Take Care of Your Green Plants on Houseplant Appreciation Day

Houseplant Appreciation Day is today, January 10th, which is a perfect opportunity to make sure all the indoor green plants and houseplants get the love they deserve from you. While we love these beautiful additions to our homes, we may not always know exactly how to take care of them so they keep on providing natural décor. Not all plants were created equal in terms of the sunlight, humidity, water and fertilizer they need to keep thriving. Here is a general overview on some of the various types of plants and the type of care they need: • Ferns like indirect light and moist soil, but there must be good drainage. It helps to add a tray that has been filled with pebbles and water so the fern has water but is not sitting in it. • Green foliage plants are a category that includes many varieties, such as rubber plants, ficus, dracaena, philodendron and more. These plants tend to do better without any sunlight and a moderate amount of water with good drainage for aeration and to avoid root rot. Green foliage plants also do well when fed green plant fertilizer. • Blooming plants, which include varieties like violets,
