Most of our favourite houseplants originally come from tropical climates, where they flourish in humid conditions.
Our warm, dry homes cause them to lose moisture quickly and can cause leaves to wilt and crisp, or flower buds to drop before opening. This is why regularly using a houseplant mist spray can really give them a boost, especially during colder months where central heating dries out the air in our homes. It’s important to keep your plants healthy by providing an environment they’re comfortable in.
To use, shake the bottle well, and then mist the leaves until it looks like a fine dew has settled on them and then gently spritz the top of the compost to moisten it. Take care to avoid directly spraying flowers as excessive moisture can upset them.
Aim to mist 2 to 3 times each week, year-round. To take your houseplant care to the next level combine with our Plantsmith Plant Food Tonic
Always be sure that your plants are not sitting in water, as this will rot the roots and we would hate for this to be the cause of death to your lovely houseplants.
