Have you caught plant fever too and is your balcony or terrace gleaming in lush green? But what happens when your beloved plants suddenly wither and die? In this blog post we want to focus on the top 10 reasons why plants die.
1. Missing or insufficient watering: Plants can dry out quickly, especially on balconies and terraces.
2. Overhydration: The opposite can also be harmful. Too much water will cause root rot and wilt your plants. Automatic watering helps to find the perfect balance.
3. Unsuitable potting soil: Make sure you always choose the right substrate for your plants.
4. Lack of nutrients: Plants need enough nutrients to grow.
5. Wrong light conditions: Some plants love sun, others prefer shade. Consider the individual needs of your plants and choose the location on the balcony or terrace accordingly.
6. Inappropriate temperature: Whether you have a tropical plant or a native plant, each plant has a preferred comfort temperature.
7. Pests or diseases: Sometimes small pests or fungi are the reason why plants die. Take a close look at your plant to identify and treat such problems early.
8. Stress from environmental factors: Noise, smoke or drafts can stress plants. Make sure to create as quiet an environment as possible.
9. Improper care: Wrong pruning or improper overwintering - incorrect care can damage the plant. Become well acquainted with the needs of your plant.
10. Insufficient rest periods: Plants need rest periods just like we humans do. Especially with evergreen plants you have to pay attention to sufficient resting time.
As you can see, there are numerous factors that can promote plant death.
