Moving Houseplants!

Getting ready to make a move and are a bit concerned about your potted houseplants surviving the journey?  Here are a few tips to help.
 
Be sure to wrap heavy plastic or cloth around your potted plants to prevent leafy branches from drying out.  Poorly packed potted plants tip over and bounce around, which can damage branches and break leaves off.  Cold and heat can damage them also.  During the winter, warm up your car and wrap the potted plants before taking them outside.  Never leave them in a cold car while you do additional packing.  In the summer, make sure the potting soil is moist and don't leave them in a hot car while you unpack other items.

If you wrap the potted plants make sure to use a permanent marker to make the outside of the package.  Mark what type of plant it is and where it should be placed in the new location.  Write the name on the bottom of the pot if necessary so you can remember how to care properly for it.

If you are going to be away from your plants for any length of time then make sure you have someone who can come into your home and take care of them.  If that is not possible.  Place 2 bamboo stakes on each side of the potted plant.  Drape a clear plastic bag over the plant and this will create humidity to help the plant survive till you return.

Another good tip is to lay plastic in the bathtub.  Cover the plastic with newspaper and then wet the papers.  Thoroughly water your plants, then set them in the tub and cover with plastic to keep the humidity high.
