Dale K. offers his tips for indoor plant care as we embark on a long winter ahead – unless, of course, you'd prefer to look at white, brown and grey until spring arrives.
What does the light requirement mean on your plant's tag?
Direct light: 6+ hours
Moderate: 4+ hours
Indirect: No direct sun
Low light: Minimal light
-Find a plate with indents to collect water from beneath the plant, ensuring the water seeps out
-Water until the plant begins to deposit water
-Empty the dish after a day or two of excess water
-Use a decorative watering can to leave out and remind you to water your plants
If the pot is breaking or the roots are escaping, go up a pot size so the old pot fits snugly into the new pot
Spray for bugs or sprinkle granules atop the soil
Dale says don't use a leaf shine spray, wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust
