As with other indoor plants, Kentia palm care requires the right watering and lighting levels for a long life. Fortunately, because the Kentia palm is so forgiving, it will tolerate low-light and low-humidity conditions, as well as dust, heat, and general neglect. Plant your Kentia in fast draining potting mix, preferably on the sandy side. Find an area in your home that receives indirect light through a window; it does not necessarily need to be an extremely bright spot. Water Kentias only when the top inch of soil starts to dry out. Over watering can lead to root rot if the soil mix does not drain fast enough.
Ficus trees can maintain their tree-like shape regardless of their size, so this makes them ideal for bonsais or for massive houseplants in large spaces. Their leaves can be either dark green or variegated. In recent years, some imaginative nurseries have started to take advantage of their pliable trunks to braid or twist the plants into different forms.
Plant the ficus in a well-draining potting mix. Purchase a loamy soil with added vermiculite or perlite for drainage, or mix your own. Use 3 parts loam 1 part peat and 1 part sand for a well-draining mixture. Plant in a deep pot with drainage holes so the water can run out. Place the ficus near a window in a room that gets bright light in the summer with more moderate light in the winter. Turn the plant occasionally so all the growth does not occur on one side.
Water weekly during the summer with room-temperature water. Add water until it drains from the bottom of the pot. Discard the excess water if it flows into a container. Adjust the watering for your particular plant. Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings. If the leaves turn yellow and begin to drop, you may need to increase or decrease the amount of water. Check the root ball. If the roots are soggy water the plant less often. If they are dry, increase watering. Humidity and light levels affect the amount of water needed.
Beaucarnea grows slowly at the best of times and although the plant will do OK in a slightly shady spot, it does need bright light for success. If you can provide some sun you will see the plant converting this into lush new visible leaves, i.e. more light equals more growth.
At the base of the Ponytail Palm is a very thick swollen stem that has a woody appearance. This is actually a water storage organ, which is capable of supporting the plant in times of drought.
You should aim to water at least a few times a month (once a week in the height of Summer if possible) and when you do so, make sure it’s a thorough watering. The water reserves will support the plant if you forget to water it from time to time
When it comes to temperature requirements unlike most house plants the Ponytail Palm is close to being hardy and will accept almost sub zero temperatures. Exposing your plant to such a low temperature however would surely be by accident and not a regular occurrence right? *wink*. Aim for no lower than 7°C / 45°F and although higher temperatures will be accepted, try to achieve 21°C / 70°F to provide good growing conditions.

The Tillandsia Bulbosa is also one of the easiest air plants to care for. It does not require any soakings, only mistings 2-3 times a week, more often in hot and dry conditions like that of in the desert. In the summer months, when it is a bit warmer, the Bulbosa can grow quite rapidly.
It also does extremely well in low light conditions as well as that of bright diffused or indirect light
The Tillandsia Bulbosa is native to Guatemala, Belize and Central America.

- A moderately bright windowsill or similar spot to growin.
- Watering when it begins to dry out, usually every 7 to 10 days.

- Repotting when the bloom is finished with fresh orchid mix.
he common name burrito sedum refers to Sedum morganianum “Burrito,” a cultivar of sedum also known as burro’s tail and grown for its long, trailing stems and plump, densely packed foliage. It cannot tolerate frost and only survives outdoors above U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zone 10b, so it is best grown as a houseplant in cooler areas. Despite their frost tenderness, burrito sedums are relatively hardy and thrive with little hands-on care. However, they must be regularly watered during the active growing season and provided with suitable levels of light and warmth to prosper.
