Here at The Brass Hand, we love having our spaces full of tropical houseplants!
Some we sell in the shop are Pothos varieties, Hoyas, Spider plants, Snake plants/Cylindrica, Fittonia (nerve plants), and many more!
Tropical plants grow naturally in hot & humid climates. They can also be grown as houseplants. “Tropical” means they do not like temps below 50 degrees F.
How To Care For Your Houseplants
Light: Light requirements vary between tropicals. General light requirements are bright, indirect, and filtered light.
Water: One of the most important factors, watering too much or too little can lead to the death of many plants. Finding the right balance is important to plant care. A good rule of thumb, the thicker the leaves are, the less water the plant needs; while the thinner the leaves are, the more water it needs. Additionally, plants that get more sunlight also need to be watered more frequently.
When you water, you should always water thoroughly until water comes out the bottom of your planter’s drainage hole. This makes sure that the entire root system is able to access to the water and your plant is well-hydrated between waterings.
Fertilizer: We recommend fertilizing your indoor plants when the plant is actively growing. We mix The Brass Hand Plant Food fertilizer in-house.
To Use: Thoroughly mist soil and then water as usual.
Use once per month during growing season.
