1. Right Plant = Right Place . Position your plant in the appropriate light. Every once in a while move them around & turn them so they can evenly recieve light. Don't over-crowd your plants, make sure they have enough room to grow. Avoid drafts, heaters or placing them too close to a hot sunny window that may burn leaves.
2. Feed them Organics. I used a granular organic food into the soil when I repot or topdress with new soil (see below) and a liquid in my water once or twice a month. No need to overfertilize! If you get bugs or other pests use an organic pest or least toxic solution (neem spray, soap spray, etc.).
3. Houseplants Outside during the Summer. In May or June when it warms up enough, I put all my plants outside on a shady porch. They can capture the nature sun rays even in the shade. This helps them store energy for winter. Repot if needed before you bring plants indoors in late summer or fall.
4. Water Wisely. Water your plants when they need it, do not over water or under water. Plants that are root bound or heavy with foliage may require more more water than smaller plants or cactus or other succulents that like to dry out in between waterings.
