House & Patio Plants

Houseplants add life, color, and texture to living spaces. They also clean the air by filtering out toxins and pollutants. Patio plants are potted plants that we keep outside at least part of the year. Some patio plants are moved in when temperatures dip too low for the plant. This is a great way to enjoy tropical plants in cooler areas where they cannot be planted in the ground.

How to Water House & Patio Plants

Most potted plants should be watered when the soil is drying out. Test your plant’s soil by sticking your finger in 1 to 2 inches deep. If the soil feels cool and moist, do not water. If the soil feels warm and dry, water your plant. Research your particular House & Patio plant’s moisture recommendations for best results. We have care information on each product page that will help you determine the best environment for your plant.

How to Fertilize House & Patio Plants

PlantingTree Slow Release Fertilizer can be used 2 to 3 times per year on House and Patio plants. Our slow release plant food feeds plants for up to 6 months. There is no risk of fertilizer burn so this plant food can be used at the time of planting. Use 2 teaspoons of fertilizer per gallon pot size or 1 teaspoon per foot of height. Mix our slow release fertilizer into the top layer of soil or sprinkle over the top and water in well. Repeat in 4 to 6 months. Fertilizer tends to leach out with the water in potted plants so they need fed more often than plants in the ground.

How to Keep Cats out of Your Plants

Are your cats chewing on your houseplants? Are your neighbor’s cats pooping in your patio planters? Put things on the soil or around your plant to keep cats out of your House & Patio plants. Sprinkle or spray your plants with cayenne pepper or drop some citrus peels over the soil. Adding rocks over the soil is often a good way to keep cats from turning your plant pot into a litter box. They love the feel of soft dirt or sand under their paws, but rocks, not so much. I have successfully used mesh over the pot around the plant trunk as well. Cats really hate aluminum foil. It can be placed around your plant on the ground or over the soil to keep your cat away from your House & Patio plants. Redirection is another great option. Plant some catnip or cat grass to treat you cats or distract the neighbor’s cat away from your patio plants.

How to Get Rid of Flies in House & Patio Plants Naturally?

The “flies” that you are seeing in houseplants are likely fungus gnats and they are a pain. White fly and other pests could be an issue in patio plants as well. Fungus gnats love moist potting soil. Allow your plants to dry out before watering them again. Insecticidal soap or neem oil can be sprayed directly on the soil. Bacillus thuringiensis is a microbe or bacterium that kills pests naturally. It can be added to the soil to kill fungus gnats.These safe methods get rid of these pests naturally and don’t harm pets or humans. You can also use yellow sticky tape to help eliminate fungus gnat adults.
