Tips for House Plants
All houseplants require proper light, humidity, water and food, but what's great for one plant might be deadly for another.
By learning your plant's light requirements you can match its needs with a window that provides the proper exposure. Plants needing high light prefer an unobstructed east, south or west window. Plants needing medium light prefer light levels within 10 feet of a sunny window. Plants needing low light prefer a northern or shaded window.
To boost humidity, set plant containers on trays filled with pebbles and water - but don't let the pots themselves sit in the water. It also helps to group plants together.
Add tepid water until it drains through the hole in the bottom of the pot and shows in the saucer. This ensures that the entire root area receives a thorough soaking. The roots need air, too, so be sure to empty the saucer twenty minutes later.
Feed Plants monthly according to fertilizer package directions or twice a month at half the recommended rate. Do not fertilize plants from September to April unless they're under artificial lights.
Bringing Home A New Plant
Expect your plant to drop a few leaves as it adjusts to its surroundings. Hold back feeding because the nutrients in potting soil will be adequate for at least six months. Also, isolate arrivals for a few weeks to make sure they are not hiding insects.
