How to Care for House Plants over the Winter

How to Care for House Plants over the Winter

Posted by on Jan 3rd 2021

The deeper we get into winter, the more we need to pay attention to our indoor comfort — setting the thermostat, maintaining the humidifier and keeping fuzzy blankets and sweatshirts handy are a few of the simple ways to stay cozy during the colder months. In addition to our own comfort, it’s important to know how to best take care of your indoor houseplants throughout the winter. Here are some tips as the temperatures drop outside.

  1. Give Houseplants Ample Light

Sunlight may be limited during the winter months, but that doesn’t mean your plants are doomed. Relocating your plants to a different area of the home so they can soak up the natural light will help them thrive in a newly darkened environment. When placing them closer to natural light, but be mindful of drafty windows. The cold air will do more harm than good.

  1. Water Less Than Usual

Plants need water to thrive, but they generally don’t need as much during the winter because they grow at a slower rate. Don’t stop watering your plants altogether — research your specific plant to get a better understanding of a potential winter watering schedule.

  1. Pay Attention to Humidity Levels and Room Temperature

Just because you feel your best when the indoor temperature’s set to 70 degrees, doesn’t mean your plants agree. Likewise, a night spent near the fireplace sipping on hot chocolate may sound good to you, but your houseplants won’t react as well to the extra heat. Plants generally want warm to cool temperatures, not blistering heat. Not only can heat damage plants, but it also reduces the humidity in your home. Placing a humidifier near your plants adds moisture back into the air that your HVAC system removes. Keep an eye on your plants and move them around if they aren’t reacting well to their environment.

  1. Find the Perfect Houseplant or Flower Arrangement from Palace Florists

If you tried your best to follow our advice but your green thumb has yet to emerge, don’t worry. You can still take care of something that requires less maintenance. Succulents, for example, are virtually indestructible, even during the winter. Succulents are perfect for those who are dreaming of warmer days filled with sunshine.

With these tips kept in mind, you can maintain any type of flower or greenery during the winter. Try adding some fresh flowers or a few houseplants to your home and see how much better you feel this winter!
