Welcome to the lush world of houseplant care, where greenery thrives and indoor spaces are transformed into vibrant sanctuaries! We dive into general care for these green beauties. While every plant is different, there are some general guidelines you can follow to start.
  1. Water your plants regularly but be careful not to overwater them. The exact frequency will depend on the type of plant, the size of the pot, and the humidity and temperature in your home. Plants generally grow faster during the warm seasons and slower during the cold. The slow growth during winter means you are likely to not need to water as much so it is important to check the water levels often.
  2. Fertilize your plants on a regular basis in the spring and summer in order to recharge the nutrients that may have been depleted. Most houseplants will benefit from being fertilized every month or so, but be sure to follow the recommendations on the fertilizer package or for the specific plant.
  3. Prune yellowing or dead leaves to maintain their shape and encourage new growth. Use sharp pruning shears or scissors to trim off dead or diseased branches, and to shape the plants leaves as needed.
  4. Repot your plants if they outgrow their current containers. You can usually tell if the roots are growing out or filling up the pot, but be aware that some plants prefer to take up more space than others. Choose a pot that is 1-2 inches larger than the current pot and be sure to use a good quality potting soil.
  5. Place your plants in a location where they will receive the right amount of light. Different plants have different light requirements, so be sure to research the specific needs of yours. Though, most plants love as much light as you can give them, so long as it isn’t full/direct sun (they can get sunburnt too).
  6. Keep an eye out for pests, such as aphids, spider mites, and mealybugs, which can damage your plants. If you do spot any pests, try to remove them by hand or use an appropriate pest control product.
  7. Be sure to check your plants regularly for signs of stress, such as yellowing leaves or wilting, and take action to address any problems as soon as possible.
