Plant Tips and Tricks

Yellowing Leaves

Yellowing and dropping leaves are often a result of poor light, low temperatures, pollution or even pests. If you spot yellowing leaves on your plant look for other signs of these problems.

Less is sometimes more

It is easy to assume that the more fertilizer a plant has the better it will grow; this however, could not be further from the truth. Over fertilization of your plant’s soil can damage your plant to the point of no return. If this were to occur, by accident, you can attempt to dissolve the fertilizer with clear water. Flush your plant out completely three or four times in half hour increments, and hopefully the plant won’t be lost.

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.

Protecting the Bamboo Palm from spider mites

Keeping the Bamboo Palm in hot, dry environments will encourage spider mite infestations. Medium light is best with Eastern or Northern exposure to natural light, supplemented with fluorescent or incandescent artificial light in the office.
