Helping Your House Plants Enjoy Summer
As the weather warms up, consider giving your houseplants a vacation outdoors. With a little care, your houseplants can thrive on your patio, balcony, or deck. But if you expect nighttime temperatures to fall below 40 degrees, plan on bringing your plants indoors at night. Houseplants generally do not like direct sunlight. They will usually get enough reflected light by being outdoors even when they are in the shade all day. Being outdoors will dry out your houseplants more quickly, so be sure to water more frequently. Be prepared to re-pot some of your houseplants when you finally do need to bring them back in for the winter. They usually will grow larger and need larger pots after the warm summer months.
