Plant Tips and Tricks

Ideal Office Plants

Rooms that are used for mental stimulation, such as an office, should contain the more spiky or spiny plants. Consider plants such as snake plants, palms, aloe, and yuccas for these rooms

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.

Leaf Spots, Blotches, and Blemishes

Spots, blotches, or blemishes on the leaves of your plant come from a variety of sources. Intense light causes sunburn on your plant, causing the leaves to blister. Make sure you know what level of sunlight your plant requires to avoid over exposure. Temperatures below 50 degrees F also cause spotting on your plant. Spray from chemicals and over watering are also causes for spots and blemishes. Keeping your plant on a strict watering schedule is an easy way to avoid that problem.
