one Transplant the plant into a new pot and fresh soil
Often the plant looks unattractive due to the fact that it has not been transplanted for a long time, and a salt crust has formed on the surface of the soil from watering. Also, the soil can be affected by fungus if it is not properly cared for. Sometimes the fungus is formed due to improperly selected soil, for example, if there was too much peat in it. Therefore, when transplanting, it is important to find out what kind of soil this flower needs and pick it up in a flower shop.
An old unaesthetic pot also spoils the impression of the plant. If it is not very beautiful and lush, a new planter is a great way to divert attention. It is important that the planter is chosen exactly according to the size of the root system. This will help the plant start putting out new branches and leaves. If the old planter fits in all respects except for aesthetics, you can disguise it by placing it in a wicker basket.
Schedule a rejuvenating and shaping pruning in the fall or spring. Old branches that do not have leaves are cut with clean garden shears. In this case, you need to cut the branch not to the end, leaving a fragment. The cut is treated with charcoal or an antiseptic for plants. Move the pot a little further away from the window and do not forget about regular watering. So you can get rid of bare branches and provoke the growth of new buds.
3 Use growth promoters
In stores, you can find sprays and solutions to stimulate the growth and flowering of indoor plants. You need to select them for a specific type of flower.
If you do not want to use store-bought chemicals, try homemade recipes.
- Cut off a large leaf of an adult aloe, grind into gruel. Add a tablespoon of this puree to a glass of water and leave for a week in a cool, dark place. Dilute the infusion in 5 liters of water. The solution can be watered plants for 2-3 weeks.
- If it is possible to collect fresh nettles, chop them and pour warm water over them. Put the jar of infusion in a warm place, covered with a towel. Stir every day for a week. Strain the fermented infusion and dilute with water in a ratio of 1:10. Water the flower with the solution once a week.
four Change lighting or watering
Perhaps unsuitable conditions were created for the flower, so it grew unsympathetic. Try changing the lighting and watering. For example, if the plant was in a dimly lit corner, move it closer to the window. If you notice yellowing leaves, switch to more frequent watering and add spraying from a spray bottle.
A plant that has just arrived in the house can even be gently washed under the shower with water at room temperature. Often after this, indoor flowers look more cheerful. True, this method is not suitable for owners of fleecy or waxy leaves, for example, geraniums or succulents.
5 Plant cute neighbors
A small old plant, such as a cactus or succulent, can be transplanted into a larger pot and surrounded by young plants. They will cover the ugly fragments of the old flower and divert attention from it. Decor, colored sand or small stones can be added to this composition.
Remember that only healthy plants can be combined in this way or even just placed next to each other. If a diseased flower appears in the house, which is a pity to throw away, it must be isolated in a room without plants. There, carry out treatment, wait a few more weeks and, if there are no more symptoms of the disease or parasites, refer them to healthy counterparts.
