After applying the proper solution, you should start to see improvement in the health of your plant in about a week or two.
Other Winter Plant Care tips to keep in mind:
- Most houseplants are tropical and prefer temperatures between 65° F and 75° F during the day and about 10 degrees cooler at night.
- For many plants, temperatures below 50° F can cause problems.
- Place plants in bright windows for winter. Choose windows that get the longest and brightest amount of sun per day, but avoid placing too close for leaves to touch the window or in any generally drafty area. Some plants are extra ideal for windowsills!
- If temps will dip below freezing outdoors and plants are close to the window, don’t be afraid to drape them with a light cloth for protection overnight.
- Occasionally mist plants to wash dust from their leaves, so they can make maximum use of available light.
- And remember – the easiest way to re-pot your plants is to bring them to our greenhouse and we’ll re-pot them for you!
My Pro Tip: If you have tried everything and your plant’s condition is not improving, we welcome your Winter Plant Care questions. Keep in mind, most plants are tropical in origin and they may just need more humidity than naturally occurs in your home. Try a humidifier in the same room as your plants or as an alternative, any of these common house plants will thrive in the bathroom with steam treatments from your daily showers:
Aloe Vera, Bamboo, Begonia, Boston Fern, Dieffenbachia, Dracaena, Hibiscus, Ivy, Peace Lilly, Orchids, Philodendron, Pothos, Snake Plant, Spider Plant, ZZ Plant.
Bring them in and turn your bath into a spa-like environment!
