Space Constraints

Think about the locations of your new indoor plants in your space. Is the shelf that the plants will sit on fairly close to the ceiling? Is your living room big and open or small and cozy? The size of your space and the plant’s location will change what you’re looking for when selecting your new plant.

Light Conditions

Once you know where the indoor plants will be situated, consider the quality of light in those areas. If there’s direct sunlight most of the day in that area you’ll want to choose an indoor plant that thrives on lots of light. For low light areas, you’ll want to choose plants that do well in the shade.


Indoor plants make great decorations and add to the aesthetic of any room. Spend time wandering Nick’s Garden Center to explore the different kinds of indoor plants you can choose from and consider what colors, textures, and fragrances you’d like to add to your space.

Caring for Your Indoor Plants

With your indoor plants happy in their new home, it’s time to focus on long-term care. Make sure the pots you’ve selected for your indoor plants have good drainage, as over or under watering your plant can eventually kill it. Keep the potting soil moist, but not soaking wet. Each indoor plant will require different amounts of water and succulents often need a period of dryness between watering. Allow your plant to acclimate to its location without moving it around too much. This allows the plant to grow in response to the light in that location.
