Plant Care Tip #41: Traveling for the holidays


The latest in plant care tips for keeping your foliage happy and healthy, brought to you by premium plant delivery service Léon & George.

It's that time of year again where we're all packing up and heading home or on vacation for the holidays, and just like any other living breathing relationship, we need to make sure our plants are prepped and ready for us to be gone! Read on for some survival tips that will help keep our plant babies healthy and happy while we're away. 

  • Water your plants right before leaving town to maximize time before needing to be watered again. Since it's winter, most plants can go a bit longer in between waterings, but remember to check on each individual plant's needs.

  • Group your plants together in the center of a smaller room that still gets natural light. This increases humidity and allows for longer periods between waterings.

  • Decorative moss or rocks can help retain moisture in the soil requiring less frequent watering.

  • Trim foliage on more mature plants to keep them from growing wild, also minimizing the need for water consumption. 

  • For periods of 2 weeks or more, politely ask/bribe a friend to plant sit in exchange for enjoying the benefits of your extra purified air:)
