        House Plant Care Tips

        Indoor House Plant Care made easy! Learn about the care of flowering and foliage house plants and make your living space healthier and cosier with plants.

        I always loved house plants! Even as a child I had a collection of different plants in my bedroom ranging from spider plants, cacti to palm trees. I was always on the hunt for new cuttings or resuscitating plants that other people were getting rid of.

        I still keep many different varieties of house plants. One plant, a Beaucarnea I have for at least 20 years and it even moved with me from one country to another and from house to house. I nearly have a personal relationship with it.

        I will share some experiences and tips here with you.

        Foliage House Plants

        Leafy plants are usually more suited to indirect light. Big leaves tend to burn in direct sunlight. Most of these plants have originated from shaded areas like forests. So don't keep them on a hot south-facing window sill.
