Gardening tip: Summering your house plants

Like a trip to the beach is for your soul, spending the summer outside for a houseplant is a much needed vacation. When temperatures rise and the lows don't fall below 50, it's a good time to give your houseplants a taste of the good life. Make sure to start your plants out in the shade because they are used to getting indirect sunlight. Once they've been out for a while, check on the sweet babies and if they look like they're doing ok try putting them in partial sun. I have a bunch of succulents and they thrive outside! I usually add a little plant food and let nature take its course. I don't water succulents, I just let them soak up the rain, unless there's a drought and then you want to water them occasionally.
