House plants may be the best option for your students who have a green thumb - especially at this time of year when the weather is cooler and windy. But can these house plants be a pain to take care of? There are several tips you can give your students to make sure their plants don't die this winter season.
Keep a check on the roots of the plant. If the roots are surrounding the pot, it may be time to repot your house plant. When repotting these plants, it may even be a good idea to trim the roots or place them into multiple containers making several plants.
Remember to remove the dust from your plants. Dust can collect over time and can hinder the plant's ability to receive light. Give your house plant a room temperature bath from time to time and help it keep clean.
Don't overwater your house plants. If you are unsure about how much to water your plants, then always remember, less is more. Try to remember to water as needed rather than constantly. Overwatering is a major cause of dying plants.
While these are not the only tips and tricks out there, these are a few that we have found to be important. Now, you may be asking where can your student in Starkville find these house plants to decorate their dorm or apartment. There are several local places to find these plants.
