Prayer Plant Calathea: This plant's problem is environmental. Ideally, it wants bright light (but not direct sun), warmth, humidity, and generally steady watering. In winter, cut back on watering a bit, only applying irrigation when the top inch of soil has dried out. Calathea is very temperature sensitive: it suffers when nighttime temperatures fall below 60° and when temperatures fluctuate much. It doesn't tolerate drafts (especially from forced-air heating vents). Expect it to go into a…

Moth Orchid (phalaenopsis): Phalaenopsis is one of the easiest orchids to grow indoors.  To get it to rebloom, make sure it gets enough light (bright east or west window), but not direct sunlight and feed with a slow release or organic fertilizer formulated for orchids.  It does not tolerate temperatures below 60-65 degrees F.  When in bud or bloom, the plant must be kept above 65 degrees or the buds will turn yellow and drop.  Do not overwater and water at the base of the plant rather than…

Western Sword Fern (polystichum munitum): Grows 2 to 4 ft. high and wide, carpeting the understory of vast tracts of forests. It's an excellent garden subject, requiring only partial to full shade and moderate water. Florists frequently use the fronds in flower arrangements. The plant is deciduous, producing new fronds every spring, but old fronds can remain green and upright through mild winter regions.
