Winter Plant Care Tips
The cold, rain and even snows of winter are here for a while. Your indoor, tropical, house plants may begin to struggle. Exotic Plants would like to remind you of a few easy tips to keep your green friends happy. We recommend setting aside a certain day of the week to care for and water your plants. Like Sunday afternoons ... always check in with your plants, most plants require water weekly but some may need an incredibly small amount or no water at all, in the darkness of winter. So ... keep the soil damp, make sure they are getting good light, hold off on feeding or repotting, and keep them away from drafts coming from windows, doors or heating vents. These can all cause dramatic changes in a plant. And remember, they ARE living things, so the dropping of a few extra leaves in winter will give them the energy they need to make it through a rough winter.
