With August ending soon, you are likely starting to think about how much you are going to miss all the wonderful bright hues of summer. For many people, the cold weather that is coming poses a threat to their overall well being. Seasonal Affective Disorder causes those who have it to go through bouts of depression when they have to spend a significant amount of time indoors because of the weather.


Others just are happier in general when they are surrounded by living things, other than the children or roommates who occupy their homes. Having plants inside is a great way to ensure that you are able to maintain your positive attitude, even on the coldest, windiest snow day of the year. If you are not sure how to take care of indoor plants, we can help!

Keeping Your Houseplants Alive in the Winter

You may think that caring for houseplants will be a burden, but truthfully it isn’t that hard. You simply have to follow the tips below:

  • Mist your houseplants weekly to prevent them from drying out.
  • Keep your houseplants away from cool drafts or anything that emits heat.
  • Try to remember to open your shades in the mornings before you head to work to give your plants a tad more light.
  • Always check the soil – if it feels dry, it’s time to water.
