Success with Houseplants

Tip description

Houseplants by Allen Buchinski
If you enjoy houseplants, Ernesto Sandoval, the Director of the UC Davis Botanical Conservatory can help. He has advice about selecting plants that tolerate the light and humidity levels of your home as well as tips about how to care for them. For instance:  Overwatering is the number one killer of houseplants. Allow succulents to dry completely between watering. Water leafy plants that recover easily from wilting when they start to droop. For more information, including many useful tips, watch his video presentation: Growing Houseplants
