All About The ZZ Plant

All About The ZZ Plant

Next stop on our list of plants that are relatively easy to care for, The ZZ Plant. This plant is hands down one of the easiest and most forgiving plants to have in your space. The ZZ doesn’t require much and can withstand waterings for a long period of time.


Have a read about this plant below.


Habitat Needs


All that this plant needs is a proper sized planter that allows it to show off its shiny, waxy leaves.  Always remember to keep your plant in a pot that has drainage holes for proper watering.

 

Lighting Needs


The ZZ Plant is a lover of bright, indirect sunlight. This means close to a window but not directly in the sun. If this plant is left in the sun rays, it can cause the leaves to scorch. However, this plant can become ‘leggy’ if it doesn’t get enough sunlight. This may seem confusing, but just remember, no direct sunlight and your plant will be happy.


Watering Needs


This plant should be watered whenever its soil dries out completely, so every other week or so. An easy way to find this out is by doing the Finger Test. If you stick your finger 1-2” into the soil and it's not damp, it's ready to water. However, it can withstand months without watering and stores water under the soil. 


Temperature Needs


The ZZ Plant enjoys warmer weather and doesn’t typically like to be in colder climates. The ideal temperature for this plant is between 60 and 90. Aim for temperatures no lower than 45 degrees fahrenheit. If your space is on the drier side, adding a humidifier could help your houseplant as well.


Nutrient Needs


ZZ plants are happy without fertilizer, but if you would like, you can give the plants half strength fertilizer one to two times a year and only in the summer months.


How to Propagate


If you’d like to propagate your ZZ Plant, simply take a clean pair of garden shears and snip off a stalk that has a couple of leaves on it and place it in a vessel of water. (We like to repurpose glass containers around the house.) Once the cuttings have sprouted roots that are a few inches long, they’re ready to be planted in their own pot of soil.

All About The Pothos Plant

All About The Pothos Plant

For a new plant parent, getting started can sometimes seem challenging if you’re not well versed with plant care. So, we’ve decided to start a new blog series diving deep into each individual plants’ care that we have. Starting off with one of the easiest houseplants we can think of- The Pothos.

 

The Pothos, or ‘Devil’s Ivy’ is a very forgiving plant, so long as you remember to water it every few days or so. This tropical aroid vine with smooth and leathery heart-shaped leaves are native to Southeast Asia, and can tolerate low light conditions and periods of drought. It also happens to be one of the easiest plants to propagate and make new plants to share with friends and family!


Habitat Needs


This trailing plant is best suspended, allowing it to grow vertically. Unlike an Ivy Plant, The Pothos will not attach its vines to any walls, trellises, etc. however, using hooks to hold its vines will help it grow around windows and up walls. Always remember to keep your plant in a pot that has drainage holes for proper watering.

Lighting Needs


The Pothos is a lover of bright, indirect sunlight. This means close to a window but not directly in the sun. If this plant is left in the sun rays, it can cause the leaves to scorch. If your plant has variegation, it can lose its patterns if it doesn’t get enough sunlight. This may seem confusing, but just remember, no direct sunlight and your plant will be happy.


Watering Needs


Although this plant derives from tropical climates, it prefers for its soil to be completely dried out in between waterings. We recommend doing the finger test- stick your finger in the top of the soil about 1-2” down and if the soil isn’t damp, time for a watering! Overwatering this plant can cause the roots to rot. Another sign of needing water is if the leaves start to droop. Just don’t let the leaves turn brown.


Temperature Needs


When considering the temperature needed for this plant, do consider the tropical climates it derived from. The Pothos Plant prefers 65-75 degrees fahrenheit and can withstand temperatures down to 50 degrees. This plant loves humidity, so adding a humidifier near the plant if living in drier climates can help this plant thrive. 


Nutrient Needs


This plant is a very easy plant in regards to nutrients. An all-purpose liquid fertilizer added to its soil twice or more a year will encourage growth. 

 

How to Propagate

If you’d like to propagate yout Pothos, simply take a clean pair of garden shears and snip off a few legs of the Pothos near the ‘nodes’ and place in a vessel of water. (We like to repurpose glass containers around the house.) Once the cuttings have sprouted roots that are a few inches long, they’re ready to be planted in their own pot of soil.

House Plants That Do Well In Warm Weather

House Plants That Do Well In Warm Weather

As we start to enter the middle of Summer, the temperature is rising and the livelihood of some house plants are thriving. We’ve compiled a list of a few of our favorite plants that do well during the warmer months.

