How To Adult: A Handy Guide To Keeping Your Indoor Plants Alive

Having a green thumb is a highly covetable trait. I’d venture to say many of us get sweaty palms at the thought of having to keep a plant alive considering we often struggle to feed and water our own bodies. But it’s not as daunting as it seems – all you need is a nudge in the right direction.

With the holidays fast approaching, there’s never been a better time to knowledge up on some basic plant skills so as to avoid coming home to sad, thirsty or deceased house plants. As part of our ‘How To Adult’ video series, we’ve got top tips for caring for indoor plants like peace lilies, fiddle leaf fig trees, jade plants, devil’s ivy and (everyone’s favourite) succulents.

Have you ever wondered how much water succulents actually need? Or whether the soil should be completely dry before watering again? Also, seriously, how much sun is too much sun? Check out the video below, and you’ll be Jamie Durie in no time.
