Learn how to care for sun-loving, tropical houseplants

Tropical houseplants are special because many of them love bright light! To keep them happy and healthy, you need to give them plenty of light and warmth. That means making sure they get enough hours of sunlight each day or using artificial lights if you can’t give them natural light. You also want to make sure the temperature in your home is comfortable for them – neither too hot nor too cold.

Water your tropical houseplants regularly and lightly fertilize them every few weeks with liquid plant food to give them extra nutrients. Make sure not to overwater or over-fertilize, as this can damage their roots and make it difficult for them to absorb the water and nutrients they need. When you water, always use lukewarm water instead of cold water so that it isn’t too much of a shock for your plants. As with any type of houseplant, be sure to check for pests like aphids or mealybugs, so you can treat them right away if needed! By following these simple tips, you can enjoy having beautiful tropical plants at home.
