As the seasons change, so do your houseplant’s needs. Indoor vegetation is heavily affected by outdoor changes, so to ensure your plants bloom all through the summer, now is the time to start preparing for the upcoming season.

Though some sun-loving plants like succulents and cacti are well adapted to high temperatures, plants that are kept indoors are not acclimated to the extremes of a summer heat wave. Leafy tropicals are particularly susceptible to damage from heat, and if too severely damaged, might not recover.

There’s plenty you can do in advance of and during the summer months to make sure indoor plants survive.
