Office plants and how to keep them from overthrowing

Reply Thu 8 Dec, 2016 11:54 am
humanity in a violent revolution (as well as dying from dehydration, overfeeding, etc...).

I anointed myself as the caretaker to my file room office plants. Even bought a new pot and threw in a lovely jade plant.

I water them once a week and throw in Miracle Grow every other week. The spider plant gets watered a bit less.

My jade plant shares the pot with a vine plant. It has the best sun exposure of the three potted plants.

All three are on old fashion office heater/air conditioner units so the soil gets pretty dry in the two smaller pots. Should I water the plants more often (when I notice the dry soil) or keep to the schedule and ignore the soil between watering?


What advice do you follow for office plants? Give or take.... What kinds of office plants are your favorites? Which ones are the worstestestest?

We have spider plants, and they thrive on once a week watering which really douses them. Not sure about the others.

Jade plants need little watering. No fertilizer.

The other two need watering. And because they are near a heating vent, twice a week. Put a dish under all plants to catch overflow.

Get some Osmocote fertilizer. Easier to deal with.

The Miracle Grow I use is really easy. I put a tiny scoop of it (blue crystals) into my milk jug I use and fill it with water (and shake). It dissolves quite easily.
