“So... how often do you water a jade plant?“ Our first watering tip is jade plants don’t like to be overwatered! Consistently over watering jade plants will kill them. Always be sure to check the jade plant soil before watering it, and water only when the soil is completely dry. To check if your jade succulent needs water, stick your finger one inch into the soil. If the soil is damp, don’t water it. It’s better to err on the side of under watering this plant. • • • • • #jade #jadeplant #succulent #succulentcare #greenthumb #tipsandtricks #green #succulove #wateringtips #bythings #indoorplants #igdc #madeindc #shopsmall #????

Ficus bonsai can be grown indoors, close to a sunny window where they may preferably get direct morning sunlight. Direct afternoon sun can sometimes burn the delicate leaves. Ficus trees don’t like cold drafts and, are not fond of sudden changes, so when you are making changes do so gradually. Using a tray of water under your bonsai to keep humidity levels up may be necessary when raising them indoors! . . . . . #ficus #bonsai #themoreyouknow???? #plantparenthood #greenthumb #plantcare #tipsandtricks #green #bythings #urbangardens #madeindc #shoplocal

Want a green thumb tip this afternoon? Some plants like this #ficus elastica can be sensitive to cold water... so simply fill a container of water the night before and let it sit overnight to prevent any root damage due to cold tap water! This also allows chlorine to evaporate... #bonus! . . . . . #tipsandtricks #greenthumb #houseplants #indoorgarden #green #bythings #igdc #madeindc❤️ #ficuselastica #plantcare #plants
