Tips on plant care

Here are some useful tips for taking care of your houseplants:

  • Watering: Each plant has different watering needs, so it's important to understand how much water your specific plant requires. Overwatering can be just as detrimental as under-watering. A good rule of thumb is to wait until the top inch of soil is dry before watering.
  • Light: Different plants require different levels of light. Some plants need direct sunlight, while others do better in partial or full shade. Consult our knowledgeable staff about your plant's particular lighting needs and place it accordingly.
  • Humidity: Most houseplants come from tropical areas and prefer high humidity. If your home is dry, consider using a humidifier or placing a tray of water near your plants to boost the humidity.
  • Soil: Quality soil is essential for houseplants to thrive. Use a well-draining potting mix that is appropriate for your plant's needs.
  • Fertilizer: Most houseplants benefit from frequent fertilization. Be sure to use a fertilizer that is appropriate for your plant's specific needs. Our staff is always available to provide advice.
  • Pruning: Prune your plants as necessary to encourage new growth and maintain their shape.

Remember that every plant is unique, so it's crucial to research the specific needs of each plant you bring into your home. If you're unsure about how to care for a particular plant, don't hesitate to ask our staff for advice.

Gift a plant!

Houseplants can make a perfect gift for someone who loves to decorate their home. They add colour and life and also offer various health benefits. When selecting a houseplant, consider the recipient's lifestyle and their home conditions, and choose a plant that fits their level of experience. Succulents and cacti are great low-maintenance options, and a propagation kit is an excellent activity for those who love to experiment. Wall art and unique mirrors can add a touch of boho style to any space and make for great accent pieces.
