Living plants in our homes not only increase the aesthetic appeal of the space, but also create a feeling of warmth and comfort. SSPDaily talked about the reasons for the rapid wilting of indoor flowers and considered potential signs of their death.

Causes of wilting leaves of indoor plants

  • Temperature fluctuations

The optimum temperature for most indoor plants ranges from 18-26°C (64-79°F). Temperature conditions that are too high or too low can cause flowers to wilt.

  • Insufficient or excessive watering

Both insufficient and excessive watering can be harmful to plants. Therefore, before watering, be sure to check the soil moisture level by touch.

  • Uneven watering

Water should be evenly distributed over the soil surface until it starts to drain out of the holes in the pot. This way, the entire root system will be evenly moistened.

  • Lack of fertilizer

Plants need proper fertilization. Use fertilizers recommended for the specific type of plant.

  • Pest infestation

Insect attacks can lead to the death of the plant if timely measures are not taken.

  • Unsuitable soil

Different plants have different soil preferences. Therefore, choosing the right type of soil when planting is very important.

  • Unfavorable location

The need for sunlight varies from plant to plant. Before bringing flowers home, you should first study their need for sunlight.

  • Lack of drainage

Drainage provides ventilation and watering control.

  • Seasonal changes

Plants' need for water and fertilizers can vary depending on the season.

Superstitions associated with flower wilting

  • Energy absorption

According to popular belief, indoor plants absorb the energy of space. Constant conflicts and negative emotions at home can be reflected in the plants, which is why they begin to wither.

  • Protection from negativity

According to other beliefs, wilting plants can mean the removal of negative energy from the environment. Thus, a wilted plant can be seen as a protective sign.

  • Health and good luck

The wilting of indoor plants may be associated with the prediction of illness or financial difficulties for the inhabitants of the house.
