Every one of our plants comes with care instructions for specific amount of water and frequency.
We know you’ve carefully curated your plant collection and we want to make sure your plants stay as beautiful all year long!
At Tierra Sol Studio we use research to replicate the natural environment of each plant! As soon as it is cold out, we suggest reducing water to your plants!

The two main reasons why water can damage indoor plants when it is cold outside. Plants receive less sun in Winter and slow their growth during this period requiring less water. This reduction in sunlight also results in slower evaporation of water. So regular watering of plants may result in overwatering especially when that water sits in the soil longer than usual.

For houseplants, we suggest reducing water by half or more. Watch for signs of overwatering (like yellow leaves). Also be sure to watch your plants closely for signs of thirst. For instance, some plants will become limp if they need water. If you think that your plant needs more water, be careful not to overcompensate and give it too much.
C A C T I + S U C C U L E N T S
For cacti and other succulents, we recommend holding off on water until it gets warmer. If this seems like too difficult a task for you as a loving plant parent, try to water with a quarter of the water you would normally use.

The environments in homes can vary greatly depending on location, season, the position of plants near heat sources, cold drafty windows, sunny spots, etc. We suggest getting to know your plant and finding what works best for them in your space! Remember that a lost leaf or two is normal!