Croton Petra

To keep it bright and cheery, make sure the soil is thoroughly dry between watering as too much water will cause wilting. Use a general fertilizer in a well-draining pot and do not feed in fall and winter. Provide adequate sunlight for 4-6 hours per day. Thrives in bright filtered light.

ZZ Plant

Due to its hardy nature, water sparingly as it can easily be overwatered, and keep out of direct sunlight to avoid scorching their leaves. Medium to bright indirect or filtered light. Maintain between 60-90F

Spider Plant

Spider plants are very hardy and will survive in less than perfect conditions. Although spider plants prefer bright light, they tend to scorch in direct sunlight, and can also tolerate low-light conditions.

Pothos

Give your pothos a drink when the leaves start to droop or wilt, but be sure not to allow roots to get soggy as that can lead to root rot. Although tolerant of all indirect light levels ranging from low to bright, the pothos will be fullest, most colorful, and grow fastest in medium to bright light.

Laurentii

 

Water once every 3-4 weeks and allow the soil to dry out completely between watering. Place in low to bright indirect or filtered light and maintain a temperature between 60-90F. Fertilize during the growing season with an all-purpose plant food.

Chinese Evergreen

Water thoroughly, but allow the soil to dry out between waterings Do not allow the lower soil (bottom of the pot where roots reside) to remain wet as this may cause root rot.

Well, not all house plants are the same and require different amounts of lighting to do their best. Today we’ll be sharing a few of our favorite plants that thrive in bright light.  


Snake Plant

 

The Sansevieria Laurentii, or commonly known as the Snake Plant is out top rated bright light plant because of its many favorable qualities. Not only can this house plant tolerate lots of light, it is drought-tolerant and hard to kill. The Snake Plant has amazing air-purifying qualities and is one of the few to continue to produce oxygen at night, rather than releasing carbon dioxide like other plants.

This plant maintains its spectacular colors when it’s in bright light. Being quite easy to care for, the Croton Petra only needs to be watered when the soil is dried out. 


Ponytail Palm

 

The Ponytail Palm is a fan favorite because of its unique look. Otherwise known as the “Elephant’s Foot” this plant has a trunk that acts as a reservoir to hold water, making it a more drought-tolerant plant. While it can sustain in low light conditions, the Ponytail Palm does its best in bright light. Did we mention that it also comes in a 4-inch grow pot and is the perfect desktop addition?


Trailing Jade

 

A succulent on our list is the Trailing Jade. This plant comes with a hanger that can easily be attached to a hook on a balcony, ceiling or somewhere in your garden. Being one of the easiest plants on this list, the Jade Plant only needs to be watered when the soil dries out and doesn’t require any special care. The Jade Plant also has great air purifying qualities and is a must-have in our opinion.


Moneytree Plant

 

The Moneytree Plant is famously known for being a symbol of good luck and used quite a lot in Feng Shui practices. This plant’s unique braided stem and vibrant green leaves enjoy bright light and only needs to be watered once every one to two weeks. It makes for the perfect housewarming gift, congratulatory gift, etc. 


Fiddle Leaf Fig

 

A plant that surprisingly does very well in bright light is the Fiddle Leaf Fig. This big leafy plant needs to be watered when the top 2 inches of soil starts to dry out.

How to Care for Air Plants

How to Care for Air Plants

New to caring for Air Plants? Or looking for an optimal watering guide? Look no further! 

Air Plants are striking tropical plants capable of absorbing water and nutrients through their leaves. Tillandsias are possibly the most exotic, and enjoyable plants in existence. They flourish in vertical spaces and can be attached to nearly anything. They exist in a variety of shades, colors, and sizes and are among the most carefree plants on earth. Shop Succulents stocks over 50 distinct species enabling us to provide a thrilling variety in each order! Our unique air plant packs ensure you will have all different plants in your pack whereas our assorted packs contain multiples of the same plants if you are looking to have cohesion in your pack.

If you're new to air plants you may not know that they do not require soil! Air plants often live perched in the crux of trees in what are commonly referred to as cloud forests. This makes them an ideal indoor plant option for the apartment plant decorator or anyone with less outdoor garden potting space. You can place them in windowsills, in terrariums or gorgeous ceramic planters, or simply lay them flat on a shelf. 

Ideally air plants do best with plenty of fresh air flow and bright indirect light. Keep your air plants away from hot direct sunlight and extremely dry or windy conditions should you opt to keep them outdoors. With proper care and conditions, air plants can thrive both indoors and outdoors! 

Water your air plants once a week and increase watering to two to three times a week during really hot and dry seasons. Water your air plants by soaking them thoroughly in room temperature water for 10-20 minutes. Then drain the water and allow the plants to dry before placing them back in their space.

