Are you someone who struggles to look after your pot plants properly? I know I am one of those people who struggles with the upkeep of the ones I have at home, and sometimes, it can get frustrating! Yes, it’s true that there are days I forget to water them or put them in a place where there is ample sunshine, but I do follow through with that routine more often than not.
I have numerous pot plants, and I love being a part of maintaining them to the best of my ability. Although I like the look of dried up roses and other flowers, a dried up pot plant doesn’t cut it for me — I don’t think it cuts it for anyone. Who wants withering roots all around the house?
The only way to stop plants from withering is to water them, and of course, not over-water them! You should always have a routine on when and how you water the plants, but sometimes it’s just not possible to water them every day, and there are reasons for this. You can be on vacation, out late with some friends, or maybe you just forgot.
