Aim to keep your plants in a warm environment with some air circulation. The goal is to get as close to creating their natural habitat as possible. Near windows with good sunlight is best. Keep plants away from cold drafts in the winter. If your plant is in a sunny location, it is important to rotate regularly for even growth. About 1/4 turn once a week. Use a damp cloth to wipe down the leaves of your houseplant occasionally to prevent
buildup and dust. Trim dead materials off to prevent bacteria and fungus. Once your plant has outgrown your container you should repot into a container 1-2” bigger in diameter than your previous pot.
If you planted in a container without drainage holes, you will want to be careful not to overwater. You don’t want the water to collect at the bottom and rot the roots. Water slow and sparingly so that the water gets evenly distributed through the soil without pooling at the bottom. Plants do NOT like to have “wet feet”(roots). Most plants would rather be slightly dry than soaking wet. Start with watering 1-2 times a week. Give about 1/2 cup of lukewarm water slowly. Also, a light misting from a spray bottle every few days is usually beneficial. Check soil every few days to see how fast it is drying out. Some types of plants want more water, and some less. Feel the soil before watering. If the soil is dry, then water. If damp, then hold off. Adjust water frequency and amount as needed. Seasons changing will affect how long you should wait between waterings. Get to know your plant’s needs by checking on it every few days
Light is just as important as water for houseplants! The more light the better! The soil needs to dry out properly when planting in containers without drainage holes, and needs bright light to do so. Houseplants typically require 4-6 hours of light a day. Some like a little less. Depending on the type of plant, they might like bright direct light, or indirect filtered light. If they are in a bright sunny spot they may need more frequent watering since they will be drying out faster!
Once a month during their growing season (spring and summer months) we recommend using an organic fertilizer. Organic fertilizer is best for houseplants that are planted in containers without drainage holes. If using other fertilizers, the salt may collect in your container and cause chemical burn. Use half of the recommended dose of plant food. Overfeeding makes plants susceptible to insects and disease.
