STAYING ALIVE: How do I keep my plants from dying?
Caring for air purifying plants doesn’t have to feel like a big commitment and it shouldn’t have to feel like you have the touch of death. Before giving up, consider the following and see if any of these are the reasons why your air purifier plants are not doing so well:
- My plant's leaves look long, skinny, and face downwards.
- My air purifying plant turned yellow.
- The leaves are shriveled up and pale.
- There are weird bumps and swellings on the leaves
| They're grasping for sunlight! Try moving the plant to an area with that has more sunlight or is the brightest in the room.
- My air purifying plant is wilting and looks sad.
- My air purifying plant is not growing!
- My air purifying plant has small leaves.
These problems have a number of solutions but the main issues to address are:
- Too much fertilizer
- Not enough fertilizer
- Damaged root
- Poor soil
Inspect your plant and make sure that each component listed here is checked up. Make sure the root is ok, make sure that you are putting the right kind of soil for your air purifying plant, make sure the fertilizer is fresh and well suited for the soil... etc...
