General Houseplant Tips:

  • Only plant in pots with good drainage holes. Terra-Cotta pots can help absorb excess water.
  • Make sure to rotate your plants weekly, don’t leave one side getting less light than the other!
  • Use less water in winter months & more in the warmer months. 
  • Some plants are toxic to pets & children, please research plants further before adding them to your home.
