While we all deserve a much needed break this time of the year, so do our houseplants! Since winter conditions make life much different for even houseplants, they’ll need a little extra attention to stay healthy and growing. During the colder seasons, there is less daylight, lower temperatures, and dryer air, so to keep the growing conditions ideal, pay attention to these areas.
Watering – Always check the plants’ care instructions first and foremost. Then, keep in mind that during the winter, plants typically don’t need quite as much watering.
Fertilization – To encourage active growth for your houseplants, you’ll need to keep them nourished but during the winter, fertilize sparingly. Mainly, focus on fertilizing your plants during the spring and summer.
Keep Everything Clean – Winter is the perfect time to clean your plants. Like anything else in our home, plants also collect dust and need to be cleaned so that they can breathe better!
