Now that the weather is turning colder, you probably have some plants you want to move indoors. But if you just put them anywhere, your plants may not survive. Here’s how to help them transition.
Of course your plants will get less light indoors, so help them stay healthy by slowly reducing their light exposure. Scout out the sunniest, medium sunny, and low sunlight spots in your home and make room for the plants to live there for a couple of weeks at a time.
Move the plants to each area with less sun gradually to minimise the shock to their system and give them time to adapt to indoor, warmer conditions. If you need to, add a few calendar reminders so you remember to move your plants to the next spot with enough time for them to adjust. Once they’re indoors, your plants may also need less water than when they were outside, so adjust your watering levels as needed.
