Give love back to your little green friends by following these simple indoor plant care tips.
How often do indoor plants need to be watered?
Good news, our plant labels have water drop icons as guides to help you know how much water each plant requires.
- One drop means minimal watering is required: once a week or every second or third week, depending on the plant.
- Two drops mean water once or twice week, while being sure not to leave standing water in the collecting dish beneath your planter or pot.
- Three drops indicate plants that need more care: watering two to three times a week, with no dryness in the top layer (1/2") of soil. Self-watering pots with smart inserts can do the job, too.
- Skip watering if soil sticks to your thumb.
- Grouping plants that have the same watering schedule can help to make sure you don’t miss out on one. Plus, they make for a beautiful and lush display.
