Cleaning Leaves: Be sure to remove any build up of dust or household debris. We recommend checking the leaves at least once a month.
Fertilizer: Most houseplants can be fed with organic fertilizer during the active growing months of spring and summer for an extra boost. Liquid or slow release fertilizer are best for indoor plants. Watch for browning leaf tips as a sign of over-fertilizing.
Repotting: Most plants won't mind being a little root bound, and some actually prefer it. Always use fresh soil when repotting your plants. Fast growing plants in smaller pots will need repotting every 12 months, and slow growing plants or larger specimens won't require a bigger pot more than every 18-24 months.
