Exotic Orchids, Neon Pothos & Rex Begonias Brighten Winter Days

Don’t despair if your green thumb turns a nasty shade of black when it comes
to caring for indoor plants. You will be gratified to know that it’s often not

inhospitable winter conditions within a Canadian house that cause your plants to
shrivel and die.

Then again, it could be your fault because the natural tendency is to overwater
and drown unhappy plants. Like people, plants’ roots that are constantly wet or
bone-dry either get mouldy and rot or become dehydrated and shut down.

Which means if you are a cursory gardener then many but, happily, not all indoor
plants are for you.
