Aim to keep the plant in a warm environment with sufficient air circulation, and periodically rotate it to ensure consistent growth. During the winter months, keep plants away from the cold draft areas in the house. The warmer it gets for houseplants, the happier they are, so try to remain vigilant when it comes to placement. Airflow is the third element that is key to healthy plant growth. Still air can cause a host of ailments in your houseplant and creates leave-clogging dust. To ensure houseplants remain healthy you should periodically, and gently, dust the plant’s leaves so they can take nice deep breaths. Now that you’ve mastered the basic conditions, the next challenge is to avoid the common mistakes. Just remember, it’s not just newbies who struggle with this, many seasoned plant owners can benefit from a refresh to prevent bad habits.
