How to Care for your Easy Care Plants

As the title suggests, caring for these types of indoor plants is, by definition, easy! Typical conditions it’s important to consider when thinking about plant care include air quality, water, amount of sunlight, soil and nutrients, humidity, temperature, and more. And with plants designated as ‘Easy To Care For’, you can assume that they’ll be able to thrive under a broader range of conditions and without significant extra support.

Guidelines will vary from plant to plant, so always be sure to check out the guidance for your particular product, but in general you can assume that easy care plants require less work than other indoor flora. They also may more easily germinate (make baby plants), which is something to consider (and could be a potential source of gifts for friends! 

1. Sunlight and temperature: Most easy-care plants can be grown in indirect sunlight and are happy with general indoor temperatures between 55-80°F (13-27°C), and some can handle direct sun too.

2. Insect pests and diseases: Aphids, spider mites, whiteflies and scale are always a risk when it comes to plants in general. In terms of diseases, the most common issue is root rot that comes from overwatering - so be sure not to water to the point that you end up with soggy soil! 

3. Pots and supports: Some easy-care plants love to climb and so benefit from being trained on a trellis, moss pole, bamboo stick or other object to support it. Others have trailing stems that work well in hanging baskets. And some just require a simple, drainable pot!

Benefits of Easy Care Plants For Your Home

Colour, aroma, aesthetics and that simple presence of living nature in the often non-organic environment of the home are all lovely features of having indoor plants. Easy to care for plants just mean that these benefits are easier to maintain! There are some more specific ways in which easy care plants improve the atmosphere in a home environment, such as air quality, brightness and odor…

1. Almost all indoor plants have leaves covered in small pores, which absorb carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen - this process is called photosynthesis, and is what keeps our air breathable. In general, the larger the surface area of a plant’s leaves, the more efficient they are at photosynthesizing!

2. Some easy care plants like Pothos Ivy also have air-purifying qualities - such as being able to absorb and remove toxins (such as formaldehyde) from materials found in home spaces (like in carpets and other upholstery).

3. Indoor plants are also great at trapping dust that would otherwise coat furniture or kitchen surfaces - they help keep the place clean!

No-fuss and highly rewarding, easy care plants are the bomb when it comes to decking out your apartment or home with beautiful, amazing natural goodness that has benefits for your health, home and sense of wellbeing.

Easy Care plants are a great way to change the vibe in your space, add a new colour scheme, new textures or simply to bring a little bit of the outside world inside.
