It’s Summer – and that means your houseplants are probably being a little too needy. Bright light can be harsh, increased temperatures may be stressful, and your plants must work hard to stay active and blooming. I thought this would be a great time to explore which of our products are drought-tolerant and won’t be a hassle even during our hottest months!
We just distributed our annual shipment of ferns! The Boston Fern is such a well-loved product of ours, and for good reason. Boston Ferns are drought-tolerant but thrive with some humidity (does that climate sound familiar?). We sell these in hanging baskets, but they can easily be transplanted to pots for a dramatic look or into the ground for landscape appeal.
What else says Summer like a Sunflower? These bright and cheery flowers may require some increased water attention, but you don’t have to worry about how it will fare in the heat! Sunflowers love 8+ hours of direct light and will tolerate less. If you’re looking for summer blooms, we recommend this classic.
Succulents are the queens of drought – they like to fully dry out before a thorough watering making them the ideal plant for summertime. Not to mention, they are simply very cute! We offer a wide variety of succulents all requiring the same care, so we recommend snagging a few and creating your own succulent garden. Just be sure any pot you use for transplanting has adequate drainage.
Summertime makes for a ton of happy roses. Our mini roses provide a low maintenance alternative to caring for full-size outdoor roses. They love bright light and regular waterings, but will make up for your efforts with frequent, plentiful blooms.
Much like our succulents, Kalanchoes like to dry out between thorough waterings. If succulents are too plain for you, grab a Kalanchoe to get your flower fix without increased laboring. Kalanchoe produce beautiful clusters of flowers that can last months with proper care.
Our Pothos Hanging Baskets are a year-round product because they are so adaptable! If you have one, I’m sure you’ve noticed that forgetting about it for a week or two (or longer—whoops!) doesn’t seem to do much damage. Just one recovery watering and it’s perked right up. We sell an assortment of varieties, so pick a few and watch their vines compete for length!
We have faith in all our products, but if you are looking for ease of care, but big rewards this summer, you can’t go wrong with this group of winners.
