Tropicals

You don't need to live in the tropics to have tropical plants in your living space! Enjoy these beautiful flowering plants year-round! 

Here are a few tips when bringing tropicals inside for winter:

 

  • Move your outdoor tropicals in containers to very shaded outdoor locations to prepare them for their move indoors, such as under a porch or covered patio, or under a large tree that casts dense shade. Acclimating your tropicals to lower light conditions while they are outside helps them adjust to the reduced light available in most homes.
     

  • Re-pot 4-6 weeks in advance of bringing them indoors.
     

  • Locate plants in or near windows or glass doors so that they get plenty of light.
     

  • Don't forget to feed!
