Caring for plans can be sacred time to just relax and be. Watering and light play a big part in the growth and life of your plants. Don't be intimidated. Enjoy the process.

SHARK FIN

Light: Snake plants can handle a wide range of light. The more light they get the faster they can grow. It is just important to keep them out of direct sunlight. 

Watering: Water your plant sparingly, meaning once every 2 - 3 weeks. Overwatering is a common way to kill Snake plants. It is good to check the moisture of the soil. Do not water if the soil is still moist. Avoid pouring the water inside the ring of leaves, aim for the soil at the base of the plant.

BIRD'S NEST FIRN

Light: Although most ferns grow in moist shady places like forest floors, this does not mean that they need no light. Their normal situation in the wild is dappled light, and if the light level in the home is too low, you will see poor growth and yellowing fronds. Give your ferns a position near a window that gets morning or late afternoon sun, and keep the ferns away from strong sunlight, especially during the summer. Direct sunlight will make them lose their leaves or turn their fronds yellow. You can keep your ferns in dim light as long as you give them regular breaks in bright light. They can be given artificial light, but this should be from a special gardening bulb or a fluorescent strip. Ordinary light bulbs generate too much heat.

 

Water: Most ferns like evenly moist soil with regular waterings. Allowing the soil to dry out between waterings stresses these plants. Bushy ferns can be difficult to water. Try using a watering can with a long spout to direct the water to the center of the plant. Water generously, until it drains out of the bottom of the pot.

CHINESE EVERGREEN

Light: Chinese evergreen plants will thrive in low to bright, indirect light. Different varieties have slightly different light needs, however, and in general, the darker the leaves and stalk, the more tolerant the plant is of low light. For all varieties, avoid full sun, which can scorch the leaves.

 

Water: Plant in well-draining soil in a pot with drainage holes. Water well, then let the top two inches of soil dry out before watering again. In dimmer lighting conditions, let the soil dry out more before watering again.

DIEFFENBACHIA DUMBO CANE 

Lighting: Dumb Cane (Dieffenbachias) will sunburn if they get any direct sun at all, and the leaves will yellow and curl. The plant does better in a low light environment.

 

Water: Plant the dumbo cane in well-draining soil and water lightly, keeping the soil consistently moist, but not soggy. Check the soil to make sure it is dry an inch down before watering the dieffenbachia plant.

DRACAENA DEREMENSIS LEMON SURPRISE

Lighting: Filtered indoor light (such as through a sheer curtain in front of a sunny window) or a semi-shade spot is an ideal location. Never place a dracaena plant in direct sun, as the rays will scorch its foliage.

 

Water: Keep your Dracaena hydrated by misting the leaves with water and keeping the soil lightly misted. Always allow the topsoil to dry out before watering. Drooping or yellowing leaves could indicate over-watering or poor drainage.

FICUS ELASTICA RUBBER

Light: Place the Ficus near a window in a room that gets bright light in the summer with more moderate light in the winter. Turn the plant occasionally so all the growth does not occur on one side.

Water: Water weekly during the summer with room-temperature water. Add water until it drains from the bottom of the pot. Discard the excess water if it flows into a container. Adjust the watering for your plant. Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. If the leaves turn yellow and begin to drop, you may need to increase or decrease the amount of water. Check the root ball. If the roots are soggy water the plant less often. If they are dry, increase watering. Humidity and light levels affect the amount of water needed.

FICUS FIDDLE LEAF FIG

Light: Bright, filtered light is best. Direct afternoon sun can burn the foliage, but less than one hour is okay. Bright light is preferred and some morning sun will help keep your Fiddle Leaf Fig looking good. Hold up a white piece of paper in the middle of the day and put your hand in front of it. Can you see a shadow? A faint shadow is good, a defined shadow is even better, no shadow is too dark. Not enough light? Artificial light can help or try to move your plant to a sunnier area.

Water: Resist the urge to over water! Water once a week and let drain completely. Feed with Fiddle Leaf Fig Plant Food every time you water all year long.

PEPEROMIA MARBLE

Light: Peperomia plants grow well in the bright indirect light provided by a west or east-facing window. These plants even grow under fluorescent lights. Insufficient light causes the slow-growing peperomia plant to stop growing altogether. Direct sunlight burns the leaves.

Water: Allow the top 50% of the soil to dry out before you water. Over-watering, resulting in root-rot, is the main cause of serious peperomia plant problems. It’s best to water these plants from the bottom. This technique keeps the leaves dry and helps prevent plant diseases. The thick leaves of peperomia plants hold water and allow the plant to withstand long periods without moisture.

PHILODENDRON MONSTERA

Light: The plants grow best in medium or bright-light spots, but tolerate low light exceedingly well. 

Water: Water philodendrons enough when the soil surface dries. They're tough enough plants they don't mind if you forget to water them now and again. Just take care not to overwater your philodendrons. They will rot if they're kept too wet.

POTHOS (VARIOUS)

Light: While pothos do well in a variety of light conditions and can even tolerate low light, moderate indoor light is ideal. Outdoors they can be grown in shade to partial shade. Wherever you decide to display your pothos, just be sure to avoid direct sunlight. A highly variegated pothos may lose its variegation when placed in low-light conditions. Since only the green parts of the leaves can make energy, the leaves will compensate for the lack of light by turning greener. Pale leaves that turn yellowish in color could indicate that your plant is getting too much light. 

Water: Keep soil moist but be careful not to overwater. Easier said than done, right? Pothos do best when their soil can dry out between watering. To achieve this watering technique, allow only the top two inches to dry being sure that the roots are still moist. If the leaves are wilting or turning brown, you should water the plant more often. If the leaves are yellow, you may be watering it too much. Excessive watering may cause root rot.

Light: Snake plants can handle a wide range of light. The more light they get the faster they can grow. It is just important to keep them out of direct sunlight.

 

Watering: Water your plant sparingly, meaning once every 2 - 3 weeks. Overwatering is a common way to kill Snake plants. It is good to check the moisture of the soil. Do not water if the soil is still moist. Avoid pouring the water inside the ring of leaves, aim for the soil at the base of the plant.

SNAKE SANSEVIERA

Light: Snake plants can handle a wide range of light. The more light they get the faster they can grow. It is just important to keep them out of direct sunlight.

 

Watering: Water your plant sparingly, meaning once every 2 - 3 weeks. Overwatering is a common way to kill Snake plants. It is good to check the moisture of the soil. Do not water if the soil is still moist. Avoid pouring the water inside the ring of leaves, aim for the soil at the base of the plant.

SPIDER

Lighting: Generally speaking, more sun will produce more pronounced variegation in striped varieties and darker green in solid varieties. Too much blazing, direct sunlight can be detrimental and will tend to burn the leaves.

 

Water: When you water your spider plant, soak the soil evenly and generously, but then wait a while until you water it again. These plants like to have the soil dry out a little between watering because the roots tend to hold a lot of water, which can cause root rot if the plant is overwatered.

ZAMIOCULCAS ZAMIIFOLIA ZZ 

Lighting: The ZZ plant does great in low light areas but ideally likes bright, indirect sunlight. Keep the plant away from hot direct sunlight as the sun can scorch the leaves. This plants light tolerance makes it an ideal plan for low light offices or bathrooms.

Water: The ZZ plant does better with less water. Water the plant only when the soil has dried out. If you water this plant too much you may find the leaves start yellowing.
