Taking care of your plants – Horty Girl’s Easy Guide to Maintaining and Watering your Plants

Horty Girl plants are selected and designed to be low maintenance. Some plants, such as Tropical Palms, could use attention every 1 – 2 weeks. Others, such as Succulent varieties, can be left for 1 to 2 months without any attention in your home or office.

This guide uses the Horty Girl Smart Stick to indicate if it’s time to water.  This smart stick comes with every Horty Girl plant.
