5 Signs Your Plants Are Not Well (Time to Take Action Now!)

Too long shoots, brown dry leaves, or sunburn – we tell you how to help the plant if you notice these signs.

1. The plant has grown too long

A plant trunk that is too long and thin, or long and too elongated shoots may indicate that the flower does not have enough sunlight. This can be noticed even in the early stages.

The solution to the problem is to move 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, apply fertilizers throughout the growing season from spring to autumn; in winter it is worth reducing the amount or taking a break.

2. There are no flowers on flowering plants

If you have a plant that is at maturity, but flowers do not appear on it, then you should reconsider the conditions of its maintenance. One of the reasons is the oversaturation of the soil with fertilizers, especially the high nitrogen content. 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, incorrectly selected acidity of the soil mixture, or violation of the dormant period, if the plant needs it to bloom.

3. The plant has 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 unwell 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 home is hot and water evaporates faster (in summer and during heating periods), it is better to water the plant more often. However, you shouldn’t fill it either.

We recommend that you study the information about the type of plant in more detail. If it is heat-loving, it may not be watered enough and will need to be sprayed regularly.

4. The leaves have changed color

Changing leaf color signals that your plant is uncomfortable with the conditions in which it finds itself. The reason can be determined by the shade.

  • Yellow leaves indicate that you are regularly watering the plant. This is dangerous, as excessive moisture can cause the roots to rot. 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 you should not use it to determine the condition of the soil. It is advisable that the pots have drainage, which will draw out excess water and prevent the plant from deteriorating.
  • A large number of brown, dry leaves on a plant indicates that it needs more moisture. The problem is easy to solve: water the flower more often, and spray it with water regularly. A humidifier will also help to humidify the air; you can make it yourself.

5. Leaves become dry and crispy at the edges

Brown-yellow leaves that are dry and crispy at the edges signal another problem – sunburn.

Causes of the problem

  • The plant stands on a windowsill in direct sunlight. This is especially dangerous in the 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 haven’t watered the plant for a long time, and besides, the air in the room is too dry.

You can solve the problem of burns as follows: 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 moving the pot to the windowsill.
