Indoor Plant Care Tips

  • Monitor houseplants for insect problems that often occur when plants become stressed due to insufficient light, overheated rooms or improper watering and fertilizing techniques.  Isolate new houseplants or gift plants before adding to your existing plants.  Pests to look for include spider mites, scale, mealybugs, whitefly and fungus gnats. Moana recommends Bonide Insecticidal Soap and Bonide Systemic Houseplant Insect Control (not for indoor citrus) for most insects. Use Bonide All Seasons Horticultural & Dormant Oil to control spider mites on indoor citrus.  Moana recommends Summit Mosquito Bits for control of fungus gnats.
  • Wipe dust off houseplants regularly; clean plants are healthier and less susceptible to disease and pest infestations.