Keep in mind during hot weather seasons air plants may need to be spritzed with a spray bottle in between watering cycles if they begin to appear dry. 

Varieties with thinner more spindly leaves retain less water and will become drier faster. Be sure to keep an eye on different varieties as you may notice some need to be watered more or less often depending on size and thickness of the plants leaves.

Air Purifying House Plants

Air Purifying House Plants

The results from a clean air study performed by NASA show that the plants mentioned in this article have tremendous air purifying qualities and can remove volatile organic pollutants such as formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene. Here are 5 plants every plant owner should have in their space:


Snake Plant

snake plant

The Sansevieria Laurentii, more commonly known as “Snake Plant” is an evergreen perennial plant native to Southeast Asia. It is a hardy and low maintenance plant that remains very popular because of its adaptability to a wide range of growing conditions. Areas with medium to bright light is best, and although it can survive in low light locations, it will grow much slower and the leaves will become a darker green in color. While other plants release carbon dioxide at night, the “Snake Plant” continues to produce oxygen, making it an excellent plant to place in the bedroom.

Pothos

pothos plant

The Epipremnum aureum, more commonly known as “Golden Pothos”, “Devil’s Ivy”, has the reputation of being one of the easiest and most forgiving houseplants to take care of making it the perfect choice for the beginner plant enthusiasts. Give your pothos a drink when the leaves start to droop or wilt, but be sure not to allow roots to get soggy as that can lead to root rot. Although tolerant of all indirect light levels ranging from low to bright, the pothos will be fullest, most colorful, and grow fastest in medium to bright light.

Chinese Evergreen

The Chinese Evergreen, otherwise known as the “Silver Bay” is a low maintenance plant with beautiful two-toned leaves and stocky legs. This plant doesn't need much, in fact, it prefers medium to low light or indirect sunlight. Water the Silver Bay once per week or when the soil dries out. It’s important to make sure the soil at the bottom isn’t wet as it may cause root rot.

Bonnie Spider

With long, slender curling leaves, the Chlorophytum comosum 'bonnie' or "Bonnie Curly Spider Plant" is one of the most popular, adaptable, and easiest to grow of all hanging houseplants. Although spider plants prefer bright light, they tend to scorch in direct sunlight, and can also tolerate low-light conditions. Water 1-2 times every week, or whenever the soil dries out.

Boston Fern

The long, frilly legs of the Boston Fern plant prefer a more humid environment but are still a relatively easy plant to care for. This plant does well in bright, indirect light but be cautious of direct light as it may cause the leaves to scorch. Aim to keep your Boston Ferns' soil moist at all times, but don't allow it to sit in water. Tolerable to lower humidity levels, however a misting every couple of days will only help the plant. 

We hope this article helped you learn a little more about which plants help rid spaces of pollutants in the air. Happy Earth Day!

How to Start Seeds Indoors

How to Start Seeds Indoors

Welcome to the launch of our Seeds Collection! We’re happy you’re here. For a lot of us, we might not have the space for the garden of our dreams. And with the time spent indoors the past year, we’ve decided to grow fruits and vegetables at home. Today, we’ll be showing you just how easy it is. Get your Green Thumbs ready!

 

What you’ll need:

- Seeds

- Soil

- Vessels

- Water

- Marker


Step 1:


The first step to starting your indoor garden is finding the right vessel to house the seeds. You can purchase trays that have individual cells or you can repurpose household items. We’re using 2 inch Grow Pots, but yogurt cups, old containers, etc. can be used. Just make sure you have 2-3 inches of depth and you create drainage holes in the bottom, if not present.

 

Step 2:


Finding the right soil plays a big factor in the success of your seedlings. We recommend a lighter soil compared to one that’s heavier like clay soil. If you're able to use an organic soil, that would be best. Just be aware, it is not recommended to re-use old soil you already have. Once you have found your soil, it's time to fill the vessels. Making sure the soil is moist first, add it to the vessel until it's almost full.

 

Step 3:


The depth that the seeds need to be planted in the soil depend on the instructions on the back of our seed packets. For this example, we’re using our Sweet Golden Cal Wonder Pepper seeds. Planting depth for germination is ¼” in soil. Place a seed in the soil and gently press it to its needed depth and cover with soil. 

 

Step 4:


Water the planted seeds according to the instructions. These Pepper Seeds require watering once a week for the first 10 days. Once the seeds have sprouted, they’re ready to be transported to larger vessels. Continue to water once a week until ready to harvest.

 

We also like to use a marker or even popsicle stick to label each species to track growth.

We hope this helps anyone wanting to start their own DIY garden. Happy planting!
