Perfectly Combined Wood and Stone

Perfectly Combined Wood and Stone

Office Plants by Everything Grows just completed a plant installation for a new San Francisco Office.  The wood floors and furniture were perfectly matched with fiberstone and natural cement containers.  They provided the perfect natural design that the client was hoping for.  We can offer many stone options to create the perfect look for your space.

Direct Sun is Not Good for Indoor Plants

Direct Sun is Not Good for Indoor Plants

The indoor plant in the photos below was moved outside into the sun for just a few hours.  The leaves were badly damaged and will fail in a matter of weeks due to direct exposure to the sun.  Indoor plants have adjusted to interior lighting and will not typically adjust to the direct outdoor sunlight — this is true even with indoor plants that need a lot of light.  Sudden exposure to direct sunlight is too stressful so avoid the temptation to take an indoor plant outside to give it some light.

These leaves should be bright green with yellow variegated edges.  The brown is due to direct exposure to the sun.

Indoor plants thrive a bright indirect light from windows.  If your plant does not have access to light from windows, bright lights on for 12-18 hours per day will also work.

Different types of indoor plant require different amounts of light.

Poinsettia Care

Poinsettia Care

Red Poinsettia

Red Poinsettia

Poinsettias like to be in temperatures between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit and like bright indirect light.  Keep them away from drafts either warm or cold.  Poinsettias are thirsty plants that like lots of water and can go dry easily.  At the same time, you want to make sure the soil drains, because they will suffer if they are over watered too. Do not get water on the leaves or flowers — it could cause spotting or rot. They are brittle plants — brushing against them could damage the leaves, and bracts break off easily if bumped or not handled gently.  With proper care in a proper environment, the bloom will last up to 6 to 8 weeks.

Here is a bit of trivia on how the poinsettia came to the US and got its name:

Joel Robert Poinsett

Mr. Poinsett

Joel Roberts Poinsett came across the Poinsettia in the 1820s in Mexico while stationed there as US Ambassador.  Intrigued by the plant, he brought cuttings home cultivate on his farm in Greenville, North Carolina.  Because of its short bloom cycle over the holiday months, it became known as the Christmas flower and was named after him.

Also, did you know that Poinsettias are not poisonous?  They are not!
