6 tips to help houseplants survive winter
Most plants, with a good soaking, can be watered once a week, said Lorri Dell, a florist at Bresciano’s Flowers and Gifts in Bridgeton.
Allow the water to reach room temperature before you water your plants. Cold tap water may shock the plants, reminds Ablaza.
The biggest mistake people make with their houseplants is overwatering, no matter what season it is.
“A lot of times, people see something wrong with the plant and they assume it is because it needs water. Often this isn’t the case, and the plant dies from overwatering,” said Ablaza.
Most houseplants are tropical and thrive in humidity. “Most tropical plants have an environment where there is humidity. Anything you can do to re-create these conditions inside your home is going to be a good thing for the plants,” said Ablaza.
To help add humidity to your plants’ environment, give them a light mist with a spray bottle at least once a day or make a humidity tray.
Hudson said a humidity tray is pretty easy to make. Find a tray and line it with pebbles. Fill the tray with water to the top of the pebbles and then sit your plant on top. As the water evaporates, it will create humidity for your plants. Make sure the pot is resting on top of the stones, not in the water.
Do not keep houseplants near appliances, such as TVs, as the heat will dry the moisture from the leaves, said Dell.
Keep them away from drafty windows or heater vents, recommends Ablaza.
Pay attention to the areas that receive the most sunlight during the winter and try to place your houseplants in these locations.
Rotate your houseplants weekly, advised Dell. Give each side equal time in the light. Otherwise you will wind up with lopsided growth.
“Most leafy green plants like indirect light because they sunburn easily,” reminded Dell.
Many houseplants are not seasonal, said Dell. While the growth cycle may slow in the winter, the plants are far from dormant. Continue a regular feeding regime.
“You can still fertilize. Some people feel they don’t want to fertilize. We do keep our plants fed all year long,” said Hudson.
“It’s not going to hurt if you continue feeding them,” said Ablaza.
Dell uses a leaf shine a couple times a month on foliage plants to keep the dust off and the pores on the leaves open.
It is OK to repot houseplants anytime in the season.
Follow the general rule of repotting plants when they are root-bound. Move up about 2 inches in pot size, recommends Hudson.
Watch your plants throughout the season. If they appear to be struggling, try to relocate them. The plant may need more or less light. Cut out dead foliage, and water only when the plant has dried out. Maintain it through the winter until the days start to grow longer and you see new growth, signaling spring is around the bend.
