This is the time of the year we are more likely to attempt at changing things in our life.
Here are a few easy adjustments that will help you keep your indoor plants nice and healthy.
1- Pick a day of the week and make it the day you care for your plants. Regularity is a very important factor in maintaining house plants.
2- When watering your plants, keep in mind that most plants are killed by overwatering them. It is also much easier and faster to correct an under watering problem than an over watering one.
3- Always keep your plants dust free. Not only will they look better, they will stay healthier and bug free.
4- Think about rotating your plants on a monthly basis. Interior plants always grow towards the light. By rotating them you will keep them from being one sided and they will stay stronger as well.
5- On your maintenance day, make sure you pick up yellow or dead leaves, trim bad tips and brown leaves. The plant will look better but also you will better be able to control potential problems. If yellow leaves appear between 2 maintenance days, you know that it probably has to do with what you did or didn't do last time you checked your plant.
6- Apply a leaf shine on a monthly basis. It will make your plant look better and healthier but also it will keep the dust and sometimes the bugs away.
7- If you decide asking your assistant to care for your office plants, make sure he/she applies the few basic advice we just gave you!
8- If you don't have the time or the desire to keep up with your plants, hire a professional interior landscaper
