It has been scientifically proven that the presence of green plants inside a house can help reducing carbon dioxide levels, increasing humidity, reducing levels of certain pollutants, keeping air temperatures, and so forth. Hence, it is the homeowner's responsibility to properly care for them in return.

In this post, we've covered a few common problems and how to deal with them:

1. Bugs

Similar to communicable diseases, bugs can infest any plant that they come in contact with. The first step is to separate the infested plant to isolation and spray any type of bio-friendly insecticide. In case of leaves that are rotten, simply cut them off and let the plant regrow itself. In case of some bugs, you can simply wipe them off and get rid of them entirely.

 

2. Yellow Leaves

If you have been overwatering your plants, they tend to have yellow leaves at the bottom of their stems. Or it could also mean you need to fix the drainage. In case of yellow leaves in the upper portion, its cause is nutrient deficiency which can be a common problem from harmful pesticides. Try avoiding excessive use of pesticides or switch to a less potent one.

 

3. Slow Growth

In a majority of such cases, there is only one verdict: not enough sunlight. Sunlight is crucial for a plant's growth as it is the primary source for plants to derive their energy. Deficiency of light results in slow growth or floppy stems. The best thing about this solution is that simply positioning your plant in a different part of the room is 100% free.
