Are your houseplants looking a little sad? It’s pretty typical for plants to look like they are struggling or lose some leaves as we make our way through winter and head toward spring. Learn how to care for plants in winter with these simple tips.
Winter can be a tough time for houseplants with less day light and dry heat indoors.
Plants naturally go through a phase during the year known as dormancy, which is a time where plants take a little rest and store energy for the next growing season.
While they are in dormancy, avoid drafts and heat exposure.
Stop watering plants on the same day every week. Check the soil weekly for dryness instead. Watering when plants don't need it will kill them.
With the use of heat indoors, take the dryness out of the air by adding a humidifier.
Make sure the plant is getting the right amount of light it needs.
Start feeding plants with a fertilizer in late February.
