Long weekend PSA: stop overwatering your plants!! Did you know that most beloved houseplants die due to an improper balance of watering in relation to how much light they receive? If you're going out of town this weekend, don't overcompensate by giving your plants extra water!

LET THE SOIL DRY OUT

  • If you're noticing browning or yellowing edges, the damage is unfortunately irreversible, but you can stop it from getting worse.

  • Let your plant's soil dry out for a few extra days to weeks.

  • If you forgot to water your plants and you've already left for the weekend, they might be thanking you right now.

  • When you come back, pop them in the shower and give them a nice thorough watering - but feel deep into the soil first to make sure it's dry!

Safe travels and staycations to all our fellow plant lovers!
