Indoor Plant and Flower Care
One of the best parts about working in the interior landscape industry is helping customers with their personal house plant problems. Many of them have problems with their own indoor plants. It is nice to be able to help them keep their indoor houseplants growing and healthy. That is why I started this website, to help others with their house plants care.

If you are trying to find a good houseplant and don't know what to buy, check out my list of easy to care for houseplants. If you have never had an indoor plant before you might want to start with something like a Sansevieria plant, or Mother-In-Law Tongue plant, as it is a very easy indoor plant to care for.

Being an animal lover, as many people are, I thought it would be helpful to add a link for those with questions about pets and houseplants, as I have received a few emails with questions on the subject. Pets should not be allowed to eat your indoor house plants or your outdoor plants. Please check the following link if you have a question about your indoor houseplant, or outdoor plants, and pet safety. This is a link to the ASPCA, Animal Poison Control, Toxic and Non-Toxic Plants list. This link should help you in choosing plants for home and garden that will not be harmful to your pets.
Over the years, I have had many animals and plants in the same house and have not had too many problems. I always make my best effort to keep houseplants out of the reach of pets. That can be difficult, especially with cats, as they seem to be able to get just about anywhere they darn well please!
Here is a link to an amusing product for those loving both their cats and their plants! It made me laugh, had to put it here... I believe this is an artificial plant so if you like this, don't expect to get a living plant!
As a note to those of you looking for environmentally friendly, air-cleaning house plants - any time you put a houseplant in your home or office, it is helping to give you cleaner, fresher air, as the leaves and roots clean and filter the air and release oxygen into the environment. So fill your home with gorgeous greenery and grow some fresh air. And, I am happy to say, the more indoor house plants the better!
Plant propagation questions? There are a number of ways you can propagate your house plants and it varies from plant to plant. Here is an excellent resource for learning all about propagating your indoor and outdoor plants and flowers. If that is more than you want to know, I would be happy to give help and advice, just send me a message!
Customers often ask how to take better care of their own indoor houseplants. Sometimes they just want to know how to keep them alive! The information on this website will give you help in solving your houseplant problems.
Working in the interior landscape business for over twenty-five years, I know that the most important part of indoor plant care is not so much the type of plant you have but the light your house plant receives and the watering of your indoor plants in relation to the lighting.
Use your common sense and trust yourself to make the right decisions. This should give you the best results with your indoor houseplants.
Included are sections on proper watering techniques, placing your houseplant in the best available light, the importance of a healthy root system and care of specific houseplants. These are general care tips and only the person caring for the plant can implement them. So, Plant Lover, read on and I am sure you will find some helpful information.
Identify the plant you have and read about any special needs. Links to specific houseplant info are on the left menu or use the site search. Learn the basics and put them into practice on the houseplants you have right now.
Indoor houseplant problems are most often related to improper watering and light so please read the sections on watering and lighting as these are most important. I cannot stress this enough as the watering your houseplant receives is directly related to the light in which it is located, no matter what type of plant you are growing.
