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

Life happens, even to our living house plants.

If you just bought a houseplant and it drops a leaf...
Stay calm
If the tips of the leaves are turning yellow or brown...
Stay calm
If there's a leaf or two with holes...
Stay calm

Make small measured adjustments to your plant's access to light, OR it's watering schedule OR the temperature in its space, OR give it insect repellent, then sit back and wait.

Plants react to adjustments with delay. Give any changes you're making at least 1-2 weeks to see results. Don't move your plant 3 times in one week, or suddenly double its water. Plants can be extremely resilient and adaptable if given the chance!

Stay calm, be patient, and enjoy as nature works its healing magic.
