PLant Care Information

What kind of soil should I use for my houseplant?

How often should I water my houseplant?

Most plants thrive in well-draining potting soil that contains a mix of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.  Some plants, such as succulents and cacti, require a soil mix that has more sand or grit to improve drainage.

The frequency of watering depends on the type of plant, its size, the season, and the environment it is in.  As a general rule, most plants should be watered when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch.  Over-watering can lead to root rot, while under-watering can cause wilting and stress.

How do I choose the right pot for my houseplant?

The size of the pot should be proportionate to the size of the plant, with enough room for roots to grow.  The pot should have drainage holes to prevent water from pooling at the bottom.  Choose a pot that complements the decor of the room and matches the style of the plant.
