This is the time of the year when we like to enjoy foliage plants in the home. So, what are the better plants and what care do they need?
For me, the most successful plant for the home is the pothos with the philodendron look but green and yellow leaves. Also, the aglaonema, dracaena and peace lilies are favorites too. Why - Because they can tolerate low light and are pretty maintenance free.
Now your indoor plants do need water and you have to moisten the soil when the surface feels dry to the touch. Also keep them out of the direct line of air ducts which can dry them out. These can exist in lower light levels but do better in all but direct sun. So the closer to a good light source the better.
Every month or two you do need to feed them. You could use a water soluble fertilizer once a month or you could make care even easier with a slow release plant food. Slow release products feed plants uniformly for months. They are more reliable than me.
Lastly if your plant needs repotting why not wait a little longer. Most foliage plants won't begin to make good growth until March. Then you can give your plant a little larger container and add new potting soil such as the Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix. Just add the soil lightly around the root ball. There is no need to pack it in too tight.
There you go - you now have new plants and some tips of the needed care. Enjoy the winter foliage.
