This list of plants has been selected because of their ability to adapt and preform well in the office or home and Denver’s dry climate. These plants do very well with medium to lower light levels and basic care. Some of the plants on our list of Great Plants for Denver are here because they do an exceptional job of cleaning our air.
General Watering Guidelines
As a rule of thumb, you should water your houseplants only once a week. The amount of water you apply at each watering is the key to success. Follow the guidelines listed below per the recommendations for each plant in our list. Remember that watering on the exact same day of the week will help maintain a consistent watering pattern which is very desirable in growing healthy plants.
Watering Style A
Water on top of the soil thoroughly until water comes out bottom drain holes. Apply enough water to insure that the soil remains moist until the next watering.
Watering Style B
Water on top of the soil thoroughly until water comes out bottom drain holes. Apply only enough water that will allow the soil to dry back slightly between watering. Dry back slightly. Slight moisture left in soil.
Watering Style C
Water on top of the soil thoroughly until water comes out bottom drain holes. Apply only enough water that will allow the soil to dry back between watering. Soil should only be dry for a day or two. Never let the plant wilt.
High Light: Bright light means a sunny south or west facing window with bright, direct or very bright diffused light for most of the day.
Medium Light: Indirect light can be either an east facing bright window or in the interior of a room with a south or west facing window that receives full light.
Low Light: Rooms with north facing windows, rooms partially shaded by outdoor trees and plants placed far from a window, would all qualify as low light.
