Healthy Houseplants

Posted on August 22nd, 2019

Houseplants are great! They liven up a space, and even purify the air! But it can sometimes be tricky to take care of indoor plants when each plant has its own needs. The number one thing most people seem to struggle with is probably the most basic – water! Whether it’s too much or not enough, it can cause stress on your plants if conditions aren’t just right. To help keep your plants happy we put together a simple watering guide so you can maintain a healthy and thriving plant.

Below we’ve compiled a list of our most popular houseplants and how often you should be watering. Don’t see your plant listed? Feel free to give us a call, or stop by. We’re here to help!
