Indoor Plants Problems and How to Solve Them

How to solve indoor plants problems

Do you love adding natural touches to your interior design, but you face some problems caring for your indoor plants?

Most people love houseplants. Plants are beautiful, improve air quality, enhance our well-being and are good for the environment.

Admiring an excellent selection of houseplants from afar is one thing, but it turns out that keeping a variety of houseplants happy and healthy on your own is not so easy.

The key to mastering indoor gardening is paying more attention to how plants grow and respond to different amounts of water and light.

Leaves turning brown

If the edges of the leaves are turning brown, it could be due to too lack of water or dry air.

Try watering a little more frequently and adding a splash of water from time to time.

Leaves that look burnt

If your houseplant is in a location where it receives full afternoon sun (such as a bright window), the sunlight may be too intense.

Place it in a well-lit area, but not in direct midday sun.

Crooked foliage

Some plants grow and stretch toward the brightest light in the room, weighing them down on one side. In this case, rotate the plant regularly to achieve even growth.

Leaves turning yellow

Older leaves that turn yellow and brown with age and fall off the plant after some time are normal.

Put the plant in a place with a little less sun and observe the changes.

Leaves fall off the plant

This may be because of too little or too much water. As a general rule, do not water the plant until the first five inches of soil are dry.

Curled or wilted leaves

Leaves may curl and wilt if the plant is too dry or in a low humidity environment. Try watering a little more often and spraying the plant with a water sprayer.

Some tips to avoid indoor plants problems

  • Keep the foliage of your plants free of dust
  • Place your plant in a pot that is a little larger than necessary. If it’s too big, you run the risk of root rot and other problems.
  • Make sure the pots have adequate drainage.
  • Before you buy a plant, study it and make sure you can provide it with the right light and water conditions for perfect growth. Keep the plant labels for future reference.
  • Do not water over the leaves,but directly into the soil.
  • Do not water unless the first two inches of soil are dry.
  • Be careful with fertilizing, as too strong a fertilizer mixture can burn the plant, causing browning and burning of the leaves. Choose a weak mixture to a strong mixture.
