That’s why FloraQueen wants to lend a hand and enlighten you with a few plant care tips or, in other words, some mistakes you should do your best to avoid:

–         Don’t change the plant’s location very often, unless you need to move it temporarily for cleaning purposes. Above all, you have to put the plant’s health first; aesthetics come second.

–         Don’t create a habitat for the plant that is devoid of natural light. Light is crucial for its growth, though it should not have direct exposure.

–         Don’t subject the plant to temperatures below 15oC, since almost all plants need moderate temperatures.

–         Don’t forget to water the plant, especially if the soil is dry to the touch and the leaves start to turn yellow.
