FAQS

How often should indoor plants be watered?

It all depends on the type of indoor plant, for example a cacti or succulent plant would need far less watering than say an orchid. The best thing to do, would be to check the information tag on your plant and see what the grower recommends in order for your plant to thrive. 

What's the best Houseplant for a beginner?

A good place to start would be with either a cacti or succulent plant. These require far less “hands on” care and can quite happily be left to their own devices. They won’t have as much of the “wow” factor as an orchid, for example. But they are a good way of getting to grips with successfully caring for an indoor plant. 

Do indoor plants improve air quality?

Yes, they do. Not only do they improve air quality, but they have also been proven to have a positive effect on mental health.
