Perfect way to make withered feet green
Author : Lohit Baisla
These days the trend of gardening is increasing. Looking at the growing trend, many of us plant plants in our homes. Sometimes we bring healthy plants from nursery but after a few days the plants start wilting. There are many reasons for this. Like humans and animals, plants also need care. If not given proper care, the plants begin to wither and after some time completely dry up. If your garden plants have also started wilting, then read this post carefully to know its causes and preventive measures. Let us get to know in detail about this topic.
Causes of wilting of plants and preventive measures
First of all check whether the plants are completely dry or not. We should not consider the plants to be dry because of the drying of some leaves. Plants can be saved if some leaves are green or the branches and stems are not completely dry.
Diseases and Pests: Due to the outbreak of pests and diseases, the plants also start drying up. To protect the plants from various pests and diseases, it is necessary to control them. To prevent the spread of pests and diseases, cut and isolate the affected parts of the plants. Along with this, spray insecticide and fungicide as required.
Pruning of plants: Separate completely dry leaves and branches along with other dry parts from the plants. However, at the time of harvesting dry parts of the plant, cut the stem to a height of at least 5 cm from the ground surface. After some time new branches and leaves will start coming out from these twigs.
Irrigation at the right time: Many times due to lack of water, the plants appear withered. Examine the soil. If the top layer of the soil appears dry, then there is a lack of moisture in the soil. So irrigate the plants at a fixed interval or as per the requirement.
Lack of water: Sometimes the leaves start drying from the edge and turn brown. Sometimes the leaves also start to burst slightly from the edge. These can be symptoms of lack of water in plants. If these symptoms are seen in the plants, irrigate well. If the plants are in pots, then water the pots till the water comes out from the holes made at the bottom of the pots.
Adequate Sunlight: Sunlight is very important for healthy plants. Do not ignore sunlight when caring for plants. Plants planted indoors should also be kept in the sun for some time. Do not place ornamental plants in too much sunlight. Plants appear wilted even due to strong sunlight.
Supply of nutrients: Due to lack of nutrients at the right time and in the right quantity, the plants become weak and wither. In such a situation, it is necessary to supply nutrients to the plants. For good growth of plants, supplement with dung manure, compost manure, vermicompost, nitrogen, phosphorus, potas, zinc, sulphur, iron, etc.
Re-transplantation of plants: Sometimes the roots of plants spread more in small pots. Due to lack of space, plants are unable to take in proper amount of water and other nutrients. As a result plants wither or stunt their growth. In such a situation, plant the plants in big pots or beds.
Soil Change: It is necessary to change the soil of the pots every few months. Without weeding for a long time, the soil becomes hard and the ability of the soil to absorb water and other nutrients decreases. Due to which the plants are also unable to absorb the nutrients in the proper amount. In such a situation, change the soil of the pots at intervals of some time. Do weeding in the beds.
