10 tips to maintain your money plant in the summer

Water Wisely:  Money plants don't like soggy soil, so be sure to let the top inch of soil dry out completely before watering again.  In the summer, this may mean watering your plant once every 7-10 days.

Bright Indirect Light: Money plants prefer bright indirect sunlight. Avoid placing your plant in direct sunlight, especially during the hottest part of the day.  Too much direct sun can scorch the leaves.

Increase Humidity: Money plants thrive in humid environments.  If the air is dry in your home, you can increase the humidity around your plant by misting it regularly with a spray bottle filled with water.

Fertilize Sparingly: Money plants are not heavy feeders.  During the summer months, you can fertilize your plant once a month with a diluted liquid fertilizer.  Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer label carefully.

Prune Regularly: Pruning your money plant will help it to grow fuller and bushier.  You can prune off any leggy stems or yellowing leaves.  Pruning will also encourage new growth.

Repot When Needed: If your money plant becomes rootbound, it will need to be repotted into a larger pot.  Signs that your plant is rootbound include slow growth, leaves turning yellow, and roots growing out of the drainage holes of the pot.

Check for Pests and Diseases: Money plants are relatively pest- and disease-resistant.  However, they can be susceptible to mealybugs, scale, and aphids.  If you see any pests on your plant, you can treat them with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Give it a Shower:  Money plant leaves can get dusty over time.  You can give your plant a shower to remove dust and dirt.  Just be sure to hold the pot at an angle so that the water doesn't drain out of the drainage holes too quickly.

Rotate Your Plant: Money plants will naturally grow towards the light.  To encourage even growth, be sure to rotate your plant regularly.

Enjoy the Greenery: Money plants are easy to care for and make a beautiful addition to any home.  With a little care, your money plant will thrive for many years to come.
