Plants around the house not only help clean the air but are also mood uplifting, bringing a bit of the outdoors inside the home…
Houseplants fall into two main groups: foliage and flowering. Foliage plants are selected primarily for the appearance of their leaves, which come in all shades and patterns. Flowering plants are a great alternative to cut flowers and even during non‐flowering periods, are attractive accessories to place in any part of the house.
The amount of light, air, water, warmth, feeding and pruning that each plant requires will vary according to the specific type. Check on the care label before buying. It is useful to have an idea beforehand where the plant is intended to go in the house. For instance, whether the spot gets a lot of natural light and whether the conditions are likely to be more humid, like in the bathroom.
Poor growth: the plant is not getting enough light
Yellowed leaves: it has been over‐watered or may be catching a draught
Brown patchy leaves: the plant is placed in too sunny a position
Drooping leaves: the soil is either too wet or too dry ‐ check watering instructions
Falling leaves: the soil is too dry or the position is either too cold or draughty
Bottom leaves falling: conditions too dry, too warm or the plant is not getting sufficient natural light
Not flowering: caused by either overfeeding or by not getting enough light
