    With the addition of the dry furnace heat, you may want to check the moisture in the pots more frequently as they may dry out quicker. A moisture meter would help with that since different plants like to be dry before watering and some like to have moist soil on the roots most of the time. Fertilize, but check to see if some of them need less during the winter months. If they don't get as much sun as they do in the warmer months, consider a grow light, or if it doesn't like the strong light a daylight bulb would work well. Good luck with your houseplants!

    Keep them near a window where they can catch winter sunlight, water when soil is dry and I add a plant fertilizer at lest 4 to 6 weeks. When temps outside are at lest 49 degrees I take them out to catch more sun and give them a good soaking with the water hose.

    *** Before being plants inside I replant in fresh plant soil and add a 1/2 to 1“ layer of sand which eliminates pesty gnats.

    Water less. Mist often
