Top 10 Care Tips for Beginners:
- Don't overwater your plants. It's one of the most common mistakes beginners make.
- Pay attention to sunlight requirements. Some plants need lots of light, whilst others do fine in shade.
- Dust your plants. Dust can block sunlight and reduce the plant's ability to photosynthesise.
- Rotate your plants occasionally to ensure they grow evenly.
- Use a well-draining potting mix to prevent water-logging.
- Regularly check your plants for signs of pests or disease.
- Prune your plants to keep them healthy and to promote growth.
- Avoid placing your plants near air vents, heaters, or drafts.
- Pay attention to your plant's signals. Yellow leaves can mean too much water, whilst brown tips can mean not enough humidity.
- Finally, be patient. Plants grow slowly, so don't worry if you don't see immediate results.
