Lunar calendar of indoor plants for a year
The phases of the moon affect many terrestrial processes. The moon controls both the world’s oceans and the life of each individual. On plants, it also has its effect.
Therefore, lunar calendars help to care for indoor flowers in the best way.
The growth phase of the moon is favorable for almost all types of work in which the caring florist is engaged. This time is considered good for planting: you can sow the seeds, plant the bulbs and tubers, or put the cuttings of plants in the water so that they give roots.
Other types of home flower care are performed on the Waning Moon. Usually at this time, the energy of the night luminary is declining, so the lunar calendar advises taking on matters in which the plant needs rest: collect seeds, remove excess parts of the flower, form it, cutting off excess shears or prepare flower tubers for storage. Transplanting flowers is also better when the moon is decreasing, but at the end of the descending phase, so that after a couple of days of respite, the plant grows along with the growing moon.
According to the lunar calendar, the year the moon will grow in the following time periods:
- January — from 11 to 23;
- February — from 9 to 21;
- March — from 10 to 22;
- April — from 8 to 21;
- May — from 7 to 21;
The descending moon will be on the following dates of the year:
- January from 1 to 9 and from 25 to 31;
- February — from 1 to 7 and from 23 to 29;
- March — from 1 to 8 and from 24 to 31;
- April, from 1 to 6 and from 23 to 30;

The days missed in each month are Full Moon and New Moon, transitional stages in which it is better not to take on planting work from scratch, but to be engaged in preventive actions: leaving, spraying, loosening and tying up the stems if necessary. In the Full Moon, it is customary to feed the plant so that it will not be exhausted by the decreasing energy of the Moon.
