3 Things to Do Now

house plant care

  1. Repot. Spring is the best time to repot most plants because they're starting their most vigorous time of growth. If roots are growing out of the container's drainage holes, give them a bit more space. Follow these steps for repotting house plants.

  2. Tidy up. Cut off any dead leaves or flowers. Clean dust off leaves to give plants the light they need for photosynthesis.

  3. Feed your plant. Increased daylight will make indoor plants grow faster. If you stopped fertilizing your plants for the winter, it's time to start again.
