Fall Into This Indoor Garden Tell-All
It has been said that 30 minutes of gardening a week gives you a healthier, happier and longer life. But, what should you do as the weather grows colder? Not to worry, if you still want to exercise your green thumb through the colder months, I’ve got you covered!
Here are five indoor plants that will satisfy your love for gardening:
Amaryllis is an easy-to-care-for houseplant that can brighten your windowsill, even in the cold of winter!
Starting out as bulbs, growing these beautiful blooms is super simple, and we have tons of unique varieties to choose from in our online store!
How to grow and care for Amaryllis:
Plant your amaryllis bulb in a 6-8″ pot, in good potting soil. Plant it with the pointed end up, and pack the soil gently around it so a third of the bulb remains above the soil.
Place the pot in a spot that receives bright, indirect light and water sparingly until it has grown approximately 2 inches. After that, start watering regularly.
You can expect your Amaryllis to bloom 6-8 weeks after planting, however, some varieties can take as long as 10 weeks!
Do you want a plant that still looks great after 3 weeks without water? How about a plant that not only looks good but cleans the air and thrives on neglect?
This sharp-leafed plant thrives in low light, with little water, and is perfect for even the newest plant parents (it’s loved by experienced plant parents too)!
Pothos comes in many varieties and is a go-to choice for many homes because it is easy to care for and is tolerant of low-lighting.
The bright green leaves will add a bold splash of colour to your indoor garden oasis, and are sure to brighten your space!
If you want your indoor garden to impress, a ficus is the plant for you!
Ficus love bright sunlight and need well-draining soil. Always water with moderation and don’t move it around as it can be sensitive to changing conditions.
This pet-safe, tropical plant is a favourite in our shop and is a great option to grow indoors as they have many features that make them ideal houseplants.
Peperomia comes in a variety of beautiful foliage, and they tolerate a range of growing conditions, making them the perfect addition to an indoor garden.
My favourite is the Watermelon Peperomia – what’s yours?
