Plants are a great living gift to keep in your home during the winter months.
Be sure to know how to adjust indoor plant care during the winter, and your houseplants will keep bringing you joy well into springtime.
For most houseplants, follow these guidelines:
- Keep warm. Put them in a room with a steady temperature of 60-75 degrees.
- Avoid temperature swings. Do not keep them near cold, drafty windows or heat sources like fireplaces or radiators.
- Make sure they get plenty of sunlight.
- Water less and ease up on the fertilizer. Like us, plants slow down in the winter. They will not need as much water, and they may not need any fertilizer at all.
If you want to be a hands-on “pet parent,” wipe down their leaves with a damp cloth.
Since homes can be dry in winter months, your plants may also benefit from a little mist of water or a humidifier.
