(Summary description)
  Modern people pursue a healthy lifestyle, and qualified families choose to use the balcony space to grow green vegetables by themselves. Just because the balcony conditions are limited, people mostly choose plastic flowerpots to plant, will the vegetables grown in this way be poisonous?

  The reason why people raise such questions is because many plastic products can cause harm to the human body, which makes people have to have related questions about plastic flower pots. To answer this question, let's first take a look at what substances are absorbed in the growth of vegetables. Vegetable roots mainly absorb water and inorganic salts in production, and vegetable roots also absorb amino acids, sodium phytate, nucleotides and other substances, but cannot absorb macromolecules.

       The main component of plastic flower pots is synthetic resin, which has stable chemical properties and cannot be explained, and a small amount of organic matter decomposed cannot be absorbed by vegetable roots. When plastic is burned, dioxin is produced. Although it is carcinogenic to the human body, it cannot be absorbed by vegetable roots. Therefore, vegetables grown in plastic flower pots are not poisonous. However, we cannot use plastic flowerpots to grow vegetables without restrictions, because most of the flowerpots on the market are made of waste plastics, and there will still be harmful substances left. You'd better choose a flowerpot with no odor to grow vegetables.

How to deal with the sunburn of Crassula Arborescens
Crassula Arborescens, is known as Sedum pachyphyllum. It is a succulent shrub of the genus Cyclosaurus of the Crassulaceae family. It is native to tropical Africa and is evergreen all the year round.A flower friend recently asked, "Some leaves of my Crassula Arborescens seem to have dried out in recent days. Are they sunburnt?" What should we do if it gets sunburnt? Is there a good way to deal with it? The following flower information introduces the causes of Crassula Arborescens sunburn and the treatment methods of Crassula Arborescens sunburn, which is only for the reference.   Generally, there are several situations that cause the leaves of Crassula Arborescens to dry, but it is not entirely due to sun exposure. It may be caused by lack of ventilation, too much watering and too much fertilizer.   Treatment of Crassula Arborescens sunburn   1. The suitable temperature for the growth of Crassula Arborescens is 20-30 ℃. Spring and autumn are suitable for growth periods. Shade or place under the shade of trees when it is hot in summer to avoid direct sunlight. When the temperature exceeds 38 ℃, it grows slowly or enters into temporary dormancy.   In winter, it should be put in the greenhouse or in a sunny place indoors. The room temperature should be kept at 7-10 ℃, and the temperature should not be lower than 5 ℃. If it is below 0 ℃, it will be frozen to death. During the growth period, except for the need for shade in hot summer, it should be placed in a sunny place.   2. During the growth period of Crassula Arborescens, water once every 2-3 days, but do not make the soil too wet, let alone water. When it is hot in summer, watering shall be strictly controlled and ventilation shall be strengthened, otherwise it is easy to cause fallen leaves. In winter, water should be reduced, and the pot soil should be slightly dry. Watering gradually decreases in autumn. During outdoor cultivation, it is necessary to avoid rain washing, otherwise excessive water in the root will easily cause root rotting and death.   [Tips] When Crassula Arborescens gets sunburnt, it should first be kept in a light scattering place for a period of time, and then directly bask in the sun. Crassula Arborescens likes loose sandy culture soil, and avoids too wet soil. If the pot soil is too wet, and the ventilation is poor, it is easy to lose leaves. When it is hot in midsummer, Crassula Arborescens is in a semi dormant state. It is OK not to water it for many days. Besides, fertilization should be stopped, and ventilation should be paid attention to to prevent the leaves from becoming sunburnt.
