Indoor plants without Sunlight

Baby Tears 3As the winter months set in, it’s good to keep some lively bursts of color around the house to help perk up the space. Here are two plants to consider that add a little whimsy to your indoor wintery spaces:

Baby Tears: Because of its spreading, creeping form, baby tears (Soleirolia soleirolii) works especially well when allowed to drape over the edge of a pot or systematically pinched off to create a mound of tight green leaves.

How to Care for Baby Tears-

Temperature: 60 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit (16 to 24 degrees Celsius).
Light: Bright to filtered indirect sunlight.Baby Tears 2 The soil should be barely moist at all times. Always use room-temperature water.
Soil: Use a good general-purpose potting soil that retains water but also drains well. Well-aerated soil allows the roots to have some breathing room. If the soil is packed tightly, add some sand or perlite along with some peat moss to give the roots plenty of room. Use a pot with a hole in the bottom so excess water can drain out.
Zee Zee Plant 2 high. Mist your plant often to keep it looking its best at all times. Place pebbles or bigger stones in a dish under the pot; this will allow the excess water to create humidity around the plant without your overwatering.
Feeding: Balanced fertilizer if desired, though some growers state that fertilizer is unnecessary.
Pruning: Pinch off the dead leaves and keep the plant well pruned to maintain its bushy appearance.

Zee Zee Plant: When the Zee Zee plant is small, it has stalks that remain fairly upright, though as it grows you can encourage the stalks to bow, for an elegant decorative effect, especially when the plant is displayed on a stand in a low planter. A small Zee Zee plant’s erect stalks and shiny leaves make it the perfect centerpiece plant, not just because it will tolerate a moderately lit spot on the dining room table, but also because it’s a slow grower and rarely needs repotting.

Like any other creature, squirrel populations rise and fall in response to conditions. Water, territory, habitat and disease are just a few factors. Most of these are out of the control of the individual gardener. We often like the same foods, and our territories overlap, so this is where the friction is felt.
Luring squirrels out of our areas is problematic for two reasons: the first is that they are often impacted for territory by the time we notice their damage, so the likelihood that no neighboring squirrels move in is small. The original tenant will probably return because it won't find vacancies nearby
