Tropical plants make excellent houseplants and grow well indoors. Many come from tropical forests where they live under the shade of large trees. This means that they don’t require an abundance of light to survive indoors. Tropical house plants require watering approximately once per week which makes them a low maintenance addition to your home. Tropical plants like their soil to stay evenly moist but not wet to the touch. Overwatering is the main reason for a tropical plant’s demise.

Fertilizing your tropical plant with an indoor plant fertilizer during the spring and summer is beneficial to your plant’s wellbeing.
