one The plant has grown too long

Too long and thin stem of the plant, long and too elongated shoots may indicate that the flower lacks sunlight. You can notice this even in the early stages.


The solution to the problem is to rearrange the flower closer to the window. When plants lack nutrients, their shoots become thinner and taller as they reach for the light. If moving doesn’t help, the soil may be lacking nitrogen or sulfur. In this case, fertilize throughout the growing season from spring to autumn, in winter it is worth reducing their amount or taking a break.

2 There are no flowers on flowering plants


If you have a plant that is in the stage of maturity, but flowers do not appear on it, then it is worth reviewing the conditions for its maintenance. One of the reasons is the oversaturation of the soil with fertilizers, especially the high nitrogen content is critical. It is worth reducing the amount of nutrients. If everything is in order with fertilizers, flowering can be affected by the lack of good lighting, improperly selected acidity of the soil mixture, or a violation of the dormant period if the plant needs it to bloom.

3 the plant drooped


A sluggish, drooping plant with dry, dying leaves often signals to its owner that it lacks moisture. Regular watering can revive it. To confirm for sure that the plant is not well due to lack of water, stick your finger into the soil 3-6 cm. If the soil inside is dry, the plant needs more moisture. If your house is hot and the water evaporates faster (in summer and during the heating period), it is better to water the plant more often. However, it is also not worth pouring it.

We recommend that you study the information about the type of plant in more detail. If it is heat-loving, it may not be enough watering, and it needs to be sprayed regularly with a spray bottle.

four The leaves have changed color


A change in the color of the leaves signals that your plant is uncomfortable in the conditions in which it is located. The cause can be determined by the shade.

  • Yellow leaves indicate that you regularly flood the plant. This is dangerous, as excessive moisture can rot the roots. To avoid this problem, it is worth defining a clear watering schedule. Check the soil moisture every time: stick a stick or finger into the ground, if the tip remains wet, then watering is not needed. The topmost layer of soil dries out quickly, so it is not necessary to determine the condition of the soil from it. It is desirable that the pots have drainage at the same time, which will draw out an excess of water and prevent the plant from spoiling.
  • A large number of brown dry leaves on the plant indicates that it needs more moisture. Solving the problem is easy: water the flower more often, spray it regularly with water. A humidifier will also help to humidify the air, you can do it yourself.

5 Leaves become dry and crispy around the edges


Leaves that are brown-yellow, dry and crisp around the edges, signal another problem — sunburn.

Causes of the problem

  • The plant stands on a windowsill in direct sunlight. This is especially dangerous in summer.
  • You sprayed it under the sun right on the windowsill: the drops that fell on the leaves played the role of a lens.
  • You have not watered the plant for a long time, and besides, the air in the room is too dry.

To solve the problem of burns, you can do the following: remove the plant from direct sunlight, make sure the soil is moist and water regularly. You can spray the flowers with water, but it is better to do this in a place where there is no direct sunlight, then you need to let the drops dry before rearranging the pot on the windowsill.
