1. Assess the Problem

Are they getting too much or too little light? Is the soil too dry? Are there signs of pests or disease? Once you pinpoint the issue, you can tailor your efforts accordingly.

2. Adjust Watering Habits

Overwatering is one of the most common mistakes made by plant enthusiasts. Make sure to water your plants only when the top inch or so of the soil feels dry to the touch.

3. Prune Dead or Yellowing Leaves

Dead or yellowing leaves can drain your plant's energy and prevent new growth. Pruning them helps redirect nutrients to healthier parts of the plant.

4. Repot When Necessary

Repotting allows you to provide your plant with fresh soil and more room to grow. Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current one.

5. Provide Adequate Light

Different plants have varying light requirements. Ensure that your plant is placed in the right spot in your home – some need direct sunlight, while others thrive in low-light.

6. Fertilize Appropriately

Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer to provide your plants with the necessary nourishment. However, avoid over-fertilizing, as this can lead to nutrient imbalances.
