Plant Care Tips

Nurturing indoor plants, miniature green beauties, and terrariums isn't just a hobby; it's an art. To ensure your leafy friends thrive, here's what you need to know about each type:

Indoor Plants

  1. Lighting: Determine each plant's light requirements. Some crave the embrace of bright, indirect light, while others thrive in cosy corners of low light. Find the perfect spot in your home to let them flourish!
  2. Watering: Don't drown your plants in love! Always do a quick soil check before watering. Wait until the top inch of soil dries out; then, it's time to hydrate.
  3. Humidity: Did you know many of our indoor green friends originally hail from humid climates? If your place feels like a desert, especially during the chilly winter months, it's time to bring in a humidifier or start giving your plants a refreshing mist regularly. Keep them thriving!
  4. Temperature: Keep your indoor plants away from drafts, and don't let them get shocked by sudden temperature changes. They usually like the temperature to be steady, just like the usual one in most homes.
  5. Feeding: Boost your plants' growth with balanced fertiliser in the spring and summer - follow the label's guide. Remember to dial back on feeding during Autumn and Winter when your plants take it easy and grow slower.

Miniature Plants

  1. Potting: Choose a well-draining soil mix to prevent root rot. Due to their petite size, miniature plants are prone to drying out fast, so you might find yourself watering them more often than you'd think. Keep them happy and hydrated!
  2. Trimming: Keep your miniature plants looking their best by trimming and pruning regularly! This not only maintains their shape but also gets rid of any dead or yellowing leaves, ensuring they stay vibrant and healthy.
  3. Container Size: Make sure your pot matches your plant's size. When your green buddy begins to outgrow its home, usually every 1-2 years, it's time for a repotting adventure!
  4. Inspection: Miniature plants, with their tiny size, are often easy targets for pesky pests. Stay vigilant for any tell-tale signs of infestation and swing into action quickly with the right pesticide to keep them safe and healthy!


  1. Enclosed Terrariums: Crafting a humid oasis creates a paradise for tropical plants. Remember to water sparingly thanks to the enclosed space, moisture sticks around longer, making it easy to overdo it.
  2. Open Terrariums: Perfect for succulents and cacti that thrive in drier conditions, these terrariums require more frequent watering than their enclosed counterparts. The key is to keep the watering balance enough to quench the plants but not drown them.
  3. Charcoal Layer: Adding a layer of activated charcoal to the bottom of your terrarium works like magic! It zaps away bacteria and fungi, ensuring plants thrive in a healthy environment.
  4. Placement: Place your terrariums in spots where they'll soak up plenty of indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sun, though—it can turn your terrarium into a mini oven and cook your plants!
  5. Maintenance: Ensure the glass is always sparkling clean for a brighter ambiance and clearer view. Regularly trim back any overgrown plants to keep the space open and vibrant.

Remember to give your plants a little twirl now and then to ensure they're growing evenly on all sides. And hey, if you spot any pesky pests or signs of disease, quickly give the affected plant a time-out to keep your green buddies safe and sound.

Just a touch of love and attention can transform your indoor garden - lush foliage, tiny greens, or a magical terrarium micro-ecosystem - into a thriving oasis, bringing a vibrant slice of nature into your living space.
