Plant Care

Things to Remember

  • know the names of your plants and know what kind of light & water they prefer

  • trim back any yellowing or dead leaves to maintain health and shape of the plant

  • general rule of thumb is: if you have yellowing leaves you are watering too much and dried dead leaves you are watering too little

  • don't feel like you have to keep a plant forever- it's ok to refresh & start again

  • find the plants you do best with and stick with those. a lot of times there's different varieties of the same general plant
