Succulents, herbs and trees are part of my indoor gardening. Several of these plants were outside for the summer. Before I bring them into my home, I water the plant leaves and root ball with a liquid bug killer (Bug B-Gone). I let them sit in our garage for a week and then put them in my south facing windows. Since I use my herbs for cooking, I DO NOT use chemicals to kill the bugs. I just wash the leaves (both sides) several times with dish soap spray and completely soak the root ball of the plant. Then I rinse the herb with clear water. Now it can go in my south facing windows for the long Wisconsin Winter. Brrrrrrrrr! I water my succulents once a month until Spring. Then I increase the watering and start using a stronger brew of WORM TEA. The other houseplants I water as needed, just to make sure they don’t dry out. I give them a mild WORM TEA with every watering. I will start some lettuces soon.

    Hi, I couldn't quite catch the name of the plant at 9.22, could you tell me what it is please? I had a similar plant years ago which was lost in a house move, I'd like to replace it but I never knew the name and I haven't seen another since. Thanks for the video, you have some fabulous plants :)

    Wow! You have an amazing selection of house plants and succulents. I love the colander planters 🙂 I am terrible with any indoor plants, they always die, I will be watching your vids and hopefully be leaded in the right direction. Have a great day 🙂 (I subbed, too!)

    Thank you for visiting my indoor garden. I love stainless steel, aluminum and rusted items. I use all of them in my gardens. Gardening on a budget is what I stay focused on. Smiles, Lark

    i just bought a large dracena some of the leaves fall off from time to time i will let it dry out between waterings.have not needed to water much seems moist.well all my other plants i have always used tap water.i never let it sit i put the plant in the tub water and let it drain.i have it when i lived at my old house for 4 months and when it came here did not do as well also that same thing happened with a huge umbrella plant too but its not losing as many stems and leaves at it was quite lanky

    Thank you for the kind words. Could your Peace Lilly not like the water you are using? Is it tap water? Softened? Too cold? Is the soil kept too moist? I had that trouble with my dracena, I think the common name is 'Corn Plant'. I made sure I let it dry out between waterings and didn't let it sit in a saucer of water.

    i love your plants and your home is lovely.i also have alot of plants and need some advice on a peace lily plant i bought a year ago was large with no flowers on it.about 5 months ago the leaves were turning yellow brown and im clipping them off.not sure what to do i water regularly and keep it in my bedroom not near windows since its a shade loving plant.how can i save it? its 10 feet from a western window and gets some exposure from the two small north windows higher up 4 feet near.

    Thank you Shadow. This year I decided not to bring into the house as many plants as years past. It gets to be too much work. I guess that is a sign of growing older or is it WISER? LOL
