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!

How Pinteresting...

There's no doubt about it, we seriously love Pinterest! When we get stuck in a rut and are reaching for inspiration to push us past our creative block, Pinterest is our go-to. Our team uses this photo-based platform to collect ideas and stimulate our often stubborn right side of the brain; always keeping us on our toes and pushing us ahead of the game.

So, what exactly are we pinning? We have a good amount of boards and are constantly pinning everything from dark, bohemian home vignettes to beautiful landscape design with a mod twist.  Check out a few of the things we've been quite pinterested in lately! howpin_outdoor With Spring in full swing and Summer just around the corner, we couldn't be more excited to move from our cold, Winter-laden caves to the sunny & warm outdoors. We're more than ready to celebrate beautiful garden blooms and sit outside to enjoy our patios and outdoor spaces.

howpin_wornneutrals A bit of age, a bit of wear, and lots of gorgeous neutral shades. Imperfect imperfections are what capture our attention, and we're so in love with the characteristic a bit (maybe more like a ton) of aging can bring to a piece.

howpin_baskets Potted plants & trees make astounding pieces when placed in pottery, but we like to break away from the norm. Baskets are piling up on our radar, and we are captivated by the essence a a French basket can bring!

What are you captivated by on Pinterest? Don't forget to come pin with us!
