Ok, I have a confession to make…even as a landscape designer who works with thousands of plants a year, I still kill plants! Yup, even those of us with our hands in the dirt all week long still find a plant or two that end up dead. Sometimes there isn’t much you can do, but most of the time a little preventative medicine will keep your plant alive and perky. Houseplants can be a great addition to your home and with the below tips you can help keep them in tip-top shape!

Watering Your Plants
Watering houseplants is such a simple task but can be so complicated! When do you water? How much water? A good rule of thumb is to water houseplants when the soil is completely dry. Most houseplants abhor wet feet so make sure the soil dries completely between watering. To ensure even watering and to not flood your roots, use ice cubes to water! Overwatering can kill your plants, so I recommend 4-8 ice cubes every 3-4 weeks on most houseplants depending on its size.
