Plant care tips for your plant. We list 4 general reasons why your plant is not growing well and explain how to revive it. You might be able to save your plants if you follow these tips.
Succulents, cactus and some other plants acclimated to dry regions usually need less water. For that reason, they need to dry out completely between watering. Water just a small amount once or twice a week, depending on the temperature. If you water too much, the plant will have excess water on the root and will result in rotting.
It looks like containing water in the leaves.
The plant starts changing to dark or black colour.
The picture shows that the cactus collapsed to the side because it became soft with too much watering. If the problem is partial, cut the bad part off and plant the good part in the soil as the picture shown.
You can apply this method for plants like sansevieria (Mother-in-law’s tongue) and cactus.
If you don’t water your plants enough, they will have a very drying effect.
Dried leaves and the trunk
Dried leaves, it doesn’t contain water in the leaves
What you have to do is water only small amount regularly. It might take a while for the plant to revive, but most plant will come back to life with regular watering. Clean all the dried leaves from the plant, because they still take nutrition. Hydrangea and cyclamen plant requires a lot of water.
If you notice the flowers are soft and collapsing to the side, then they need more water. The easiest way to fix this is, get some water in the bucket.
Soak the plant in the bucket for a minutes or so and take it out.

Most house plants do best in partial shade, which works out well since indoor areas don’t usually get full sun. Keep this in mind before you decide to put a plant in a place where it will get hours of direct sunlight; you may end up exposing it for too long. Happy plant, bamboo, bromeliad, and pixie plant are good examples. If you give them too much direct sunlight, they will get sunburnt. The leaves look yellow and burnt as the picture showed.
The leaves are yellow and burnt, but the trunk is not dried
In this case, trim all the bad leaves and move to a less sunny or shaded area. New leaves will be green and healthy
You can see yellow leaves on the outside and green leave from new growth in the middle. If you move this plant to a shaded area, they will become nice and green after a while.
Some plants like cactus and succulents grow better in a sunny area.
If you want to grow these plants inside the house, choose a bright and sunnier area. It is also a good idea to take the plant outside and give a bit more sunlight regularly. “Do you notice your plant becoming thin and reaching toward the sunlight?” Which means it needs more sunlight.
If you leave your plant inside without much sunlight for a while and give full sun suddenly, they will also get sunburnt. You have to be careful not to give too much sunlight straightaway. Start from a shaded area and increase the amount of sunlight gradually.
