Things To Do -- June

By Barbara Rengers
1. With higher temperatures, an increasing amount of growth will be seen. Water heavily during the day, as much as twice a week.

2. A shower is good for plants, too. Be careful not to leave salt deposits on plants or risk fungus infections.

3. Check newly acquired plants for mealies. Quarantine and treat, if required.

4. Continue repotting plants in old soil.

5. Cacti need fresh air at night. Differences between day and night temperatures are optimal this month.
