Tip #2: Maintain a watering schedule
Like us, plants need water to survive. (Yes, this also applies to cacti and succulents!) If too little sunlight isn’t the cause of sick or sad-looking foliage, your watering habits are another likely culprit.
Most houseplants should be watered only when the soil is dry to the touch. For some, this could be every day. For others, it could be only once or twice per month.
You see, despite what you might have heard, overwatering can be more harmful than underwatering. Watering too often can lead to root rot, wilting, and discoloration. Overwatering can also wash away oxygen molecules and key nutrients in your plants’ soil, leading to malnutrition.
