Tips For Keeping Your Houseplants Alive

Owning an indoor plant is tough than it seems. Particular if you want to keep them alive. However, if you are not a gardening expert, then caring for a plant can be harder than it seems. Here are three quick tips for keeping your apartment plants alive.

 

 

Right amount of lighting: giving your plants the proper amount of light is huge. Different plants require different lighting situations. Some require lots of light, while others prefer dimly lit rooms. Figure out what type of lighting your living space has and then purchase the correct plant accordingly.

Clean your plants: just like anything else in your home, plants get dusty and need to be cleaned. Dust particles can block sunlight and cause your plants to wither.

Add humidity:  if the tips of your plant leaves are brown, your home is probably too dry. Try to add a bit of humidity by grouping plants together.
