Tips for Maintaining Indoor Plants

One of the best ways for business owners or office managers to enhance the health of their facility and improve employee production is by outfitting their workspace with indoor plants. That said, while indoor plants don’t require as much attention as outdoor vegetation, they do need a bit of maintenance. Here are a few tips that will help ensure your plants flourish indoors.

  • You should regularly prune your plants in order to keep their full, beautiful splendor. If they become overgrown and begin to lose their foliage, it is very hard for them to regrow. Maintain the height and length of the stems and leaves as necessary.
  • Variegated plants and shrubs such as a canna lily require more sunlight than others do. Point being, it is important to be mindful of the type of plants you have in your workspace, and to make sure your provide them with the right amount of natural sunlight. If your area doesn’t have access to much sunlight, then you may want to opt for indoor shrubberies that require little to none.
  • While plants certainly need water to survive, it is very common to kill your plants by overwatering. If the soil is still damp from the last time you watered it, your plant does not need anymore! If you are unsure of how much your plant needs, there are various resources online or you could always leave it to the experts!
  • Do not water your plant with leftover soda, tea or coffee! This is not an ideal way to give your plant the nutrients it needs. This is also a sure-fire way to fill your area with pesky flies. These liquids are filled with sugars that will seep into your plant’s soil to create a breeding ground for fruit flies and other pests. Save yourself the aggravation and the health of your plant by just using water!
