Choosing a Houseplant

Houseplants are a great way to decorate your home and give it some life. Most houseplants also help clean the air of toxins, making your home healthier.

Determining Your Light

  • The only thing you need to know when you come to Pike Nurseries to select your houseplant is what type of light the plant will receive.
  • There’s an easy way to determine your lighting condition:
    • Take a piece of white paper and hold your hand about 8 inches above the paper
    • High Light: If you can clearly see the shadow from your hand and it has some definition
    • Medium Light: There is a blurred shadow
    • Low Light: No shadow
