Plant Tips and Tricks

Dangerous Decorations

There are a number of seasonal plants that are extremely toxic when consumed. Ivy, holly, mistletoe, and hibiscus are all toxic to humans. While no one plans on eating their holiday decorations, accidents do happen so be extra careful.

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.

No plants on the window

Even though it may seem like a good idea, don't place your plants on a windowsill during the winter. The extreme temperature swings — the sun's heat during the day and the cold at night — can be hazardous to your plants health.
