Rotating your plants in the winter


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

Rotating indoor plants is always a good idea, but during shorter winter days and sometimes gloomy periods, it’s more necessary than ever. Here are a few tips for how and why to rotate your houseplants:

  • Does one side of your plant look nicer than the other? Try leaving the less bushy side facing the window for a bit longer than usual to even things out. Hint: You can always turn your plant back around when people visit to put its best face forward. 

  • Do any of your plant stems seem to be leaning or growing more on the sides closer to the windows? Plants will always follow the sun, so this is normal if you're not rotating them for even light exposure.

  • While you're there, take a second to dust off the leaves so your plants can soak in more light, and give any brown tips a trim as these tend to appear more during winter.
