We all get super excited on becoming plant parents as it's always nice to grab the prettiest plant and bring it home.

Plants are just lovely, they bring good vibes to your surroundings, great as decor and even better as a hobby. If you are taking care of plants and it is not going as planned, then you might be doing something wrong.

Here is a list from Elana's Broad Street florist of some common mistakes that you might be making :-

#Over watering 

The most common mistake that is made by most people. It can be perplexing how much to water, when to water and also when to stop. You can know when your plant needs water by checking the soil. If it is super dry then it is asking for water, not as dry then leave it as is. Another common way to tell if your plant needs water is by spotting drooping leaves. While getting your plant ask for water instructions so that you could get it right as per your plant needs.

#Not checking the roots 

 Roots are of course a major part of overall plant health. Checking roots once in a while is a way to avoid root rotting. To identify if the roots on your houseplant are rotting check for whitening of roots, mushy and moist stem, yellow and wilted leaves. Change the soil with some fertilizer mix and your plant should be good to go. If you are looking to become a plant parent or already are one you can get yours from wilmington delaware florist.
