Definition of sweating plants

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Occasionally purchased plants need to be "sweated" to stimulate growth and break dormancy.

When necessary, cover plant roots with very moist sphagnum peat moss and then create a tent over the entire plant, taking special care to ensure good air circulation through the plant material. Check daily for signs of bud swelling or new growth
