Green Oasis: Caring for Popular Houseplants
The Peace Lily thrives in medium to low light and enjoys weekly watering, keeping the soil moist but not soggy, and well-draining, loamy soil.
Snake Plants require little water, prefer indirect sunlight, and grow best in free-draining sandy soil. Water sparingly to avoid root rot.
Keep Pothos in bright, indirect light and water when the top inch of soil feels dry. They flourish in well-draining, nutrient-rich soil.
Spider Plants prefer bright, indirect sunlight and well-drained soil. Water them well, but let the soil dry between waterings.
Monstera needs indirect light but can tolerate shade. Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings, and use peat-based soil.
Fiddle Leaf Figs require bright, filtered light. Water only when the top inch of soil is dry, and plant in a well-draining, loamy potting mix.
ZZ Plants are drought tolerant, thriving in low-light areas. Allow the soil to become dry to the touch before watering, and use well-drained soil.
Water Jade Plants when the soil is dry to the touch, provide full sun to light shade, and use a well-draining, sandy mix similar to cactus potting soil.
Parlor Palms prefer indirect light, being watered when the top soil is dry, and grow best in a peat-based soil that is well-aerated and draining.
Aloe Vera plants need bright, indirect sunlight and should only be watered once the soil has completely dried out to avoid root rot. Use a mix designed for succulents.
