Houseplants are more than just décor; keeping them in your home will positively impact your life in a number of ways. They’re well known to have many benefits, from improving air quality to improving your health.
Watching your houseplants suffer can be extremely frustrating, especially after spending so much time and money taking care of them. However, many of the issues facing your plants are super manageable! We decided to make an outline of common houseplant problems and how to fix them so that you and your plants can continue to thrive.
Many people assume when their plants wilt or shrivel up that the problem comes from an issue with light, pests, or the amount of water they are receiving. While these causes may be the case in some situations, many times the issues are actually caused by nutrient deficiencies.
Today, the world is suffering from unprecedented levels of water pollution. Run off from farms and other waste is wreaking havoc on our lakes, rivers, oceans, and ponds to the point of creating completely dead zones, and every we summer we see it get worse. This is our motivation at NRU; through nutrient upcycling and sustainable nutrient management, we promote the long-term benefit of communities and the environment.
The transition from summer to fall brings a lot of new beginnings: a new school year, the start of sweater season, the leaves start changing. But it also means your outdoor plants will start struggling to keep up with the temperature drops.
