Now that the days are getting longer, March is a great time to start spring maintenance on your houseplants.  Trim off any dead leaves or branches, wipe leaves, and fertilize.  Inspect for insects and apply treatment as needed.  We have everything you’ll need here at Pahl’s, stop in and see us!

Leaf ShineLeaf Shine
At this time of year many house plants are in heated homes.  Heat often comes from forced air heat and with the heat come a lot of dust.  Houseplants get covered with the dust and it limits the sunlight even more than just the time of year.  So spraying and cleaning the dust off houseplant leaves allows the plant the best opportunity to take in sunlight that is essential for photosynthesis.  Healthy house plants are better equipped to deal with the fewer hours of sun light we have during the winter months. Leaf Shine dries in minutes and is a natural formulation.


Liquid Plant FoodSystemic Houseplant Insect Control
This is a granular product that is placed on the surface of the soil and watered into the soil of the houseplant container.  The roots of the plant then absorb in the product and it circulates in the plant.  As the chewing and sucking insects feed on the plants they ingest the plant juices with the product in it and it causes the death of the insect.  No need to spray plants, it will control insects for up to 8 weeks with no odor.

Insecticidal SoapInsecticidal Soap

Because this product is natural it can be used on edibles up to the day of harvest (herbs, vegetable, etc.)  It controls aphid, spider mites and other listed insects.
