How to Buy an Indoor Plant (What to Look For)

#Plant Care

It is important to make sure that a plant is healthy before you purchase it, especially as a beginner. While some amazing green thumbs are able to “bring a plant back to life” and help it flourish again, many others face the task as an uphill battle. As several plants are finicky about being moved in the first place, give yourself (and the plant) the best chance for success by observing it in the shop.


Don’t be afraid to ask the florist or nursery worker for additional information about the plant. As species grow in different ways depending on your region, they may be able to give you insights for success. Make sure you know the correct watering and fertilization procedures. Take any information they can give you. Happy Planting.
