RUBBER TREE

Light These guys like bright, indirect sunlight – like next to a window that has sheer curtains.

Water: Allow the soil surface to dry slightly in-between waterings. if you notice droopy leaves, it’s time to water. Watering once as week should do the trick. Also wiping the leaves with a damp cloth once a month or so to get rid of the dust and make them shine.

AIR PLANTS

Light: Bright filtered light is the general rule, and the higher the humidity of the air the higher light will be tolerated.

Water: I submerge mine in a cup of water for about 15 minutes every 3 weeks or so. I keep mine in glass terrariums so I make sure they completely air dry before I put them back. 

*Confession time, this is the only plant I have ever killed! Ha! How that is possible I don't know!

FIDDLE LEAF FIG

Light:  Like the Rubber Trees, these guys love bright, indirect light. a west or south-facing window is best. And the key is to not move them around a lot, find a spot and make that home. 

Water: Allow the soil surface to dry in-between waterings. overwatering is actually the biggest killer of the fiddle leaf fig. I water once as week and mist with a spray bottle once a week.

SNAKE PLANT

Light: The Snake plant also known as Mother In - Law's tongue will thrive in a sunny window facing east, west or south. If you have only a north facing window, don’t despair! Snake plant handles a variety of light situations very well.

Water: Water sparingly. A succulent holds lots of water inside its leaves, and if you give it too much water, the plant will rot.

AGAVE

Light & Water: These ones thrive in dirt and water, however,  I've only had mine in water but besides replacing the water every month or two that's all the care it needs! So easy!

Cactus

Light: Give your Cactus (mine is an African milk tree) all the bright light possible. While this plant requires at least one-half day of direct sun each day, it will tolerate several hours of partial sun if necessary.

Water: Water your cactus thoroughly when the soil surface feels dry to the touch throughout the growing season. Evenly moisten the surface of the soil, but don’t water so much that it’s soggy or wet.
