An Indoor Garden is a collection
of live plants grown in a single container. With proper care, plants in
the container will eventually grow large, allowing for a transplant into
their own separate container. In time, a small Indoor Garden can grow into
a collection of beautiful household tropical plants.
Indoor Garden plants do well in diffused light with moderately moist
soil, with average home temperatures between 55 - 80°F (13 - 27°C).
Be careful not to over water the plants - the containers do not allow
for drainage. When in doubt, determine the need by simply feeling the
soil; cool and moist soil indicates a proper amount of water. The rate
of growth is also dependant upon the amount of light received; the less
light received, the slower the rate of growth. However, be careful not
to place the Indoor Garden in direct sunlight.
For healthier growth, a balanced fertilizer can be added to the soil
on a monthly basis, (see fertilizer package instructions for appropriate
mixing ratios). With proper fertilizing, the plants will remain lush
and green. Tip: yellowing leaves are an indication of either a lack of
nutrients or inappropriate watering (too much or not enough).
An assortment of flowering plants may be added to our spring and holiday
arrangements. The life expectancy of flowering plants is less than the
tropical foliage, with the exception of the kalanchoe, which is a hearty
flowering variety and thus included in designs thoughout the year.
