Fresh House plants
When deciding where to place a plant you have to keep in mind that the south-facing windows recieve much more light than were you would place a north-facing one. Observe the amounts of morning and afternoon sun they get before putting plants near them. Too much sun can cuase them to dry quickly . Turning the pot a half-turn every day or two will keep the plants growth even, since foliage automatically bends towards the light. Light is more intense in the summer than in the winter. You may need to move sensitive plants in hot months. Repotting plants is a great idea if you want to keep them healthy. A great time to repot indoor plants is in the Winter.
