Indoor Potted Plant Caretaking Tips

At times it seems as if growing your own delicious zucchinis or a full bed of geraniums is easier than keeping a houseplant alive. One day they're in full bloom, and the next they're wilting and dropping leaves. The trick to keeping indoor plants happy and healthy is to pay attention to their basic needs; food, water and housing, just to name a few. Get to know these five indoor potted plant caretaking tips to help those indoor flowers and greenery thrive in your home.


Types Of Materials

Just about anything can be used to pot your plants, so ultimately what you choose depends on personal style. Resin, fiberglass and plastic are ideal if you're looking for something lightweight and easy to move around. These nonporous materials don't absorb moisture as well as heavier counterparts such as unglazed clay or wood, but they can withstand colder temperatures much better. Whichever type of container you decide to use, make sure it has holes on the bottom. The holes allow air and water to flow freely, which is important, as insufficient drainage can cause roots to drown.

Food For Thought

Just like any other living thing in your home, plants need to be well-fed in order to stay healthy. Try to avoid using the soil from your garden, as it most likely contains weed seeds, insects and fungal diseases. Instead, invest in soil intended specifically for potted plants. It usually contains a loose or light mixture of necessary nutrients, like peat moss and decomposed organic matter. Some soils even have time-released fertilizer that can save you some maintenance time.


  • Light The Way

    Figuring out proper lighting for your indoor plants can be tricky, especially when taking seasonal changes and lack of window space into account. Rather than just setting your plants on your sill alongside waterproof candles and hoping for the best, consider setting up a light system of your own. Incandescent, fluorescent and halide lights are the most popular for indoor plants. Each of them provides different benefits, so do some research on what light works best for your needs. It's also important to keep in mind that plants need darkness to thrive. If you're going to use an artificial lighting method, remember to give your plants between six and twelve hours per day.

  • Watering: When & Where

    The number of times per day your plants need to be watered depends on your climate. If your home is located in a mild environment, your plants will probably only need to be watered once a week. Hotter conditions require watering twice a day for smaller or hanging plants, and once a day for larger plants. To avoid fungal disease, pour water into the soil, not onto the leaves or flowers. Also, don't sit the pot in water, as this can cause root rot. And make sure the soil isn't getting too light in color or cracking. This indicates you've gone too long without watering.

  • Done With Dead Weight

    On occasion, your plants will need to be deadheaded, which basically means cutting off faded blooms to encourage the plant to produce more flowers. If your plant has many small flowers, shear the plant to about one-third of its original size. It'll look awkward for about a week, but you'll soon be rewarded with a fresh batch of new, healthier blooms.


Indoor potted plants are hardly the hassle they seem to be. Just show them some tender love and care and you're good to go.
