Heather's Helpful Hint

Make Your Home an Inviting Haven
February 03, 2011

When the weather outside is snowy and cold, make your home an inviting haven by adding indoor flowering plants and houseplants to your décor. 

At this time of year, be sure to provide extra humidity for your plants. Misting, humidity trays, and room humidifiers are all easy solutions to the drying effects of indoor heating systems. 

If you have orchids that have finished their winter bloom cycle, this is the perfect time to take care of any needed repotting. Always remember though that orchids are not typical houseplants and can not be repotted with potting soil. Orchid bark, orchid potting mixes, coir, and sphagnum moss are all great choices. Be sure to find the right product for your particular type of orchid. If you are not sure, just give us a call!
