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

ACs efficiently and luxuriously cool down our indoor spaces, but they also remove warmth and humidity that our leafy roommates crave. Like us, plants need simple adjustments to feel more comfortable during summer weather.

Air drafts  - check for air blowing directly on your plant. Consider temporarily moving your plant to a new spot or another room to protect it from the drastic changes in temperature.

Humidity - bring humidity back to your plant by misting its leaves when the air feels dry

Watering - dry air also causes your plants to be thirsty and drink more water. Check the soil more frequently to make sure it is not too dry (or too wet!)

If your plant has fading or wilting leaves, this may be a sign of its unhappiness with the air condition. You can safely remove these leaves close to the root, and follow the steps above to re-balance its comfort.
