A few set of guidelines and rules are all you need to have a healthy house plant in your living space. Provide your houseplants with the below five ingredients, and your indoor garden is sure to thrive.
1 Just the right amount of water
The main cause of houseplant death is incorrect watering. Either people neglect their houseplants and fail to water, or over pour out of good intention but would end up with not so good result.
Water your houseplants only when they need water. This usually means when the top one to two inches of soil has dried. Insert your finger up past your first knuckle, or use a moisture meter or the “pick up” test before watering. (Lightweight houseplants tend to be dry) Overwatering is the fastest route to fungal disease and imminent death.
