Follow these simple pointers and become a seasoned plant parent in no time!

  1. Adequate Light - Make sure that the plants you choose will receive the adequate amount of light that they require. Most plants thrive in bright, indirect sunlight, but some can also tolerate low light environments. If the light is too intense and direct, consider adding a sheer curtain to soften the light.

  2. Match Your Schedule- Pick plants that match your schedule. Being a working plant parent isn’t easy! Some plants require regular attention and care, like misting and frequent watering, while others will do just fine between your regular trips.

  3. Quench Their Thirst- The rule of thumb when watering houseplants is to stick your finger into the soil to see if it’s dry. You could follow a watering schedule, but each plant requires a different amount of water every day. Overwatering your plants causes root rot.

  4. Recreate Their Native Environment- The best way to ensure that your plants thrive is to create a mini-ecosystem that mimics their native environment, using water, light, humidity, and temperature. If the plant is native to rainforests, water them frequently, maintain high humidity levels, and keep warm.

  5. Find the Best-Fitting Pot- The soil for each planter should be replaced every 12 to 18 months as its nutrients are slowly consumed. At that point, the plant might be too big for its current planter. So don’t hesitate to find the plant a better fit. When considering planters, opt for one with good drainage, a grow pot inside the planter, or rocks at the bottom to create crevices for the water to flow into.
