How to save a dying plant

How many of you panic when leaves of your plant turn yellow , stem gets brown and roots tend to rot.
Don’t panic as you and plant still have hope before its sad and final demise.

Most of us assume that we should water the plant keep on draining it. (I also tend to do the same and end up being upset)
Getting too much of something or too little fluctuates the health of the plant.

1.Over watering may cause leaves to turn brown or yellow and soil may be moist.Solution – Keep the plant in sunlight and water it lightly. Repot the plant with new soil.

2.Under watering may cause leaves to turn yellow and dry and soil becomes hard and dry.Solution – keep the plant in Moist areas and avoid sun a bit with light watering.

3.Avoid watering plants at night only do so if the plant is wilted or else it may cause diseases.

9.Place some gravel or plant mesh at the bottom to give the plant even more room to drain.
