Best indoor plants large

Q: I have some large indoor
  1. Be sure that your plants get light. Plants need light! Identify how much natural light is available (and needed) for plants, or whether it is possible to have an indoor grow light placed next to the plant. A window is an ideal place but make sure you have a saucer or tray underneath the plants to catch the drips from watering and condensation which often occurs at night on the leaves.


  2. Water them as needed. Plants need water, but not too much nor too little. When you water, water it until you can see it come out of the bottom of the pot. Never put plants in pots that don't have at least one hole in the bottom! Be realistic about how much attention you have to give to your house plants, and plan accordingly. Larger plants in large pots need watering less often than plants in very small pots, which will dry out every couple of days. Cactus and succulents need less watering than thin-leaved or flowering plants (although when cactus produce flowers they need a bit more water than otherwise). Go to a reputable greenhouse and research different kinds of plants for their light, space and temperature needs and choose a plant that looks beautiful to you but is also suitable for your space and time available to care for it.
  3. Watch out for plant pests. Sometimes plants attract pests - insects that eat the plant and cause it to lose vigor. Some plants are less susceptible to insects than others. Plants with thin leaves tend to get spider mites and whitefly, others get scale or mealy bugs. Learn how to identify these pests and how to treat them (usually a soil-drenching systemic insecticide will do the job, but not always, so it's important to learn about these things.) Mold and viruses can also affect plants as well, but they are less common. There is lots of information on the internet on how to treat these maladies.
  4. Use a nice pot. A decorative pot or planter that coordinates with the furnishings can really enhance the beauty of the plant. It helps the plant a lot if the pot or planter is on a tray with about an inch of aquarium gravel in it. When you water the plant, the water goes into the saucer and evaporates around the plant, making the surrounding air a bit more humid. This is especially helpful to the plant in winter. Make sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of the pot, because if the pot ends up sitting in water, the plant's roots will rot and the plant can die. Place a trivet underneath the tray so that...
  • Once you have success with some easy plants, try some harder ones: African violets or orchids, for example. They are very rewarding to grow and there are many special interest groups, both online and sometimes in your town, who will be happy to help you learn to grow them well and enjoy propagating them.
  • Only purchase healthy-looking plants! If a plant looks sick, it's probably too late to save it, unless you already have a lot of experience in these things, or if it's a very rare or valuable plant and know someone who is knowledgeable about them and can help advise you on its care and restoration to full health.
  • Rotate the plant every once in a while so that all parts of the plant get some light. If the light in the window is very intense (put your hand in the window; if your hand gets really hot quickly there in the summer, it's probably too hot for most plants too; ditto the winter and cold) find a spot for the plant about twelve inches away from the window if it's too hot or cold in the window. It's ok to pull the curtains at night to keep your rooms warm; just remember to open them in the morning so your plants get their several daily hours of light!
  • Taking a damp washcloth once or twice a year to the leaves of large plants helps them look nice. Never apply any plant polish to the tops of leaves - that seals the pores and makes it hard for the plant to breathe. NEVER EVER apply plant polish to the undersides of the leaves - that's where the plant does the most of its breathing, and you can kill a plant quickly if those are clogged. If you have to shine the (tops ONLY! of) leaves of a large plant, a bit of 2% milk on a soft cloth will leave a bit of shine without clogging up the leaves' pores, and it's a lot less expensive than a bottle of leaf shine.

Hello, I am a college student and dependent/domestic half of a 12 year partnership. My partner has decided to sell the home I live in and he want's me to move out. For 2 years he has been working in Miami and living in one of his condos with someone else, and now I believe this is his way of dissolving our partnership. Nothing is in my name.
Here's my predicament;
I have no car, live in West Marin and he has stopped paying insurance/registration on the Range Rover I was driving (in his name). I cannot afford to operate such a vehicle. The credit cards have stopped working. My food and diet has needed to change and my pell grant will be depleted soon
