June: Taking Indoor Plants Outside

Indoor plants can be put outside for the summer but remember that the outdoor conditions differ greatly from indoors.  The light is much stronger; there is more wind; outdoor temperatures are more varied.  Acclimatize them gradually for a few days and find a location that gives them some protection from the sun and wind.  They will need to be watered more frequently and will need to be fed.  Some plants such as the ficus benjamina do not like to be moved.
