Christmas is over, and some people have taken down their holiday decorations. It may make the house look bare, but there is no need for that! Houseplants are a great way to keep your home looking lively!

Pike Nurseries stopped by Good Day Atlanta on Friday to fill us in the care of houseplants!

  • Benefits of Houseplants
    • Houseplants are a great way to decorate your home and give it some life
    • Most houseplants also help clean the air of toxins, making your home healthier
  • Determining Your Light
    • The only thing you need to know when you come to Pike Nurseries to select your houseplant is what type of light the plant will receive
    • There's an easy way to determine your lighting condition:
      • Take a piece of white paper and hold your hand about 8 inches above the paper
        •  High Light: If you can clearly see the shadow from your hand and it has some definition
        • Medium Light: There is a blurred shadow
        • Low Light: No shadow
  • Houseplant Options:
    • High Light
      • Citrus
      • Kalanchoe
      • Succulents/Cactus
      • Asparagus Fern
    • Medium Light
      • Orchids
      • Bamboo
      • Dracaena (some varieties)
    • Low Light
      • Sanseveria
      • ZZ Plant
