Plant Tips and Tricks

Identifying Plant Problems

Weak growth and pale foliage are both signs of too much light, lack of fertilizer, or problems with a plant’s roots. If you notice any of these problems, there are simple solutions that could be very helpful.

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.

Put someone in charge

In an office setting, plant care can often go by the wayside if no one takes the responsibility. It is a good idea to designate someone, or a few people, in the office who will take care of watering and maintenance on a regular basis.

Know Your Decor

Contemporary, modern styles go better with plants that have clean lines and slender shapes to them. Victorian decors work well with ferns, while cacti are perfect for southwest styles.
