The soil also becomes dry and the roots may not absorb water quantity that is needed. Therefore, watering the plant is a gardening tip for new gardeners.

A rose plant may need more water compare to an aloe vera plant. Keep this in mind before watering plants. Water them as required but regularly.

    Some tips are really new to me.
    I too would like to share some tips on keeping the home and the garden area mosquito free. I have many small potted plants in the balcony and on almost all the windowpanes of my house for last 7 years.

    I have noticed that in summers and monsoon the mosquitoes hover over the plants more than in winters. I think in summer they must be feeling cool around plants but in monsoons, the water collected in pots from rain become the breeding ground for them

    It becomes very difficult to empty the water from pots now and then, hence I read articles on best ways to kill mosquitoes, that helped me to understand why and where the mosquitoes can breed and multiply. Infestation of mosquitoes in homes can cause the risk of getting dengue, chikungunya, and malaria through mosquito bites.
