Plant Tips and Tricks

Little Perlite Puffs

Surely you’ve wondered what those little white puffs are that you always see mixed in with potting soil. Those are called Perlite, and are actually pieces of expanded volcanic rock with thousand of tiny air pockets. These pockets take up and release water quickly helping to regulate the water, and drainage.

No plants on the window

Even though it may seem like a good idea, don't place your plants on a windowsill during the winter. The extreme temperature swings — the sun's heat during the day and the cold at night — can be hazardous to your plants health.

Improve your Wintertime air quality.

Indoor air quality in the Winter can be more toxic because the windows and doors are kept closed during the day. Adding plants to your workspace is an effective and relatively cheap way to improve the air quality and bring more energy to the office.
