OVERWATERING HOUSE PLANTS
We’re willing to bet that the biggest mistake you’re making is overwatering. That’s right, you’re drowning your botanical babies with too much TLC! The main symptom of overwatering is wilting, along with yellowing, browning and slow growth. Many people spot wilting and – not unreasonably – assume that their house plant needs further watering, which is the worst thing they could do. Chances are, its roots have already started rotting, but there’s a sliver of hope. Unfortunately, for all their lauded qualities, house plants can be divas. If your leafy lodger has shrivelled and died on you after a matter of weeks, you’re not alone. You simply need to know where you’re going wrong – and learn how to turn that black thumb bright green in a jiffy! So, how do you stop killing your house plants?
