Indoor Plants Tips + Tricks

Indoor Plants are tricky, tricky! They thrive in an entirely different environment than outdoor plants and require a special kind of care to grow successfully.  Life inside can vary depending on whether you have a ton of windows, keep your heater on, live in a humid area, or even cook frequently. Luckily, our staff knows every tip + trick to steer you in the right direction in order to keep indoor plants healthy (and alive); starting with the most important basics.

1 // Decide on where you will be placing your indoor plant. Location is key! Got a plant that always dies in the same spot? It may be because the conditions aren't fit for that species.  Each indoor plant has its own needs that can only be accommodated in a certain environment.

2 // Lighting is everything, it's one of the key components that help sustain a plants life.  Two plants that may be in the same family can need entirely different exposure. A plant's need for light can vary from optimum exposure to direct light, to an extremely shady environment and everywhere in between.

3 // Give your plants a quick check up before watering. Use your finger to press into the soil, if it is still damp, no need to water! A common mistake is overwatering indoor plants, which retain water in different ways depending on which environment they thrive in.

Indoor plants are sensitive and a tad bit tricky, but worth the time (and beauty!) if you do a bit of research. We hope our Basic Tips + Tricks expanded your knowledge and inspired you to branch out in the world of indoor plants!
