When you get a plant in the mail, you’re ready to take it outside and plant it in the ground, but don’t! After being in a dark box for a few days, your plant needs to slowly be transitioned from shade to it’s proper amount of sun, over the course of a week. Also, it’s best not to bring a plant outside and inside each day as the significant temperature changes can cause your plant to go into shock. Lastly, before planting in the ground, grow your plant out to quart size in a container. Planting a small starter plant directly in the ground can cause it to go into shock or can cause it to grow much more slowly for the first few months.
When gardening, patience is always key!
