One of the most important factor in influencing the growth of plants is the quality and duration of light exposure for plants to grow and remain healthy. Natural light (Sunlight) is undoubtedly the best source of light. However, growing plants indoors have to also consider the problems whereby during certain periods of the year, where the sun is not out as much, providing artificial light is necessary. Furthermore, the requirement of light for the optimal growth of plants varies as some may require less light, while another, more.

For people growing of plants indoors (and outdoors) must ensure the light intensity is ideal for the growth of your plant. Otherwise, your plant might just end up being a stain in your ideal green space.

2) Temperature

Plants blossom and wither in different seasons which is a living proof that temperature is a crucial element that influences the growth of plants. Not just for the surroundings, the temperature of the soil also matters as well for plant growth. Many natural processes such as photosynthesis, respiration, flowering, and germination are also dependent on the optimum temperature. Because it is so extremely hard to control temperature, many people have adopted the technique of hydroponics because it might be easier to cultivate plants than using soil. So, you might just want to look into using hydroponics to cultivate your green space; it is easier than you think!


3) Nutrients

Less might be more; you don't have to give so many fertilizers or nutrients to your plants than you think! Overdosage of fertilizers will just cause salt to form in the water. These salts "burn" the plants' roots and this is why your plant wilt, just because you care too much. Think about it, before humans even came about, flora were flourishing on their own. This is why you should just let the plants grow naturally in its own eco-system without too much additional attention to it.

4) Soil/Medium

The growing medium (usually soil) is very important and the basis for good plant growth. It stores the water and minerals for the plants and is the anchorage for which the plants set its roots in. However, with all the challenges and difficulty in cultivating and maintaining the ideal medium for plants, this might be one of the most fundamental reasons why your plants are wilting despite you showering it with love and care. The greens might be your point of attention but don't forget the earth for which the greens sit upon!


Are you guilty of not ensuring either of the important factors? Well, now you know the issues causing your plants to wilt! Explore new options and change your planting habits! Who knows in the near future, you might have to get rid of plants at home for overgrowing just because you do your job damn well in cultivating them!
