Houseplants looking sick? The plant doctor answers your questions

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hi neighbours,
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions about their sickly plant babies. Houseplants might be fashionable, but they can be tricky to get right. Whether it’s the wrong light, too much or too little water, or a pesky draft, it doesn’t take much for your prize peace lily to turn yellow or an infestation of bugs to set in.

We put some of your houseplant questions to the plant doctors from Kings Plant Barn to diagnose. Find their answers here.

What is you body reflecting back at you?

Lynne from Cherrybarn Bowen

So here's a question.
What stories is your mind telling you or replaying?
very time you notice.

That ache again
The tight jaw
Your energy dropping
The scratchy throat....

Is there a pattern?

If there is then next time do the opposite to what you brain is feeling.
Stretch.
Relax the jaw and smile.
Stand up and move, get outside and walk, jump up and down if it feels right.
Do something you enjoy.

It's the old saying "mind over matter"
