Plant Relocation Tips
Bring your live plants from the garden indoors for the winter, to give your home fresh oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, which generally rises in your home during the winter months.
When choosing plants from the outdoors that are suitable for life indoors, such as geraniums, herbs, or caladiums, look for ones with minimal insect issues, to avoid unwanted problems in the future. However, if you do bring in unwanted pests and insects, we have you covered. Our Safer® Brand Houseplant Insect Killer features an orbital sprayer you can use from any angle, even upside down, to eliminate those unwanted house guests. Also, make sure your containers are large enough to support the plant’s root system.
When moving a plant to its new home, dig around the plant so that you are able to get as much of the root mass as possible. Place the plant in its new container with the roots spread out as much as you are able, and cover with soil.
Remember, the plant’s new environment may not receive as much sunlight as it once did. Condition your plant for its new lighting conditions by gradually moving it from a natural light source (a window, door, etc.) to the final destination for the houseplant (i.e. a counter top, kitchen table, etc.).

Although houseplants bring great beauty to your home, you should be aware that some may cause problems to your family, pets, visitors, or even yourself. A houseplant is considered poisonous when it causes an adverse reaction in humans or animals, when ingested in small or moderate amounts. If you believe you or a loved one has ingested a poisonous houseplant immediately contact your local Poison Control Center.

Dress up your home with Houseplants
Buying a bunch of containers for houseplants can become an expensive task, but it does not need to be. Searching garage sales, flea markets, and local thrift shops is a great way to find containers that can be revamped by a simple sanding and a fresh coat of spray paint!
