Plant Tips and Tricks

Protecting the Bamboo Palm from spider mites

Keeping the Bamboo Palm in hot, dry environments will encourage spider mite infestations. Medium light is best with Eastern or Northern exposure to natural light, supplemented with fluorescent or incandescent artificial light in the office.

Put someone in charge

In an office setting, plant care can often go by the wayside if no one takes the responsibility. It is a good idea to designate someone, or a few people, in the office who will take care of watering and maintenance on a regular basis.

Good Water Makes for a Healthy Plant

Often times plants are sensitive to the water that we drink because of the chlorine levels. If tap water is your best option, allow a container of water to sit overnight and allow the chlorine gasses to dissipate. Collecting rain water or melted snow is also an effective method of providing your plant with natural water.

The easy orchid

The orchid is one of the easiest plants to maintain in an indoor space. Medium light is best with Eastern or Northern exposure to natural light, supplemented with fluorescent or incandescent artificial light in the office.
