Plant Tips and Tricks

Take preventative measures to protect your plant

Setting up traps is a great step to take in an effort to minimize pests on your office plants. It, of course, is not a fool proof plan, but it certainly is a good start. Yellow sticky traps help to catch flying pests, like white flies, and fungus gnats. You can buy them, or simply make your own by cutting bright yellow cardboard, and covering them in a sticky material.

Know the Temperature and Ventilation

When you have your plants in an office setting it is crucial to be aware of the temperature of the room in which the plant is located.  The ideal temperature for an indoor plant is between 60 and 75 degrees F. It is key to keep your plant away from hot or cold drafts, and warm appliances. It is important to have good ventilation for your plant too. If your room’s ventilation is lacking, a small fan set on low is all your plant needs.
