Tropical Love - It's Time
It's time to bring all your houseplants indoors if you haven't already. Give them a careful once-over for insects and monitor them weekly.
As a rule I like to recommend having them outside from May 15th to about Sept 15th. Using this time frame is less shocking to tropicals.
While our specialty is outdoor plants here are a few general tips for growing houseplants. *You may need to research information on your own specific varieties.
If you are new to growing houseplants having a routine will help you learn about what each of your plants need. Don't let being afraid of failing stop you from trying.
Having a schedule for caring for your house plants will give you greater success. I choose Sunday to water and care for my houseplants. Sundays just feel a little more relaxed.
Check your plant's light requirements and place it in a good location not too close to heat registers or fireplace heat.
Remember to water a little bit lighter in the winter as your plants aren't growing as actively. Watering too heavily in the winter can make your plants prone to soil gnats.
Give your plants a little love with liquid kelp/liquid Seaweed fertilizer every second week.
We stock specialty indoor soils for repotting your babies.
May your indoor jungle bring you much happiness!
