Have you forgotten to water the plant or has it just begun to wilt without any apparent cause? Keep in mind that you haven’t lost it yet! There are a few simple tricks you can use to save it. Here’s what you need to do!
🍂 Remove the dead leaves
The first thing you should do is remove all the dead leaves. Before cutting or tearing the leaves, check if there are green shoots at the base of the stalks and avoid cutting them because new leaves will grow from there.
🟤 Change the pot and soil
The next step is changing the pot and the soil. Buy a new pot and wash it thoroughly before adding the soil; this way you will destroy all the potential germs that can harm the plant. Make sure you buy a soil type specific to your plant.
🌱 Check the stems and roots
Before repotting the plant, check carefully the stem and root.
The branches or stems that look wilted or dried should be removed.
Remove the soil from the plant roots and rinse them carefully. Check the roots and remove the dried ones.
Repot the plant and ensure its water needs are met. Give it time to recover, and water it on a regular basis.
💦 Provide the nutrients your plant needs
Just like we do, plants need nutrients for proper growth. Provide the nutrients your plant needs by adding fertilizer to your soil (choose one specific for your plant).
