Q.How Do We Choose Plants For Our Living Room?

ishika garg added on November 22, 2023 | Answered

Hello, recently I shifted to a new house and purchased a few indoor plants like areca palm, zz plant, and ficus plant. I am trying to figure out where to keep them. I read indoor plants need humidity and low light. So, I kept them in a corner of my room where filtered lights fall and I water them every alternate day. Is this sufficient for these plants to survive?

While your choice of a corner with filtered light is good, it's essential to consider each plant's specific needs. Areca palms prefer bright, indirect light, while ZZ plants and ficus plants can tolerate lower light levels. Watering every alternate day might be too frequent; it's generally better to let the top inch of soil dry out between waterings. Additionally, consider the humidity levels in your home, as areca palms appreciate higher humidity. Adjusting watering frequency and monitoring light conditions according to each plant's preferences will contribute to their overall health and survival.
