News Release

YouTube Videos Show How to Care for Houseplants

Houseplants add life and beauty to a home. New YouTube videos from Rhonda Ferree, Extension Educator in Horticulture with University of Illinois Extension, provide simple tips on houseplant care.

After watching these short videos, even those with “brown garden thumbs” will know how to have healthy houseplants throughout their home.

Overwatering houseplants is very common. Watering Houseplants teaches you how to know when to water and how much to water your house plants.

Selecting the correct pot and correctly handling the plant and roots are critical aspects of repotting houseplants. Rhonda Ferree demonstrates Repotting Houseplants from her home gardening work center.

Moving Houseplants Indoors shows how to clean and groom houseplants.

Rhonda Ferree’s horticulture YouTube channel extends her gardening education into another realm of social media. Videos are the latest social media trend, with predictions that 74% of all internet traffic in 2017 will be video.

View these videos at http://go.illinois.edu/ILRiverHortvideos. You’ll also find current garden news on Rhonda’s ILRiverHort Facebook and Twitter pages.
