Kokedamas are beautiful and super cute to decorate any corner of your home. However, sometimes we encounter a common problem: the tips of the leaves dry out and turn brown, which can be a sign of plant distress. In this article, we will explore the possible causes of this phenomenon and provide some practical solutions to keep our plants healthy and beautiful.
Lack of adequate watering: One of the most common factors leading to dry leaf tips is lack of adequate watering. If plants do not receive enough water, leaves can become dehydrated, starting at the tips.
Sun exposure and excessive heat: Some plants are more sensitive to direct sunlight and high temperatures than others. Prolonged exposure to intense sun can cause rapid evaporation of moisture from the leaves, resulting in dry tips.
Low ambient humidity: Many tropical and humid-climate plants require relatively high humidity levels to thrive. If the environment is dry, especially indoors with heating or air conditioning, leaf tips may dry out.
Solutions and care:
Water adequately: Be sure to water your plants with adequate frequency. Check soil moisture before watering again. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to waterlogging and damage the roots. On the other hand, do not allow the soil to dry out completely before watering again.
Monitor sun exposure: Watch how your plant reacts to direct sunlight and heat. If you notice that the tips of the leaves are drying out due to excessive sun exposure, consider moving it to a more suitable location or providing partial shade during the hottest part of the day.
Increase humidity: If you find that your kokedama needs to be in a more humid environment, you can spray it with a little water.
By following these tips you can prevent the leaves from drying out and keep your plants looking beautiful!
