After you reach your destination, give your plants a few weeks to recover from shock. You can notice some plants losing their leaves — don’t worry, it’s a normal process of them coping with stress.
Do not leave your plants on the street for a long time after unloading from a car. This applies to any season of the year; although, winter especially — an additional temperature drop may be caused. If you are moving in the summer, unpack the plant in a new apartment immediately and remove wrapping. If you are travelling in winter, leave the boxes in the package for a couple of hours so that they get used to the new temperature.
Remove any damaged leaves and put the plant in partial shade. After this, give the flower its new place. During the first two weeks, observe your plants carefully and let them maintain a so-called ‘quarantine period’. Try not to overwater them. After quarantine is over, place the plants in their permanent places and provide them with the usual care.
Truly, the process of plant transportation may be both tricky and demanding. Nevertheless, if you prepare all the necessary materials in advance, your botanical collection will stay healthy and will quickly adapt to the new conditions. Also, if you can’t take all the houseplants to your new home — due to the shortage of space, law restrictions, or other reasons, ask your friends, whether they would like to take care of your plants. Anyway, you can always find a safe place for your green pets — a hospital, kindergarten, school, etc.
