Plant Tips and Tricks

Soil Dryness or Excessive Fertilizing

Brown leaf tips or margins are a sign of soil dryness or excessive fertilizing. Keep on the look out for these signs and adjust your watering and fertilizing accordingly.

Know the Temperature and Ventilation

When you have your plants in an office setting it is crucial to be aware of the temperature of the room in which the plant is located.  The ideal temperature for an indoor plant is between 60 and 75 degrees F. It is key to keep your plant away from hot or cold drafts, and warm appliances. It is important to have good ventilation for your plant too. If your room’s ventilation is lacking, a small fan set on low is all your plant needs.
