Tropical Plants


As the name suggests, tropical plants prefer a warm climate. But they can also be grown indoors in ideal conditions. In their native habitat, the happiest tropical plants are found enjoying filtered sun beneath palm or similar trees.


If you don’t have the proper native climate or can’t provide the ideal environment – bright light, some direct sun, moderate to high humidity, and nighttime temperatures of no more than 65°F – your tropical plants will not flower. They will not be happy. And you will not be happy, either.
