How to keep house plants healthy
Does the habitat where the house plant lives match the plant’s characteristics?
House plants thrive when you find a suitable spot for it to live. Consider these four questions about where to display your indoor plant:
- How much light does the indoor plant get throughout the day and across the seasons?
- What is the temperature of the space over the year, meaning does the room get overly hot or cold in certain times of the year?
- Will the house plant be exposed to draughts, air conditioning or heating?
- How much humidity will the indoor plant be subjected to?
To keep house plants healthy you need to match the plant with the spot you want to display them. For example, a plant that loves heat and light will thrive in an open living sun-room.
