Indoor plants need less water during the winter months. It’s time to water when the soil is dry an inch or 2 below the surface. It’s best to use water that is air temperature so the plant’s roots are not shocked from the temperature of cold water. Some drought-tolerant plants such as succulents may not need water at all during the winter.

Houseplants do best when the temperature in your home is steady, between 60 to 70 degrees F. Keep plants away from drafts near windows and doors, and heat near fireplaces and radiators.
