Try these low-light plant tips:


  • Water Wisely: Overwatering is the number one killer of indoor plants. Make sure to let the soil dry out between waterings, and always check the specific care requirements for your chosen plant.
  • Clean Leaves: Dust can accumulate on your plant’s leaves, hindering their ability to photosynthesize. Wipe them gently with a damp cloth to keep them clean and healthy.
  • Watch for Pests: Keep an eye out for any signs of pests like spider mites or mealybugs. Treat them promptly with neem oil or insecticidal soap.
  • Rotate Your Plants: To ensure even growth, rotate your plants every few weeks so they don’t lean toward the light source.
