It’s houseplant month on Down The Garden Path! Every week in February, we’re going to answer your houseplant questions and dive into some of the most popular, sometimes daunting, houseplants. Last week, we spoke with Terry Kennedy about how to successfully grow orchids. In this week's episode, we take a look at succulents and cacti.

We also do a little Houseplant 101 for your existing plants and review our handy three-point checklist when examing your houseplants: check the soil; check the foliage and check the form.

Tune into this week's podcast to learn more Houseplant 101, as well as information about growing succulents and cacti.

We answer some common questions:

  • How easy are succulents and cacti to grow in your home?
  • What specific conditions do they need to thrive?
  • Are there common issues involved in their maintenance?
  • What are the do's and don'ts of growing cacti and succulents?
  • Are they easy to propagate? 

Our houseplant theme continues for all of February. Join us later this month for more helpful houseplant podcasts on Air Plants and Bonsai.

Each week on Down the Garden Path, professional landscape designers Joanne Shaw and Matthew Dressing discuss down-to-earth tips and advice for your plants, gardens and landscapes. We do our best to bring you interesting, relevant and helpful topics to help you keep your garden as low maintenance as possible.
