Plant Tips and Tricks

Pot Color and Design

A neutral colored pot or container for your plant will show your plant’s colors to the best advantage. By not drowning the plant out with a bright container, the plant will be the first thing people see.

Set your plant budget

Plant prices are across the board. It is important to discuss a budget within your office, and decide how much you plan to spend, and compare that to the amount of plants your plan on purchasing. Plan your purchasing around the level of maintenance you will be able to give to the plant.

Removing spent blossoms

Removing spent blossoms, is the easiest way to keep plants blooming. Annuals especially will benefit from a periodic dead blossom removal.

Sticky House Plant Leaves

Often, sticky leaves is caused by Scale. Scale is an insect that sucks the juices out of plants. The sticky stuff that accumulates around the plant is from insect secretion. Take a look at the undersides of the leaves for tan, black or brown bumps. Control Scale by suffocating the insect. A safe horticultural oil will do the trick.
