Learning for Life: Houseplant Renewal

It’s a New Year and your houseplants are hoping for some help surviving the long dark winter.

In addition to providing water and light Cooperative Extension Service has a free publication on “Air Layering to renew indoor plants,” a good guide for your leggy tropical plants. If you suspect your houseplants are suffering from pests our “Houseplant Pests and Control” is the publication for you, with identification guides and ideas for control if you find a pest.

Your local Cooperative Extension Service is your year-round resource for a variety of topics, visit: http://www.uaf.edu/ces/districts/kenai/ to find this publication and more or stop by and see us in the Doors and Windows Building on Kalifornsky Beach Road between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. We are “Learning for Life”.
