Very often in winter, indoor plants have the same disease - the tips of the leaves dry out. This problem is quite common. This happens due to the fact that the upper part of the plants, which is above the soil, lacks water, even with abundant watering. And this happens during the heating season, when the humidity drops.
How to solve the problem
There are several things you need to do to help plants:
- remove flowerpots from any heat source, including batteries;
Some flowers cannot be irrigated. These are plants with a "fluffy" leaf surface, like geraniums.
For irrigation, you must take filtered water or settled and always slightly warm. You can take melted snow, only the snow must be clean, just fallen. There are experts who believe that this particular water is very useful.
Often, the leaves begin to dry out due to an increase in the temperature regime in the room. The air temperature in the range from 27 degrees Celsius to 32 is required only for some tropical plants. But they are much more often grown not at home, but in greenhouses. As a result, if it is hot in an apartment or house in winter, the plants can not only start to get sick, but even die altogether. And they are in the majority.
Thus, if the first leaves with dried out tips appear, it is immediately recommended to check the temperature regime in the room. Provided that the temperature is high, the flowers should be rearranged to another room, where it is six to ten degrees lower.
Also, dry leaf tips in winter can be a symptom that the plant is weakened. And it does not depend at all on the quality of care. In this case, drafts are the culprit. Therefore, along with other important points, it is worth protecting flowers from drafts.
