Indoor Plant Autumn Styling

19 Mar, 2024

As the daylight hours get shorter and we ease into autumn, it’s time to make a few tweaks to your indoor plant care routine. The change in season is the ideal opportunity to consider adding some new houseplants to your collection, and try out some new styling techniques.


With the cooler autumn temperatures, our houseplants don’t need as much attention as they do in spring and summer. Some indoor plants like peace lilies, monstera and ficus, can handle being without water for a little while, just be sure to water them once the soil has dried out. Houseplants such as ferns, fittonias, and carnivorous plants prefer to stay moist, so maintain a regular watering routine to keep them growing well.


Light levels are lower during the autumn months, so some of your indoor plants may need to find a new home for the cooler seasons. Relocating your houseplants can present a fun opportunity to incorporate some fresh styling in your indoor space. Be sure to keep your plants warm by closing the windows at night, and keep an eye on any plants that are reaching for the light, rotating them by a quarter each week for balanced growth.


Your houseplants will grow a little slower while the weather is colder, and many will go into a dormancy period. During this time, your indoor plants won’t need much feeding, so give them a break from fertilising until the spring growing season.
