Plant Tips and Tricks

Yellowing Leaves

Yellowing and dropping leaves are often a result of poor light, low temperatures, pollution or even pests. If you spot yellowing leaves on your plant look for other signs of these problems.

Know the Temperature and Ventilation

When you have your plants in an office setting it is crucial to be aware of the temperature of the room in which the plant is located.  The ideal temperature for an indoor plant is between 60 and 75 degrees F. It is key to keep your plant away from hot or cold drafts, and warm appliances. It is important to have good ventilation for your plant too. If your room’s ventilation is lacking, a small fan set on low is all your plant needs.

Check plants for common insects

The most common insects that attack plants indoors are mealy bugs, scale, and mites. Inspect the your plant's leaves regularly for these pests.

Change your potting soil annually

Once a year change the soil in all your office plants to renew the nutrients in the soil. If the roots are in a tight tangle, it's a sign that you need to upgrade to a bigger pot.
