PLANT CARE INFO

We’ve teamed up with Hugo & Green to give you their top tips & tricks on how to keep happy & healthy plants.

How to look after your Spider Plant

  • Spider plant needs are simple: Place the plant in bright to moderate light in a room that’s a comfortable temperature for everyone.
  • Keep the soil slightly moist. Once-a-week watering is sufficient in spring and summer; in winter, allow the soil to dry a bit more between waterings.
  • Did you know rain is the best water for your plants? Spider plants in particular are sensitive to the fluoride in tap water. Tap water also leaves behind other minerals that build up and can destroy your plant.
  • If you notice brown or dead leaves or leaf tips, you should remove them. Snip the tip or leaf off using scissors so that the plant’s energy can be directed toward growing healthy leaves.

 

How to look after your Peace Lily

  • Peace lilies are easy to grow, don’t need a lot of light, and help to clean and purify the air.
  • Ideally, keep peace lilies in a spot that gets bright, indirect light. An east-facing window is perfect, as the plant will be exposed to the bright morning sun.
  • Peace lilies are far more tolerant of underwatering than overwatering. Don’t water peace lily plants on a schedule- just check them once a week to see if they need to be watered by feeling the top of the soil, if its dry water it.
  • Dust or wipe the leaves regularly to ensure they photosynthesise well.
