House plants are absolutely gorgeous and add so much to any room they’re in! Like any plant, THEY NEED WATER. All house plants have slightly different watering requirements, depending on how they’re grown and changes in plant growth through the seasons. It’s best to water your house plant as needed rather than by a set schedule.

In general, plants in well-drained soil in an appropriate-size container should be watered when the top 1/2 to 1 inch of soil feels dry. FYI, flowering plants usually need slightly more.

Overwatering is one of the most common causes of house plant death, which nobody wants! If you’re not sure how much to water your house plant, rather err on the dry side over too much moisture.

Additionally, almost all house plants look better after regular cleaning. Dust collects on leaves, so it’s advisable to wash them with a gentle shower of room-temperature water or a soft brush if they have hairy leaves. For plants with smooth leaves, you can also use a cloth to gently wipe away any dust that collects on the leaves. Not only does this improve your plant’s appearance, but it’ll actually help it to soak up more light.

Simple steps to take care of your beautiful house plants! Enjoy 🥰
