How To Trim Indoor Plants

In this video I will show you how to groom your plants to keep them attractive and healthy.

 

Plant leaves can become spotted and blemished for different reasons, including heat, dryness, lack of nutrients, over watering, and under watering.

All yellow and brown leaves need to be removed completely. If more than half of a leave is affected it needs to be cut back as close as possible to plan’t stem without damaging it. You need a very sharp knife or cutters to do it.

If only small portion of a leaf is discolored, you can use very sharp scissors and just trim the discolored edges by following the natural shape of a leaf.

Plant Light Chart
Light Intensity Description
High Light South or southwest-facing windows. Direct sunlight.
Medium Light East or West facing windows. Partial, filtered or indirect sunlight.
Low Light North-facing windows. No more then 20 feet from the window. Bright fluorescent light at least 8-10 hours a day.

Note: if you can’t read a book as it is too dark in a certain areas than it is too dark for any plant as well.

Window direction is not the only factor to understand your light situation. What is outside the window makes a big difference. Another building, large tree, etc. will block direct light and will effect lighting environment.
