Thriving Greens: Caring for Common Houseplants
The adaptable Pothos Vine prefers its soil to be moist but not soggy. Bright, indirect light keeps it happy, and a high-quality potting mix suits it best. Refresh the soil and evaluate the pot size annually.
Peace Lily's elegance requires evenly moist soil and a position away from direct sunlight. Soft, loamy soil will ensure proper drainage and support. Changing the soil every year can prevent nutrient depletion.
Fiddle Leaf Fig demands consistency. Water when top inch of soil is dry and give it bright, indirect light. Rotate the plant for even growth. Use a fast-draining soil and repot every 1-2 years.
Aloe Vera, the succulent healer, savors the sun and sparse watering. Allow soil to completely dry between watering. Grainy, well-drained soil mimics its natural habitat. Repot when it outgrows its container.
