We all love a nice pop of color, but especially so during winter when we’re spending more time indoors.
At Westwood Gardens, we just received a beautiful, new shipment of tropical plants: hanging baskets, succulents, cactus and more! Here are a few of our favorites for vibrant color:
Purple Anthurium Care: Prefers a well-lit spot, but not direct sunlight. Prefers a humid environment, so if your home is on the drier side, feel free to mist every few days. Keep the soil moist, but don’t let the plant sit in water.
Bromeliad ‘Guzmania’ Care: Very similar to the Purple Anthurium. Bright light, but not direct. Bromeliads receive their moisture from their leaves, so keep the central ‘urn’ (the center of the flower) filled about 1/4 with water, and feel free to mist a few times a week as well. Note: Flush out the ‘urn’ ever 1-2 months to prevent bacteria buildup.
Rubber Plant ‘Ruby Red’
‘Ruby Red’ Rubber Plant Care: Also likes bright light, but will tolerate lower light rooms. Keep soil moist, but do not allow to stand in water. Leaves can be polished with a soft cloth and tepid water.
Succulent Care: Thrives in bright light…the more the better! Allow soil to dry out in between waterings. Do not allow to sit in water.
Aglaonema Care: Want a low-maintenance houseplant? This is for you. Does well in low-light conditions and cooler home temperatures. Keep soil moist; tolerates regular home humidity.
Red Bamboo Ginger
Red Bamboo Ginger Care: A low-maintenance plant; prefers bright, indirect light and moist soil.
Croton Care: Water only when top of the soil is dry. Prefer bright, indirect light, but do not like to be moved, so pick a spot and try to leave it there. When you do water, do so thoroughly, and allow the soil to dry out again. Keep out of drafts/cold temps.
Come see us at any of our locations and let us help you choose some houseplants to add some color to your home!
