Bring Plants Indoors for the Winter
When To Bring Plants Indoors
Is the weather starting to threaten your outdoor potted plants? When the night temperatures dip to below 45 – 48 degrees Fahrenheit, it’s time to bring them inside. Before you bring your plants indoors, double-check that they don’t have any small insects like aphids or spider mites. Find them a sunny spot by a window and place them in decorative planters or baskets that complement the room’s décor. Adding a little life and indoor plants to your home décor will instantly wake up a room.
Enjoy Healthy Houseplants All Winter Long
Acclimate your plants to the indoors by bringing them inside in the evening and then putting them back outside in the morning. For about two weeks, gradually increase the amount of time they are indoors versus outdoors. Group your houseplants together to create a humid microclimate in the dry, winter months. Remember to check if your plant is thirsty every 3-4 days. Don’t overwater or leave them in standing water.
By taking the proper steps, you can enjoy healthy houseplants all winter long.
