Collections: Houseplants

Plant Parent Adoption Kit (Take 3!)

Have you always wanted to become a plant parent but didn't know where to start?This collection of plants are easy care and sure to become the start of your prized collection. The kit includes:

 

 

Coffee Plant: We all love our Java! But have you considered how beautiful it is as a houseplant? With its glossy, green leaves, coffee plants do best placed near a window but not in direct sunlight. Make sure to keep your plant away from drafts, such as those from air conditioning. And be prepared to water at least weekly to keep the soil moist. This is a plant, like calatheas, that like higher humidity, so it is a good kitchen or bathroom plant addition. And if you folks follow The Sill, you will have seen their recent coffee plant post!

Fittonia (nerve plant): The nerve plant, or Fittonia argyroneura, from the Acanthaceae (Acanthus) family, is a tropically found plant with striking leaves white and green. As the nerve plant originates in a tropical setting, it flourishes within a high humidity environment. Misting may be required to maintain humid-like conditions. Fittonia nerve plant likes well drained moist soil, but not too wet. Water moderately and let growing nerve plants dry out between waterings.

Rare Haworthia: The Haworthia is a miniature succulent native to South Africa, and is one of the easiest houseplants to care for. Haworthia need to be watered when their soil is completely dried out and their leaves start to curl (about every two to three weeks). In the winter, they need less water, so you can basically forget about them and just water them every other month. Haworthia love bright, indirect sun.

Tradescantia (Wandering Dude): This is a houseplant that really thrives in bright but indirect sunlight. The brighter the light you provide your wandering dude plant, the more flowers it will produce. If it’s not getting enough light, the brightly-colored foliage will begin to fade. These plants are happy as long as they’re not kept soaked or allowed to be completely dry too long. Keeping the soil evenly moist is the best.
