do you have them?

do you take them out and let them get fresh air?

how do you clean the leaves so they aren't so dusty?

we have several and are babysitting my parent's plants while they are at their winter home.

I don't take them out... but wondering if I should.

once a year I mayo them... yes MAYONAISE my plants. I wipe it on and "massage" it in the leaves... they look awesome after I do it, and they seems to love it... I learned that from a lady I used to nanny for! it only smells for the day.

We do not.  I have silk plants in the house for my own sanity.  Between the cats and DD I would have chewed up plants with absolutely no soil in them.  The cats would chew and the daughter would dig.  Silk is much easier and I keep the real plants outside.  I long for the day I can keep real plants in the house but that would require no kids or pets.  So it might not ever happen haha.

I have 3 and they stay out doors for a couple of days,after a fresh watering. Then I bring them inside for a couple of days.

Yes.  I put all but my aloe plant and my Poinsettia out on the back patio in the summer.  The aloe and the Poinsettia plants brown in the sun so I don't like to put them out side.  My windows let in plenty of light for them to grow inside. I just have to remember to re pot them every couple of years.  The other plants stay outside during the summer and I bring them inside when the weather turns colder.  I find spritzing the leaves with water from a spray bottle removes dust, and keeps the leaves shiny.

I have a few. They are lucky to get watered regularly.
