    Many Hamilton County residents don't know that it's the Hamilton County homeowner’s responsibility to clear the snow and ice on the sidewalks in front of their property. If a person or persons get injured on the sidewalks, the homeowner can be found liable for the injury in court. If you're interested in reading more about this ordinance, please click here.

    Houseplants that Look Like Small Trees

    Indoor Plants that Look Like Small Trees + How to Care for Them (A Guide)

    Indoor Palms

    In case you didn't know, indoor palm trees are one of the most popular (if not the most popular) type of houseplant around the world. They look majestic and add a look of flair to your apartment or home. When you go to buy a palm at a garden center, make sure you choose one that looks (and is!) healthy. Avoid palms with dead leaves, hints of stunted growth, and musty-smelling palms. You'll also want to check underneath the leaves for bugs (including the small "dots" that sometimes scatter across leaves... those are spider mites.) Avoid palms that have damaged leaves, or leaves that have holes in them. Finally, look at the roots. If they are coming out of the bottom of the pot, that's fine. That's simply a sign that it's still growing and will need repotted soon. 

    Ficus

    Another extremely popular choice is the indoor ficus. The ficus is a tropical plant, but can grow indoors. They can survive in low light conditions, but will thrive in full sunlight. Once you move the ficus to its primary location, don't move it again; this can cause the plant to lose its leaves. It should receive 12-13 hours of sunlight every single day. Purchase a plant light for use in the fall and winter. If leaves do show signs of browning, snip the twig off right away. When watering the ficus be sure to water it thoroughly and then wait until it's dry on the top inch of its soil before watering again. Watering a damp plant can lead to over-watering.

    Dracaena

    The dracaena is a beautiful houseplant that can tolerate low lighting and low humidity. Not only that, but if you miss a day of watering, it will forgive you (just don't do it often!) Ideally, place the plant in moderate indirect sunlight and water it when the topsoil is dry. Fertilize the dracaena with a regular liquid houseplant fertilizer, and mix it according to instructions on package Fertilize it every two weeks in spring and summer, and every month in fall & winter.
