Caring for Your Indoor Plants

Caring for Your Indoor Plants

Being surrounded by greenery and flowers elevates our sense of well-being and promotes peace and serenity. Therefore, it’s no surprise that we love to fill our homes and office spaces with indoor plants, bringing the outdoors in and enjoying all the benefits that plants bring to our lives.

So, if you are caring for indoor plants for the first time, our helpful guide will provide you with the necessary information to allow your green friends to thrive.


How much light do indoor plants need?

The amount of light really depends on the plants you are growing, so we suggest doing research on the specific plants you are growing. Normally, indoor plants with foliage need roughly 8 hours of light per day where succulents and cacti need continuous, daily sunlight.


How much water should I give my indoor plants?

One of the common reasons that indoor plants die is due to overwatering or underwatering. Keeping the potting soil moist is very important but make sure soil it is not too wet or too dry. Make sure the plant pot has drainage holes in the bottom of the pot.


How should you prune your indoor plants?

There is generally no need to prune your indoor plants however if you notice your plant getting a little tatty, then a very gentle pruning can be done. For blooming plants, you may need to pull away some of the dead flower head from time to time deadheading. This keeps them blooming and prevents potential diseases.


How long will indoor plants live?

On average, an indoor house plant will live from 2-5 years. After that, plants normally stop thriving and it’s best to invest in a new plant.

As you can see, it’s so easy for you accommodate just about any type of plant throughout the year, by creating an environment in your home in which it will thrive!
