Tropical plants are typically found in lush tropical or jungle environments. These environments have enough sunlight, water, and nutrients that they are able to support a vast array of plant species. Because of the vast variety of life supported by these regions, there are several niche growing conditions for these plants, so it is important to understand the specific growing requirements of your plant.
Low Light Plants
These plants can withstand a range of sunlight, from low to high light. Allow plants to dry before watering, then water thoroughly. These plants include:
Spider Plants (cannot tolerate fertilizer, it will burn the plant)
Medium Care, Medium Light Plants
These plants are a little more specific in their care. They can have up to 3 hours direct sunlight a day, and should be placed;
Within 1 foot of a north facing window
Within 3 feet of an east or west facing window
Within 8 feet of a south facing window
These plants should be allowed to dry slightly, then watered throughly. They are used to regular rain, but also withstand some dry spells. Do not allow to dry completely. They enjoy high humidity, and should be misted regularly.
