The latest in plant care tips for keeping your foliage happy and healthy, brought to you by premium plant delivery service Léon & George.

Who doesn’t love a little pampering? Spring is the best time to treat your plants to some extra TLC through dusting, pruning, and trimming! Here’s how:

  1. Dust your plant’s leaves by supporting the underside of the leaf and wiping the surface with a damp sponge or microfiber cloth. Repeat every 2-3 weeks to keep them shiny and vibrant.

  2. Prune off any unruly stems using sharp scissors or gardening shears. Cut at a 45 degree angle to help with future growth and don’t over prune! Leave at least 80-90% of your plant’s growth intact as to not shock your plant.

  3. Trim off the browning edges of your plants’ leaves but be sure to still leave a thin sliver of brown at the tip. This will avoid opening a fresh wound in your plants’ leaf (fresh wounds cause stress on plant growth). Browning at the leaf’s edge is usually a result of overwatering, so consider our watering tips if this is a reoccurring issue for you.
