Questions About Plants
I am new to plants. What do I need to know to start? 

How often do I water my plant? 
There is an art and a science when watering plants. If the soil feels wet, moist or damp do not water. It is generally best for houseplants to dry out between watering. It is better to air on the side of too little water than too much. Overwatering happens mostly when plants are watered too frequently.
See our Plant Care section for more details  

How much light does my plant?
Most of the plants that we carry require medium to bright, indirect light. However, we do carry plant options that can tolerate low lighting.
See our Plant Care section for more details  

Will my plant look like the plant in the picture?
Yes and no! Your plant will look similar to the plant pictured on the product page. However, as with all products of nature, variations in size, shape and color are to be expected and are part of the plant’s beauty. Remember, these plants are bred to thrive and will become more lush and beautiful over time, given the proper care.
See our Plant Care section for more details  

Why are there blemishes with my pot?
Small batch pottery will have variations in color, texture, finish, and size. While we make every effort to display our containers as accurately as possible, there may be subtle differences from what is displayed online.
