Plant FAQ

So about Light... When we list the light requirements we are generally listing the minimum amount of light required! Plants love light and most of our plants will thrive with as much indirect natural light as you can give them! Notice I said indirect light...

 

What is low light?

Low light doesn't mean no light! Low light is anywhere in a room with a window that gets natural light.

What is medium light?
Down Arrow Icon Minus Icon

Medium light is near a north or east facing window but doesn't have to be right in. Medium light plants CAN be in a north or east facing window and will love you for it. Right in a west or south facing window with too much direct light may burn your plant!

Have you ever been in a bright room but you can't see the sun? That is indirect light. The type of light a plant would get in a forest under the canopy.

What is direct light?

If you can see the sun, you are getting direct light.

What is high light?
Down Arrow Icon Minus Icon

High light is directly in a north or east facing window, or very close to a south or west facing window. These plants need a lot of natural light!

What does the number next to my plant mean?

That number is the diameter of the plastic grower's pot your plant was grown in! In general, 4" and 6" are pretty small table or windowsill size plants. 8" and 10" plants are pretty big and can easily be floor plants. 14" and 17" plants are huge and will be very noticeable in any room!

What size planter should I get for my plant?
Down Arrow Icon Minus Icon

In general for our plants and pots, the number next to the plant needs to be the same or smaller than the size of the pot. A rule of thumb you often hear is get a pot 2” bigger! This is a good rule

What if my pet eats my plant?
Down Arrow Icon Minus Icon

Our plants are not intended to be eaten by your furry friends! But sometimes it happens and most of our plants will just cause an upset stomach, vomitting, or indigestion if they just eat a leaf or two or four.

We also carry some completely non-toxic plants such as the ponytail palm, peperomia's, and spider plants!

If you need more information about the effects of your pet eating a particular plant we suggest you visit the ASPCA's guide to toxic and non-toxic plants! Link here:
