6 Ways to Revive a Nearly Dead Houseplant
If your plants have become a casualty of the recent cold weather snap, or are simply showing signs of neglect, here’s a few useful steps for reviving them.
1. Repotting the plant
Moving a tired-looking plant into a fresh pot of soil can make a big difference.
Just pick a container that’s a size upgrade: Be sure to select a pot a couple of inches wider than the one you are replacing. This will give the roots room to grow and thrive.
2. Feed it better
Plants need healthy food too, so replace your old soil with a high-quality potting mix.
You might also want to try fertilizer — just stick with a slow-process variety that won’t feed your plant’s roots too much at once.
3. Arrange a proper sunlight
Even though sun is for the most part good for plants, abruptly moving them into the hot, bright sun when they’re looking worse for wear can cause serious problems.
Keep the plant in indirect sunlight until it recovers well.
4. Water it precisely
Different plants require different water levels in different seasons or conditions.
Get correct information about their water requirements and water precisely.
5. Get rid of bugs and pests
If the leaves or stem of your plant are speckled or weak-looking, bugs might be the problem.
Get rid of such bugs or pests by either gently wiping or spritzing leaves with a mild soapy water solution.
6. Maintain humidity if required.
Some plants may need a more humid environment, which you probably don’t want for your home.
To create an individual greenhouse for your plant, place a small plastic bag on top of it.
