One mistake which people make is overwater indoor plants. You must put water slowly. It is important to have an opening for excess water to drain out. Roots of plants will rot due to overwatering. Ensure that the water logging is not happening for long. The water can easily drain from the plant’s container. Water should stay collected at the plant’s roots. Waterlogging can cause small insects and mosquitoes, which can affect the health of people residing at home.
Sunlight is very important. But the mistake we people make is shifting the plant from the darker region to sunny lit areas in sudden change. You must allow plants to get adequate sunlight. Any sudden change, such as moving in direct or indirect sunlight and even change in temperature, suddenly has a negative impact on the plant’s growth. The plants are sensitive.
Music, too, can affect the growth of plants. Loud music tends to disrupt their growth, but soft music tends to boost the plant’s growth.
