HOW TO CARE FOR INDOOR TROPICALS

Be sure to find out the exact light and watering needs of your plant to help keep it healthy and thriving. Since all plants have different growing requirements, the following is just a general guideline on how to care for indoor tropicals.

 
 

 

 


POTTING

Always use potting soil when planting in containers because it's specially formulated to ensure good drainage and air flow to promote strong root growth in containers.

Most general potting mixes contain a variety of ingredients like wood chips, sphagnum peat moss, compost, perlite, or vermiculite, providng a light and fluffy texture for your plants.


 
 

 

 


LIGHT

One of the most critical factors that impacts a plant's health is light.  Be sure to place your plant where it will receive the right amount light to grow.

All plants have different requirements, so be sure to place it in a location where it will receive the right amount of light to keep it healthy and thriving - full sun, filtered light, or low light. 
 
 


WATERING

Understand the watering needs of your plant! It’s better to under-water rather than over-water.

A general rule of thumb is to water your plants every 1-2 weeks, sometimes more or less depending on the type of plant, size of container, time of year, growing conditions, etc.

It's usually a good idea to feel the soil first and only water if the top is dry to avoid overwatering. There are some exceptions! Be sure to water according to your exact plant’s requirements, for example, snake plants and zz plants require very little water. 

Never let the roots sit in water as that can cause root rot.

Be sure to water according to your plant’s requirements!

 
 

 



 


FEEDING

Feed your plants with fertilizer during the growing season, generally spring and summer.  In the winter, cut back on both feeding and watering.
