PLANT CARE

House plant care, the THORN floral way.

Plants are locally sourced, low maintenance & grown with love.


LIGHT

  • Bright to indirect, natural light source
  • West, East & South facing windows are typically best
  • Distance plant(s) from cold drafts or heat sources

WATER

  • Place plant(s) in a sink, bucket or tub & gently soak with lukewarm tap water
  • Allow the excess water to drain thru before returning plant(s) to pot
  • Small plant(s) = water every weekly
  • Medium – Large plant(s) = water every other weekly

UPKEEP

  • Remove any unhealthy leaves or stems with sharp pruners
  • Avoid over-watering, under-watering & letting the plant(s) sit in water
  • Rotate your plant(s) regularly for even growth
  • Top up the soil when needed

HUMIDITY

  • Use a plant mister occasionally
  • Group your house plants together
  • Set up pebble tray or vase filled with water & place near your plant(s)
  • Shower your plant(s) – boosts humidity, rinses leaves & an excellent watering technique

BENEFITS

  • Purifies the air
  • Absorbs toxins, pollutants & carbon dioxide
  • Improves mood, concentration, productivity & reduces stress

FOOD

  • Fertilize during growing season (typically Spring-Summer)
  • Indoor plant fertilizer may be sold at local hardware stores, nurseries or garden centres

CACTI

  • Tolerates any natural light conditions
  • Thrives in dry soil
  • Water sparsely every 4 weeks
  • Rotate regularly for even grown

PS.

  • Every plant is a little different in their requirements and hardiness
  • Plants need the occasional haircut – which encourages the plant to produce healthy new growth
  • Most common plant killers are: overwatering, improper drainage, inadequate light conditions
