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:

Problem Solution
  • 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:

  • Underwatering
  • Overwatering
  • 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...

Brown leaf tips


Chemical burns from over applying pesticides.

To remedy this, try DIY pesticides! Your air purifying plants will thank you!


Simply put, your plants don't need to die overnight. All it takes are just small simple changes to ensure that your air purifying plant is here to stay!

First Plant

This is the first pant I got and I am very satisfied! The plant is as beautiful as it is on the pictures. The colors of the leaves are fantastic and the plant is very easy to take care of. I followed the care tips on their blog and I contacted them on Instagram, and I have to say that the customer service is on point. They were very helpful and answered all my concerns quickly. Thank you so much Essencia Air, I love it!
