PLANT CARE: WATER WISELY
Improper watering is the most common reason why indoor plants wilt and die. So be sure to carefully follow the watering instructions provided for each specific plant.
Surprisingly, overwatering (rather than under-watering) is most often the culprit of poor plant health. What makes things complicated is that some signs of overwatering wilting, yellowing, curling leaves look exactly like the symptoms of under-watering. Once again, be sure to consult the care instructions for your specific plant.
Pick a regular day of the week to check the soil moisture of your house plants and make it part of your routine.
Designate one household member to be responsible for watering the house plants. When multiple family members add water, it can easily lead to overwatering.
Tap water contains many chemical additives designed to keep humans healthy, but not necessarily plants. Serious indoor gardeners often use distilled water to help their house plants flourish to the fullest.
