Plant Care Tips for Pet-Friendly & Tropical Houseplants

Do you want to bring some greenery into your home, but don't think you have the time or know-how to grow plants? Don't worry! Taking care of houseplants can be easy and fun if you choose pet-friendly and tropical varieties. Before getting started, it's important to understand the basics of taking care of these plants.

In addition, fertilize your plants every few weeks to months depending on the type. You will also need to provide proper air circulation for your plant; this can be done by opening windows or placing a fan close by.
