If you’d like to propagate your ZZ Plant, simply take a clean pair of garden shears and snip off a stalk that has a couple of leaves on it and place it in a vessel of water. (We like to repurpose glass containers around the house.) Once the cuttings have sprouted roots that are a few inches long, they’re ready to be planted in their own pot of soil.

All About The Pothos Plant

All About The Pothos Plant

For a new plant parent, getting started can sometimes seem challenging if you’re not well versed with plant care. So, we’ve decided to start a new blog series diving deep into each individual plants’ care that we have. Starting off with one of the easiest houseplants we can think of- The Pothos.

 

The Pothos, or ‘Devil’s Ivy’ is a very forgiving plant, so long as you remember to water it every few days or so. This tropical aroid vine with smooth and leathery heart-shaped leaves are native to Southeast Asia, and can tolerate low light conditions and periods of drought. It also happens to be one of the easiest plants to propagate and make new plants to share with friends and family!


Habitat Needs


This trailing plant is best suspended, allowing it to grow vertically. Unlike an Ivy Plant, The Pothos will not attach its vines to any walls, trellises, etc. however, using hooks to hold its vines will help it grow around windows and up walls. Always remember to keep your plant in a pot that has drainage holes for proper watering.

Lighting Needs


The Pothos is a lover of bright, indirect sunlight. This means close to a window but not directly in the sun. If this plant is left in the sun rays, it can cause the leaves to scorch. If your plant has variegation, it can lose its patterns if it doesn’t get enough sunlight. This may seem confusing, but just remember, no direct sunlight and your plant will be happy.


Watering Needs


Although this plant derives from tropical climates, it prefers for its soil to be completely dried out in between waterings. We recommend doing the finger test- stick your finger in the top of the soil about 1-2” down and if the soil isn’t damp, time for a watering! Overwatering this plant can cause the roots to rot. Another sign of needing water is if the leaves start to droop. Just don’t let the leaves turn brown.


Temperature Needs


When considering the temperature needed for this plant, do consider the tropical climates it derived from. The Pothos Plant prefers 65-75 degrees fahrenheit and can withstand temperatures down to 50 degrees. This plant loves humidity, so adding a humidifier near the plant if living in drier climates can help this plant thrive. 


Nutrient Needs


This plant is a very easy plant in regards to nutrients. An all-purpose liquid fertilizer added to its soil twice or more a year will encourage growth. 

 

How to Propagate

If you’d like to propagate yout Pothos, simply take a clean pair of garden shears and snip off a few legs of the Pothos near the ‘nodes’ and place in a vessel of water. (We like to repurpose glass containers around the house.) Once the cuttings have sprouted roots that are a few inches long, they’re ready to be planted in their own pot of soil.

House Plants That Do Well In Warm Weather

House Plants That Do Well In Warm Weather

As we start to enter the middle of Summer, the temperature is rising and the livelihood of some house plants are thriving. We’ve compiled a list of a few of our favorite plants that do well during the warmer months.

Croton Petra

To keep it bright and cheery, make sure the soil is thoroughly dry between watering as too much water will cause wilting. Use a general fertilizer in a well-draining pot and do not feed in fall and winter. Provide adequate sunlight for 4-6 hours per day. Thrives in bright filtered light.

ZZ Plant

Due to its hardy nature, water sparingly as it can easily be overwatered, and keep out of direct sunlight to avoid scorching their leaves. Medium to bright indirect or filtered light. Maintain between 60-90F

Spider Plant

Spider plants are very hardy and will survive in less than perfect conditions. Although spider plants prefer bright light, they tend to scorch in direct sunlight, and can also tolerate low-light conditions.

Pothos

Give your pothos a drink when the leaves start to droop or wilt, but be sure not to allow roots to get soggy as that can lead to root rot. Although tolerant of all indirect light levels ranging from low to bright, the pothos will be fullest, most colorful, and grow fastest in medium to bright light.

Laurentii

 

Water once every 3-4 weeks and allow the soil to dry out completely between watering. Place in low to bright indirect or filtered light and maintain a temperature between 60-90F. Fertilize during the growing season with an all-purpose plant food.

Chinese Evergreen

Water thoroughly, but allow the soil to dry out between waterings Do not allow the lower soil (bottom of the pot where roots reside) to remain wet as this may cause root rot.

Well, not all house plants are the same and require different amounts of lighting to do their best. Today we’ll be sharing a few of our favorite plants that thrive in bright light.  


Snake Plant

 

The Sansevieria Laurentii, or commonly known as the Snake Plant is out top rated bright light plant because of its many favorable qualities. Not only can this house plant tolerate lots of light, it is drought-tolerant and hard to kill. The Snake Plant has amazing air-purifying qualities and is one of the few to continue to produce oxygen at night, rather than releasing carbon dioxide like other plants.

If you’re someone that likes more colorful plants or just looking to add something bright and cheery to your space, the Croton Petra is the perfect match for you. This plant maintains its spectacular colors when it’s in bright light. Being quite easy to care for, the Croton Petra only needs to be watered when the soil is dried out. 


Ponytail Palm

 

The Ponytail Palm is a fan favorite because of its unique look. Otherwise known as the “Elephant’s Foot” this plant has a trunk that acts as a reservoir to hold water, making it a more drought-tolerant plant. While it can sustain in low light conditions, the Ponytail Palm does its best in bright light. Did we mention that it also comes in a 4-inch grow pot and is the perfect desktop addition?


Trailing Jade

 

A succulent on our list is the Trailing Jade. This plant comes with a hanger that can easily be attached to a hook on a balcony, ceiling or somewhere in your garden. Being one of the easiest plants on this list, the Jade Plant only needs to be watered when the soil dries out and doesn’t require any special care. The Jade Plant also has great air purifying qualities and is a must-have in our opinion.


Moneytree Plant

 

The Moneytree Plant is famously known for being a symbol of good luck and used quite a lot in Feng Shui practices. This plant’s unique braided stem and vibrant green leaves enjoy bright light and only needs to be watered once every one to two weeks.
