Most plants love being next to the window - watching the birds and passers-by. But remember, windows can amplify the sun’s heat, so try and shade your interior plants during the hotter days to stop them from drying out or dying.

DO NOT SMOTHER YOUR CHILDREN! The biggest killer of plants is overwatering. It's far easier to revive a plant that's under-watered than overwatered. If you’re ever unsure, always remember less is more.

Everybody needs a little TLC from time to time, and your plants are no exception. Prune, deadhead and style your plants every now and then to keep them in the freshest condition. Oh, and give them a spin now and again...that way the leaves will get equal amounts of sunlight and won't get jealous :)

Try to avoid emptying your cups of tea into your plant pots. While this might sound like something someone might do in an office, it’s essential to avoid this; especially if you have sugar since little bugs will love to feed on the stuff.

Unfortunately, your plants will not.

There’s plenty of choices out there when it comes to plants. Some require lots of attention and nurturing whereas others can mostly be left to their own devices. Check and consider your schedule and how much time you can spend on maintenance before choosing the newest member of your #plantfam.

Unlike people, plants aren’t huge fans of going on holiday… so it’s best to keep them stationary in the same place so they can get used to their new environment and home.
