Caring for Hydrangea

For detailed care tips, visit Hydrangea Care Tips

When tending potted hydrangeas, it is important to care for the plant properly.  Hydrangeas should be placed in a pot which has proper drainage holes to allow water to exit. Once potted, it is vital to water the plant regularly, as the large blooms consume a large amount of water.  Check soil moisture daily to see if water is needed. Empty any standing water to prevent the roots from developing wet feet. If you plan to be away for a day or two, cover the plant with a transparent plastic bag so that it won’t lose water as quickly. 

Place the hydrangea in a location which gets bright indirect sunlight to prevent the plant from burning. At night, place the plant in a room which is below 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
