    You should put your plants in the least drafty area of your house, but depending on what type of houseplants you have, you may want to invest in some houseplants that will thrive in your environment and temperature. There are also many other factors that go into keeping a houseplant healthy. It could be that the temperature isn't what is killing your plants at all.

    Make sure you are checking the moisture level more frequently in your plants, especially when it is warmer in the house. If it is cooler, keep the plants away from open windows or vents your air conditioned air comes out of, same for when heater is on. This can alter greatly the moisture needs of the plants and also can damage the leaves. You don't want to over or under water the plants, so check the plants frequently by putting your finger into the soil at least an inch or get a meter made for checking the water level with a probe.

  • My house temps range from the low 60's to 100. I constantly move some of them around and some live in their spot. All depends on lighting and watering. Once I find a spot where a plant likes, I just leave it there. You will get the hang of it. Just check at least once a week, or more often if you have time.
