4 things you can do to keep your houseplants happy through winter

Let’s face it, keeping houseplants happy and healthy at home is difficult at the best of times. But throw winter in the mix? It can become even trickier! Our southern state friends (Victoria, Tassie, ACT...we’re looking at you) usually struggle the most! Make these 4 simple changes to keep those green babes on the right path to spring. 


But first, why do houseplants struggle in winter? 

Most of your common houseplants come from subtropical regions. If they were a person, they’d be at their happiest sipping Pina Coladas beachside, with the warm humid breeze blowing through their hair. Instead, they’re hit with bitter draughts and dry, stale heating air. It just doesn’t fit their vibe.

Tip 1: Move your houseplants away from the heater.

Dry breezes = dry skin and chapped lips. It’s the same for plants! Dry heating air removes vital moisture from the leaves, and the temperature change can shock them. Move your plants away from radiators, air-conditioners and even open windows, and look out for drooping stems and crispy leaves.


Tip 2: Group your plants together

Ever wondered where that eerie mist sitting above a rainforest canopy comes from? Many plants emit moisture from their foliage, which increases the humidity around them. By grouping your plants together, you’ll create your own mini microclimate, and your plants will be happier for it! Monitor your plants if you're doing this through the warmer seasons, where they need airflow. 


Tip 3: Switch to a bioactive fertiliser

Standard plant foods and fertilisers should not be used throughout winter, as they can sit in the soil and convert to salt (which ultimately will kill your plant). Instead, shift to something with beneficial bacteria and fungi, like our Grow Concentrate or Support Pellets, which can keep your plants happy all year round. 


Tip 4: Watch your water

The number 1 killer over winter is giving your plants a drink too often. Cut your watering regime in half; if it’s every 2 weeks in spring, make it every month in winter. You can regularly test your soil if you’re unsure.
