Houseplants are a fantastic addition to your home, helping to reduce carbon dioxide levels, and providing a feeling of tranquillity by bringing a little bit of nature inside.

How often should you water indoor plants?
So many different species of plant are happy living inside the home – but they still require the right kind of care to thrive. Whil st consideration should be given to placement, access to sunlight and fresh air, one question we are often asked is how regularly you should water your indoor plants.
This can depend on the size and type of the plant itself, temperature and humidity of the room, soil or pot type, time of year and more – so it can be tricky! Species like cacti and succulents are quite low maintenance and require very minimal watering, whereas others, such as orchids, may require a top up roughly once a week. It’s worth keeping an eye out for signs of over, or under watering, such as wilting, overly dry soil or discolouration but we’d always suggest chatting to our experts if you’re unsure about what your indoor plant is trying to tell you.
