There’s something special about watching plants grow and produce life as a new leaf, shoot or stem.
When a plant slows down and stops growing, it can be frustrating, especially if there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it. However, it's surprisingly common, and there are several reasons why it happens.
The most common reason your plant may have slowed down is that it's not getting enough nutrients, such as natural light or warmth. When plants are in panic mode, they may drop leaves and extremities, so their food doesn't have to travel far. Other signs include yellowing or thin leaves and a loss of variegation in variegated plants.
The obvious solution is to ensure they're getting what they need.
If your plant has suddenly taken a turn for the worse, it could be infested with common houseplant pests like aphids or fungus gnats.
Try wiping the plant's leaves with diluted washing liquid, neem oil or Bloombox club's naturally bug-repellent spray.
After many years in one pot, plants will have exhausted their soil’s nutrients, and their roots may have filled every available space.
Your plants are rootbound when:
If your plant is rootbound, transfer it to a bigger pot.
If you can't seem to find any cause, chances are it's just reached its final size.
Houseplants can have an upper limit when it comes to growth. Some houseplants are bred to be slow-growing, so they can be used as decor without taking over your living room.
