What You Need To Know About Plant Care
Why is Plant Care Important?
We buy low maintenance plants so why is Plant Care so important? Planting and watering are critical for the care of young plants. Proper planting and watering helps plants establish faster and grow better. Pruning and fertilizing are important for most plants, especially as they grow and age. These steps can keep your plants healthy and even extend their life expectancy. Basic Plant Care keeps your plants healthy and beautiful.

How to Take Care of a Plant
Most plants require sun, soil, and water. Please check out our product page for your plant for specific care instructions. First, make sure that the plant you like is appropriate for your growing zone. Second, be sure you have a spot with the right conditions. Sunlight and soil are the most important conditions to consider since you have more control over water. Although, be sure to avoid planting a drought loving plant in a wet site.
