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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
