Lesson Three: How to Train Your Snapdragon Study Guide
Some plants like the shade & others can't stand being in the sunlight. When planting, consider how much an area gets sunlight. Some plants can't stand morning rays, but will rely on the evening sunlight. Some plants can't handle being drowned in water. When watering, consider the areas drainage. If using a potted plant, make sure it has drainage holes. If it doesn't, water the plant less often.
If the plant is outside, check if the soil is fine or rocky before watering. Different lands have different nutrient levels. It can be fine, sandy, rocky, or rich. The pH range is important; anything higher than seven is basic soil & anything lower than seven is acidic soil. Plants love being sung to. Roses enjoy love songs, vines enjoy jazz, fall/winter flowers enjoy songs with sad lyrics, trees enjoy older songs, bushes enjoy sassy songs, & dangerous plants enjoy comedic songs.
The pH Detection Charm
Plants such as trees & cacti have long lifespans. The plant starts as a seed, grows as sprouts, & matures. If a plant is too big for the pot, you will need to repot it in a larger pot. Gaviat Roots will eat two thirds less than previously.

⊱ Most plants like the mildly acidic to neutral range due to the minerals.
⊱ The amount of water will increase or decrease, but sunlight will stay the same.
⊱ Plants such as pansies or peas have short lifespans.
