If you’ve ever had hanging plants, you know how difficult it can be to take care of them. Hanging basket drip pans make watering and taking care of your plants easier. Additionally, they protect your home from damage caused by water drainage. So, consider hanging basket drip pans for your plants and be sure to water hanging plants well to keep them looking beautiful.
Proper Watering for Your Hanging Plants
Unfortunately, hanging plants tend to dry out quickly. Generally, this is because the soil is lighter, so they aren’t too heavy to hang. Additionally, many hanging plants actually contain multiple plants in one pot. Therefore, hanging plants need to be watered frequently.
Check the soil of your plants often to feel for dryness. Any time the soil is dry, be sure to water your plants well. In some cases, you may need to do this as much as once a day. Additionally, it’s important not to let the soil dry out too much, as the soil may bind together and prevent water from penetrating the soil ball properly.
In order to water your plants adequately, attach hanging basket drip pans and add water to the pot until it starts to flow out of the bottom of your pot. This way, you’ll know for sure that the whole soil ball has received enough water.
Using Hanging Basket Drip Pans for Your Hanging Plants
Your hanging plants need ample drainage to prevent root rot. Therefore, ensure that your plant’s pot has drainage holes in the bottom. With drip pans for your hanging plants, you can ensure that there is plenty of drainage and that your plants will have adequate water. Leaving a little water in the bottom of your hanging basket drip pans allows your plants to “drink” water during the day. Therefore, they can help you create healthy plants.
Similar to plant saucers, drip pans help protect your home from water damage from plant drainage. While many hanging plants come with drip pans, these are often quite small. Small drip pans are unable to handle large amounts of drainage. However, our hanging basket drip pans are deeper to allow for adequate drainage so you can water without worry.
