Over the past year or so, I’ve become increasingly obsessed with both plants and flowers. From succulents to peonies to fiddle leaf fig trees, I love it all and cannot get enough. If you don’t believe me, just take a peak at my Pinterest boards…
With this obsession has come some trial and error as I’ve figured out what greenery looks best in my home, as well as how to care for each of them. While every plant is different, here are some general tips that have helped me to keep my plants alive for several months now.
Where to place. Most indoor plants thrive best under indirect sunlight, so try not to place your plants directly under a window. I have both of my large plants behind chairs that are placed near a window. That way, they’re close enough to the sun without being fried by it.
How often to water. I water all of my plants every Saturday morning when I wake up. Typically speaking, that is enough water for them. However, if you live in a really warm climate, then I’d recommend feeling the soil to be sure. If the soil is very dry, the plant needs more water!
When to trim back. Your plant may brown in some spots, and that’s completely normal. You can go ahead and trim that part of it off to ensure it doesn’t affect the rest of the plant.
