Origins of Common Houseplants


“How should I care for my house plants?” Easy! Just mimic the environmental conditions of their home in the wild. Are the climate conditions for Polynesia tropical, oceanic, hot and humid? Does it experience a wet warm season from November-April and a cooler warm season from May-October? Oh it does! This is a great indicator that your pothos wants to have deep waterings with time for their roots to dry completely between, 70-90°F with some humidity and bright, indirect light for 12-14 hours/day. Our houseplants are very far from home and will undoubtably appreciate the extra tender loving care!
