A 3-Step Guide to Not Killing Your Plants

A 3-Step Guide to Not Killing Your Plants

Plants can be a wonderful addition to any home. They can enhance your curb appeal, add visual dynamism to any dreary-looking corner, and have plenty of health-boosting properties.

But many people get disappointed when they bring a plant home from the garden center and start noticing little yellow spots, brown edges, or falling leaves.

Even though it’s super exciting to bring a new plant home, looking after one requires a little more research and effort than one might think.

If you’ve decided to invest in a plant or a tree for your home, read ahead to learn how you can help your plant live a long and healthy life

1. Research, Research, and Research

We cannot emphasize the importance of research enough.

Every plant or tree variety has a specific set of needs and requirements. Some might thrive in full sun exposure; some like to be away from a full day of sun. Some require frequent watering while some would be happy with no water for days.

Whenever you bring a plant home, make sure to read comprehensive guides about the specific plant variety to learn all you can about it.

2. Establishing a Regular Watering Schedule

Most plants and trees need a regular watering schedule to thrive. Plants usually die from over-watering or under-watering.

It’s important to first let a plant dry out completely before you water it again. Try to establish a regular watering schedule and stick to it. Also, make sure your indoor plants have good drainage.

Without drainage, your plant will end up sitting in water for days and the roots will start to rot. Make sure whatever decorative pot you’re using has drainage holes at the bottom.

1. Invest in Quality Neem Oil

It’s important to protect your trees and plants from any threatening pests that could damage them from the leaves to the root system.

Neem oil is one of the most effective ways to get rid of any pests that could harm your plants. Whether you’re planting tree saplings in your yard or growing houseplants indoors, make sure to spray it with neem oil once in a while to keep any pests away. Pests can damage the leaves, crowns, stems, and shoots, affecting your tree's overall health and appearance. It's important to get rid of pests to ensure that your trees thrive in the blooming season.
