Indoor plants can transform your home or workspace into a verdant oasis, breathing life and color into every corner. Not only do they enhance the aesthetic appeal, but they also purify the air, create a calming ambiance, and have been shown to improve mood and productivity. But just like any living being, plants need proper care to thrive. Welcome to our ultimate guide to indoor plant care!
The ABCs of Indoor Plant Care
For plant care, basics start with understanding the specific needs of your plants. Some need a lot of sunlight, while others can manage with less. Similarly, watering requirements also vary. Overwatering is a common mistake. Water your plants only when the top inch of soil is dry to avoid root rot. Our plant collection comes with care instructions for each species, ensuring you'll have all the info you need to keep your indoor garden thriving.
Light: The Lifeline
Different plants have varying light needs, some preferring bright, indirect light, while others grow best in low-light conditions. Remember, too much direct sunlight can cause leaves to scorch.
Water: Less is More
Too much love, in this case, water, can be harmful. Overwatering is a common cause of indoor plant demise. A good rule of thumb for plant care is to water only when the soil feels dry to the touch.
Temperature and Humidity
Indoor plants usually prefer temperatures between 65-75°F during the day and a drop of about 10 degrees at night. Remember to keep plants away from drafts, heaters, and air conditioners. Some plants also appreciate a bit of humidity. Placing a tray of water near your plants can help provide extra moisture.
Making Your Indoor Plants Flourish
Keeping plants alive is one thing, but helping them flourish is another. Here are some tips to help your green buddies thrive.
Ensure you choose the right vase arrangement or pot with proper drainage. Too small pots can cramp roots and stunt growth. On the other hand, too large pots can lead to root rot due to excessive moisture.
Feeding Your Plants
Indoor plants need nutrients to grow healthy and strong. Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer and follow the instructions on the package.
Pruning helps promote growth by removing dead or diseased parts of the plant. Our gift box collection includes some handy pruning tools.
Caring for Specific Plants
Understanding your plant's individual needs is key. From roses that enjoy bright light to orchids that require specific humidity, understanding their needs can make a world of difference. Visit our rose or orchids collection to find more details.
