Not everyone is born with a green thumb. We understand. New Yorkers say to us all the time “But I’ll just kill it! Plants hate me.” We promise, they don’t. Being a plant owner takes a little practice just like anything else, but the benefits of greenery are worth it. We don’t want a past negative experience with a plant (OK, so you did kill that adorable philodendron last year – time to talk it out in therapy, and move on) to stop you from trying your hand at being a plant owner. That’s why we offer a 30-Day New Plant Owner Promise.

FAQS - General
Why does my potted houseplant look different than the photos on the site?
Where stated, our products are handcrafted. It is the nature of handmade pottery to have slight variations in color, texture, finish, and size. When you order a handmade container from The Sill, you are choosing a one of a kind piece, thus you can expect there will be subtle differences from what is displayed online. If you feel as we do, this is part of the charm of handmade pottery! And plants are living, breathing things – no two are exactly alike! Finally, while we make every effort to display our potted plant colors as accurately as possible, the colors you see will depend upon your monitor. If ever you are unhappy with the differences in your piece versus what is displayed online, please contact us email@example.com

Do I have to worry about plant pests?
We do our best to ensure that on delivery your plant is happy, healthy and free of pests. However, if your plant becomes a victim of lackluster care, it could attract unfriendly critters. The good news is that plant pests are interested in your plant, not you. They stay relatively local to your plant, so don’t let them deter you from having a houseplant. To keep plant pests away, here are our top 5 preventative measures:
- Soak it. While you shouldn’t regularly overwater your plants, there are exceptions to the rule. Move your plant to a spot that receives medium light. Fill the saucer with water and wait until it has been completely absorbed and then fill the saucer a second time to the brim and let stand. This should keep your plant moist for a 1-week absence.
- Bag it. First clean your plants well, removing anything that might fall off the plant and rot during your absence. Water the plant thoroughly and then cover with a clear plastic bag. Move your plant to a spot that receives medium light. This should work for up to a 16-week absence!
Is it safe to keep plants near pets & children?
Some houseplants contain a chemical defense system that can cause burning or swelling of the mouth and throat when eaten by pets or people. Others contain sap that can cause itching or irritation of the skin. It is best practice to keep all plants out of reach of your pets and small children. Each individual product page will call out any important cautions.
