Growing plants indoors helps us feel good in so many ways.  House plants let us reconnect with Nature no matter where we are.  They can ease anxiety and brighten our mood.  And healthy houseplants are constantly working for us, cleaning the air we breathe.

Tagawa Gardens carries thousands of house plants year 'round…. plants big enough to fill an empty space…. or small enough to create a tiny landscape just right for a desk or countertop.  Come see us for the plants and the advice that can bring your indoor rooms to life!

What are the "hot topics" in Tagawa's Houseplant Department?

  1. Cacti & succulents
  2. Bromeliads and air plants (Tillandsias)
  3. "Fresh Air Plants" that clean the air
  4. African violets and orchids

What questions do we hear most often?

Question #1: What are the black bugs flying around my houseplants?"

Answer: They're fungus gnats.  They're harmless, but can be a nuisance. Take them as a sign that your soil is probably staying too wet.

Gently loosen the top layer of soil to help it dry out.  Don't water the plant again until the top one-third of the soil ball is dry.  Test the soil by inserting your finger or use a moisture meter.

Here is a handout sheet about Fungus Gnats!

Question #2:  "How often should I water my plants?

Answer:It depends on where the plant is being grown. Is the room warm or cool? Does it get lots of sun or very little? Learn to "read" the plant. Check the plant weekly until you understand its needs. When in doubt, go back to the "one-third" rule mentioned in answer #1. Whenever the top one-third of the soil ball is dry to the touch, water the plant thoroughly, until water comes through the drainage hole at the bottom. Learn to water your plants based on their needs, not your personal schedule.

Question #3:  When should I transplant my houseplant?

Answer:Follow the 50/50 rule. Knock the plant out of its pot. When half or more of what you expose is roots rather than soil, consider re-potting. But remember that many houseplants would rather be slightly crowded than have a pot that is too big, with soil that stays too wet for too long. When it's time to "pot up," increase the pot size one step at a time. For example, go from a six-inch pot only to an eight-inch pot. Your plant will be healthier in the long run.
