoption. Read all about it in this article.

What is a plant shelter?

If you have a dying plant — or a plant that no longer fits in your home — you can bring it to a plant shelter for free. Here, volunteers ensure that plants receive the right care, so that they will revive. The plants can stay there as long as they need. After that, they are ready for adoption! So you can also go to a plant shelter to adopt a plant. In return, you can make a donation. With this money, the volunteers can buy potting soil and other supplies for the plants. It’s much more sustainable than buying a new plant in store!

Also nice: if you bring a plant to the plant shelter, you can usually choose a new one in return.

Where do I find a plant shelter?

There are a lot of plant shelters, in many different places. Wondering if there is one in your area? Just Google plant shelter + your place of residence and you will immediately see if there’s one. Sometimes you have to make an appointment in advance to go there, sometimes you can just walk in. So check this before you head over there.

Plant care tips

Of course prevention is better than cure. So here are a few plant care tips:

  • Anthuriums like to stand in a well-lighted place, but don’t like direct sunlight.
  • In the winter period, the Anthurium plant should be watered once a week. In the summer, it can be watered twice a week.
