Winter House Plant Care

There was a time when house plants more or less stopped growing in the winter and in old gardening books they sometimes talked about resting plants in the winter by almost drying out the compost. That was in the days when houses didn’t have such efficient heating, but with modern day central heating house plants will carry on growing through the winter, albeit a bit slower. Because of this house plants should be checked fairly regularly to keep them in good condition. Gardening Expert Martin Fish explains how.

  1. Plants take in CO2 and give off Oxygen, but most people tend to forget that during the night most plants actually reverse this cycle (light dependent vs light dependent reactions, high school biology, yuck!)…so my question is, would having a plant in your room increase your risk of O2 deprivation and suffocation during the night? i know it sounds silly but it makes sence in my head 🙂

  2. Hey thanks for the tips. Question hoe do you prune a peace lily stem. I bought one for my mom on mother's day i'm a total idiot when it comes to plants. The flowers are tal and dead now so where do I cut it???
